28 Life Lessons In 28 Years

I celebrated my 28th birthday over the weekend and like with most birthdays it brought up a lot of feelings and led to some reflection. I always thought I would be the type to not be bothered by turning 30 but here I am at 28 years old having a minor meltdown over it. I […]

A Lack of Creativity

I’ve been a bit quiet around these parts for the past few months and that wasn’t exactly intentional. If you’re a creative person you’ll know that unfortunately it comes and goes in waves. You have weeks or months where everything is flowing, everything you want to create just comes to you and you don’t have […]

This Is What Anxiety Looks Like

I think of this photo often when I think of my anxiety and how other people perceive me. If you looked at that photo you would probably see a happy go lucky girl who looks healthy and is just doing really great. In reality though that photo was taken on a day where my anxiety […]

Just My Confidence & Me

I never really explained anywhere why I gave this site the name that I did. Little Victories comes from a song of the same name by Matt Nathanson. It is one of my favorite songs musically but especially lyrically. If you’re like me and have dealt with any form of anxiety you know how it […]

Let’s Get Real On the Internet
