About Me

Hey everyone!

So I guess I should say some things about me before I expect anyone to read anything that I post. My name is Kourtney Benson, I am 21 years old and I have an undying love for coffee, music, drawing, reading and the smell of rosehip. I’m majoring in psychology and I’m an extremely indecisive person so I’ve changed my mind a million times about what I want to do with that, but if there’s one thing I know for sure it’s that I want to spend my life helping others. I made this blog more so to get my stories, thoughts and manifestos out and to help brighten others days along the way. I’m not in any way authorized to give others specific advice but I hope that through my experiences, my blog will help you realize that you are not alone and things do get better. So if any of this interests you in any way, keep reading here!

  1. Hi, read your “purpose” page and love it. Just a thought… Like you I’ve found the “struggle” to be painful and often wished it to be less so as in “Why can’t these lessons be easier?” But despite my struggles with struggle I have found that lessening them can take away the depth of what they have to offer. It’s only those times when I have leaped (or have been shoved) off the cliff and dived down into the darkness of the abyss without knowing that I would survive that I have gained the greatest insights. This hasn’t always been easy and still isn’t from time to time but I am learning to trust the process. Thanks for your blog.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Of course you are aware that you answered your own question, “Why can’t these lessons be easier?” I couldn’t have answered your question better. Unless we struggle we just don’t notice and therefor don’t spend the time and energy that is needed to grow. It’s like the biblical quote from Mathew, “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” When your’e too comfortable you don’t have the eyes to see. Though I like comfort as much as anyone I know that when I’m ready to grow I’ve got to open myself to the discomfort of just being i.e. deal with the struggle. Thanks again, Bob

  2. I love your enthusiasm and desire to help people. Also to use the experiences you go through and the knowledge you glean from those experiences. I too have a Psychology and counseling background and can hear your words coming from my mouth when choosing my profession. The tougher times certainly made me a better resource for the many students I’ve worked with and their families as well. I was mainly in a middle school setting. Now I write and while I know I helped many families and kids, I find I gained much more from my work as a counselor than I probably ever gave. Good luck.

  5. Being decisive makes the world tremble, but being indecisive is a super human power. I believe it shows that something is being forged on the inside of you and that you’re developing into someone that’s going to impact this world with a crazy, positive, contagious change. I think once all of the contents inside of you are done being shaken up and they settle down and take shape into exactly “who you are”, once you get that laser like focus to be shoot out that laser beam of decisiveness, the whole world is going to feel it.

  6. About being indecisive. Indecisive should be called adventurous, a seeker of truth. Sticking to one path is safe but boring. I let the mood or evidence guide my tide. My favorite yellow is the simple, prickly pear cactus bloom. Gorgeous!

  8. I also have trouble making decisions. Life knows that and seems to keep throwing situations at me that require a decision! Keep flexing those decision-making muscles. If it helps, don’t think of one as right and one as wrong, but one as A and one as B. And neither may be perfect. 🙂
