Books I’m Dying to Read

Sometimes I feel like you’re either a reading person or you’re not. Of course, many of us grew up reading book after book, but as an adult, it’s often tough to find the time to sit down and read. Some people particularly enjoy reading during their daily commute while others can hardly get themselves to pick up a book a year. I’m odd in the sense that I’ve always been in between these two extremes. That’s why one of my 2018 goals is to read one book a month! It’s much more than I’d normally read, but it’s not so lofty of a goal that I’ll get overwhelmed.

Keep reading to see what’s on my list (or shelf, rather) to read next. Don’t forget to give me your recommendations too!

My Journey With Anxiety

While I’m an open person (and very much pride myself on that), my General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is something I typically keep to myself. If you’re in my life, you probably know how much it is a part of me and the ways in which it impacts my life. Sometimes I have a handle on it and other times, like the past few weeks, it completely and utterly debilitates both me and my everyday activities.

Nonetheless, this is something I’ve been wanting to write about for a while now, even if it makes me feel a little uncomfortable. I’d be lying if I said I’ve never felt hopeless, depressed, and alone due to my anxiety and I don’t want to put up a facade that it doesn’t affect me. I want to get honest and share my experience. Many of you have even reached out to me to request I finally write about it so whether you suffer from anxiety or another mental health issue or nothing at all, I hope this can help you.
