50 Things That Make Me Happy + What Are Yours?

List of 50 Things That Make Me Happy

50 Things That Make Me Happy + What Are Yours? It’s no secret that the last two, nearly three years of my life have been tough. I went through difficult, trying times. There were many “firsts” that I experienced during that time- most of which I wish I hadn’t. Being in a “rut” is definitely not as I’d describe it.

On Feeling Weak and Frustrated- a little blog + life update

How can one of the things that give you so much joy and fulfillment, suddenly become so difficult to even think about? Maybe it’s because you’re afraid you’ve failed. Or, maybe, it’s because it reminds you of how things used to be. Yes, the big “before everything happened.”  You know, I think that when life presents you with unexpected challenges, when everything seems to be falling apart, when you feel as if you, yourself are about to fall apart at…
