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
Something I wish I had learnt earlier on in my blogging journey is how much I needed blogging friends. I think alot of us when we first start out blogging just do whatever. Which is expected, because when you go into something blindly you don’t really know the right or wrongs. I don’t know about you, but I did zero research before starting my blog. I just found WordPress, entered my details and created my site. Without actually thinking about the stuff I needed to do, in order to achieve my goals.
With Valentine’s day just around the corner I know there is this expectation in the air. what will he/she buy me? Will they like my gift? What will we have for dinner? Will everything go perfectly? I am truly so excited for those who celebrate this season.
And for those that don’t, well I am there with you. You don’t need a holiday to show that you love someone. I have a real love hate relationship with Valentine’s day. It should be called single awareness day instead. Because for the rest of the year I pay no mind to the fact I am single. But around valentines day it becomes a regular thought in my mind.Read more
At some point in our lives we have all had a jealous heart. Whether it’s the promotion you should have gotten, or watching someone else live out your dream. We have all experienced that feeling of “that should be me”. Jealousy is a normal emotion to feel but it can get out of hand easily and cause alot of problems if you aren’t careful. Having jealousy in your heart can be really damaging to your mental health, and can often cause issues in relationships.Read more
We have all used the beloved unfollow button at some point in our lives, and don’t lie to me and tell me you haven’t. There is a reason why the unfriend button is there on every single social media platform.
Personally I utilise the unfollow button on almost every social media platform I own. I am always clearing out my online friend lists. Just like in offline life, we don’t hang around or be-friend people who are bad people, so I am a firm believer in not inviting them into my online space either. If I wouldn’t be friends with them in life then I won’t be friends with them online. We really need to normalise removing people from our social media platforms. So many people get upset and offended if they find out that you unfollow them. But alot of the time it’s just because of the content they post. If I don’t like it, I’ll unfollow you. It doesn’t mean anything other than that.
Today I’ll be sharing some reasons as to why the unfollow button should be used more and how it can help filter out that bad stuff!Read more
For a long time now I have debated sharing this post I originally wrote in 2017, as you can tell by the title I lost my best friend. I went a whole 22 years of my life avoiding death and funerals, until the moment I stepped through those doors where we celebrated her life.
My intention behind posting this is to really share the story and share how my mental health suffered through this. But its also a story of hope and how I healed from this loss. It was a rough time in my life, I struggled and you’ll read that in the post shortly. I really want this to give people hope that things do get better after something traumatic happens in your life, I am an example of that. I hope you learn that healing takes time, and just like any wound it takes time to heal from it.
It’s hard for me to share something so personal, but I need to practice what I preach. I tell my readers all the time that being a good blogger means you need to be vulnerable, and you do. Which is why I’m choosing to share this with you. I hope it helps you and brings you hope that you can heal from whatever it is you’re going through, whether its a loss of a loved one, a funeral, or a tough situation.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
