Stop Saying I'm Busy

When was the last time you said you were busy? Was it in the last hour, within the day, or within the week? I would have to think that most could say they have used that phrase at least once in the last week. I know it's true for me.

We live in a culture that glamorizes the word busy. How many times have you been asked the basic question, "How have you been?" or "What's new?" and you answered by saying you have been just so busy. I know I am one of the first to admit that I have been there and I have said that too many times to count and I honestly didn't think too much of it until recently. While yes, I often argue to the fact that everyone is busy and that's never a real excuse. But I didn't think about it too much or really how much I, along with the rest of society say it.

It really hit me as I listened to a Podcast the other day while running where they talked about our "Busy Culture" and that terrible "B word". The girl…

A Catalog of Thoughts

It has been months since I have touched this corner of the internet. I have had both friends and family remark on the lack of posts, and truthfully I have thought of it on and off. I wanted to write, but so many other things took precedence. I never wanted this blog to be something I had to do, but rather something I did and something I wrote about when the thoughts came and that blogging inspiration struck. It has definitely taken the back burner over the past few months, but as I have thought more about it recently, I am realizing I have so much to write, and so many thoughts that I want to get out. After all, this blog always served as the best way for me to truly organize my thoughts and really allowed me to put pen to paper (...or fingers to keys) with all of the ideas and thoughts running in my brain.

You Have Worth

Two thousand seventeen.

Oh my. This year will always be ingrained in my mind for one primary reason. Back in 2012 when I was applying to colleges, I was applying for the class of 2017. I began college in the fall of 2013, and anticipated going to school for four years and graduating, as we are "supposed" to. I quickly found out that summer and that fall that my life was far from typical and many things surrounding me were far from the things that were "supposed to happen". After Alex passed away I re-thought a lot of stuff, transferred schools, switched my major, and hopped on the five year college plan. Slowly I found my way into a really good place and was 100% fine with this five year deal. But having 2017 set in, I can't help but think about the original plans to graduate this year and the hype of "Class of 2017" when I started college back in 2013.

Well here we are just a few days into 2017 and I really want to take advantage of this new year, fr…
