Choosing Clarity

As a young girl, I always looked forward to reading. Yes, I read my fair share of Us Weekly and People Magazine, .. but diving into actual books remained a huge part of my personality.

I was that type of girl who would read the whole book on the way home from purchasing it.

I remember as a teenager, I would buy Bright Eyes albums and spend hours online reading the lyrics, trying to understand what was being said.

Even now, I think what helped accelerate my maturity and what helps me maintain my success, is my obsession with research.

When you grow up achingly co-dependent and reliant on your person(s) for all the answers, you lose your identity and suffocate your power. I have found that it is in the knowledge you acquire that you can develop the strength to confidently live the life you actually want.

With that, I want to encourage you to get educated. Sometimes it will be really easy and fun to understand and sometimes it will feel so mind-blowing . .that your mind will want to work it’s ass off to convince you to step out of your truth. Don’t. Keep going.

Also, please feel free to do more research and find authors that resonate with you (and let me know if they’re good so I can expand!) but below I listed all of the books I’ve read the past 5 years, in the order that I read them. Links attached, enjoy xo
