We might have started the week like it was mid-August but we are ending it like it's finally mid-October! And as I prep for my pumpkin carving party tomorrow I couldn't be more excited about the crisp fall weather. I'm feeling super motivated as I head into my weekend after spending my morning at a young professionals summit hosted by Launch St. Louis. It was all about building a personal brand, volunteering with non-profits and pursuing a passion (that would be this here blog my friends!). I was so inspired and a little intimidated by some of the speakers. Many work full time jobs, have leadership roles on boards and find time channel their passion in a creative way. It reminds me of the quote that's always tossed around Instagram - "You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce." It's so true! Except I really doubt Beyonce has to waste an hour at the post office. But the point is, we all have a full day to work with and we can choose to spend those precious hours as we please. Sure, we've got to work and make a living but I can chose to sleep in a few extra hours or I can wake my butt up and spend those same hours working on something that's just for me. So here's to putting that thought process into action, but this weekend I'm excited to spend some time outside and carve some pumpkins! Here's a peak at some of things that made me smile this week.
P.S Also I was on a podcast this week! Did you guys catch it? I talked all about my love of TV news, social media and St. Louis! If you missed it, take a listen here!
Welcome to my blog! Here you'll find a behind the scenes look at the day-to-day life of a TV news reporter. I have a love for food, traveling and all things St. Louis. This is a place for me to write a bit more about my passions.
