Hi, beauty! So thankful you're stopping by. My name is Megan, and I am one passionate girl. I have a burning desire to spread love and confidence, and this space is designed just for that! I believe that no matter who you are, we're all worth it - it's just a matter of recognizing that worth. I've always been a talker, and now I'm a typer; I'm a writer and author, and I strive to produce work that inspires. Constantly flooded with ideas and compelled by the world around me, I created [insert title here] as a fun, expressive space for me to share my thoughts on life, love and this little (yet mighty) thing called happiness. Since it's initial publishing, [insert title here] has expanded into a space that represents not only positivity and creativity, but confidence and self-love. [insert title here] was started in the Fall of 2014 and has birthed my passion for writing. So, I'm taking my own advice and pursing my passions by cultivating my creativity and writing about how I - on a day-to-day basis - am embracing my imperfections. That's something that I (and this blog) have come to live by, and I'm here to encourage and support you to do the same. I'm called to help evoke confidence in others and to help others to recognize the love that they deserve - the self-love that they forget to give. So hop on the train and join the ride as I venture through life and do my best to reveal to others the beauty we hold and the love we deserve!

Why blog? I've had compelling ideas for years, but no way to spread them. Instagram gave me a photo, Twitter gave me 140 characters, Snapchat gave me 10 seconds, and opinionated Facebook posts are actually the worst of all time. So why not blog?
What's your purpose? To spread love and to create a community of individuals who are just that: individuals. People who feel free to be and express themselves, and who have a safe space to do so. I want this to be a place of honest and open conversation. I am in love with writing and have a deeply routed passion for empowerment and for inspiring confidence and self-love. I'm dedicated to helping others to realizing their beauty while honoring themselves, their needs and their incredible roles in this world.
You give a lot of messages, which is the most important? Be kind to yourself. It'll allow you to love yourself more fully and to better love those around you. This self-directed kindness and love will set a precedent for how others value you, too.
Are you actually happy all the time? Hell no - no one is. I try my best to celebrate my struggles in this space alongside my smiles. No one's happy all the time, no matter how beaming their social media might be. And while we're on the honesty element: #nofilter isn't actually a thing. So no, I'm not happy all the time, but I do my best to make my happiness a conscious choice, not a game of emotional Roulette. And yes, I use filters - just like you.
What's in it for me? As I grow, you'll grow with me. I'm very invested in interpersonal relationships, and I want to make this an experience, not a one-sided monologue (I do that enough). Hopefully you get smiles, laughs and involved. The more people we have, the stronger we are. So let's get this tribe growing!
