    Some New (And Old) Goals for March: Resolutions 2018

    Resolutions from February Here’s a recap of what I focused on in February, if you’re interested: Don’t look at my phone first thing in the morning. Success! I thought this one would be harder, but I actually found it pretty peaceful to leave my phone on my nightstand as I went about the rest of my morning. I got out the door faster, too, since I wasn’t getting sucked into the Instagram-vortex first thing. Scroll through Instagram less. I feel like I half-way did this? To be honest, I’ve just been a lot busier this month, so I haven’t had the same kind of downtime to dick around on my phone. I…

    What I’m Focusing On This February : Resolutions 2018

    My Favorite Moments of 2017 & A Few Things I’m Really Proud Of

    I actually can’t believe this year is over! It’s gone by so fast, but, not gonna lie, I feel like it lasted forever. Hands down, I have grown more this year than any other. The person I was in January is completely different than the person I am now in December. I’m more independent and confident in every aspect of my life and I’m so proud of that. But, wow, did it come with some challenges. 2017 certainly wasn’t the year that I wanted, but it was absolutely the year that I needed. A few things that I’m particularly proud of myself for this year: Doing more things by myself.…
