Halloween can mean a lot of different things to many people, but to me Halloween is the time of year where we can take a break from being ourselves. For one night (or a few nights if you’re a multi-day celebrator) you can be someone else (or something else). Besides giving into my sweet … More What I like about Halloween Time
Today I just wanted to touch on the mind and body really quick. I was thinking a lot about Body Dysmorphia the past few weeks, and I thought it was interesting how much our minds can play tricks on us. I was thinking about me when I was in my early twenties and me … More The Power of the Mind and What It Can Make You Believe & See. (Body Dysmorphia)
Lately I’ve been thinking about pressure, and how I handle it. I used to always seem to draw a blank when time was ticking, but once it came down to the wire something would click, and I always made my deadline. The last few years my anxiety has intensified, and that last minute click … More Caving under pressure? Self-sabotage? Mental Health Issues? (Which one is it?)
This week I was thinking a lot about time and patience. Most of us want things to happen right away. We often turn away from things once we realize it might take years, or longer than we initially expected. I remember when I was in college, and I changed my major to psychology. I … More This is Your Sign to Go for It! (Stop Running from Your Passion!)
If you didn’t watch How I Met Your Mother you might not know what a Woo Girl is, or maybe it is a universal word and I’m just not aware of it. I’m not sure, but I’ve only heard of the word from watching the show years ago. I remember watching the episode (season … More Confessions of a Woo Girl (I Now know why they Woo)
In my last post I talked about the red flags when dealing with two-faced friends (or should I say Frenemies). Growing up I wish I caught on to all the signs that were in front of me, but I guess that’s what life experience is about (learning and gaining wisdom). For the most part, … More 3 Potential Red Flags that you Might Stumble Upon Before the First Date.
For today’s topic I want to speak on the red flags in friendships. One thing you will probably learn when you get further into adulthood is that we trust people more than we should in our teens and early twenties. We’re more optimistic and we tend to look for the best in people. It’s … More Frenemies? … 5 Clues that your Friend might just be a Friendly Enemy? (One of the lessons that I’ve learned growing up.)
I don’t know what it is, but lately I’ve been afraid to think big. It feels like when I get my hopes up, I get let down so it’s easier to just not think so far ahead. I hate saying what I truly want (whether in my head or out loud) in fear that … More Afraid to Dream, Afraid to Believe. (Am I Jinxing my Goals by being Too Enthusiastic, and thinking too far ahead?)
In the past few years, I’ve been looking at the world through a different lens. As I probably mentioned in previous posts before, the world has become a little grayer. It’s like I’m living in Ravenswood. Remember the original Pretty Little Liars show? When they went to Ravenswood for the first time, it was … More Mentally and Emotionally Surviving without Apologies. (Chasing Peace pt 3)
Since I was younger, I’ve always yearned to travel. I used to buy travel books and check them out from the library as a child. I would also grab all the free brochures in those travel agency businesses. It was my way to have pretend time and just think about where I would want … More Traveling Solo … (I Wish I Wasn’t Afraid to Travel Solo when I was in my early 20’s).
