I’ve learned this past year that it’s the little things in life that will make you happy. There was definitely a time where I used shopping to fill the void in my life. I really believed that these material items would make me happy only to sit in a room filled with clothes and nowhere to go. There are things, however, that brings me continuous joy so I invest in them. Board games, candles, my Bluetooth speaker, journals, etc. Last week I went to Paper Source, aka the best store in the entire world, and bought two new journals. One for creative thoughts, and one for work meetings.

Anyways, I’ve written a series of lists in my journal so I thought I would type them up and post them on my site. Here are some inspirational blurbs that I have scribbled down on the first page.

Lean towards joy.

What’s meant to be will be.

Be compassionate towards yourself.

Let go and let God.

Be your own Bae.

Do what feels right.

You can’t love them into loving you.

Structure your day to enjoy it.

SAVOR everything.

Be mindful.

Perfection is never the goal.

Life happens in seasons.

Resilience will take you far.

Complacency is dangerous.

Balance is BS! Live your life in sync (there are highs + lows) -> Find what works for you in each situation.


You’ll always adapt to a new normal.

This is just the beginning! You are well equipped for the ride of a lifetime.
