Living with Intent

Recently I had a conversation with my good friend Laura about doing things with intent – making things happen instead of letting it happen to you. It came up because we were talking about how excited I was to be able to pick out what clothes I get to wear to work at my new job instead of having to wear a uniform, whitening my teeth because I’ve been embarrassed by the color, and meal prepping so I’m ready for the week.

“The Hustle” Isn’t for Everyone… And That’s Okay

In my last post, I mentioned looking for a new job, and I’m happy to announce that I’ve found one! Yay! I won’t say where for, ya know, privacy reasons, but it’s a company for which I’m very excited to work.

A lot of companies have noticed the trend and started making décor and party supplies to honor the day of female friendship and in my opinion, it’s usually cuter than the Valentine stuff.

But what do you do on Galentine’s Day? How do you celebrate it?

I’ve got you covered with a few ideas. Continue reading “Galentine’s Day – Date Ideas”

A New Take on New Year’s Resolutions

Alright, y’all, it’s time to talk New Year’s Resolutions. ⬅ Does that need to be capitalized? I don’t know. But we’re going with it. I try to do a post every year about them, whether it’s telling you all mine, or telling people to stop being assholes to people who want to make them.

This year I’ve come up with a list of some different resolution ideas for those that want to make them, but don’t necessarily feel comfortable with the typical ones. Continue reading “A New Take on New Year’s Resolutions”
