There's really no reminder like death when you need a wake up call to sit and evaluate your life and the trajectory it is in currently.
Every time I open my Facebook page, I run into articles telling me that as a millennial, I can have it all. I can quit my job, start living all the dreams I cast aside because I couldn't afford and lay the groundwork to "completing myself". Of course, I don't believe every ThoughtCatalog article I… Continue reading How do you know what your heart wants?
I had the strangest day this Thursday while at work. A friend of mine had shared an upsetting story of a friend of hers whom had tragically passed away because of working too hard on a project.
