Earlier this year I binged watched the show Younger on Hulu. [Don’t worry, I won’t give away any spoilers for people who might want to watch it at some point. 95% of what I’m mentioning from the first episode.] I used to always see the commercials for it on TVLand, but never watched it … More Why the show YOUNGER made me feel Hopeful . . .
When you were younger did you have a picture in your head of what you thought adulthood looked like?

I don’t know … More The Misconception I had about Adulthood.

(There’s still hope)
I overheard a very interesting dialogue this week. Not only did I hear this topic of discussion once, but thrice in the last 7 days. It was about people who wait for signs before making a decision. So many of us want to be sure so bad that we drag our feet and constantly … More Waiting for signs? (Making the right decision…)
What is your version of extraordinary? Does it line up with what you think the world’s version of extraordinary is? Or do you have your own definition? Growing up I always wanted to be great. I wanted to achieve great and have greatness thrust upon me, but what does that mean? Some people might … More Becoming Your Own Version of Extraordinary!
Today I was thinking about all the gray areas of life. As we age most of us come to the realization that everything is not as black and white as we thought. We don’t have all the answers and most things in life are unclear. We slowly find out that it’s common to not … More Teenage Confidence about the Future
Today I came across a journal prompt that really grasped my attention. It made me think about the past and future. The question was: What’s three things you’d do if you weren’t so afraid?
