I know it’s been a minute since I posted any new content so I wanted to fill you all in on my life lately. And before you say anything yes I did not include any photos or videos on this post like I normally do because I really wanted this post to be authentic and focus on the content. So I’m going to keep it real with you and I’m posting this tonight!
The past few months have been very stressful and overwhelming for me personally. I think as a 20-something there is this societal pressure to be everything all at once and that can be tough.

I would encourage anyone who is at a loss for inspiration to pick up a book or read a news article and listen to a podcast that speaks to you.
Tap into that energy that makes you excited to get out of bed in the morning. Also know that the energy you bring into the room shows up in every person you touch and all aspects of your life.
Allow that energy to grow inside of you organically and heal the parts of you that are weak because you are worth it. Most importantly let your passion lead you in new and exciting directions.
UNSUBSCRIBE TO FAILURE
For many of us who are post graduates it can be devastating when you don’t land the dream job you’ve been waiting for and suddenly it feels like your friends are lightyears away from you.
Adding to that a global pandemic and it’s natural to feel like you’re a complete failure. And for me I think what truly stopped me from feeling l
