Oh, hi.

I'm Kelsey. A twenty-something living in Duluth MN, who wouldn't be sane without CrossFit and living a life where all she wants to do is inspire others. Oh, and I just chopped off about 4 inches of my hair. #inspiredbyjlaw #soIstartedanewblog IMG_7308

Remember Ramblings of Change? I'll get to that (eventually).

And if you don't, no worries; you'll hear the story soon enough.

I'm finding it weird while I always seem to have posts in mind, and things to say to your beautiful faces, writing the first post is hard. It is hard to put into a few hundred words who you are and why you are here; why you want a place in this amazing blogging community. The first blogs I read, I couldn't believe this world existed. I wondered why it had taken so long to find it. This blog world we live in changed me, and continues to change me  every day. I learn so much about the human race from simple blog posts, and learn a little more about who I am.

And for that - I am grateful. I'm overjoyed that I can take a huge jump and start anew. So why A Turquoise Lining?

I'm a big believer in positivity and finding joy in the smallest things in life. I'm one to take the hard times and try to find the meaning they hold, or why they will end up making me stronger. I believe everything happens to us because it helps us become the best ( and better) version of our past self. Our past builds the foundation to our present and future selves--something we aren't always that grateful for.

While you may know them as Silver Linings, I find mine Turquoise - because we all have unique journeys through this life and I see mine through shades of turquoise, teal and mint (obviously indecisive about my favorite color).

We are given paths in this beautiful life that we have to make the best of. And ultimately, they mold us into who we've always imagined ourselves as becoming.

So why not plaster a little color along the way?
