    Is the quarter life crisis real?

    I have to say 2018 has been the start of my quarter life crisis... It's all to easy if you over think like I do... Like, what have I accomplished in the past 22 years? What about you? This can be such a great thing though. If it wasn't for this I wouldn't have run back to my dream of teaching and I wouldn't have pursued going back to school.

    Make the most of your life today!

    Big decisions Life is so short. I know, my older relatives have been telling me this my entire life and I ignored them for the first eighteen years of my life; I completely regret not taking the reigns and leading my life instead of just being a long for the ride and taking the easy option. All to often I though I was making the ‘right’ decision but it was normally the decision that was in front of me and sounded the most opinion. Two decisions I’ve made that I wouldn’t make again are when I withdrew from college to work full time and when I made the choice not…

For so many, success is having lots of money or being a household name, but I don’t believe that is what we should be pushing for. We’ve heard an endless amount of famous people say that money does not buy happiness and I think this is where true success comes into play. I think that true success comes in two different forms; the first one being the importance of what you leave behind you after…

    Motivational Monday 01

    I think the most important lesson I’ve learned in the past couple years is that life is what you make it. Don’t like your friend group? Make a new one. Don’t like your housing situation? Find a way out. Sometimes circumstances may be time consuming but there is usually a way out. It may be hard, but it’s always worth it if it results in your happiness. What would life be if everything was easy? If we didn’t have trials then we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the tribulations. I think you learn so much more about who you are as a person when nothing is going your way than…
