This is my third week at my new job and I’ve never had so many people tell me how perfect I fit in. In fact, I have denied it every time someone has suggested that I might have found my calling. From my friends, to my co-workers, and even my own parents- everyone seems to feel that I am meant to be a elementary school teacher. I truly didn’t want to believe it. I just didn’t. Honestly, I think it’s because I viewed teaching as one of those “last resort”, dead-end occupations. Continue reading →
For my last post in this series, I’m going to examine my 3rd post on this lovely blog of mine. The topic is one that is really crazy to me because, 2 years later, I’m actually about to have to act on the things that I wrote about. Continue reading →
I’m officially 7 months out from “the big day” and I’m in need of a serious attitude adjustment. Life has been fairly good to me, so it makes no sense for me to be unhappy about anything.

Today is Resurrection Day and I am so blessed to be feeling well. A few weeks ago, I was in a Tiny Buddha forum and someone mentioned the INFJ personality. I have heard of people using personality acronyms, especially in the online dating community, but I never felt the need to look into it. Similarly to astrology and horoscopes, I just don’t like to rely on these kinds of things to tell me who I am. However, when Continue reading →
The final question that this article asks was my second favorite question because it forced me to really dig deep into my feelings.
5. If money were no object, how would you live your life differently?

4. What makes you genuinely happy?
Gonna be honest here and say that this question was my favorite. Thinking about the things that make me happy has made me so happy. I mean, who doesn’t love to think about their favorite things in life? The author suggests considering childhood dreams and funny enough, I was just chatting with some girlfriends about my childhood passions. The things that have always made me happiest were handmade crafts, studying Japan and Japanese, and close relationships. Of course, as an adult and now a Christ-follower, God and my relationship with Him definitely make this list! Continue reading →
