    How Do You Choose A Word For The Year?

    A word of the year, a motto, a Bible verse, a thought, a feeling, an emotion, a resolution…

    These are all different things that people try to “nail down” for the new year, and stick to! If it’s a resolution it may be multiple things that you want to accomplish that year. A motto? Something you refer to throughout the year when you are having a bad day, or maybe a good day!

    For me? Resolutions never worked. I tried! I got out my journal (always new, because is there any better reason to buy a new notebook than to start the new year off right?), and started writing down what I wanted to accomplish that year. It always ended up looking something like… Read more

    Hello, November

    Autumn-fall mood board.


    Some interesting things that have happened since I last blogged here:

    • I now live in an RV. (yes, by choice. yes, to travel. yes, I’m 1/2 crazy.)
    • I had a job and I lost it, and it still bothers me even though it wasn’t my fault. One day I hope to write an amazing story about how because of that xyz happened.
    • Thrive is getting ready for its 4th annual conference, and it’s growing to be an online resource.
    • Since we’re traveling full time, I’m not sure where we are going to live after the trip. As in – which state.
    • Freelance graphic design and Thrive are still where it’s at for me right now.
    • I became the Creative Director my second cousin’s print publication – I still do this, but it’s freelance.
    • I got a business coach and it has been one of the best things for my business.

    Sometimes, you just need to write

    An update post of sorts. I have missed writing, a lot a lot. There has been so much going on though, and it makes it really hard to find the time.

    I keep a journal beside my bed, its a nice big one (shout out to Marshalls!) Big, faux leather, feels nice and soft in my hands, cobalt blue with gold foil and says “Big Dreams” on the front. perfecttt

    I am also a chronic notebookaholic. I have a problem, and I admit it. I want all of the notebooks. Other office supplies, not so much, I have a certain brand of pens that’s my favorite, and I stick with it. I have necessities that I use everyday for work like post-its, folders, and binder clips. But nothing shouts-out to me from the store shelves like notebooks. Anthropology, Target, Marshall’s, Paper-Source, honestly, I’m not picky. Read more
