Hey! I’m TK, the creator of This Is Me Thriving. Before we get into our regularly scheduled programming, I wanted to introduce myself so we could get to know each other a little bit better.
I’m an enneagram 1 (seriously, I resonate with this so much), tea lover, avid reader, young professional, trying to figure out this whole life thing and live each day intentionally.
I absolutely love planning and getting organized. While I know it may take a little longer to get my thoughts together instead of jumping right on in, if I’m organized with a plan and my planner, I really do feel like I can take on anything and am prepared to face the world!
I’m also all about that self care life. Especially with the world we now live in, it’s so important to treat yo’ self and find some balance. So, whether it’s setting healthy boundaries, having a glass (or heck, a bottle, because life is hard and you do you, boo) of wine, or doing a sheet mask (and seriously anything in between)— I am here for it!
I love to travel, both domestically and internationally! Whether its a two week long jet setting trip across the world, or a quick weekend getaway, I am such a fan. I’m a big believer that you can’t pour from an empty vessel and travel is one of the ways that I recharge and get to thriving.
Why the focus on thriving? This blog was actually inspired by the pandemic—weird, I know. It felt like I was minding my own business, hanging out with friends, climbing the corporate ladder, and making plans for the future, when all of the sudden BAM! COVID-19 hit and everyone went home and stayed there (now I know that it was a lot more serious and complicated than that, but let’s stay lighthearted for now). At first, I really enjoyed quarantine — being an introvert meant that I now had a good excuse not to see people, my commute was cut down dramatically, and I could now wear my lululemons to work instead of a suit. But one month turned into two, which turned into ten, etc. and day after day working from home without any big events to look back on or look forward to resulted in me feeling blah. It’s like my life was a flat line that wasn’t really going anywhere. And one day, I had enough of that.
I didn’t want to just live, I wanted to thrive.
Even if we couldn’t go back to “normal life” or “precedented times,” I didn’t have to let my life pass me by. So I worked on changing my mindset, setting healthy boundaries, and living with intention. It’s a work in progress, but it’s so much better. I’m getting to thriving.
That’s what I want for you, too.
So, welcome to my corner of the internet. Let’s get to thriving!
