Everything you Need to Know about Self love vs Selfishness

Whenever I read the comments on my self-love posts I am always left a little surprised by the number of people who feel that self-love is not for them. There are many different reasons for this, but a common excuse is they don’t want to be selfish. So many people (moms in particular) feel guilty about taking time for themselves because they are convinced somehow that showing themselves love will take away from others in their lives. Those same people are often the ones who share stories of how stressed and exhausted they are. They are…

Searching for Happiness – PT4: Supporting your Spirit

Hi there, it is me again. It is week four of this new super cool  Searching for Happiness series and now we are getting into the deep bits. Today’s post is all about the spirit. No not the holy spirit or the one in your basement, the cool kind, the fun kind. Is it just me or do people tend to look at you like you are a weirdo hippy, a nonmodern idiot or a judgmental hypocrite when you talk about religion or spirituality anymore? Ok, that may be a little dramatic. However, I do kind of feel…

Searching for Happiness – PT 1: Body Gentleness

I have been making some small changes lately that have been impacting my overall happiness in big ways. Naturally, I wanted to share them with all of you, so I poured up a cup of coffee and wrote my little heart out. I wrote a master list of everything that has been adding to my overall happiness and wellbeing until I could not think of anything else. I was surprised by how many things I came up with, my list ended up being pretty long with over 100 tips and tricks to be exact. After I wrote it all out…

Product Review – Pacifica – Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash

I was in the market for a new face wash, something natural and vegan. (Cause I am cool like that). I was using an olay face wash and it literally ruined my skin. I was sick and tired of the chemical unnatural feeling of the facewashes of my past so I began to research the best natural products. It wasn’t long before I came across Pacifica…

Lessons in Following my Dreams & NaNoWriMo Win

I’m back! Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? Regardless, I missed you my blogging pals and I am happy to be back in action just in time for this wonderful Christmas season. Yay! As you may know,  from my previous post, I have been enveloped in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) during the month of November. A task that took me begrudgingly away from my blog and all of you. However, this was the kind of break that I really benefited from, I stretched my creative limitations and expanded the barriers of what…

Ramblings on Risk

Good day beloved readers. I am looking to share some rambling thoughts with you today. I am looking for some advice and wisdom from you and myself… Deep breath, and here we go. The entire meaning of the above quote is all that has been on my mind lately. An idea of risk, decisions, and potential opportunities lost. It seems I am in a purgatory of sorts. A place in between action, change and risk and a place of comfort, stability, and normalcy. The last thoughts before you step onto that new path that branches from your current direction…

Searching for Happiness – Are you living someone else’s life?

Are you settling? Do you ever stop and ask yourself why am I even doing this? Stuck in that job, that relationship, that town, that lifestyle, because you are afraid because you are comfortable? You may be settling for someone else’s life and not even realize that you are doing it. As children, we are often taught by our parents to get good jobs, stay at that job, buy a house, have kids and settle down into a cookie cutter life and experience safe, nice, fluffy, happiness. Thanks, parents, sounds magical. But what happens when things don&#8217…
