Consider this a down payment on my future.
Three and a half weeks ago, I was awake at 4:00 am staring at the wall of my hotel room. I was on a work trip and I couldn’t sleep. No matter where I tried to take them, my thoughts kept being chased by this one phrase: invest in yourself.
I was attending a marketing conference, and while I picked up a lot of tips and inspiration for my work, I couldn’t help but gather some for my personal development as well.
The idea that the most important thing you can invest in is yourself was a common thread among a lot of the sessions I attended. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense to me. Even if you’re not beginning some entrepreneurial journey, investing in yourself is going to have ripples that positively impact so many other parts of your life. If I invest in myself, I’m going to be a better wife, daughter, friend, employee, human.
It begins with Being Mrs. Benedict.
Here’s my investment. I want to hone my creative sensibilities. I want to document my life. I want to create content that helps me connect with others. I hope that Being Mrs. Benedict will help me fulfill all these things.
So what’s to come? Hopefully, you’ll see a lot about my hobbies—crochet, photography, crafting, and baking. I’ll share with you beautifully overthought (I say this both in jest and with a hint of truthfulness) sentiments on things like friendship, young adulthood, womanhood, and more.
I aim to publish a new post every Sunday morning. It’s a lofty goal to set, but it’s a step towards putting an end to half-heartedly investing in myself. Plus, I’m definitely one of those people who works well under pressure.

What have you done to invest in yourself? I’d love to hear from you all about what you like to devote time to.
Talk to you again soon,
