I love journaling, its something that I starting doing just a couple months back and has really helped me with getting things out that are on my mind. Growing up writing was something I loved doing, it was my way of expressing my feelings and not feeling trapped with them inside my head, I wrote songs, poems, stories etc. it was my passion but I found that I drifted away from it and was having the most difficult time getting back into it. I started my blog and was very passionate about writing again but would find myself in a writer’s block over and over again and it wasn’t until I started journaling that I started to get that passion and flow back.
Last week my coach had given me a bunch of journaling prompts to keep me on track with writing and expressing my self through words. One of those prompts was to write a letter to someone that is no longer here today and tell them how you feel and what you wish you could tell them..This one hit me hard and of course, I chose my dad as the timing could not have been more perfect. I experienced feelings I haven’t for a while or even possible feelings I just never let go, I cried I laughed and I smiled It felt like a weight on my shoulders was lifted that I didn’t even know was there. So, of course, I wanted to share it with you! this was such a powerful feeling to me and after 13 years I feel a connection that he never left, I feel a connection that he is looking over me and I would start to see little reminders that he was still there. I highly recommend trying out this journal prompt for yourself but just be ready to really go through some emotions and release a lot of feelings.

I wanted to share a little of my story and let you get to know me a little more on a personal level. With some new faces around the blog, I thought now would be the perfect time to open up.

It became a passion to share my story with others in the hope it could help or impact someone else in any way. I wanted it to be a place of realness and a place anyone could come and feel safe and inspired. Continue reading “Then And Now”
I started to practice daily gratitude about one month ago. I never thought when I started that it would be so rewarding and impact my life the way it has.
I was living in a negative bubble, I was very good at hiding this most of the time but I was a miserable person. I was miserable with the fact I didn’t have the things I wanted in life, I didn’t have a nice couch, didn’t have the perfect apartment or the all-around the life that I wanted.
I would wake up every morning unhappy with no excitement towards my day, I would count down the hours until I could crawl back into bed and snuggle in my blankets. My anxiety and depression had full control over me and I was good at overcoming it for short periods of time but had no idea how to overcome this fully and truly move on with my life and live my best life.

I recently was gifted a package from Neostrata and Influencer, It came with their new pure hyaluronic Acid Biocellulose sheet mask a travel size of their PHA facial cleanser and Bionic face cream. This came at the perfect time for me as I had just run out of my daily moisturizer and knew I wasn’t going to be able to pick a new one up for at least a week.
To truly test out the products I only used the face cleanser and cream for the week and ended off with the face mask. Continue reading “A True Review On Trying Something New- Neostrata”

After spending the last week in a funk I wanted to share easy steps that help me snap out of I and brought up my motivation to keep pushing forward. Due to old lifestyle choices, depression falls easily for me so It’s very important I stay on a routine and follow a healthy lifestyle otherwise the anxiety increases and it can make it extremely difficult to think clearly. Anxiety is when you feel you need to have everything figured out at once and depression is when the reality sets in that its not going to happen, the mixture of both are so strong that they start to control your every move so these steps are to be done one step at a time and as you start to practice each one you will see how they all start to fall in to place and work together. I can say this strongly as each time I drink into a funk I practice these steps and jump back to that happy lifestyle. Life is a learning curve, it’s ok not to have it all together at times, you’re not alone sometimes we all need an extra push, so for the next time that you do here are my 5 ways to Staying Motivated: Continue reading “5 Ways To Stay Motivated.”
