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
2021 has been a year, and honestly I have learnt about myself more this year than any other year. Maybe its because of the pandemic and I haven’t had anything else to do. Or whether this was just the year I was supposed to flourish and become who I am meant to be. From speaking to other people they have said the same thing. They have felt that this last 18 months have provided us some time to sit and reflect on life and who we are. And really I feel like thats what’s happened.Read more
I can’t actually believe that its taken me 26 years to love myself, but here I am.
As many of you know, over the last 6 months I have embarked on a new lifestyle journey. Learning to love and respect my body, mind and soul. I have been exercising and eating better so that I can become better. But not only have I been learning to love my body, but myself as a whole. Never before I have I felt such peace with myself. Everyday I learn something new about who I am and who I am becoming. I have spoken to a few people about this topic, and so many have said that they are at a point even still at 40-50 years old where they don’t love themselves. Society has such a large part to play in this. With their unreal beauty standards and expectations of how we should look and be as people.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
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
Life is not a race it’s more of a slow, hard, cold, wet walk with a bunch of people ahead of you.
There is a certain unspoken pressure on us as people that we are meant to be at certain life stages at certain times. And we are meant to be this kind of person with these kind of goals. It’s sad that society has done this to us and if we don’t meet these expectations then we see ourselves as failures. It’s sad really because we often compare our lives to others and forget we are all on our own journeys.Read more
To Feel beautiful is hands down one of the best feelings in the world, am I right?
There is something so uplifting about feeling confident in who you are and what you are. It’s deeper than outward appearance. Feeling beautiful is more than just what we look like, it’s about who we are as people. Society deems only one type of person beautiful, and thats the people you see on the front of magazine covers and on adverts. But let’s face it, the average person doesn’t look like that. And its easy for us to feel self doubt or insecurities, but that doesn’t mean we are less beautiful than they are.Read more
Do you feel as though you have good body positivity? Do you love yourself and the body that you are in? I know it can be hard to answer those questions, because for me it depends what day it is. Some days I wake up feeling great, I love myself and I embrace who I am. Others I wake up feeling the total opposite. And thats totally normal.
We are living in a world where there is one type of body that is admired by the masses and one type of body that is socially acceptable. And if our bodies don’t fit that standard it can leave us feeling less worthy, or not beautiful enough. Which should not be the case at all.Read more
