Our Lives Depend on Her

She could no longer see the ocean through the white haze of the horizon from the small window of the plane. With her eyes, she followed the dips and┬ácurves of the ground below. It reminded her of an old woman with the cracks and wrinkles of aged skin. She wondered how old the Earth would…

Wanderlust

A few weeks ago, I had applied for a 2 week travel writing mentorship to the Balkans through World Nomads Insurance and the winner was announced the other week. For some reason I just had this really good feeling that I was going to get the mentorship, despite the low odds (over 8,000 entries!). However,…

“Remember Love” Check In

Hello Readers! It’s almost the weekend and I absolutely can’t wait. Already a week into being 31! I’m going to blink and be 60 like my parents. I wanted to check in and let you know how my “Remember Love” month is going. As a reminder, see the list of my goals this month: Quit…

Oh Happy Days!

Today is my birthday! Though it’s not a very exciting one (already past the 30 threshold), celebrating with friends and family always puts me in a super good mood! It was a tiring work week trying to get a deliverable done and I decided to take off my birthday last minute and just refresh. I…

April – Remember Love

It’s time for the next chapter in my Live Happier Project! My marriage was the next on my list to work on in my life, as habits and routine can bog down a relationship. Though Jordan and I have been married less than a year, we have been together for 5 1/2 and living together…

Working With The Full Moon

Happier Sleep

As my readers know, I am fighting a losing battle on getting enough sleep in general and sticking to a strict schedule due to my natural tendency towards being a night owl. I came upon a couple of interesting articles that may explain how your DNA could determine your sleeping patterns. Some people can get…

Get Physical – Week 1 – How Did I do?

Y’all the weather has been AMAZING here in Atlanta. I am so lucky to live so close to the Beltline and in a walkable neighborhood in the city with funky characteristics to keep me entertained on my walks. Since starting March 2nd, I’ve walked 5 times for 30 min or more and have reached my…

Daily Inspiration – 2

Happy Tuesday! One more day closer to the weekend, woohoo! I haven’t been on Pinterest in a while since my wedding (when I may have been a tad obsessed). When I use it though, I usually just┬ásave away without looking back at the pins, unless it’s a yummy recipe to try. I do have one…

March – Get Physical

Holy Moly! Is it really March already?!? I feel like we just got out of the Christmas fog and now we are preparing for St. Paddy’s day and Spring! It certainly has been Spring-like weather in Atlanta, which has put me in a way happier mood! Well I’m a couple of days behind on this…

My 12 Personal Commandments

In my 1st post I mentioned that I would share my 12 personal Commandments as I go through my year to happiness. These acts of mindfulness or principles/resolutions that I will try to adhere to while working on the different areas of my life. I kept some of the ones that Gretchen Rubin outlined in…

Daily Inspiration – 1

I saw this quote today up at a local coffee shop and thought it was so true in so many aspects of life, so I wanted to share. “Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?” – Rumi My personal prison is going down a career path that I know…
