Hi, my name is Elsie. I am...A small-town-turned-city girl. A dreamer. A planner. A runner (sometimes). An aspiring writer. A blogger. A fan of life, love, happiness, art, and smiling. This blog is a collection of things that grab hold of my soul and make me feel. Welcome to the inner workings of a life in flux. Enjoy!
I believe in creativity and innovation. I believe in challenging myself, in risking failure and uncertainty, to have an adventure and try something new. I believe in constant personal, professional, and social evolution. I believe that when the dust settles, everything will be OK. I believe in fresh air and sunshine. I believe in having goals and plans, but valuing spontaneity. I believe in self-reliance and collaboration. I believe in empathy. I believe in (pro)activity, not passivity. I believe in tears and I believe in laughter. I believe in standing up for myself. I believe that the cure for the blues is the perfect song, a cozy bed, and someone who will listen without judgment. I believe that there is a fine line between comfort and complacency. I hate complacency. I believe in learning and growing from your past mistakes. I believe in dreams, in freedom, in love.
I believe in believing: that I am beautiful, capable, strong, honest, genuine, kind, weird, loved, courageous, optimistic, and resilient.
MANTRA: Do what I love, love what I do, and change the world while doing it.
