An Off Day

We all have them. I don't get them that often, but today is one of them. I consider myself quite the happy, grateful and positive person, but sometimes the negativity of the world will overwhelm me to the point where I just have to take a break.

Let’s Talk About Changes

Or rather the constant change in our bodies. I've gone through some ups and downs when it comes to weight. I went through pregnancy at age 19, and a whole lot of changes happen through that time, and for a while after as well. I've had periods of time where I've been quite fit, and... Continue Reading →

Whenever I feel a little down or out of sorts, I struggle to find the motivation to workout. I know that I'm not alone in this, and for the last few months, my mood has been very up and down, so I fell out of my good routines. Now I'm finally starting to get back... Continue Reading →

I Love You, and I’m Sorry!

I'm sorry that I haven't paid attention when you've been sending me all the signs. You tried so hard to tell me that I was being way too pushy and needed to back off a little, and calm down. I'm sorry I ignored you when you tried to communicate with me. I'm usually way better... Continue Reading →

I struggled with that for many years. Wanting to not lay my problems on anyone else, just... Continue Reading →

I Smiled and It Made Me Cry

About a week before Christmas I had a very powerful and wonderful experience. I tried to write about it back then, but couldn't seem to find the right words, so it ended up as an unfiltered mess in my journal instead. But now I'm giving it a second go. I can't remember exactly what I'd... Continue Reading →

Walk It Off!

Whenever my mind feels a bit too full and in need of a break, there's always one thing that helps it to calm down and get things sorted a little. That one thing is going for a walk. Lately (as you guys know) my mind has been a bit all over the place, and at... Continue Reading →
