    What Goes Around, Comes Around

    “What goes around, comes around.” A very common saying that I’m sure you’ve heard a time or two…and that’s because it’s TRUE! Whether we are discussing karma itself, or the hit Justin Timberlake song from 2009, the general idea remains the same. It’s like the story in Galatians 6:7. “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.” If all you do is put out negativity, that’s all you will bring in. But on the flip side, if you live a positive and uplifting lifestyle, that’s what you will get in return!  A very simple strategy if you ask me. I want to share with you, a little experience that happened to me at…

    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…

    A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

    We’ve all heard the stories of Cinderella. Just an average girl, that was dealt a rough hand (and no, I don’t mean in poker). Guys, things were hard…she had struggle after struggle, but did she let that stop her!? Absolutely not. She dreamt of making a life for herself, and being exactly who she wanted to be. And let me tell you, home-girl was wise. She knew that it does no good to sit around WISHING, if you’re not actually DOING. Now of course, not all of us are lucky enough to get a sparkly fairy godmother, and a pumpkin-turned carriage…but that shouldn’t deter you from accomplishing whatever it is…

    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…
