In September it will be a year since I’ve resigned from my full-time, salaried corporate job. While I’m freelancing and doing other things now and my pay fluctuates I don’t regret my decision. Why?

The crazy girl that has something to say about everything. Still, in the midst of it all, I’m still trying to find that drive. I’m like a candle that won’t stay burning.
May is Mental Health Awareness month so what better time than now than to share how I track my anxiety. There are many different ways that people do it. For me, I’ve begun tracking it on pen and paper in my planner. It’s been working thus far and I’ve been able to pinpoint when it happens and really monitor it as best I can.

Life has been absolutely amazing. I can’t complain. Everything finally seems to be falling into place. I’ve shared my journey to finding a career throughout various blog posts. It can be difficult.
