About Me

 Hi! Welcome to Be the Sunshine! My name is Marisa and I’m just an average 22 year old gal trying to make my way through life. 

I have always loved writing; english and language arts were always my favorite subjects in school (actually they were the only subjects I liked). I didn’t really do much writing on my own after graduating from high school. My mom bought me a journal in February of 2015. I picked up writing just a little bit, but nothing heavy. I eventually began to write more and more. I came to a strange realization about how much I enjoy typing so I figured a blog would be the perfect fit for me, which is how we got here. 

I’ve been active duty in the Air Force for 4 years now and work as an x-ray tech, R.T. (R), in Texas. I’ve got the best boyfriend, Andrew, who’s been my biggest cheerleader for the past 3 years and we have the sweetest pup, Bella, who stole our hearts this past March. 

My obsessions include carbs (espcially bread and mac n cheese), Christmas, sunflowers, sunsets (just the sky in general tbh), and my ripped jean jacket. But not necessarily in that order. 

I love to promote happiness, positivity, and always looking on the bright side of things. 

Here you can find posts about my everyday life, things I’ve learned, things I’ve experienced, and everything in between. 

And remember;

If you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine.
