    Go where you feel most alive

    Go where you feel most alive: finding work-life freedom

    Since it’s #selfcaresunday I thought I’d chat about something that’s been on my heart for awhile now. One of the biggest acts of self-care you can commit is to take a hard look at your life and make bold changes as needed. It’s not always as fun or Instagrammable as bubble baths and wine; sometimes it’s hard or even scary. But if you don’t chase what sets you on fire, you’ll never really live.

    #30before30: surviving vs. thriving: shifting your mindset

    Surviving vs. thriving: shifting your mindset

    I’m cleaning out the old photos on my phone and I stopped on this one from a year ago.

    What a difference a year makes!

    You can tell how burnt out I was by my eyes. I was stuck in a job that I HATED with a passion. (And I no longer feel bad for saying so!)

    And because I was unhappy with the thing that occupied half my waking life, I wasn’t taking the best care of myself. Physically—drinking too much coffee and wine, not eating well, not exercising, not sleeping enough. (And it shows on my face! #glowup) But also mentally and emotionally—neglecting what made me happy and focusing on negativity. I was basically just surviving.
