I went to sleep December 31st, 2017, tired and unable to think… I woke up, 3:30AM on January 1st, 2018 filled with a fire to take on the world. However, before I jump into the purpose of this blog, let me introduce myself.
I am a 23 year old Aspirationist, yes I know that’s not a real word, but I aspire to be the best that I can be, I aspire to inspire, I aspire to lift others up. Therefore, I consider myself to be an Aspirationist. In addition to my love for writing, I also enjoy trying out new makeup looks, researching the latest fashion and trends, and finding simple life hacks to make life easier. I also love to bake and create new recipes of any sort in the kitchen. I am married to a wonderful man and together we have the sweetest little Sheprador (German Shepherd/Lab Mix). I wake up early in the morning between 3 and 3:30AM so that I can teach Chinese students English, and I also play a role as what is called a Peer Support Specialist, helping people with depression and anxiety overcome the challenges that come with these disabilities.
So now that you know me a little, I look forward to getting to know you. Follow my posts, comment, share and I will do my best to respond and keep the content coming. The main purpose of this blog is to uplift and inspire. I will share tips on mental health, physical health, ways to stay motivated, improve self confidence, and ways for your to become your best self yet. I will also include stories from my real, everyday life that show that you are not alone, you can do anything you put your mind and heart into!
2017 was a year of new chapters and trials, but 2018 is going to be a year of fulfillment and success. And as a woman who loves to write and read, you’ll often find quotes slipped into my posts, such as this:
“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties”. – Helen Keller
Make 2018 your best year yet!
