My Biggest Fear…

Happy, sad, confused, excited, angry, and scared. As humans we feel it all. Despite feeling it all, we sometimes don’t like to show our emotions or even talk about them. I recently watched a Zoella vlog that opened up a conversation about her greatest fear. I think this is a great topic to bring up….

Life After An Eating Disorder.

*Sensitive post about eating disorders* Of course by “life after an eating disorder,” I mean working everyday to not act on my thoughts. I was thinking the other day how my eating disorder recovery isn’t perfect. There are times where I realize I’m not utilizing everything I learned in treatment. The coping skills can be…

Medication and Mental Health: Is it worth it?

There are two types of people when it comes to mental health. Those who believe in medication and those who don’t. When I go diagnosed with OCD 5 years ago I was against taking medication. The public would always say how it is addictive and wrong so I just grew up to believe it was…

How To Get Motivated In The Morning!

In my past blog  post I wrote about spending all day in bed and not feeling guilty about it. This week I had time to rest, but decided I’m going to put in some extra effort to break ties with my bed. If I’m having an decent health day, these are the things that work best…

Special Effects Hair Dye!

Experimenting with your own hair is probably the most common cure of boredom. I decided to have some fun and dye most of my hair purple. I started this process about a month ago. My favorite hair dye for “out there” colors is Special Effects. It is long lasting and you don’t have to use…

Growing Up As An Athlete.

Sometimes as a kid you get endless opportunities to try new things. It could be within your imagination or simply your parents enrolling you in extracurricular activities. When I was 4 years old I was watching my sister in her gymnastics class and begged my mom to let me join. My coach didn’t want me…

Guilt from being tired.

Today was just one of those days for me. I was exhausted for a majority of the day and found it tough to get out of bed. I started feeling guilt for wasting my day away and not getting much done. The fact is, I have a health condition that causes me to be tired…

MOVING OUT… April Plans!

About 3 years ago I decided I wanted to move to a lovely town called Nashville. After that, a lot of life got in the way. Last year I made it a goal that I would move for sure in the upcoming year. That bring me to today. In two months I will actually be…

Not being confined.

The reality is you don’t choose where or what situation to be born into. A lot of the times we think we need to be a certain way because of the way we were brought up. It’s great that there are so many different types of people and places in the world. What isn’t great…

Time by yourself.

Right now I am in Seattle, Washington. Sitting at a park, near the water, watching a sunset…on my own. I flew here for a pretty awesome cause I will talk about in a later blog post. It is my first time here in Seattle. The last time I traveled by myself I went to Nashville…

What they should teach you in school.

The other day I was a bit frustrated because of my ADD. I guess the frustration comes from thinking I’m dumb if I can’t figure something out or how to communicate things correctly. When your mind is all over the place and feels like it’s about to explode it’s quite an annoying situation. I got…

An Invisible Illness.

Dysautonomia: An umbrella term used to describe several different medical conditions that cause a malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System. Almost two years ago I noticed a big change in my health. The smallest everyday things became the hardest. Going up the stairs in my house was exhausting and standing up made everything around me…

What I like to collect when traveling.

Happy Friday Everyone! (actually i work a 12 hour day on Saturdays so Fridays aren’t so happy). Anyways, I thought I would continue the travel theme this week and share something that I make sure to get on every trip. It’s always nice certain things that will remind you of a great time. Traveling can…
