Feel your feelings. All of them.

Hello, my lovelies!

On Living Purposefully

Everyone can find a way to make time to engage in activities that make them come alive.

/ˈpərpəsfəl/
adjective
Having or showing determination or resolve; having a useful purpose; intentional.

 

One morning about a month and a half ago, I was taking a shower, getting ready for work. It had been a long and exhausting summer at work, and although I certainly enjoyed aspects of it, I felt that every moment of free time was consumed by my exhaustion. I was burnt out, and it was difficult for me to put time and energy toward the things that brought me alive. Some of my creative endeavors—one of them, writing—were falling to the wayside, and I began to feel like a robot whose sole task was to go to work every morning and come home, exhausted, every evening. It was a hopeless, numbing feeling, and I did not feel like I was living intentionally, wholeheartedly, or purposefully. This is one of the reasons that, in the shower that morning, I simply decided that I needed to quit my job. At least for a while. Continue reading “On Living Purposefully”

Why You Need to Start a Gratitude Journal Right Now

It will change your life.

Hello, Sunshine!

When I was first brainstorming ideas for this little blog of mine, I came up with the idea to talk about gratitude journals. But as I was getting ready to start writing about it, I realized something: I haven’t been keeping a gratitude journal! You might be thinking, “What?! Sonia doesn’t follow her own advice?!” And the answer to that is sometimes I don’t (although I know I would attract an abundance of joy into my life if I did!). Anyway, I definitely was not about to be hypocritical, so instead of writing my post, I got out a cute little notebook, and I started listing the things I was thankful for. I’ve been doing it for about a week now, and I already feel like I have grown so much. So, without further ado, I am so excited to share one of my FAVORITE happiness-inducing techniques with you!
