The 2022 Reading Plans of a Girl Boss

"I may have girl bossed a little to close to the sun..." At the beginning of 2021, I received my new kindle. I hadn't really read for fun in quite a while and wasn't even sure what I liked to read anymore. I decided to get a Kindle Unlimited account and set my reading goal to 100 books for the year. I honestly didn't think I would even make it to that. But half way through the year we moved out-of-state and I found myself with a heck of a lot of time on my hands. I ended up surpassing my goal by 75% according to my Kindle Reading Insights. This did not include any printed books or other eBooks and stories I read by other means, e.g. Book Funnel and Wattpad.  Fast forward almost a year... During the last week of 2021, a few of my favorite authors were taking part in a giant book giveaway.  And when I say giant, I mean around 500 eBooks were free.

Welcome to the Mess!

Fact: Life is messy. Nothing about life is clean and smooth. No matter how neat and organized you are today, life has a way of completely and utterly changing in a split second. Fact: Life is beautiful, in spite of the mess and because of the mess. Some of the most awe-inspiring pictures of life are in the mess of life. A picture of a tornado ripping through the landscape, the explosion of a volcano, a solar flare, the chase of a lion after a gazelle, and the first picture of a new life. This blog is a journal of a messy life trying to find the beauty in it all. I am not perfect, in fact, I am no longer trying to be. I want wonder, sanity, and fun. I want to stress over the perfect tickles, not the perfect hospital corners. I want the beauty in the mess.
