Life isn’t about getting and having, it’s about giving and being. – Kevin Kruse

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover. –Mark Twain

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. –Alice Walker

Let’s Change The World

Happy Earth Day!

I’m very excited to have had a post published on Elite Daily today titled, How To Not Feel Insignificant When Trying To Fight Global Climate Change.” Woooo! I’m a huge proponent of helping the environment. From using reusable bags (not just when grocery shopping, but for ANY shopping!) and avoiding plastic utensils, to unplugging unused cords (your chargers are still using energy even if there’s no phone/laptop/camera plugged into them!) and turning off lights — there are so many small steps we can take to ensure a long life for planet Earth.

This world can be really shitty at times, but let’s all take a second to remember how beautiful it can be too.

Word Nerd Wednesday

Happy Hump Day, y’all! The book I just finished is called Big Cherry Holler by Adriana Trigiani. My grandma recently gave me a HUGE bag of books that my grandpa said “even the library wouldn’t take.” hahaha

p.s. my grandma is fab, just look at her–

So naturally, she gave all the books to me. And inside that bag was BCH. I read it having no idea that it was actually a sequel to a book called, Big Stone Gap. Even so, I enjoyed the story and image1would recommend it. Filled with funny friendships, marriage drama, love, loss and a trip to Italy – this book definitely kept me entertained.

Thoughts? What should I read next? Let me know!
