So, I frequently follow and love influencers. I can't help it, they make their lives look cool and I believe it. I really want to do stuff like that, but I always stop myself because I know my set up won't be as cool as theirs or the lighting will be off or I will … Continue reading Influencers
Health & Fitness Goals
I've been finding it helpful and motivating to talk about my goals on my blog. Something about publicizing my plans and goals makes me more determined to at least attempt them and keep up with them. I'm not even certain how many people read this, but it feels like people do and those people are … Continue reading Health & Fitness Goals
Take Me To The Lakes
When I was younger, I devoured books. I read so fast, I could finish two or three hundred paged books on plane flights. Reading inspired me to write. I started writing stories when I was eight or nine years old. This love of reading and writing has followed me throughout my life. I claim the … Continue reading Take Me To The Lakes
One of the things I've been struggling with reconciling lately is my desire for authenticity. I feel like so much of life is spent pretending to be someone you are not or struggling to fit yourself into a box that someone else wants you in. In school you make sure you fit in with your … Continue reading Authenticity
I am really very determined to make a difference in this world. When I look around at the world I see the hurt. There are so many people suffering. I want to help. I don't know how. Right now my activism is very small. I am still working on making my small corner of the … Continue reading Difference
Where Did My Deconstruction Start?
Time to talk genuine issues. Maybe I’m off base, but I have a feeling that if you talk to most christians who are deconstructing, the number one, if not at least in the top three, issue would be the church’s stance on LGBTQ issues. I’m sure most of you will have seen the news that … Continue reading Where Did My Deconstruction Start?
I'm really bad at sticking to a routine. But the weird part is, I really romanticize routine. Like ever since college, I've dreamt of the day where I have my own place and a job, and I would imagine what a "day in the life" would look like. In this ideal world, I'm getting up … Continue reading Routines
It's really hard sometimes to step out of your own perspective. People always say, "put yourself in their shoes." But that's a lot easier said than done. I think this world would be a vastly different place if more people thought about the perspectives of others' outside of their own culture/experience/upbringing. Of course, you never … Continue reading Conflict
I used to think I was an ambitious person, but the older I get the less that appeals to me. I like many of my peers was a high-achieving or "gifted" child in school. I was one of the lucky ones for who the current American Public Education system wasn't actively inhibiting me from learning. … Continue reading Ambition
