☕️ Hi y'all!
I'm Jess Higgins! I live in Los Angeles (originally from Louisiana), and I just started this little blog because anyone who spends more than 5 minutes with me knows how much I love.....
I love a good limited series. A show that introduces and wraps up a show in just a few episodes and is, essentially, a very long movie.
I’ve recently watched a couple of extraordinary ones that were recently released and based on true events. Both are getting rave reviews (and rightfully so)! I’m sure you’ve heard of and maybe you’ve even seen both of these already. But just in case you haven’t, I wanted to shed some light on them, especially one in particular…
I saw the most epic moon the other night in Joshua Tree as it was rising up. I was driving and literally pulled over because I was in complete awe. Dan was there, as he always is, for my deep, life thoughts.
There I was realizing, once again, the magic in life. The magic that is life…
“Darling, you are a work of art…”
I get stuck in "ruts" as much as the next person. I go through ups and downs and can often wallow in my feelings…
With spring comes new beginnings -- including a whole new list of books (some are in stores now and a few others will drop later this season) to take with us to the park, the beach, on our weekend trips -- 'cause SPRING Y'ALL! :) It's packed with thrillers (my fave!), a YA fantasy novel (book one in a series), a short story collection, and a comedy! I also have some bonus reads if you're able to sneak them into your day. :)
So grab that (hopefully cold and iced) coffee or latte, and check out my recs and a few that will be on my reading list for this spring!! (There are too many good ones to list -- these are just a few that I think you should check out!)
Passion is a great thing to have, to an extent.
I read this interesting article yesterday by writer Brianna Wiest: 7 Things You're Relying On In Life That Are Holding You Back."
On passion, Wiest wrote:
"Passion is such a heavily used buzzword when it comes to defining what makes for meaningful and aspirational work. When people say "pursue your passion," what they really mean is to find something you care about enough to work on consistently.
Passion is emotion-based, and therefore, unpredictable if not fleeting. If you rely on passion to propel you through your life's work, you will be constantly at the whim of it. Cultivating principles means adopting behaviors that consistently work you toward your goals, whether or not you always "feel" like it."
