This week we talk to Danielle, also known as Dani, creator of Lived. Learned. Blogged., is a small-town raised city girl. Her motto is to live a life of purpose over pity, and with that she lives openly, in the hopes that others will feel inspiration and comfort from her experiences. She has dealt with anxiety, depression and Ulcerative Colitis since college, and just last year she battled a blood clot in her head. Nevertheless, none of this has stopped her from living out her best life with all that life has to offer, and aims to both raise awareness and prove that you can still have a fulfilling and happy life despite life's obstacles. - Follow Dani here: Check out her blog here: Join us here!:
