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…

Three Books that Taught me About Self-Love

Reading about the topic of self-love has always been the best way I have learned about my own personal limiting believes and have been able to grow and expand my goals, outlook, and perspectives. I reached out to an amazing blogger whos blog has inspired me in so many ways. Lecy from A Simpler Grace. I asked Lecy to share with us her favorite books that have taught her about self-love in her own life. Get out a pen because you might want to add these to your summer reading list. Hi! I’m Lecy and I…

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 – Part 3: Healthy Relationships

Welcome back, and to part three of this new series. Today I will be talking about healthy relationships. Because basically, I am an expert on those matters. Kidding. I am but a normal gal who is trying to find what works. So I wrote out this master list, a nonexpert normal person list about how to have healthy relationships. I hope you can find some honest and useful takeaways from this post. Cheers! Make date night a priority: Even if you can only squeeze it in once a month, it is important to spend quality time with your sweetums. Check…

The Book Lovers Tag

Hello, everyone! I have been seeing this tag post pop up everywhere lately and I thought I would give it a go. Why you may ask? Well because if there is one thing I like almost as much as reading it’s writing. So why not write about reading. You feel me?   Do you have a specific place for reading? My favorite place to read is in the cabin, with little distraction I can read a book in one weekend if it is chilly outside. So peaceful. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper? Bookmarks.  I have a few books…

June Goals

It is finally June! Can you believe it? I am so ready for summer to come, it was a terrible winter here in Newfoundland and a terrible spring so I am trying to be super happy and optimistic that this summer will make up for it all. Come on weather gods, I need the sunshine! Anyway moving along,  I was going to change this post up a bit but I have decided to keep it simple with a short list of goals for the coming month. Before we get into my goals for the month of June why not have…

Dear Bloggers, It’s not just about the money

  Dear Bloggers, Is it just me or is the blogging world quickly becoming a bit of a get rich fast scheme? It seems to me that more often than necessary there are posts all about making money blogging, public income reports and how to earn money on posts. Bloggers boast about how they made $20,000 in their first month of blogging and other crazy declarations. It is reminding me of those insanely unrealistic diet ads that so many people fall for. I am sure for those who are actually cashing in it is helpful to have these references…

May Goals

Guys is it just me or did April freaking fly? Seriously where did this month go? It has been a kind of blah April for moi I must admit, my mood, the weather. It has just been blah. Not bad, just blah. I am still patiently waiting for spring days to inspire my soul, it has been a slow process up here in this icy windy land I call home. I guess all those dresses I keep buying will have to keep waiting for their time to shine. Anyway, I am excited and a little underprepared to head into May…

My Simple 10 Step Self Care Morning Routine

Hi there, welcome back! Self-care is something I love to explore and write about. When I have time/need a pick me up I make a conscious effort the night before to start the next day in the best way possible. Having a self-care morning routine can and will set up your day and spirit to be the best it can be. Starting the day with the intention to take care of yourself will go a long way. Often times it may be hard to find the time for myself during the work week or even the weekend…

20 Ways to Show the Earth Love this Earth Day

So unless you have been living under a rock or are one of those crazy fools who hates the planet. (Kidding, not kidding.) Anyway, you may be aware that the planet like most of us has been under a lot of stress lately. As is true with yourself when going through a difficult time it is important to take a break and show yourself some much-needed self-love. However, how can a planet show itself some self-love? Well if you are looking at the cause of its stress as the life sucking invaders which is the human race…
