Nowadays, it seems like everyone is talking about mental health. You have a rough day – how’s your mental health? You’re feeling emotional – how’s your mental health? You’re feeling numb – how’s your mental health? Doesn’t it sound a little excessive? But here’s the thing, the state of your mental health doesn’t impact just you. Bad mental health impacts how you feel. How you feel affects how you react. How you react impacts those that love you… I bet you know where I am going with this.Read more
Having best friends is really the biggest blessing in life. Even if those friends don’t stay for a long time, or if they’re in your life for a lifetime. It’s still a blessing to know and form relationships with so many different around in the world. I don’t know about you, but I don’t just call anyone a best friend. A best friend is more than a regular friend. It’s a person you can get deep with. Someone you can share your happy and sad times with. Someone you trust with your life. Having a best friend is so much more than a surface level friendship.Read more
At some point in all of our lives we will have encountered negative people, but I hope in your life you have encountered more positive than negative. Negativity is just something that comes with life, not everyone is on the same wave length or life path as you. Whether these people are in your work place, in your school class or even online, it’s important that were aware of the types of people who are out there, so that we can look out for them and avoid them. My intention with this post isn’t for it to be all negative. I think my intention here is more of a warning, for us to be all looking out for these types of people so that they don’t get a chance to infiltrate our lives.
The people you surround yourself with have such a great impact on your life, whether you think they do or not. They help to shape who you are, and the saying “you are who you surround yourself with” it’s so true. To lead a positive and fulfilling life, its important that your circle reflects you and your beliefs and morals. Negative people drag you down, they don’t lift you up.Read more
Welcome to part two of Interviewing my parents about being parents. I asked my parents separately the same questions and have created this series to share what they said. If you missed the first post then you missed the interview I did with my dad! You can go back and read it here.
I really enjoyed this process and hearing two both different perspectives on parenting. It’s interesting to see the differences in answers from a fathers and mothers point of view. At the end of this post I’ll do a short re-cap of both of the posts and see what differences and similarities there have been between both my moms and dads responses.Read more
I regularly speak on the types of people you should surround yourself with and how it has such an impact on who you are as a person. I saw something on Facebook not to long ago, and it wasn’t even when I was seeking blogging inspiration. A lesson here to be had that inspiration can come at the most random moments. As I was saying, I saw a post that listed 5 types of people you should surround yourself with and I was like, this would be a perfect blog topic. So here we are.Read more
Hi everyone. I’m Lima, a Relationship and Lifestyle Blogger and I happen to love tasting the waters, so I have made a lot of mistakes as a Christian. I am not exactly proud of everything I have been through that’s why I teach people how to avoid them. You can read all about it here.
I remember sitting in my room and looking through the wedding invites I have for the remainder of this year, some I have to attend and others I can just watch from home. I was delighted at first about the union until I thought about the number of people that might end up rushing into relationships just because they have one or two friends that are about to say I do or are a happy couple. This still remains the major reason people try to tolerate a toxic relationship, and try to manage the hits.Read more
For most of my adult life I have had long distance friendships. Me and my friends maintain a pretty regular friendship with 4,000+ miles between us. We met when they came here to the UK from America. They came here for a semester (around 4 months) to study and work at the church I attend. Long distance friendships, similar to long distance relationships can be hard to maintain but I’m here today to tell you why they are so worth it.Read more
I wrote a post a few weeks ago called ‘How to Lovingly Let Go of Relationships” and it mainly focused on relationships in the sense of romantic relationships. And I thought it would be good to talk on the subject again, but this time about friendships in particular. I think at times when friendships end it can be harder than relationships, depending on the reasoning behind the friendship ending.
Letting go of any type of relationship isn’t easy, especially when you can feel that things have shifted or changed between you. I hope to make it easier for you by going through some advice from when I have been through it myself. Its not easy letting go of anything, but we should do things in love always.Read more
