I had a completely different topic for today, but I just decided to change it at the last minute. I want to talk about mental health and how it affects us all differently. As many of us know, the rate of depression and anxiety has risen a lot since the pandemic. For a lot … More Mental Health and the Whirlwind of Negativity. (My random thoughts)
In the last eight to twelve weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about things. When I was younger, I used to think tears were a sign of weakness. I believed if I couldn’t keep my emotions in check then I would be considered weak and fragile. As I got older, I gave myself permission … More You’re NOT Weak, You’re actually Strong!
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?)
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)
My ongoing journey to Chasing “Financial” Freedom has been a roller coaster with many loops, turns and steep hills. I’ve failed tremendously. I gave up over and over again. I’ve came across many roadblocks. Unexpected life situations continuously popped up and delayed my path, but I kept going. Somehow, I would find the strength … More Self-Discipline for Success and Trying to Move Forward in this New Normal (Chasing Freedom Pt 2)
What is your version of extraordinary? Does it line up with what you think the world’s version of extraordinary is? Or do you have your own definition? Growing up I always wanted to be great. I wanted to achieve great and have greatness thrust upon me, but what does that mean? Some people might … More Becoming Your Own Version of Extraordinary!
Today I was reflecting on life. I feel like the last 9 months I have just been trying to stay sane. I wish there were a pause button to life, but unfortunately there is not one. You just have to keep moving. In a recent post I mentioned how the things that once brought … More Chasing Peace Pt 1 (The Calming Effects of the Ocean)
Today, I want to talk about something that I’ve been having a really hard time with these days. If you’ve followed my posts from over the years, then you know how much I’ve been through these past years. Some things are self-inflicted I guess you could say, but most things I didn’t have control … More Bad Habits or Just Depression? (My Current Focus)
This month I reached my limit of trying to find the WHY in every situation. I always felt like I needed to know why things happen the way they do. I needed to know the WHY so everything could make sense. I hate when things happen, and I don’t have an answer for it. … More No longer searching for the WHY! (I’m Choosing Mental Freedom!)
