Value Your Life

We aren't dying, so we inherently tend not to value our lives. This is the best thing that I have been able to pull from watching chronically ill YouTubers like Emily Hayward, Daniel Thomas, Claire Wineland, The Frey Life (Mary Frey), and many others. Why should you watch someone with a terminal illness? Why should… Continue reading Value Your Life

Mental Health Monday, What I Mean When I Say

“I’m Not Depressed”

This might not apply just to me but I'm going to act like it does because I can only ever speak for myself. When I say I'm not depressed, I mean a lot of things. I'll list them out, then we'll jump into it. I am not actively in a major depression I may be suffering from a… Continue reading “I’m Not Depressed”

You Don’t Need A Vacation

Uh-oh...controversial subject. Actually, not even controversial. Absolutely everyone will probably disagree with this statement. Even I disagree with this statement. Then why did I say it? Well, because I don't actually mean you never need a vacation or that you don't need a vacation right now to have fun but I do mean that you don't need… Continue reading You Don’t Need A Vacation

“I Don’t Regret Self-Harm”

Should I have done it? No. Do I regret doing it? No. Is it important that we break down the stigma surrounding self-harm? Yes. So in my head, what I've done to myself isn't a big deal. My scars have faded quite considerably and most times I've completely forgotten about it. But occasionally, I'll get some… Continue reading “I Don’t Regret Self-Harm”

What To Do When You Fall

Get up. Okay, okay. You know that and I know that you know that. But we don't fall that often so what we actually need to do as we are falling and right afterward can be a mystery. And I'm not just talking about physically falling. So you've fallen. Something in life has hit you hard… Continue reading What To Do When You Fall

Why Do I Write?

This week's blog will look at my writing but not the actual words. We'll be looking at the reasons why I write. If I'm being honest, there are too many for me to actually cover. However, if I'm really honest about what keeps me coming back to a blank page (or even one with a few squiggles… Continue reading Why Do I Write?

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

Finding The Balance: Inversions

Why do we practice going upside down? It's not easy, it is scary, and it's a long, slow journey to success. So why do we do it? Well, we do it because it's hard. Yoga is a beautiful thing. It's an art that focuses on the journey, not the outcome. Not saying that others don't, but this one… Continue reading Finding The Balance: Inversions
