A publication about lifestyle and self-reflection.

In June 2019, Megan Portorreal created Thursday with the vibe of her favorite day of the week in mind. She found that Thursdays always made her feel optimistic, with the weekend just on the horizon, and pensive as she reflected on the week receding behind her. She realized this feeling was one of her favorites in the world and wanted to collect stories of mindfulness, self-betterment, and personal growth in a single publication.

Our goal is to write and share personal essays about self-reflection and modern lifestyle. We aim to inspire our readers and help them realize their lives are unique. Every seemingly ordinary day is just another chance to better yourself, and we encourage our writers to share their most valuable life lessons with the world.
