    Happiness isn't that plastic smile you paint on

    for your Instagram photos. It isn't being the loudest girl in the bar either. You can't find it under strangers' sheets and surely not on the label of your clothes. No. Happiness is those laughs that make your cheeks hurt and face flush. It is smiling all alone at 3am and...

    I did my first Spartan Race ever yesterday

    morning, and a ton of people from my gym were there. Before the race we all huddled up and the coach made a speech. He said we had been through so much pain, and had worked so hard for all this. In those few moments, I felt a beautiful sense of belonging that I haven't felt in...

    Sometimes you gotta realize

    that there's better days, you just have to have patience :) Happiness is always there. Sometimes you just have to move certain people or things out of the way for it to shine on through :)
