Welcome to Just via Syl, my (internet) home.
I want to make you think. I want to make you laugh. I want to make you more confident. I want you to feel less alone. I want you to be happy, mentally and physically.
My friends and family know me as Sylvia (nicknames aplenty), and this blog is a place where I share my musings, as a daughter, friend, sister, lover, and a lifelong learner. I’m using this platform as a way to reflect on experiences and illustrate the importance of curiosity, creativity, improvement, and developing genuine, long-lasting connections/relationships to people and places. I’m deeply in love with learning and believe that when you stop learning, you stop growing.
My goal for this blog is to bring more positive energy into the world, encourage and motivate myself and others to live our best lives (and if we’re not happy with where we are, to proactively do something about it!), and share my knowledge and experiences not limited to self care/love/confidence, organization, motivation, productivity, goal-setting, and finding happiness even in the toughest of times. I welcome you to discuss, learn, grow, and share with me and with one another.
When I’m not blogging, schooling, or working, I enjoy reading, kickboxing, exploring new places and gaining new perspective and experiences, vlogging, sipping on bubble tea, seeing/petting dogs and losing my cool, taking photos, doodling, and letting my mind wander and write. I also get incredibly excited over planners, stickers, good puns and dad jokes.
I hope that you are able to find something interesting, helpful, or new to take away with you. I welcome you to disagree with me. This is not an attitude, challenge or a dare…I really love hearing what you have to say. If you leave my blog feeling a bit more inspired, informed, curious, or empowered, then I have done what I have set out to do.
I love connecting with amazing people and hearing others’ stories, finding little gem of places to visit and cool sights to take in. If you know of anything I should check out, please leave me a message to introduce yourself/email me/connect with me via Instagram or Twitter– I also want to be a resource to you and know what type of content you want to see more of. My story is still being written and really, thank you for being part of it 🙂
