Love & Lilacs

The other day at work, a coworker played a podcast about happiness. Happiness is something we all talk about, strive for, and something we seek. But what is it?

“Happiness is the joy we feel striving towards our potential.” Beautiful right?


My happiness? I am striving toward being vulnerable & continuing to be an advocate for being your best self.

I am going to be honest, this past week has been extremely stressful. However, there are always situations that will try to rob you of what you’re moving towards. Always remember, you are in charge of how those thoughts or situations effect you.

I stumbled across a fantastic quote that is the perfect analogy, “The lilac branches are bowed under the weight of the flowers: blooming is hard, and the most important thing is – to bloom.” -Yevgeny Zamyatin.
