Hi, I’m Emily. Welcome to Perfection Isn’t Happy!
I’m a 24-year-old newlywed, aspiring writer and FitFluential Ambassador, with a love for chocolate, oatmeal and exercise.
On July 14, 2012, I married my husband, Jordan. He is my best friend, and one of the most patient guys I know.
In 2011, I graduated with my B.A. in Communications from Indiana University, Indianapolis. I am still searching for a career that I love, but I have learned that the path to the right career is rarely straight and narrow.
I enjoy exercising and learning about nutrition and health, and I ran my first half marathon in November 2012. Don’t be fooled, though; I love to bake and cook, and I must eat something chocolate every single day (it may be an addiction…).
Through this blog, I share the adventures I have with my family and friends, my passion for fitness and health, my journey towards finding a career that fulfills me, and the ups and downs of newlywed life.
As far as “Perfection Isn’t Happy” goes, I have a type A personality, and I have always been a perfectionist. However, I have realized that being perfect is never possible. In order to be happy, you have to let go of perfectionism, and that is exactly what I am trying to do.
Thank you for reading, and I hope that you come back soon! Enjoy!
