The Time is Now

Jana Myers1 Comment
You don’t have to be great to start. But you have to start to be great.

Happy Monday!

I have been thinking for awhile now about going back to school for something besides design. Many people have told me "the time is now" and it's true - I am young, I do not have a huge amount of commitment and, why not? This blog is all about the beginning of something and I can feel that sense of a beginning creeping up on me. I'm not sure exactly what that entails right now; I'm still trying to iron that out.

It would not not an easy decision. In many ways, it will change my life.  But, if I don't try, I will always wonder. So, I'm hoping with the certainty of support from my family and friends that this new adventure will be a great one...stay tuned! <3

Happy Monday

Grat·i·tude

Jana Myers2 Comments

grat•i•tude noun
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

It is often too easy to fall into a pattern of not practicing gratitude. I myself have fallen victim to this in my life and know it is time to take a step back and remind myself to be thankful. There is so much I have positive in my life but regardless of what those positives are, I tend to focus on the negative. I am going to try my best moving forward to be grateful for what I do have versus what I don't.  To start off fresh, I have created a list of what I am thankful for right now in my life. 

• My family + their constant support
• My job + having a passion for design
• My friends + the positive influence they constantly have on me
• The ability to see, hear, speak, write. Something I think we all take for granted on a daily basis
• My dog Abby
• My health

Monday Tunes

  • Bright - Gardiner Sisters
  • Hasta la Piel - Carla Morrison
  • Steady - The Staves
  • Frail Love - Cloves

Monday Mornings

Happy Monday! Hope everybody had a great weekend.

I went to a farmers market over the weekend called Singh Farms.  If you haven't been you should definitely check it out!  They have fresh produce, flowers, jars of honey and jam, juices and coffee, horses, peacocks and chickens.  It's definitely worth going to check out and just walk around.

I love the fresh start to a week. Here are three things I am thankful for:

  1. My new job!
  2. Family
  3. A new day

Also, here are 21 ideas for energy-boosting breakfast toasts to try out one morning this week! 



The Good Lie

Jana MyersComment

To start the week off right, I want to share a movie quote from The Good Lie.  

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

The movie is a beautiful true story of three brothers from a Sudan refugee camp who receive the opportunity to work in America.  Not only is it a beautiful story, but it really helped me to open my eyes and be thankful and blessed for my life.  This has inspired me to start sharing three things I am thankful for every Monday...I encourage you to try it as well! So, to start, here are the three things I am thankful for today:

1. My family 

2. My health

3. My boyfriend, who is always there for me
