My Experience at #BlackoutNC

Let me start by saying this post will probably be one of the most important posts I’ve written. Ive done my best to sit with my emotions and opinions and reflect on what i wanted to say and how i wanted to feel about it. So, here goes 🙂 In the last month or so,…

WTIO Bucket List

It’s happening. I’m going crazy in quarantine. Although things are starting to open up in phases, I can’t help but realize that a full opening of the world and the ability to do the things you once loved to do without worry may be far-fetched right now. Now that I’ve had all this spare time,…

A Moment of Peace Amidst All the Chaos

Something about a full moon always puts me in a calm and peaceful moon. Tonight, I finally got to get a good photograph of the full moon. I’m not professional photographer, but I think I did pretty good. There’s a little editing on it as well; courtesy of VSCO. I hope everyone can find a…

Remembering to Find the Calm

These last two days have been riddled with high levels of anxiety. They kind of came out of nowhere in a sense that I typically do not suffer from anxiety this high. There have just been very overwhelming feelings of worry and stress over somethings that have recently occurred between work and my personal life….

My October Affirmation List

For the month of October, roughly one month before my birthday, I took on a task of creating affirmations everyday that I use to motivate and keep myself positive. So far, I’ve made 24 affirmations (2 per morning) and it feels really good. I have an app that I use to take words from, and…

Self-Care Sunday: Lets Get Away…

This week’s highlight is dedicated to something I absolutely LOVE doing: Vacationing!

That’s why taking a vacation is so important to your…

Self-Care Sunday: Free for All! 

Today I didn’t have a specific highlight for Self-Care Sunday, but I wanted to reflect on how hectic my week has been and how important self-care will be for me today. I’ve had stress, tension and all kinds of emotions coming at me from every direction this week, and it’s caused me to neglect some…

The Christmas Tag!!!

“Chestnuts roasting, on an open fire……” 🙂 So, today I’m feeling real holly and jolly today (possibly because of the Christmas  party we are having at work today).  As an extension of my holiday cheer, I am going to do the Christmas tag for you all!  I will have the questions down at the bottom…

Because Sometimes I Long for Peace

My mom sent this picture while she was on vacation, and I thought it was the best representation of what I desired at this moment. To be in a calm environment, with no other signs of life around; just being in my presence, silencing my mind and enjoying my own little taste of uninterrupted tranquility….
