In 5th grade, I won first place in my elementary school’s D.A.R.E essay contest — a one page piece about how dance classes kept me drug free. As a reward, I got to read my essay in front of the entire graduating class and our families. I like to jokingly say that it was then that my writing career began.
Hi, I’m Emily.
Aside from my (still budding) writing career, I’m a 26-year-old blogger, FitFluential Ambassador and wife.
On July 14, 2012, I married my husband, Jordan. He is my best friend and one of the most patient guys I know.
Because the road to a successful writing career is rarely straight and narrow, it might mean babysitting on weekends to make ends meet, or writing for free in order to grow your portfolio — both of which I’ve done. It’s worth it.
Throughout this blog, I share the adventures that I have with my family and friends, my passion for fitness and health, the journey I’ve had post-graduation, and the ups and downs of married 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.
