I’m Laney, author of Love, Laney – a self-development and wellness blog.
Originally inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project”, I set out on a mission to fill my life with happiness, gratitude, and purpose. The last two years have been a real growing period for me, and have only motivated me more to continue changing my life – and help you change yours!
To kick-start this blog, I am dedicating a year of my life to self growth and self love, and will be sharing what I learn with you -my lovely readers- every step of the way. You can stay up-to-date on that process here.
Do your future-self a favor: Answer these questions.
Does every day feel long and mundane?
Do you often find yourself overwhelmed, stressed, or unhappy?
(and here’s the big one)
How often do you spend time doing something that you LOVE?
If any of those answers were YES, know that this website is a new resource for you.
This blog is meant to teach you ways to truly LIVE your life, not just go about your routine day in and day out. You will learn about physical, mental, and spiritual health and the role they play in our happiness. You will discover new strategies to make life a little simpler. You will use all of your knew knowledge to truly change your outlook and your life.
Some more about me!
Truthfully, I wish I could condense all of my passions and dreams into a sentence to give you a quick glimpse of who I am, but it would be near impossible. Bear with me here, folks.
For starters, I’m 20 years old and living in Southern Connecticut. I’ve lived here my whole life, and as much as I disliked my town growing up, I’ve come to really appreciate everything about it. We’ve got a little bit of everything here: beaches, woods, lakes, cities, suburbs. Plus, it’s hard to be bored with NYC an hour away!
I’m currently a student, somewhere in the middle of my college career (reminder: success isn’t a straight line!). I previously studied Exercise Science with the intent to become a personal trainer, but recently made the switch to a Marketing major, which will hopefully help me land a career in a digital marketing field!
I have always enjoyed the arts, be it writing, photography, music, or just about anything else. Some of my most special memories are playing guitar in elementary school talent shows or singing with my high-school choir.
Though I moved on from my studies of Exercise Science, I’m still pursuing a personal training certification through ACSM.
My combined passions and devotion I have for living a healthy and happy life make this blog the perfect platform for me to express myself and share my knowledge with all of you.
I hope you join me on this journey of self growth!
