What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Walk barefoot at least once in every new place you go.
At least once a week, do something that scares you.
Find a lipstick that you love, and wear it whenever you’re having a bad day.
Always be reading a book. Even if it’s just a page a day, always be reading.
Every now and then, put your iphone down and just live in a moment instead of taking a picture of the moment. Make a memory just for yourself, not for your instagram friends.
Make to-do lists, but don’t be afraid to ignore them. Sometimes real life can’t fit on a to-do list, and that’s okay.
Start fresh every morning. Have a cup of coffee and treat the day like the blank slate that it is.
If you’re passionate about something, work it into your life. It doesn’t matter if it’s impractical. Life is too short to ignore the things you’re passionate about.
Work hard at everything you do. If you’re not going to work hard at it, get rid of it and work hard at something else. If it’s something that has to be in your life, like a job you don’t love, suck it up and work hard at it anyway. You’re never going to be happy with something that you’re lazy with.
But be lazy sometimes. Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
Recognize moments of pure happiness and hold on tight to whatever causes them.
Always be dreaming. Big dreams, small dreams, doesn’t matter.
Remind yourself, often, of how fantastic you are. Whether it’s the fact that you have awesome handwriting, that you’re amazing at your job, or that you cook really great breakfast, remind yourself that you are wonderful.
If you love the people in your life, tell them. In as many ways and as often as you can.
Get yourself a puppy. Because, duh.
