The Truth About Finding Purpose And Why It’s Not About What You Do

The Truth about Finding Your Purpose | Why the idea that your purpose is all about what you do is a myth. And how to instead turn finding your purpose into an opportunity to develop tons of self acceptance and self love.

Hello Lovelies:

What’s your purpose? Does that question make you cringe? Honestly, I think that when the idea of finding purpose comes up many of us start to sweat and wonder if we measure up. Our minds wander to our jobs, our education, our hobbies… and all of the things we do. And for many of us, we may find ourselves wanting (or completely lost)

But what if things could be different? What if our purpose isn’t really what we’ve been led to believe? What if it comes from a completely different place?

If the idea of finding your purpose makes you cringe… if you’re feeling like you’ll never find it, or if you’ve recently lost your way, this post is for you <3.

Celebrating 5 Years with Graves Disease and Tips to Build Your Best Life

Hello Lovelies:

This time five years ago I was trying to absorb the fact that I have Graves Disease, an incurable, but thankfully treatable, autoimmune disease.

Like many diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, my life drastically changed after my diagnosis. Initially I was devastated and angry. But five years later I can honestly say that Graves Disease has changed my life for the better. 

Really, I changed myself for the better. But knowing I would be spending a lifetime with Graves Disease truly motivated me to examine my life and foster changes that would allow me to thrive in my circumstances. And there are so many ways that you can too! Even if you don’t have a chronic illness.

Don’t wait for a disease to make yourself a priority. Let’s talk about how to truly make yourself feel fantastic, inside and out.
