    Failure is NOT an Option

    “DON’T SIT IN DARKNESS. REACH FOR THE LIGHT.” I read this quote recently and couldn’t seem to get it off my mind! As I drove past a local church, I noticed the sign out front. (It’s well known for their clever phrases & memorable quotes, but this one really stuck with me!) Thought provoking if you must. To me, it means that we shouldn’t ever be afraid to try something new! Great things never came from comfort zones… It wasn’t until after my high school graduation that I suddenly became very aware of how mundane my everyday life was. Sad as it sounds, I was going through that routine, “hamster wheel…

    Don’t Worry, Be Happy

    “…In every life we have some trouble, But when you worry you make it double. DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY…” This song holds a very special place in my heart. It’s gotten me through many hard times, and it just has that tune that can instantly bring your mood up! I’m sure you have a song like that too. !! Stop what you’re doing, go leave me a comment with your favorite song that always makes you happy !! When you think about it, humans are just so complex! We love, we hate, we laugh, we cry. So many emotions that we go through–EVERY SINGLE DAY. It’s hard to understand, and…

    Take the Risk or Lose the Chance

    As humans, I feel as though we tend to get caught up in life as we know it. Many of us being too afraid to go out on that limb and to take that chance…even when it is something we want SO bad. The question is, “Are YOU willing to take that risk before it’s out of your grasp??” I know I probably sound like a broken record just going onnnn and onnnn about the same old thing. But this is truly something that holds a special place in my heart. I want to live my whole life, on MY terms–doing what I love–for ME! Is that too much to…

    Everything Happens For a Reason

    If you haven’t yet noticed–I am a bit obsessed with quotes. Most of my Instagram captions and blog posts are chalked full of them! (Pinterest is a serious addiction as well) And luckily, we will never run out! As long as people are talking, we will have things to quote. Simple as that. Whether it’s from a children’s book that we all know and love, or a catchy song that we play on repeat, there are words all around us that we can live by. In my opinion, it’s a perfect way to bring people together. Life is confusing enough on it’s own, it’s nice to have something to bring us…

    Collect Moments NOT Things

    When was the last time you did something for YOU? Solely for the memories. Not for the amount of likes you will receive…not for the amount of followers you will gain…   In this day and age, it is harder than ever to do things without showing them off! Instagram posts, Snapchat stories, Facebook statuses and Tweets… So many outlets, why wouldn’t we want to use them!? Don’t get me wrong–social media is a bad habit of mine too, and I’m positive I have over exposed my fair share of memories! But it’s what we do best! It’s how we’ve grown up!! Can you really blame me? When you sit…
