• Quality Over Quantity

    Quality over quantity is my rule of thumb when it comes to most aspects of life; but more importantly, with FRIENDS! Is your circle well rounded? Motivating? Inspiring & supportive? If you answered no to any of those, you may be entitled to friendship compensation… I know it sounds obvious, but having supportive people in your corner will make all the difference! Start paying close attention to how they react to your accomplishments & successes… Are they encouraging and proud of you!? Or snide and critical!? Don’t feel bad about being picky with who you let in, and always protect your heart. Start consciously surrounding yourself with ones that truly…

  • Make a Wish

    Have you ever felt like you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be? Lately I’ve been noticing “angel numbers” EVERYWHERE! 11:11, 2:22, 5:55… I catch myself glancing up at the clock at the perfect time each day! Of course the first time or two I kind of laugh to myself and say “make a wish”. But after the 4th or 5th time you start wondering what it could mean? If you Google search “angel numbers” lots will pop up! It’s very overwhelming and I’m not prepared to deep dive into that topic…but it’s so fascinating to see that each set means something special! Surprisingly enough, each one was dead accurate to…

  • 2020 Taught Me… (part 2)

    Last week we dove into the takeaways that 2020 gave us, and this week we will add a few more to the list! Despite the historical events that took place, I feel like a lot of good came out as well. We struggled and suffered along the way, but when we shift our mindset to recognize the positives, it shows exactly what lessons we were so lucky to learn through it all!  Here I present to you, 10 (more) things that 2020 taught us… You aren’t defined by your day job/career! Being unemployed or having to take time off can be difficult. It can make you feel lost or lacking…

  • 2020 Taught Me… (part 1)

    I recently reached out to you, my trustworthy friends, on social media and asked what lessons you learned from the monumental 366 days that was 2-0-2-0… Your replies blew me away; reminding me exactly why I LOVE what I do! This blog is such a fun way to bring people together and get insights from all walks of life. It inspires me and motivates me to write each and every week. For that, I say thank you! And without further ado, let’s jump into part one of the things that 2020 taught us. Self-Love is especially important in unprecidented times like these. When we’re stuck at home with only ourselves,…

  • Stop F*cking Settling

    Hi, I’m Taylor, and I like the word fuck. Blame my dad, he was in the Navy and I can confirm the saying “curse like a sailor” is true! I really debated on using such a harsh word in the title of this post, but that’s who I am, so why not? Staying true to this topic, it just felt right to speak my mind and be bold. Rest assured, while my mouth may not always be the softest, my heart is in the right place. So buckle up and let’s dive into the act of NOT F*CKING SETTLING! To put it lightly, settling will always leave the heart unsettled.…

  • Dear Future, I’m Ready

    “Your future needs you, your past doesn’t.” I wasn’t sure what to write this week’s post about, so I went to my trusty Pinterest search and looked up some inspiration. I scrolled and scrolled, closed my eyes, chose a quote and that was that! I honestly love this topic because it’s so simple yet so difficult for us to do. Back in 2019 I wrote about inhaling the future and exhaling the past, so I’ll touch on that a bit here too. Feel free to read it once you’re finished with this one–they’ll tie in quite nicely! Every single day we get a brand new opportunity to be different; to…

  • Write Your Own Story

    I MADE IT TO ARIZONA…the land of sunshine, blue skies, good vibes, and no daylight savings time! YES PLEASE! My new home on the west coast is absolutely everything I could’ve imagined it to be and more. My heart has truly never felt so happy! (probably because there’s literally a palm tree in my backyard now) In my 22 years of life, I’ve been around a place or two. Born on a naval air station in California, grew up in a smalltown in Missouri, experienced a year of city life in North Carolina…and now here I am. AZ. Finally! It truly feels like HOME. Ever since 2017, when Mitchell and…

  • The Power of Manifestation

    “In order to manifest it, you must believe in it’s inevitability.” The act of manifestation is very similar to those affirmations we talk about all the time. The “Law of Attraction” if you will. It’s the action of putting what you desire into the universe, channeling the energy to make it a reality! I truly believe that your thoughts are SO SO powerful…they control your mind, in turn controlling your life as well. Might as well make it good, right? Visualize your highest self and start showing up as her! Know what you want out of this life, and don’t stop until you get there! Whether that be in your…

  • Same Storm, Different Boat

    I heard a quote the other day that really stood out to me. It said: “WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME STORM, BUT NOT IN THE SAME BOAT.” Damn isn’t that true!? Especially in the midst of the chaos these days. The rain is relentlessly pouring down on us all, yet we have no idea the severity for each individual. Someone may have had years of practice, others may have a hole in the bottom of their boat…a broken sail…! Who knows? In my opinion, it is not right for a man on a big fancy cruise ship to criticize the man on a paddle boat. They are not even…

  • We’re All In This Together

    I’m not the first to say it, and I know I won’t be the last…but this month has been WILD! I’ve been in a brain fog and at an utter loss for words for the last week now. Trying desperately to understand it all and find some sort of normalcy amongst the chaos and uncertainty. Life as we knew it seems to be a faint memory now, and it feels like we’re living in a false reality or something. I love the airport analogy that I keep seeing on social media about how nothing makes sense…time doesn’t exist…there are no rules… It’s just blowing my mind how fast things escalated!…
