My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine

Just a few weeks ago, I started my last semester of college (ahhh) and since then, my schedule has changed a bit in comparison to my Fall semester. I try to keep my mornings as consistent as possible, despite what my schedule is for the day or what time I am “starting my day”. And after reflecting, this is what I found to be my typical morning routine. Continue reading “My Morning Routine”

My Current Reading List + Favorites

My Current Reading List + Favorites

I’ve always been a bookworm since I was young, especially when I went through a phase of being obsessed with the Pretty Little Liars series (way before the show) and would legitimately read a whole book in one day. As a young adult now, I still love reading whenever I can and I incorporated a habit of reading about 30-45 minutes a day this past year in 2018. After my recent Portland solo trip, I took home a few more books with me after my long stop at the infamous Powell’s Bookstore and have been reading so many new titles since. Here’s a list of what I’m currently reading and my favorites from the past as well. Continue reading “My Current Reading List + Favorites”

A Reflection on 2018, Envisioning 2019

A Reflection on 2018, Envisioning 2019

With 2018 coming to an end, I want to write this post to reflect on how this year went for me. As some may know from my past posts, the previous year (2017) was a year full of adversity for me, from transferring universities, feeling friendless, and not thriving in any parts of my career and business. Because of this low point, I made the decision last December that 2018 was going to be a brand new experience for me, in that it was ultimately going to be my year. And indeed it has…but now, 2019 is here and it’s another cycle of planning out my life as I approach graduation (honestly I’m screaming in my head as I type this).

My First Solo Experience in Portland, OR

My First Solo Experience in Portland, OR

A little less than two weeks ago, I finally decided I was going to commit to going on my first solo trip ever to the city I’ve been dying to visit–Portland, Oregon. The truth about why I booked my plans so late in the game is because I simply kept waiting to feel “ready” to book, while I would talk for months how I was going to do it. And I’ll be honest, I am NOT the type of person that says one thing and does another. I like to stay true to my word or better yet, walk the talk. So truthfully, I felt like a fraud for saying I was going to travel to xyz in the Fall but never committed to it. Until two weeks before my trip.

My Consistent Everyday Habits

My Consistent Everyday Habits

I am a firm believer that our success is a reflection of our consistent everyday habits. Some of these habits are as simple as having the discipline to make our bed every morning, exercising once a day, or maybe even meditating. Regardless, I believe the foundation of success stems from our discipline and how well we push ourselves to do so consistently. Often times, I am asked how I manage to maintain such an active healthy lifestyle and I always bring it back to the habits I incorporate each day. With that, I’ve decided to share five of my consistent everyday habits.  Continue reading “My Consistent Everyday Habits”
