Hey friends, it’s been a while! After a very long hiatus on the blog, I’m so excited to get back to it.

I’m going to start a new series called Hello Monday, to start our weeks off with some inspiration!

Words that are inspiring me this week:

For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.
— Michelle Obama, Becoming

Playlist of the week

On my shelf:

Currently Reading (or rather, listening to): * Becoming by Michelle Obama (currently loving listening to her audiobook, which is why it is the quote for this week!)

Just finished: * This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel

Articles to keep you thinking, inspired, & aware (or just for fun):

|| A linguist turned “Director of Naming” turned creative strategist talks about how brands get their names, and trends in business naming.

|| Why a psychology professor believes laziness does not actually exist.

|| How women (especially women of color and minority groups) hold the most of nation’s student debt. (I can definitely relate to this one)

|| Brittney Packnett’s TED Talk on confidence building.

What is inspiring you this week?
