My path to self-improvement started slowly. I’ve always had a desire to be a “better” person, but what does that really look like? And it’s not like I thought I was bad, but I’ve always believed I should aspire to do more, learn more, be more.
I’ve been to counseling and therapy for most of my adult life (more on that later). Over the past few years, my therapy sessions have evolved into how I could work on being a better partner in my relationship. As time went by, I realized I couldn’t be a better partner, friend, family member, etc. unless I was truly being the best version of myself.
This is how I started my quest for self-improvement.
The purpose of this blog is to share what I’ve learned and how I’m working on being the best version of myself. Everyone’s journey is different, but maybe you’ll find some inspiration here, just as I found in many of the resources I utilized to get to where I am.
I am so excited about the journey I’m on and I hope you’ll come along with me!

Welcome to the newest series within the You First blog: Expectation vs. Reality! In this series of posts, I’ll break down the expectations we set for ourselves with various areas of our life (self-care, fitness, happiness, etc.), the reality that actually occurs, and how to accept that reality.
As the warm weather settles in, most of us go on a Spring Cleaning spree. We do things we don’t normally do like clean the insides of windows, wash pillows (which by the way you should be doing every month), and dust places we don’t normally see all the time (like the top of the fridge). We clean out our closets and get rid of items that are too big, too small, not worn, and shouldn’t be worn.
