Cake for Breakfast

As much as I talk a big game about letting go and being a renissance woman, I really do need some help in figuring out my life.

I mean, I quit my job, got two tattoos, then moved back in with mom and dad.

If that doesn't scream "quarter life crisis" I don't know what does.

Enter, Cake for Breakfast.

Not long ago, 20sb offered bloggers to subscribe to Cake for Breakfast from Your Awesome Life in exchange for writing a blog post about it. It definitely came at the right in my life because I need help figuring life out.

What is Cake for Breakfast exactly, you ask?

Well - you get a workbook, audio sessions, and weekly emails with journal writing prompts. All of these help you focus on who you are, what you want, and how to get there. But not necessarily because of jobs or carreers. (Although that can be part of it!) It's more about finding out who you are and becoming the person you know you can be.

Basically, it's fantastic.

But hard. Let me explain.

I don't know about you - but I'm not good at thinking about the good things about myself. It's not that I have a low self-esteem or anything, but I don't want to brag and then it causes me to ignore what is good about myself.

So maybe there's a small lack of self-esteem in there. But just a tad.

Which made some of the prompts hard for me. Especially when one whole week's writing prompt was "What makes you awesome."

But it was good. I NEEDED that hard writing prompt. And not just to write something down to say I did it, but to really focus and do it. I needed to think about myself, who I am, what I'm good at, where I want to be, and where I want to go. It's rough because I hate defining these things.

But sometimes you just have to.

Cake for Breakfast - it's exactly what I need.

If you're interested, you can get some cake for yourself!

Also- Ashley who is the brains of this whole operation is fantastic. I got to know her a bit through VEDA and basically, she's the most adorable person ever. You'll love her!


  1. That sounds really interesting! Self exploration is always a little tough for me too. When I take surveys or have to answer questions about myself, I'm always so indecisive about my answers...kind of makes for a frustrating process, lol.

  2. this is such a good idea. i think we all have some insecurities about ourselves whether we like to admit it or not.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
