Valentine’s day is already upon us, which brings up a common New Year’s resolution that many people (myself included, to an extent) embark on: finding their soulmate. But romance can be a tricky subject for many, with some wistfully dreaming about their Prince(ss) Charming and others bitterly avoiding the idea altogether, believing they’re just not cut out for love.

Today is my 23rd birthday. I’m extremely blessed and thankful to have made it another crazy year, and can’t help but reflect on my life so far and what I’ve learned.

Boldness This one is, in my opinion, the most important. Successful people are never meek and know that victory often means breaking away from expectations – even if that means ridicule, difficulty, or just generally being seen as the “weirdo”. As […]

The 4-Step Plan to Stop Feeling Depressed, Anxious, Or Scared
