There are many times in life when I’ve said things that I wished I hadn’t. There are always many times when my words have encouraged, inspired or offered hope. I’ve come to realize that the only way to express who I truly am is to be honest, open, and “say what I need to say.”
Hi everyone! My name is Lauren and I blog at Say What You Need to Say. It all began almost 4 years ago as a way to document my upcoming wedding and slowly turned into a daily reflection of my life journey. My blog encompasses my visions of health, happiness and every day reflections as I maintain an authentic spirit and honest writing style.
Being healthy and happy go hand-in-hand for me and I feel as though I have finally achieved the balance between the two. You see, my whole philosophy is that a healthy lifestyle is ultimately found when one stops trying to be healthy and just lives healthy. Eventually, you will not feel as though it is a struggle to obtain but rather a way of life that you subconsciously live by.
I love my life! I am blessed with great friends, a remarkably loving family and a wonderful husband to share every day with. I feel fulfilled and entirely grateful for everything I have been given. I continue to grow in my faith, wellness and identity each day. I hope to shed a little inspiration with this blog by providing healthful insights, tips, and ideas on how I live my everyday life. I am no expert and I don’t believe in any way of telling others how to live, I just do the things that make me happy and if in doing so, I am able to provide any inspiration to others, than I truly feel as though I’ve made a difference.
