Living A Bold Life

Hands down, this has been the boldest year of my life. I got married, moved into a new house, and in June, my first book will be available!

That’s right! This little millennial blogger over here was bold enough to go after her dream of writing a book, and in a couple months, I get to see it come to life.

I couldn’t be happier about it.

So today, I’m giving you a behind the scenes look into my bold life as a blogger (and now author).

Overcoming Stress and Anxiety In Your Twenties

Overcoming Stress and Anxiety

Hey guys! Enjoy today’s guest post from Mila! xoxox, Kayla

 I think often we let life get in the way of taking care of ourselves. With school, school debt, work, or lack of work, we have so many stressors in our lives. You can read just about anywhere that our generation might be the most and anxious and stressed out generation yet, and if I look at just my own experience, I would say that’s pretty accurate.

I’ve always struggled with anxiety and depression, and as an “adult,” I have been in a pretty constant state of stress. When I was in college, I regularly stressed myself out to the point of illness; one year in particular, I managed to get 10 long lasting colds in a single year. When I worked abroad in Japan in 2015, I managed to stress myself to the point that I was losing hair. That was not cool, and was extremely scary (which, needless to say, didn’t help my stress at all).

I wish I could say that this is just me and that I’m just a crazy person, but looking at others in this generation that is not the case. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t read someone’s status update as something along the lines of “sick again, gonna go die in bed now,” or “just having a mental breakdown, don’t mind me.”

10 Adulting Moments Most Of Us Will Experience In Our Twenties

Adulting Moments

My girlfriends and I have been talking a lot lately and we’ve come to the conclusion that being an adult is NOT fun.

Okay, fine, SOMETIMES it’s fun. But most of the time, our lives are full of all this adult stuff that no one told us we were going to have to do!

I grew up DYING to be an adult. All I wanted to do was grow up, get a job, and make money. Now all I want to do is curl up under the covers in my bed and hide from all my adult responsibilities.

Go away, adult stuff! Not today!!

But eventually, we do have to do grown-up things, so here are 10 adulting moments most of us will experience in our twenties.

Good luck!

How Fundraising and Volunteering Boost Your Resume and Mental Health

Fundraising and Volunteering

Hi guys! Enjoy this guest post from Holly! xoxoxox, Kayla

Can’t decide whether you should volunteer? When you offer to work for free — even for a charitable cause — it’s natural to have reservations. Aside from the lack of immediate monetary benefit, volunteering also requires you to donate time, energy and resources you may not have. Still, it’s worth considering.

Whether you’re still in college, or fresh out of it, being a volunteer can be rewarding. As you will see, the benefits of volunteering often more than make up for the “unpaid” aspect.
