    May 2019 Personal Growth Goals

    I'm writing this from my bed in the middle of a work day with puffy cheeks and a half numb lip. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Monday, so the past three days have consisted of sleeping, eating ice cream, watching Fixer Upper reruns, and eating more ice cream. There was some nerve damage during the procedure, so I'm just sitting here praying that I'll be able to feel half of my face again sooner rather than later.

    My Minimalist Bullet Journal

    This is now my fourth year using a bullet journal and I love it! Over the years, my style has gone from busy and colorful to simple and classic. I know we, bullet journal enthusiasts, enjoy getting a sneak peek into others' journals, so I've decided to share my minimalist bullet journal with you.

    April 2019 Personal Growth Goals

    March was one of those months that was really long but, somehow, went by so quickly. The course I'm taking for my MA right now is a TON of work, so I spent most of the month focused on schoolwork – reading a million academic journals and writing a literature review that took way too long to finish. At times, I felt like I was heading towards burnout again, but with some of the mindset skills I've learned over the past few months, I was able to take a step back, identify the stressors, and change the way I was thinking about them.

    How to Organize Your Month with Trello

    Between working full-time, running a business, and studying for my MA (not to mention keeping the house clean and everything else that comes with life), my days are pretty busy. Every day is a balancing act of work, school, business, home, marriage, and friends. Oftentimes, I get so caught up in each day that I forget to think about the week or even the month. Before I know it, an entire month has gone by and many of the things that I had hoped to accomplish that month are left undone. Enter Trello.

    March 2019 Personal Growth Goals

    February was an incredible month for me. I started out feeling burnt out and overwhelmed, but through focusing on rest and showing myself grace, I now feel so ready to take on the world again. Although, I know this time that I need to take things slow. While I want to do big things in March, I'm going to focus on doing a few things well, instead of focusing on a lot of little things.
