The Face Behind The Blog

The Face Behind The Blog

Thanks so much to my friend Shelly from growingwithspawn for this tag. So grateful for her and that blogging brought us together from different parts of the world. Its been a while since I have done anything about me or who is behind this blog, so I have really jumped at the chance of doing this tag.

I like to keep alot of who I am and my personal life private, mainly for security reasons. But today I’ll share some stuff that maybe you didn’t know about me already!

Today I Am Thankful For…

Today I Am Thankful For…

Something thats really important to me, and something I like to remind people of is the good things they have in life. I especially like to do this when I’m having a rough time, it really helps to put things into perspective. Being thankful in the mist of a bad time or a bad period of mental health is something I really cling to, to help me feel better.

So today I thought I would spread some positivity in the internet world and came up with the idea of this post. I want this post to be a hub of positivity. Where we all come together to share the things we are grateful for in life, and so we can encourage and remind each other of the good things we have.

I’ll list 10 things I’m thankful for this week and I then want you to go to the comment section and list as many things as you like, that you are thankful for too.

How I Balance Blogging Around a Full Schedule

How I Balance Blogging Around a Full Schedule

It can be so hard balancing the things that come with life, some things we choose to do and some things we have to do. When I restarted my blog this year I didn’t realise that it would be like a full time job and I already have a full time job. I know some fellow blogging friends of mine have families and kids they have to look after too, so I cant even image running a blog and having to juggle all of that.

I often get asked how I post so much and how I manage to balance everything to stay afloat. So this is why this post is here! I want to share what I personally do to keep onto of my blog whilst having a full time job and other commitments. It’s not easy, but I hope these tips can help to take some weight off of your shoulders.

10 Pieces of Life Advice That I Follow

10 Pieces of Life Advice That I Follow

Were still in quite a weird time right now, and making the most out of life probably looks a-lot different than if I was writing this a year ago. But none-the-less I think its still so important that we make the most out of life. Not to get morbid here, but we don’t know when our time will be up. We don’t know when we will die, so why do we always put these off for a later time or not appreciate the time we do have here enough?

I’m writing today’s post as a reminder to you and to me too. That we must do all we can to appreciate and love the life we are in now. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so live your life today. Here are my top 10 pieces of life advice that I follow, that allow me to make the most out of life.

How I’m Learning To Be More Grateful In Life

How I’m Learning To Be More Grateful In Life

It can be really hard when you suffer from a mental illness to see the brighter side of life. Your thoughts consume you and you feel hopeless. Whenever I feel this way, I try to remind myself of the good I have in this world. I remind myself of the things that bring me and joy and make me happy. I do this exercise as a reminder to my brain that things are better than I think they are.

I read a book that a therapist wrote a few years ago when I was at my lowest mentally, and it gave this really good learning technique. It was saying out loud to yourself that you acknowledge your feelings. This triggers something in your brain so that you recognise that it is just thoughts, it’s not real or present. Doing this exercise and saying out loud the good things you have in life can help in the same way. It’s like you’re talking to a friend or a family member, reminding them everything will be okay. But instead you are talking to yourself.

My Thoughts on Blogging

My Thoughts on Blogging

I’ve been wanting to write some sort of blogging post like this for a while but never felt I knew enough to give any advice on the matter. Then I realised, I probably wont ever get to a point where I feel like I know enough knowledge to share it. So thought I would share the advice I have now, in hopes it might help new (or old) bloggers out there.

Please know, I am no means and expert at blogging. I mess up and make mistakes just like everyone else. I probably don’t do a lot of things right with my blogs, but were all learning. I just want to share the little knowledge I have.

The Truth About Self-Love

The Truth About Self-Love

Self-love is such an up and coming topic seen on blogs in 2020. Self-love and self empowerment is raging now more than ever. I wonder why that is? I think it’s because for years and years society has shaped a mould of how we should be living our lives and so many more people are coming out to say they don’t fit the mould and don’t want to. I am here for it. In todays post we will go through a quick lesson on what self-love is, what it looks like and some truths about it too, which will hopefully teach us all a little more about the topic.

How to Find Pockets of Peace In Your Day

How to Find Pockets of Peace In Your Day

Recently I have become addicted to Tik Tok, I’m not proud of it but they say the first step of beating an addiction is admitting you have one. So here I am. Haha I’m totally kidding but I really do love watching Tik Tok videos. A few months ago I stumbled across a page where a woman called Nabela, who shares these amazingly put together videos showing pockets of peace in her day. Even if she doesn’t have a great day, she finds even the small positives and I thought it was such a great idea and such a great way to remember to be grateful and see the goodness in each day.

So today I thought I would share how you can find your pockets of peace in each day. Then I thought we could start a conversation and share with each other our pockets of peace. I’ll start by sharing mine and then you tell us yours in the comments!
