Worker Bee Syndrome

I don’t want to be a working bee anymore. It is a true disease of society. This idea is that we have to go to college to just one day specialize in one profession for the rest of our lives until we are tired, withered, lifeless, and eventually our lives just come to an end.

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 Am Perfectly Imperfect

Embracing my self, loving my self, and cherishing my own worth, has never been easy for me. I often think of myself with little regard.

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.
