Sunday Recap: Sifting Through Your Emotions

I know this is a late one, but I honestly was not planning on writing today. I’ve been feeling very uninspired and emotional recently-I’ve heard this from a lot of my friends as well. Things just feel more overwhelming than usual.  I became very anxious earlier this evening. This has been happening every few days now, and when it does I feel lost and insecure. Tonight was my breaking point…

Sunday Recap: You Control Your Mindset.

Happy Sunday fam. Another quarantine week down. With society having to slow down a bit, it’s given me a lot more room to focus on myself and how I handle my everyday experiences. I like to think I’m getting a lot better at shifting my environment when something bothers me. I’ve been catching myself quickly when I have a sour attitude or snap at others. Everyday I’m realizing how in…

Sunday Recap: COVID-19 Edition

Since I haven’t done a Sunday Recap in awhile, I thought I would catch you up on my COVID-19 experience. Right now I live in Maryland, and we are currently under a stay-at-home order. Luckily, I work for an essential business and am still able to go into the office everyday. This has definitely kept me in a routine, and the stress of income hasn’t been an issue thus far.…

Sunday Recap: Giving Yourself Room to Feel

The past few weeks have been more emotional than I have lead myself on to believe. There is a lot inside me that I have pushed down unknowingly. I have been feeling a lot of anger recently. Towards almost everything in my life. What’s frustrating is that I can’t pinpoint the source and I also can’t control it. I went through my work week in Las Vegas and came home…

Sunday Recap: It Doesn’t Have to Be So Serious

If you’re interested in my current situation: I am at the airport, waiting on my delayed flight to Las Vegas, with 5 broken nails and no outlets in site. If that isn’t a metaphor for the past week, I don’t know what is. This week was a weird one for me. I wasn’t sleeping well, and by now we should all know that I am not on my A-game when…

Life Lately: Growth is not Consistent.

Another 5am blog post coming at you. Recently I’ve been a little off. Usually when this happens, I’m falling into a rut. Not sure what causes these ruts for me, but they happen to all of us. Routine feels good until it gets boring. Not having a routine is exhilarating until it gets reckless. It’s all a balancing act. Everyone is different, but my major warning sign that I’m developing…

Feeling Burnt Out

This past week has been tough for me. I was getting stuff done but I couldn’t seem to keep up. I was waking up late, which led to a shortened morning routine. I was not on top of my meals like I have been. I skipped the gym because I needed to make up hours at work. I just couldn’t keep to my schedule. Looking back at the weekend prior,…

cut yourself some slack.

Do you get frustrated with yourself for not doing simple things? I used to be so hard on myself for it. On days where I wasn’t feeling my best or doing my best, I would get so upset. WHY don’t I want to get out of bed? WHY can’t I stop ruminating over this one thing? WHY can’t I keep up? I literally thought that I couldn’t keep up with…

Emotions are not Weakness.

Anxiety has always been my biggest enemy. It comes out of nowhere and it’s truly debilitating. The scary thing about it is that I don’t always know when it’s going to hit me. That lack of control and fear of rejection by the people I love can build up to an overwhelming point where tears are streaming down my face and my only answer to someone’s “why are you crying!?”…

Life Lately: It’s All A Learning Process

I don’t know about you, but I completely missed the memo about your twenties being an emotional fucking roller coaster. I go through periods of time where I feel so on top of the world. Then all of a sudden, it’s as if I’m not doing or being enough. Up until we enter the work force, everything we do is on a timeline. We grow up going to school, doing…

Sleep + Me

One of the most difficult things I’ve dealt with, and occasionally still deal with, in my adult life is getting quality sleep. I’m going to be honest, I haven’t quite cracked the code for why sleep has been such an issue for me, but after talking to some doctors, I’ve learned that our generation in general struggles with sleep. Below is a bit of my journey through my sleep struggles,…

You’re Probably Wondering What Happened to My Blog..

Hi everyone! Long story short, I’m starting to take this whole blogging thing seriously. I started blogging in 2015 truly as a hobby and something for me, but recently I’ve decided to just jump into it all. My website looks a little bland now, I know. But slowly over time it will blossom and develop (any input welcome)! So stick with me. I didn’t want to put off publishing posts…

Airport Anxiety

It’s kind of amazing how doing something that scares you makes you realize so much about yourself. As I was walking around the airport this morning, laughing about how going to the airport is never as scary as I think it is, I realized how much of a perfectionist I am. I’ve never thought of myself as a perfectionist because I’m not really OCD. Yes I know they are two…

Why I’m Not Looking

If you’re in your twenties like me, you’ve probably dealt with the ‘are you seeing or interested in anyone’ questions. We’re in this weird phase of our lives where half our friends are married and half of them are no where close to that. I don’t know, for me it’s just not a priority right now. I feel so much more at peace with myself when I’m alone. Actively looking…

What I’m Grateful for

It’s crazy to think that three years ago I really wasn’t that concerned with my future. Being 25 now, one thought that’s always floating in the back of my head is ‘am I doing enough with my life?’ Being or doing ‘enough’ is especially difficult when you’re not even sure where you want to go in your lifetime. If I’m being honest, I have a million ideas of things that…

Life Lately: You’re Not Alone

Do you ever have those days where everything is perfectly fine then all of a sudden you get this overwhelming feeling of sadness? Like out of fucking no where. Your day is practically over at this point. You can’t pull yourself out of it because it’s so fucking intense and you have no idea why. That’s been life lately. My first real breakdown was last week while I was at…
