  • Hello There!

    I'm Sarajane, a blogger, workshop facilitator, and career consultant based out of Asheville, NC.

    I believe chasing your dreams shouldn't be so hard and I dedicate my energy to helping others to take large and small steps in their career while maintaining creative inspiration.

    This is my space to create whatever comes from my heart. It's not marketable, it's not always good, but it's honest. It's not uncommon to find stories from my experience, portrait projects, my thoughts on the world, and tips for how to make the most out of life.

    Grab a cup of coffee (or bourbon) and make yourself at home!

    If you're interested in a workshop or a 1 on 1 consultation get in touch through the consultation tab at the top of this site!

    with love,
    Sj

On Working During Vacation.

I’m was on vacation last week. Well, it was more of a staycation really. I was home but, not technically working. I gave myself the week to wake up whenever I wanted to, to do whatever I wanted to and to explore or not explore whatever I would like. While there’s certainly no ‘right’ way to vacation, I did think to myself as I woke up this morning that I can’t remember a time that I took a full vacation without working in any capacity. From what I can remember, I’m guessing it was some time in college?

On Finding Joy in Routine.

I’ve always thrived with a bit of routine. I like knowing that I’m aware of everything I need to get done, that I’m not neglecting my health and my happiness and quite frankly routine is the best way for me to ensure that I fit it all in. A morning routine is something that has always meant a lot to me. Having a morning routine is proven to increase productivity and happiness. It’s personally a priority because I believe that it’s my choice what kind of day I will have that day. Whatever I start the day with will likely bleed into the rest of my day. Days add up to weeks, weeks to months, months to years and years to the rest of your life. If I want to have a well lived life, I think it starts with well lived mornings.

Beautiful Things: The Desire Map Planner

OK you all know how much I love a good planner and how much I love a bit of soul searching right? Well, did you know that there’s a planner for both? Today is the launch day for the 2017 Desire Map planners and that seems like the most appropriate Beautiful Things post I could think of!

On The Big Plan and Stalling Your Dreams. (The Evolution Series)

When I was in elementary school I used to write short stories. The only thing I can really remember from any of them is a scene in one where the main character is running from a monster of some kind on a muddy trail. They weren’t aware that their feet were leaving prints in the mud and leading the monster directly to them. In middle school I wrote an essay length poem about being a leaf that fell from a tree at the end of Fall and I loved it so much that I memorized it even though it had nothing to do with the assignment. In high school I took to writing skits for our churches youth group and writing and taking photos for the yearbook. In college I joined the paper, I co-created a feminist poetry band (that deserves a post in itself if I’m being honest with you) and I wrote mediocre short stories that tapped into the strangest and least censored version of myself.

On Getting Back to Myself. ( The Evolution Series )

I finished my workday feeling fine. It had been a relatively productive day and ultimately I knew what was expected of me and what I needed to accomplish the next day to stay on top of everything. I’d recently realized that I had more free time on my hands than I’ve had in a while and I was more in line with my vision for a successful life than I have ever been before. I walked in the door, put my bag in it’s usual home on the floor and buried my head into the chest of my partner. I could feel my shoulders turned in, the heaviness of my eye lids, the exhaustion behind my forehead and the slight frown on my face. He asked how my day was and I responded, “It was fine, I got a lot done.”
