Self-Love Love Letter 2019

Happy Valentine’s Day Beautiful Readers,

Writing this love letter has proven to be harder than I anticipated. I have so much that I want to say to you, but often it comes out as nothing at all. I am confident that I will find something to say here. Like a good play in the fourth quarter, the topic for this letter came at the last minute. I decided that I  wanted to focus on self-love this year. I’m perpetually single, and I’m okay with that. I know that I’ve got to learn to love and respect myself before I expect anyone to do that for me. I don’t want to lose myself in anyone else’s dreams of who they want me to be.

Today, I wanted to share this same message with you all on this lovely Valentine’s Day. This message goes out to everyone! Self-love is critical whether you are single, in a relationship, or married. It’s so easy to lose sight of self-love in the process of living life.

Keep Reading, Darling

Leaving Academia For The Hustle: Finding My Version Of Financial Freedom Online

Thank you PayPal and Walmart for sponsoring this post. Introducing PayPal cash in and cash out money services, the financial services alternative which allows you to manage your cash flow on your own terms!

Freelancing has been one of the great joys of my 20s. When I first started this period of my life, though, I was enthralled with academia, grades, and higher education in general. I got so much out of my time as a student, but now that I am a freelancer, I couldn’t imagine any other career path. Today on The Happy Arkansan, I wanted to talk more about the transition from academia to freelancing and finding financial freedom online.
