I believe in a lot of things – in the value of family, the importance of friendship, in living your truth, in making every effort to make the world a better place. I also believe that sometimes, without meaning to, we lose track of the path to being our best selves.
We get busy, overbooked, overtired. We get anxious, angry, apathetic. I’m coming out of the most hectic season of my life so far, and although I’ve been incredibly lucky in all that’s surrounded me, I’ve forgotten to prioritize myself. I’ve gotten so busy doing that sometimes I forget that I’m living.
So, here I am. Bringing it back to me. Writing a friendly reminder to myself – and others – to enjoy the moment, to try new things, and to find ways to be creative. Life is meant to be lived, embraced. It gets messy and challenging, but it’s beautiful and inspiring too. I also believe that it’s important to pause for a glass of Prosecco. There’s always something to celebrate.
A little about me – I’m in my late 20s (how terrifying), a happy newlywed, a dedicated daughter, a loving sister, a busy friend, a working professional, a part time MBA student, an aspiring author, a quiet activist, a runner, a yogi, a reader, a planner, a volunteer, and so much more – and in need of a creative outlet! I am always wearing pearls, even in leggings with dirty hair, and I am always on the go. I try to look at the bright side of everything, but I do my fair share of complaining. Oh, and I love prosecco.
In an effort to be more present, to live life more for me than for my calendar, I’m embarking on a journey of reflection and adventure. Each week I’m going to try one new thing – a new recipe, a new craft, a new workout class, a new hairstyle – anything that’s just new. And I’ll let you know how it goes.
