Penny

I am so beyond overjoyed right now! My cousin had her baby yesterday! She is absolutely beautiful. Penelope (Penny). She has the roundest little cheeks that you just want to pinch and the cutest little legs. She came a two days late from her due date. 7 lbs 14 oz and is 20 1/2 inches. I can’t wait to meet her. It will be so long from now, I won’t meet her until September, but I just can’t wait!

When my grandma saw her picture, she started tearing up saying how beautiful she is! Her great granddaughter. My family is just filled with women. I have thirteen cousins on my moms side, and there are only four boys. I have five nieces from that side of the family, no boys lol. That’s okay. More than okay, that’s amazing! My cousins are such strong women, I know they will raise such beautiful little girls to be empowered and independent as they were growing up.

It will be a crazy day though when one of my cousins or sisters have a boy. Or even me, but that won’t be for a long, long, long, long time lol.

Sorry for the random post, but I am just so happy for my cousin and I needed to write about it <3. Hope you all are having a beautiful day!

Until next time…

Set It Up

Self-doubt sucks. I have been doubting myself for so long, I just stopped thinking I can do anything I set my mind to and I have been settling for so much in my career. I just gave up.

For the past few months I have been obsessed with this movie called Set It Up, it’s a Netflix original. It is just so relatable to now days and you know that’s exactly what they were doing. I feel so connected to the main character who is just to scared to put herself out there in the work force, afraid of rejection so she just stays in her assistant job, working for someone who makes her miserable but yet is her inspiration.

Living Life On Purpose

I love that quote. It’s from the book I was telling you guys about in the last post, You Are A Badass. At the end of Chapter 4 she is talking about one of her clients that go hit really hard with the Big Snooze where obstacle after obstacle hit him as he ventured off on his own trying to make his dreams happen. The poor man got hit by a bus! Among other intense crazy things that any other person would have thrown their hands up in the air and said screw it! I give up! But he didn’t. And this is the part where she says this:

…setting an excellent example for his kids about living life on purpose.”

Why Do We Do It?

How is it that some of the most intelligent and beautiful women let themselves be belittled and used just to feel desired? Why do we allow ourselves to become less so that we can feel wanted? When did we start doing less so that our loved one can feel like more? Why do we do it? Why is the most important thing in the world to be loved? Continue reading “Why Do We Do It?”

Sorry…

I have been a very shitty blogger lately. A lot has happened these last few months. I have been making some significant changes as you all know. I have been writing more (my book not here sadly), I have been just trying to learn who I am again.

Still not quite there yet with figuring out who I am exactly, but I am learning so much with what I used to do, and what I want to do now. Tennis has come back into play (yes pun intended). I have gotten back into dance, though I am still struggling to find a place to go. I have knitted like a madwoman, but I need to post pictures of it all here soon! Once this blazing hot summer cools down, I plan on getting back into hiking and biking. Continue reading “Sorry…”

We Live for Love

Hello all!

I had an interesting thought today, nothing unique or different. Nothing that hasn’t been spoken, or written, or sung. Of course, it’s about love. As of late, I let go of a love in my life. It hasn’t been easy, and it probably won’t be okay for a while, but I know in my heart I did the right thing. It hasn’t been good between us for a long time, I just had been the one to face it head-on. I took the step that neither of us wanted to take because we had gotten comfortable. But it wasn’t right anymore.  Continue reading “We Live for Love”

Story Time

Story-time!

I have started writing a book! Not just a book, I started writing a book series!!!! I am so excited about this; I don’t think I have ever been so excited about anything. I have wanted to write books since I was ten years old! I wrote stories all the time as a kid. I lost my way from writing books because I always thought that it wasn’t something realistic. But I have gotten feedback from family and friends, and I got to say they are some of my harshest critics. I think they really like the story plot! They have said so themselves that they love it! I have written out the first five chapters and have already written out the ending of each book (four by the way) I just need to come up with the world of the book. It’s a fantasy book based on a royal family struggling to gain back rule of their kingdom after a man steals it from them.
