I Make My Best Life Decisions Spontaneously, And It's Gotten Me Pretty Far In Life Already

Everyone laughs at me when I say this but I swear by this…

I Make My Best Life Decisions Spontaneously, And It's Gotten Me Pretty Far In Life Already
Ashley Denton

My best life choices I have made completely spontaneously, with almost no time to think about them. Some may say that this is completely and utterly irresponsible, but honestly if it works, it works.

Everyone told me that I couldn't just wake up one day and walk into a car dealership and walk out with a brand new car but here I am a year later with a new car. My dream has always been to open up and run my own music and theater school. Yes, I always knew I wanted to do it but I had no idea where to even begin! So, one morning I woke up and thought:

"The longer I sit here and actually THINK about this, the longer of a period of time I have to talk myself out of this."

The next thing I did was go down to the county building and get my business's DBA (which is just a fancy way of getting my business's name copy write. Now I am almost a year in and my clientele has skyrocketed!

My most recent spur of the moment life decision was moving out of mom and dad's and getting my own place with my two absolute best friends. This choice was literally made in an hour-long car ride with my besties and we moved in five days later!

It just made sense. We all know we can rely on each other and we have an absolute blast together no matter what we are doing! Now that we are all moved in and settled, things are really coming together, decorating has personally been my favorite part; you walk in and you KNOW it's a girls apartment.

Pretty. Pink and as our parents call it "The Sorority House." I mean I can't blame them with that one especially with the huge "Saturdays Are For The Girls" flag we have hanging up in our living room but it's FINE!

Yes, I do realize that I am growing up and I am getting older, and this way of making life decisions probably won't work MUCH longer, especially when it comes to the BIG stuff like marriage and kids but I still have a few years. I'm only 22 and this "way" has gotten me pretty far in life already.

So for now, I'm going to continue living my life saying yes, and jumping into something two feet first, one risk at a time.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
