How to Keep Your Resolutions with FW Magazine.

You guys might not know it, but I've been super motivated since Intentional October to grow my writing. Sometimes I feel like I've had nine lives of trying different things - working in different industries, from public relations and Chick-fil-A, Inc. to acting and voiceover and now writing - I have been all over the map! But I feel proud that I've tried all the things in my heart - it's forced me to be vulnerable and ask people for help and receive critiques and experience rejection. It's not an easy feeling. It's not comfortable. But I am certain that this spark in me for more must be investigated until that little spark is fully lit.

I have a feeling I'm not alone in my pursuits. So many of you have reached out and shared that your heart is to try something different, pursue your passion, and see dreams come into fruition. I am honored to be right alongside you in that journey. May we all continue to explore this wonderful life and find passion and fulfillment in all the different, winding paths of our life's journey.

Which is why I want to share this small bit of progress in my own personal life. It always encourages me when I see people pursuing dreams and actually getting some traction with their efforts, so I want to be able to do the same. It might not sound like a big deal, but for the past few months I've been contributing lifestyle articles to my county's Women's Magazine, Fayette Woman. I've had the opportunity to write a handful of articles - from parenting to wellness to home decor. I've developed, researched and contributed my own content, along with conducting interviews and doing profiles on other companies and people of interest. It has been so much fun! I've been published before, but this is a new and NOW feeling, and I feel like I am starting over again and it's so good. It's exciting (and slightly terrifying) to see your words in print - it's a little bit like feeling naked on a stage, but also super freeing, like I'm pursuing my dreams and garnering opportunities that I only could have hoped for a few months ago, because SOMEONE is publishing me! Woohoo.

Just wanted to take this quick moment to share my latest article about How to Keep Your Resolutions, which is both in print and online this month. I would love it if you checked it out! Thanks for all the support, friends. And happiest of Fridays to you! XOX
