Something To Be Dealt With

When life speeds up, little things start to fall by the wayside. And slowly but surely, the smaller things being left behind turn into the bigger things being left behind. Like writing and exercise. Two things as essential to me as breathing, if I am paying any mind to my well-being, yet my focus on […]

Good Enough

I made it one of my goals this year to focus on embracing grace. What does this mean exactly? Well, it means that I am trying to be better at the things that don’t come very naturally to me. Patience, for instance, is a huge one. I want things to happen in my time and […]

adulthood

I try to start every day with a to-do list. Some days I get it all done. Some days I completely forget to even make a list. Most days I am somewhere in-between, crossing out the easier items with satisfaction and rolling over the rest to the next day’s list. Order business cards. Work on […]

Ambition, Hustling, and Finding Purpose

One of the most powerful things we can do is to decide what we want. To do this, we must get to know ourselves. What makes us tick? What fulfills us? What do we want our lives to look like in five, ten, or twenty years? We must take a stand in our beliefs, choose […]

Scratch That

When deciding on the content I share within this blog, sometimes it is difficult for me to make the judgment call as to what I disclose regarding my relationships. It’s a double-edged sword. On the one hand I created Twenty-Everything as a platform to share my journey and experiences as twenty-something figuring it all out, […]

One Year Later

It’s a pretty well known fact that I love to get inspired. The mug on my desk at work reads cherish the journey, the wallpaper on my phone says believe you can, and you will, and I try my best to spread positivity like confetti. I’m a glass-half-full kind of girl. There’s enough ugliness in […]
