How Being a Writer Can Hurt Your Relationships

Here’s a sneak peek into the mind of a writer if you will… I’m a new writer. Well, actually that’s not true. I’ve been a writer pretty much my whole life. More specifically since I realized what an incredible art form writing can be. But only recently I have begun to share my work with…

Did You Get Ghosted? Maybe. Maybe Not…

Everything is so exciting when you start to make a connection with someone. The more you learn about each other, the more excited you get. You share your stories, hopes, and dreams with one another.

Self-Care is Vital to Your Wellbeing

Self-care is something we can easily neglect if we don’t give ourselves permission. Without having good boundaries and the ability to recognize our own energy depletion, we risk compromising our own needs. Occasionally, someone cares enough to remind us that it’s okay to slow down and take a break when we’ve had a difficult day….

Is Social Media Making Us Sad?

Does social media make you sad? Or is it the way that you’re viewing it? We all have friends on our Facebook and Instagram accounts who are more successful than us.

The Hardest Goodbye

Some goodbyes are great, they can’t come fast enough…good riddance. And some goodbyes are incredibly difficult. When it comes to matters of the heart, there is always grey area.

Are You an Internet Stalker?

So you’re scrolling through messages from someone you’re crushing on and you accidentally “like” a message or photo… days later! Warmth washes over you. You know what I’m talking about. Embarrassment. Shame. “OMG. They’re going to know I was looking at that conversation again! This is so embarrassing!” Embarrassment. Shame. Wait. Why though? Have we…

The Difference Between You and Them?

Nothing! I’m serious. Absolutely nothing! Every single person that you admire (or perhaps envy) is every bit as human as you. The only thing that separates you from them is YOU! Change your mindset, and believe in yourself! Change your envy to admiration and then to inspiration. Learn to imitate the things that they do…

RICH PEOPLE DESERVE TO BE JUDGED…Wait, WHAT?

Judgement knows no boundaries. People of all walks of life can be judgy, particularly when it comes to income. I’ve seen people with a lot of money, judge someone begging for change. “Get a job…” I’ve seen it from people who have been handed everything they have. I’ve also seen it from people who’ve worked…

Grow Old Together? Or Grow Wise…

Most of us share the same relationship goals… to ultimately find someone you can grow old with. But what does that mean exactly?

Quiet Your Inner Critic

Don’t believe everything you think. What is your inner critic and why do you need to silence it? It’s that tiny nagging voice that plays into our biggest fears. It tells us that we are not smart enough, handsome/pretty enough, too fat, too thin, too awkward, not good enough at our jobs… you get the…
