Accept Failure

That's right, I said it. Accept failure? Easy. Accept your failures? All right, not so easy. And we know why. Because it means we were not good enough, we messed up, or we were just plain unlucky. There are so many negative thoughts in our head, not just those three. They flutter around our failures and… Continue reading Accept Failure

The High School Experience

How am I not dead? How am I not dead? In the last few months, I've found myself stumbling over this question a lot. And it's not because I'm having an existential crisis...been there done that. Everything will end. No, I'm not asking myself that question because I'm in a bad mental state. I'm asking it… Continue reading The High School Experience

The Immortals

They're out there, the immortals. They go to work, buy groceries, teach children. They cry, they scream, they fight, they mess up. But still, they are immortal. At least, that's my take on it. No, this isn't about ghosts. No, it isn't some weird, otherworldly phenomenon. This is going to be a shorter, guided reflection… Continue reading The Immortals

Women, rightfully so, have been the butt of many jokes and memes because of this phrase. Too many people say… Continue reading Don’t Worry About It

Getting Sick

Today's article brought to you by a particularly sick and extremely annoyed writer. I'm sick. Stuffy nose, sore throat, fatigue, fever, the whole shebang. I feel pretty lousy. And I feel like I'm making negative progress on everything I'm doing. I had plans for the week, for the day. Soon enough I felt completely unaccomplished even… Continue reading Getting Sick

Buzz The Bee, Motivation

Space and Kindness

Welcome back! Or should you be saying that to me? Let's talk. How long can a hiatus from something go on for before it becomes neglectful? How many months, years, or decades can one spend away from something before it's considered abandonment? Sounds like pretty complicated stuff BUT (luckily for us), the answer is in the intention.… Continue reading Space and Kindness

Battling Ourselves: Self-Esteem

We claim we live to better our lives, right? Don't we? Many of us do at least. Healthy foods, exercises, mental challenges to keep us young all dot our days but it doesn't seem to quite cover all our bases. Thinking we've neglected the never talked about "mental health", we may work to incorporate meditation,… Continue reading Battling Ourselves: Self-Esteem
