“It’s Too Soon for That”

It's too soon for that

Here’s the Thing… Awhile back, I was discussing with a co-worker some things that I thought should be updated on the company’s website. It wasn’t anything drastic, just some adjustments that I felt would be more professional and would better reflect the company. My co-worker objected with the reasoning that since we were not yet at the level where we…

My Words to Live By

My Words to Live By

Here’s the Thing… I love quotes. I especially love finding quotes that perfectly sum up where you’re at or where you’re going. In this post, I am sharing a few quotes that I feel accurately describe where my life currently is, as well as a few that point to where I am headed. “Quality over quantity.” This literally applies to…

Purposeful Progress: Personal Goals

Purposeful Progress: Personal Goals

Here’s the Thing… Up to this point, all the goals I have been aiming for in 2018 have been pretty big, lifestyle change goals. However, I think it is also important to have smaller, more practical goals too. Maybe it’s just me, but if I don’t write things down and have an action plan, they will never get done. So,…

In Pursuit of my Dreams

In Pursuit of my dreams

Here’s the Thing… I have had dreams before, but I have very rarely put actions behind those dreams to make them goals and then, hopefully, one day, reality. Some examples include becoming a marine biologist, becoming a vet tech or becoming an admissions counselor at Biola. Those were all big, important dreams to me, but when it came time to…

The Benefits of Speaking Out

The benefits of speaking out

Here’s the Thing… A few months ago I started the job I currently have now. The first couple weeks were a little dull, as I was still just getting into the swing of things.

How to Survive a Music Festival

How to Survive a Music Festival

Here’s the Thing… I am a big fan of live music. Even if I don’t know the band at all, I will still enjoy myself just because I love the energy that comes from concerts so much. I went to my first concert when I was 14 and have been tagging along with my mom to concerts ever since. However, music…

Purposeful Progress: Blogging Goals

Purposeful Progress: Blogging Goals

Here’s the Thing… I have wanted to start a blog for as long as I can remember. Actually, I have started blogs in the past, but I never kept up with them. I have this problem where I get really motivated about something, but then I become uninterested shortly after. I’m sure lots of people have experienced that cycle. Well,…
