3 Things I Like To Do After A Weekend Binger

So, I have to tell on myself guys, this past weekend I ate horribly. I mean I probably ate/drank my body weight. I went to a family reunion in Kansas, and if you know anything about the country, you know they like to eat there. I have no regrets, because you should never walk through life with regrets, only life lessons. So, that being … Read More 3 Things I Like To Do After A Weekend Binger

Shedding the Weight

My pastor was preaching the truth this past Sunday at church. I mean he was preaching, preaching. You know the type of sermons, that make you question everything and the message sticks with you like glue. His sermon this week spoke about shedding the weight. When he talked about, “shedding the weight,” he was speaking about emotional baggage, individuals in your life, stress, worries, … Read More Shedding the Weight

Hot Girl Summer but Add Body Positivity to the Mix

It’s Spring, which means Summer and warm weather are right around the corner.

Life and The Pursuit of Happiness

It’s okay to not know what is next, and you can’t be hard on yourself for not knowing. We unfortunately don’t have a crystal ball that magically tells us what life has in store for us, therefore we can’t put pressure on ourselves for not knowing. I’ve had this conversation with my friends recently, as for we are all approaching our mid-20’s and we … Read More Life and The Pursuit of Happiness

Breaking Up With A Friend

Breaking up with a friend is never easy. People come and go, and I truly believe every connection you make with someone else serves a purpose. It could be as simple as you were in need of a good friend, and there they were, helping you through life. But it is also natural to outgrow your friends, and I say that in the most … Read More Breaking Up With A Friend

Me Time = Bath Time

Taking time for yourself is essential, and for months I failed to see how important “me-time” really is. I work three jobs, I have a fiancé and three fur-babies that need my attention, and I also am a masters student. And when it comes down to time, there just simply isn’t ever enough. I was finding that I had no time for myself, because … Read More Me Time = Bath Time

Finding Your Zen

I am the least flexible person you will ever meet. I’ve never been able to touch my toes, I can barely touch my ankles without pulling something in my back. But what fascinates me about Yogi’s is their health, wisdom, patience, and dedication. It would take me years to do what master Yogi’s do. Such as do a hand stand without anything to lean … Read More Finding Your Zen

Live Life Like No One is Watching

Have you ever wanted to do something so bad but you are too afraid to, because of how the world may perceive you? For instance, I’ve always wanted to jump into a water foundation, why? Because I saw it on the tv show Friends. Nevertheless, I’ve always wanted to do it but I never have, because I am afraid of how others will react. … Read More Live Life Like No One is Watching

It Is Okay, To Not Be Okay

It’s okay to be sad, angry, distant, and even alone. But when you are in the spaces, you have to know how to get yourself out of them. It’s funny how when we are clearly not okay, we do everything in our power to appear okay. We tend to push back our tears, pain, anxieties and walk through life with a smile. It can … Read More It Is Okay, To Not Be Okay

The Power of Journaling

A journal. An introspective tool to understand and guide you through your mental capacity for knowledge, love and aspirations that you collect throughout your days. Journaling is so much more than keepsake diary filed of memories, such as a diary. It has the ability to provide a much needed release from anxieties, stress, and even self-doubt. Which all have the ability to fester until … Read More The Power of Journaling

Finding Wholeness in a Broken World

A global pandemic, political chaos, protests around the world fighting against racism, wildfires and more, all in one year. No matter what you stand for, this is a lot of information to process, and now more than ever we need to find wholeness in ourselves, in a time lacking fulfilment. Most of us can probably agree that we are emotionally drained, tried, and ready … Read More Finding Wholeness in a Broken World

Loving Yourself Should be a Priority

Loving yourself isn’t always easy. You probably hear the phrase “you must love yourself before you can love others all the time”. But loving yourself means you have to come face to face with every part of you. Not just physically, but mentally, and emotionally as well. Becoming one with everything that embodies you as a person. This isn’t an easy process, and for … Read More Loving Yourself Should be a Priority
