"The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings."
Thank you all for the positive responses on my post the other day about the struggle I've been feeling. I truly hold dear to the people and support in my life and I couldn't be more grateful for another day. I hope you feel uplifted and hopeful today. The best is yet to come.

It's days like today that make me so thankful for my friends. For the laughs, the inside jokes, the endless support.. Honestly, where would we be without friends!? 💃🏻💃🏻

I've felt stuck for awhile. Doubting myself, my work.. not really knowing what should come next or how to begin. I don't know about the rest of you 20-somethings, but these have been some of the roughest years for me. The future, overflowing with possibilities, is terrifying. Trying to find your place and purpose in the world seems too daunting to bear.
The only thing I am sure of is my future is bright. I'm not sure when I will finally feel the warmth of my own accomplishments but I know that day will come.
To you I say today: Let us strive together. Let us walk together. Put one foot in front of the other. Let us continue to reach out our arms towards greatness—regardless of the countless times we came up short.
Your great moment may not be today.. but it is someday. And that is worth waking up tomorrow for.
