This Is Why I keep Moving

why i keep moving

“Too often, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut, doing the same thing the same way over and over every day. But if we are going to live at our absolute best, we should constantly be growing and sharpening our skills. We should strive to learn and grow every single day because when you stop learning, you stop growing. When you stop growing, you stop living.

My Last Two Months

travel solo traveling around the world

I have been living in New York City for nearly 11 years now, and I think I finally understand the meaning of the phrase, In a New York Minute….”

My last two months have been a whirlwind. Between packing up my entire beloved apartment, to finishing work assignments, my brain sometimes has a hard time comprehending what’s happening. For instance, I’ll be halfway through an email when I start  thinking “Did I pack the coffee machine?”. Disoriented is a real thing!

There Are No Shortcuts To Success

There Are No Shortcuts To Success

One of the greatest things that came from graduating college into a recession is it forced many of us to pursue our creative dreams from the get go. There weren’t many jobs, so we created our own. What I’ve seen along the way though are a lot of entrepreneurs who want success and want to take short cuts to get there. If there is one thing that I’ve learned in the last 6 years is that, there are no shortcuts to success.

Everything’s Changing! How Do You Cope With Fear Amidst the Change

How Do You Cope With Fear Amidst the Change

Hi my loves! I wanted to take a quick minute to write about what’s happening in my personal life. I think it is something many can relate to, which is the scariness of change. They say “The only thing that is constant is change.”

I am sitting amongst piles of books and electronics and brown boxes as I type this article. I had no idea I would be moving so quickly, or that I would be setting off for an insane adventure so soon into the new year. But that is exactly what is happening. This time around, though, I am not fighting the Universe.

Why Investing In Yourself Is Important

Hi my loves! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to a New Year. I know this is the time many are ambitiously working on new goals. As a kid, I would dread January.

What If You Treated Your Mind Like Your Body?

You may call us a little eager, but now is the perfect time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolution. Think back to the last three years and what you promised yourself you would do more of. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred we focus on improving our physical health. But what if this year you focus on your mental wellbeing? What if your new resolution is to find ways to improve your mind and thoughts, or find a way to better manage stress and your mental health.

Emotional wellbeing is a priority everyone shares or at least one we should share. Just look at the stats. 25% of people will suffer from some sort of mental health issue at some point in their life. Twenty-five percent. One in four. The odds are too high to ignore this part of our happiness and wellbeing.

Making your mind the priority next year isn’t just reserved for those that are battling depression, bipolar, cyclothymia, anxiety and everything else that falls within this bell curve. That’s because emotional wellbeing also affects day to day life such as stress, decisions, social events, how we connect with others, the kind of confidence we uphold.

So, if you find your head is subtly nodding as you read this, then here are our top tips on how to make your mental health the absolute priority going into 2018:

Adulting can be rough

I am writing this while laying on my hardwood floors drinking my second cup of coffee after spending two hours doing accounting and the morning deep cleaning the apartment. Looking through other drafted articles I had ready to go for this Friday, I realized let’s just begin with where I am today… Adulting is tough, man, but I rather learn that now.
