Self-Care Sunday: Family Time

This past week, and in the past few weeks, there has been a lot of heavy revelations that have come to us through social media. Some of us have seen video footage of police brutality (and for those who have chosen to not watch, I understand), physical assault, frightening confrontation between protestors and law enforcement,…

Self-Care Sunday: Date Night – with Yourself!

So, as we know, Coronavirus, COVID-19, #DaRona, etc. has basically shifted everyone’s life and put a temporary hault on everyone’s plans to be out and about, and we’re all home bound and forced to find something to do with ourselves to stay uplifted and productive.

Yea, I’m That Kind of Introvert.

About two years ago, my best friend showed me a video, that showed you the difference between being an introvert and an extrovert. Before watching this video, I didn’t really think I fell into the introvert category because I could be pretty social when I wanted to be. I figured I was pretty much just…
