You have a dream.
You have a dream to become someone, to achieve something, to create something. Maybe it’s all three, but either way, you have an idea in your head of what you want your life to look like and who you want to be eventually.
I know this because I have a dream. I dream of being a published author, having financial freedom, having a family, supporting my mother, moving to NYC, and living a life I’m proud of. Those are my dreams and aspirations.
For all of that to come to fruition, I’ve had to do a…
Have you ever wondered why it’s so easy for other people to be productive?Have you ever felt motivated to do certain things, only to have that drive dry out within a few days? Have you ever felt discouraged or frustrated when the people around you discuss their goals and how they’ve read 75 books and wrote 9 on top of maintaining a healthy body? Meanwhile, you’re still struggling with the third chapter of the book you’ve been trying to read for the last 2 months?
As women, I’m convinced that we overanalyze and overthink our relationships so much so that we inevitably convince ourselves that our partners don’t love us to the extent that they truly do.
I came to this conclusion fairly recently, but the makings of this topic came to mind about a year ago when my partner and I visited his parents in Chicago for the holidays.
In short, it ended terribly, and I discovered that his mother loathes me. …
Abs, great smile, he’s definitely got to be loaded (obviously), obsessed with me (in a healthy way, duh), and nice eyes.
Did I cover it?
I’m only kidding; I will admit, though, I’ve always had a thing for a guy with a great smile; I mean, if I’m going to wake up to you and talk to you all the time, I’d like to at least look at a pretty picture.
All jokes aside, though, everybody has a different perspective on the qualities they find most attractive in a man. …
I never thought I would be someone who moves in with her partner without first getting married.
I wasn’t raised that way, it never appealed to me, and I had personal reasons as to why I didn’t want to do it. Other things came to mind too when I thought about it, for instance: What if they’re not as clean as I am? What if they can’t handle me on a daily basis? What if I can’t handle them on a daily basis?
Most importantly, I adore my independence. When I first moved to LA, my schedule consisted of nothing…
I’m somebody who likes to categorize everything in life. For example, if you take a look at my pantry, you’ll see the pasta, rice, and such on the bottom shelf.
In the middle, you’ll see granola and various healthy snacks. Accessible — but I do have to stand on my tiptoes to reach for anything. Top shelf? “Naughty” snacks. My favorite dark chocolate-covered pretzels hide there, with my salt and vinegar potato chips. I have to climb the counter to reach those.
The rest of my house is similar to my kitchen, everything is organized, and nothing goes where it…
There was a time in my life where I would go to the grocery store, see a cute guy, and wonder what our kids would look like.
There were times where I would casually walk by someone, and I’d wonder if they were falling in love with me. It felt like second nature to jump into thoughts of a life together before even figuring out his name.
Occasionally, those fleeting moments would turn into something more. I’m not shy when it comes to relationships; I’ll say what I want. …
Do you feel like you don’t have time to do anything nowadays? Including work, your favorite hobbies, sometimes even making dinner?
I’ve been reckless with my time management lately. Spending too much time surfing through social media, and not enough time doing what I love most; investing in myself and living life to the fullest.
According to a poll on Gallup, 61% of working Americans say they don’t have enough time to do what they want. In addition to that, 68% of people feel like they aren’t getting enough rest.
Chances are, you’re busy. You’re running from one errand to…
“Every time I meet someone new, I get so excited. Could this possibly be it? Can this turn into something more? As the night progresses, my excitement dims. Am I ever going to find a partner that truly makes me feel like it’s the right fit? Dating feels like a part-time job. I don’t know if I can keep doing this.”
Sound familiar? Or maybe this is you,
“Whenever I meet a great guy, things are good . . . at first. We have great conversations; we talk about the future and our goals. I feel the connection. However, as…
Many people preach that you should always choose quality over quantity.
However, it all comes down to what works best for you and where you’re currently at in your life. For instance, if your goal is to become a content creator on YouTube, but you’ve never filmed or edited YouTube videos before, then going down the quantity route is your best option so you could learn and become better at the craft.
For someone who has a 9–5 job and a family, producing a ton of content might not be tangible so focusing more on quality is a better option.
