January Reading List

January 29, 2019 cassie 5 min read

January Books – Read This month I had a huge, detailed TO BE READ pile that I had intended to read. See the word “intended?”  I wrote out this huge list of things I wanted to read and then I went off script. Honestly, it’s very on brand of me to do something like this. I plan and plan and buy planners and office supplies and it mostly works. But other times it’s an illusion for me to do my own thing….

Goals for 2019!

January 2, 2019 cassie 4 min read

Goals for 2019 Here I am coming attcha on a WEDNESDAY! I know, I know, I’m breaking my routine a little bit. I think that if I want consistency in actually posting a post, I have to be a little more flexible with the timing. So it’s the SECOND DAY in J A N U A R Y! I can’t believe that 2019 is upon us already. I’m probably a little late with letting you know the goals I want to hit…

The One Resolution Year

December 11, 2018 cassie 4 min read

The One Resolution Year Resolutions, more specifically New Year’s resolutions are a traditional means of accomplishing one’s goals. Finishing your list can feel so rewarding, but it can also be a bit overwhelming at the same time. We already put a lot of pressure on ourselves, what with work, home, and personal life tasks. Adding an entire list of resolutions doesn’t seem like the most enjoyable or practical of experiences. How can you focus on so many goals in such a short…

30 Things Before Thirty – Stress Ruling Your Life

December 4, 2018 cassie 4 min read

Hey There! So I started this series thinking that I would be a little bit more on track with my blogging. I haven’t been as organized or planned out my posts as well as I probably should have. In all transparency, I thought that blogging would be easier than it has been. I thought that I would use this as a diary or spill out every topic that came into my mind. Then I picked a niche that I honestly wasn’t as…

Maine Trip 2018

November 30, 2018 cassie 6 min read

Would you believe me if I told you that before this year I hadn’t done much traveling outside of the American Midwest? That I’d only been to roughly 11 states in my entire 28 (now 29) years of living? What a waste! So let me tell you about our trip to Maine. With my resolution in January 2018 to travel more, and a seemingly destined meeting with my boyfriend, this year has certainly been the year I learn to travel. 16 additional…

Happy Thanksgiving

November 22, 2018 cassie 3 min read

Thanksgiving! I told myself I wasn’t going to be a kind of blogger that does cheesy holiday posts, but why not? I can get a little cheesy every once in awhile. So this is my Thanksgiving post of everything that I am grateful for this year, and thankfully there’s a whole lot. In relation to some of my other posts recently, I’ve been trying to keep things more light and positive. I struggle with positivity, but I think posts just like this…

30 Things Before Thirty – Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself

November 20, 2018 cassie 4 min read

I’m Back! Guess who’s back? Back again. Cassie’s back, tell a friend.  Yeah, yeah, yeah I’ve been preaching about consistency left and right but haven’t really been holding up to my half of the bargain. So in the next few weeks, the rest of 2018 to be exact, I will be posting two times a week and keep up with engagement on my social media sites. But it’s a perfect segway into one of my 30 things I’ve learned before thirty posts,…

30 Things Before Thirty – Me Time

October 11, 2018 cassie 5 min read

Making Time for Me Last 30before30 post that I did had to do with stubbornness and not letting yourself waste your own time. (I don’t know if that was grammatically correct but you know what I’m saying.) This one is another post about time, but instead of making sure you’re not wasting it, I’m advising that you set some aside for yourself. So something I learned, albeit a little more recently than I’d like to admit, is to make time for YOU,…

Empathetic Leadership

October 9, 2018 cassie 6 min read

Empathy Something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is empathy. What with our political environment and behaviors I’ve witnessed firsthand, I don’t see enough empathy in my personal life, government leadership or in others behaviors. But what do I mean by empathy? I think that Webster’s dictionary sums it up quite nicely: Source But what does this have to do with leadership style? And what does this have to do with me? Well I’ve been a manager for a few…
