They say a dream is a wish your heart makes. I say that a wish is a prayer that you make when you don’t want to talk to God about it. We all have things that we want, but when it feels too selfish or lofty or impossible, we just hope and yearn and wish [...]
A few weeks ago, I was talking about happiness and how it can be cheapened by our busy lifestyles. The mindset has become all about sucking as much fun out of life as possible, but the problem is that no one can really enjoy the great moments of life unless they slow down and let [...]
I have been reluctant to write this post for a while. Like the title states, I failed the happiness challenge. Of course, I had every intention of keeping up with it, but it got to the point where it was adding more tension than happiness. I should emphasize at this point that it wasn’t stressful [...]
As I continue on my #100happydays challenge, I find myself in a sort of predicament. Since I don’t have a phone, I am not used to carrying a camera around with me. I will try to do better this coming week, but for this week I will end up describing happy moments a lot more.
I just completed the greatest adventure of my life. After finishing a semester that earned me more credits than any previous semesters (which was quite the accomplishment in itself), my family packed up and headed down to Kentucky for a week-long vacation (Fun Fact: I’ve never been on vacation this long in my life!).

It’s been over a week since spring officially started, which means we are supposed to have tulips and rainbows and mud puddles, right? Unfortunately, no. When I think of spring, I imagine crocuses peeking out of the soft, sun-warmed earth after a long winter hibernation. I can picture daddy robins preparing nests while mother robins [...]
6 months. Six whole long stinking months. Half a whopping year. It’s taken me this long to publish something again. After much personal journal ranting and several unfinished drafts, I am finally doing it again. I recently discovered a word that describes my condition perfectly: I am atychiphobic. Basically, this just means I am afraid [...]
I have to be honest with you. I’m scared. In fact, we’re all scared. If we are truly honest with ourselves, we have to admit this. It’s something that’s instilled in us as we grow older. We all develop fears, but I know for a fact that we all share a common one. Are you [...]
“Wow, summer is halfway over! I can’t believe it.” These are the unfortunate words I recently heard from my co-worker this week. I thought about it later that night and mused, where did the time go? Of course, we all know where the time went. It ran off like my sneaky little nephew when we [...]
Hello! I’m Breanna. Thanks for visiting my blog.
I love writing, reading and learning. I may be classified as a nerd, since I love Lord of the Rings and enjoy reading encyclopedias. Or a hipster, since I don’t dress mainstream, but if that’s the case, I was a hipster before it was cool. I graduated [...]
