Don’t Wait Till You’re Old & Grey To Forgive Yourself

One of my goals in 2022, is to continue with a personal journal consistently. This time around, I chose to go the route of using prompts; the self searching kind. One of the questions which recently came up, was What 3 things do you need to forgive yourself for? You can imagine that not only…

I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me About Pt 6: Soul Mates

It’s engrained in us from a young age, the Prince and the princess find each other and stroll off into the sunset. The idea is lovely. Roses and petals maybe even some glitter and fireworks. Or like others claim, a jolt to the chest or electricity. But is that really how it works? Or is…

Body Wars

I’ve blogged about it previously, but it’s a funny feeling stepping into myself. I genuinely feel like I am becoming me- I know I have said that previously, but I can’t stress it enough, it really is a peeling away. This week on the blog, I’m diving into the war we play around with our…

2020 was a YEAR! I think that’s one thing we can all conclusively say! There was literally no way any one could have predicted the turn it took for the entire planet, but while the majority of conversation regarding 2020 is very negative whether politically, socially or financially; for me- 2020 genuinely was a great…

Navigating My Triggers

I am a runner. Nope, not the running shoes, heavy breathing and sweaty running runner. The I-no-longer-feel-happy-safe-settled-or-off running from relationships like a track and field athlete. Being home quarantined allows you time to do a lot of thinking. Some of that thinking may not be so good, but ultimately it allows you to take stock…

Why Journaling Should Be Part Of Your Self-Care Routine

Self-care, a word that is trending and bouncing off of every lifestyle blogger blowing up Instagram, but other than taking bubble baths, using masks, reading and the like, what are some of the more IMPORTANT things we need to implement more regularly into our lives once the trend disappears?
