life is hard.

I’ve always been the type to march to the beat of my own drum and feeling sure in who I am. Maybe it’s how I was raised and all of the strong women I knew growing up. Maybe it’s the rebel Aquarius spirit in me. Either way, I’ve always felt like I was destined for… Continue reading life is hard.

keep on keeping on

As we all know, I am a busy bee. I am always tacking on some new project, trying to excel in my career/education, chasing a bag through a variety of side hustles, and still spending quality time with those I hold near to my heart.

I always told to never rely on one channel to bring in money. Always have some sort of hustle.

This morning I came across an article where someone claimed that detachment was the #1 thing they wanted to work… Continue reading Is Letting Go Always Necessary?
