The Mind Trap of Advertising Commercial Holidays: Valentine’s Day Edition

Hello, dear readers! It's Valentine's Day! Or, for most of my life, I stubbornly referred to it as Single Awareness Day (and honestly, it still is), because I wasn't lucky enough to be in a relationship and have something to celebrate. I was basically this lovey-dovey holiday's Scrooge. It wasn't until I got a little… Continue reading The Mind Trap of Advertising Commercial Holidays: Valentine’s Day Edition

Something A Little Different

So, this is the first year I'm not celebrating Single Awareness Day, but instead, celebrating Valentine's Day in all it's couply, mushy, over-priced messiness. That is...such a new feeling, for me. And I couldn't be more excited. And something that, if you've been following this blog since I started it, back in 2012, you'll know… Continue reading Something A Little Different

This Post is Definitely All Over The Place

I've written about my brain before. Sometimes, my brain really sucks. You know, like how it always goes to the worst case scenario whenever a situation pops up. Or how I overthink every little thing, to the point of exhaustion. Or how the combination of these things makes life just a little more complicated than… Continue reading This Post is Definitely All Over The Place

If It Means a Lot to You

I'm not really sure where this post is going to go. I just know that my heart hurts right now and I need to get something out before I go crazy. I recently lost someone. Someone who means a damn lot to me. Worse, I chose to give them up, just as equally as they chose to let me… Continue reading If It Means a Lot to You

The Surprising Insights Amidst Heartbreak

It's been awhile since my heart broke. I'll let you in on a secret: I didn't miss the feeling. I didn't miss the pain in the back of my eyes from the pressure of crying too much and too frequently, resulting in swelling and redness that I usually just tell my coworkers are allergies and… Continue reading The Surprising Insights Amidst Heartbreak

Discovering My Own Toxicity

I write about self-worth a lot. I think about it a lot. It is such a difficult thing to deal with. It's something so easy to be hypocritical about. I constantly tell others why they deserve the world, why they are amazing human beings, why they should love themselves and what it is about themselves… Continue reading Discovering My Own Toxicity

Measuring Worth, Recreating Mindsets and Dealing with Desire

Y'all ready for a personal post? Brilliant. I'm sure I've shared snippets of this in previous blog posts, so feel free to peruse and search to your hearts content if you want to know more (also, apologies for beating a dead horse) but recently, I've been struggling with body image and how that translates regarding… Continue reading Measuring Worth, Recreating Mindsets and Dealing with Desire

Single Status: A Choice and a Dream

Valentine's Day is always a hit or miss for me emotionally. Most years, unfortunately, I find myself pretty miserable, wishing I had someone to spend it with and someone to spoil with letters filled with gushy confessions they already know and a ridiculous amount of chocolate. Spending 23 years solo will have that affect on… Continue reading Single Status: A Choice and a Dream

The Vision of a Hopeless Romantic

In trying to write more for this blog, I have planned out different posts and whatnot that I want to write about. For example, I still need to write my Valentine's Day post (oops) and my workout update post (reached the halfway point, yes!), but instead of writing either of the posts that I have planned… Continue reading The Vision of a Hopeless Romantic
