For those of you who know me, you know that my favorite season of the year is fall. Now that we're in September, I'm counting down the days - 12 to be exact! - until I can wear my boots, scarves, leggings, and sweaters. I love how cozy and comfortable I'm able to be in the crisp fall ...

A Different Turn

Have you ever had a crisis, reader? Maybe you have and thought you were crazy. Maybe you haven't and you've wondered why. Lately, I've been in quite the predicament. I feel like I'm going through this bizarre "quarter-life" crisis. (If you don't believe me, look it up. Apparently, it's actually a thing.) Essentially, it's something that people ...

The Perfection Trap

Let me begin by saying: it's a myth. No one is perfect, of that, I am certain. We sometimes live in a bubble, hoping we'll find out differently.

Failure Isn’t Final

How many times have you failed, reader? I don't know about you, but I can't stand the thought of failure. In a lot of ways, I'm a perfectionist. I like a challenge, but only if I deem it as one I can likely succeed at. I like taking risks, but it's often very calculated and ...
