• A Bit Of Humility Goes A Long Way If there’s one thing that immediately makes me turn around and walk away from a person, it’s a lack of humility. Sure, you do great things and there are a million reasons to be proud of yourself. In fact, under the right circumstances it might even be okay to brag about your accomplishments. But foregoing […] No responses June 13, 2017
  • How I Save Money At The Grocery Store For a while, I would wake up every Saturday morning, head out the door and eventually find myself down at the local farmer’s market. There was a feeling that I would get upon arriving there – everything was fresh, crisp, and new just like the morning. I looked forward to the sights and the smells, […] No responses June 7, 2017
  • I Didn’t Stand A Chance A few years ago, I had just recently moved from Atlanta, Georgia to San Francisco, California and found myself adjusting to an all new life out on the west coast. For years, ever since my first visit to Los Angeles as a young teenager, I had dreamed of the day when I could move out […] 2 responses June 6, 2017
  • It’s Time To Cut Out Those Negative Friendships I’ve been wanting to write about friendship a lot recently but haven’t yet figured out exactly how best to approach the topic. It seems like a simple enough topic – you’re either friends with someone or you’re not – but in the age of social media, smart phones, and busier than ever lives, sometimes it’s […] No responses May 12, 2017
  • The Downside of Preaching Positivity When asked if I’m an optimist or a pessimist, I usually go with pessimist…maybe more realist than anything, but my point is I’m not known for my optimism.

  • If You’re Reading This From Your Comfort Zone, I’ve Got Something To Tell You Today I did something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but have let nerves get in the way – I booked myself for an exercise class. I’ve always been shy and anxious, and the idea of being around people I don’t know for the entirety of a class has always stopped me […] One response May 5, 2017
  • If You Know What’s Good For You, You’ll Give Up The other night during my weekly twitter chat, I posed a question that got me thinking. I asked, “what’s something you’ve given up on?” We’ve all given up something – whether it’s a bad habit, a food that we knew wasn’t good for us, etc – so it’s not something that can be summed up […] No responses May 4, 2017
  • How You Can Break Out Of Your Mood Funk I don’t know what happened the other day, but I was in one of the worst moods I’ve ever been in. EVERYTHING was making me angry. I sat next to a fan and was frustrated by the way the air “whooshed” past my ears. I was annoyed by the music playing outside of my apartment […] No responses April 27, 2017
  • Read This If You Overthink Everything I’ve always been one of those people who overthinks everything. Growing up, I was the kid who freaked out over the “what ifs” and the “maybes.” Teachers would tell me not to overthink what was happening, friends and loved ones would tell me not to read into things more than necessary, and I spent night […] One response April 21, 2017
