Something I have been looking into recently are attachment styles. Now this isn’t the usual type of content I would ever post on my blog. Relationships aren’t really my niche, but as you know I tend to write things on this site that I’m dealing with in that moment. And right now I am head first in learning about attachment styles and how it can affect our adult relationships.Read more
If you are single and trying to find love in the 21st century you will be able to relate to almost everything I talk about in this post. Without going into too much detail on my own personal experiences, I myself am on the market to find the man of my dreams. This sounds like a dating show doesn’t it?!Read more
I recently started dating myself, and honestly she’s the best person I have ever met. Self-dating is something that I have started doing fairly recently. Probably in the last couple of months. I suffer with anxiety, and I struggled for a long time being able to go out by myself. It can make you insecure. Wondering if people are looking at you, or making fun of the fact you’re alone somewhere. But actually, it was quite the opposite experience. I told myself that I never notice or pay attention to those out alone. So why would I be any different?Read more
I don’t know about you, but this year especially I have come to appreciate the people I have around me. With everything happening with the pandemic, it has reminded me that life is fragile and can be taken away at any moment. There is still so much turmoil and hate in the world, and I don’t think there will ever be a time where we are all unified as one race. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t things we can do to show our love and appreciation for others.
Showing love to others doesn’t need to be big and elaborate, it can be a small act of kindness or a small gesture in some way to brighten someones day. In todays post we’ll go through some ways you can show those around you that you appreciate them. Depending on your own love language, you might already do some of these things. But I thought it would be a good idea to spread some love and positivity into the world today, because boy do we need it.Read more
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
