Surviving Twenty Something

 

Hey, I'm so glad you're here!

This blog is for the big-dreamers, the status-quo busters, and the think-outside-the-boxers— the millennials who want to live a meaningful and mindful life, packed with outrageous joy and fulfilment.

Are you wanting to learn more about money and finances

Finding daily happiness?

Or maybe you want to get productive and make your dreams happen now.

 
 

Here are some of the most popular posts (and my personal favourites)

 
 

There's a path that's laid out before us.
It looks something like this:

You do a lot thinking about your career destiny. You get into a good college, party often, and meet friends you will have for the rest of your life. Your grades are alright, and you graduate. Maybe you buy a car with your savings.

You spend more years than you'd like working a minimum wage job, get an apartment, get a dog, and struggle to pay off $70,000 in student loans.You have a big wedding— all those college friends come.

You get a job in your field (finally!) and immediately buy a house. And a better car. You head to the office, put in your 9-5, order take out, and fall asleep watching OITNB reruns. Somehow, the pile of debt is growing. You buy the things that are supposed to make you happy, work more to afford those things, and seem to spend all of your time catching up on cleaning.

You rinse and repeat an unfulfilling daily routine, wondering what went wrong, reminiscing about high school or college— the best days of your life.

If you're anything like me, reading that would have had a slow-burning panic rising in your throat.

If you're anything like me, you know there is a better way— another path.

In fact, when you remove the sign posts, there are uncountable millions of paths— more than the stars in the sky.

I want to show you not the right way to live, but how to find the right way for you— the life you can't wait to wake up to everyday, that's mindful, purposeful, and bursting with unexpected joy and appreciation for simple wonders.

Mindful living doesn't have to be black and white. It doesn't have to be empty shelves, a set of grey v-necks, and streamlined Scandinavian furniture. It doesn't have to be a contest to see who can own the fewest possessions.

A mindful live isn't about deprivation. It's about recognizing abundance when it's right before you.
