Photo Credit: http://www.telegraph.co.uk I’ve mentioned before that I’m not big on making new year’s resolutions. That being said, I do like to set up a goal or two…something to focus on…when a new year rolls around. For 2015 I put my focus on acceptance. Accepting the various challenges in my life. Accepting who I was. … More Parlez-vous francais?
1) I’ll stop using my being nice as a barometer with which to measure other people (aka just being nice because its who I am, not because I expect to get it back in return). 2) I won’t edit myself on social media. I’m keeping all ranting or angry statuses up no matter what anyone … More Today, I Promise Myself

After a lot of obstacles and what seemed like a dream that was becoming an impossible one…I finally got the … More “Why Ireland” Comes True
Oh yes, I’m going to do one of these blogs. I’ve never been a huge fan of all the hoopla involved with New Year’s Eve. There’s always so much pressure to have plans and go out and you feel like you’re missing out or aren’t normal if you don’t. It does so happen that I … More So Long 2012!
Do you find yourself checking your Facebook page more than several times a day? When you have a free minute, do you find yourself opening the app on your phone and just mindlessly scrolling through it? Well, I do. I had a good run there recently of staying off of it but lately my Facebookaholicism … More The Facebook Challenge
My dad was having a discussion with the owner of the company he works for last week…a man who is practically like family (as is his own family to us) since my dad has been with the company for a very long time. They got on the topic of relationships and how they can sometimes … More The Sweetness
A coworker of mine said something to me the other day that caused me to start really looking at my life and my priorities. We were talking about trying to save money for travel and other “adult” things like a new car at the same time. He said, “That’s why I don’t have a lot … More Things vs Travel
