good morning! or good afternoon! or good night! i'm not sure when you're reading this, but i hope that whatever time you're at is a good one.
I'm not going to lie, March was another month where I didn't do a great job tracking my habits, but we're good to go with another visual tracker for April which is awesome news!! I'm just going to elaborate on each of my tasks for the month and talk about how they impacted my happiness, so let's go!
Hello everyone!!! I was requested to write this post a little while ago, and I'm super excited to write it because I think it's super relevant in the world we live in today.
Hello!!! This month's update is going to look a little bit different than January's because it's something that was harder to put on paper because its focus is on connections with people as opposed to actions and habits that can be tracked. I honestly didn't do a great job tracking or journaling about my happiness this month, so I'm going to just give a little overview on what I've learned about friendships and relationships in this past month.
Hello beautiful humans!! I was reading my devotional tonight and it was talking about how we should always remember to "count it all joy." This isn't a religious article, but that's just a little insight about where this post idea comes from! We're gonna start off by talking about some upcoming changes for the blog and then I'll talk a little bit more about why I like this little mantra so much, so stay tuned!!
Hello lovelies!! January was the month where I focused on my mental, physical, and emotional health. This month I used a habit tracker to track how well I kept up with my 5 resolutions for the month. I've always been kind of wary of habit trackers because I've always worried it would cause an unhealthy relationship with whatever it is that I'm tracking, but I have to say it was actually very motivating and empowering. It also helped me to keep track of the decisions I was making during the day and gave me time to reflect on how I was feeling at the end of the day. You can check out the habit tracker at the end of this post. I'm going to go through my specific goals and what I did during the month to keep up with them, so let's go!
It can be hard to stay thankful in the broken world we live in. It seems like everywhere we turn there's more bad news waiting for us. Things have become so bad that we're now desensitized to what's going on. With the amount of terrorism that's been in the news lately, I've begun to brush it off because now it's just one of those things that happen in our world. It's awful, and I hate that I feel that way, and I hate that all these horrible things are so common that they don't even evoke an emotional reaction anymore.
HEY GUYS! I'M BACK!! I've been gone forever and I'm going to talk about why I was gone and why it relates to stress and all of that good stuff, but before I start I have some really good news!! I wanted to keep it a surprise but I can't hold it in any longer!! I'm in the midst of developing a little booklet to help you guys out with body image. I know you guys have been patiently waiting for a body image blog post, but I'm working on this right now for you guys instead!! It'll be send via email, so if you aren't already on the email list make sure you get on there!! The sign up form should be at the end of this post, but I'll also make a new email form when I release the booklet. That's all the news I have for today, so let's get on to the post.
Hey guys!! My friend Charlotte requested this post, and I'm excited to talk about it because it's so relevant. It's something so many people struggle with, including myself. We struggle with feeling sorry for ourselves so much because as much as it sucks, it's just way easier to see the bad in a situation as opposed to trying to find something positive.
I know, it's kind of a forward title, but it's pretty accurate. Recently so many bad things have been happening-- the nation is divided by political standpoints, natural disasters are destroying homes and lives, and it seems we can't go a week without hearing about another terrorist attack. There's also personal problems we have to deal with-- the fact that you failed the test you studied for for days, the guy you like is dating someone else, and you and your parents are fighting. With so much happening in the world, how can we possibly find anything good?
