We are almost 4 months into 2019 (come through ARIES SEASON, my fiery self is ready to shine) and I have been slowly working towards my biggest goal of this year: to be more in control. Let me start off by saying this- I do not define being “in control” as having it together 24/7. Being “in control” doesn’t mean everything is rainbows and butterflies … Continue reading 5 Positive Mental Health Habits to Adopt
Only those who’ve experienced suicidal thoughts will understand. Perhaps you’re like me. You’ve been on the “upswing” for quite awhile now. Things in your life seem to be going well.

It’s been a little while since I’ve written and I am randomly feeling inspired this morning. I just wanted to reach out to any of my followers or readers who may be feeling hopeless or bleak. Yesterday was World Suicide Prevention Day 2018 and this weighs heavy on my heart. I lost my grandfather to suicide, and depression runs rampant among my family.

Earlier this week- Monday morning, to be exact- I came to a pivotal realization. I’ve been struggling with how others treat me, and I’ve allowed myself to be consumed emotionally by situations that are completely out of my control. I woke up Monday morning at 3:45 a.m. and was unable to fall back to sleep due to crippling stress and what ultimately turned into a … Continue reading It really is the little things.

Work has been difficult and things are constantly … Continue reading Mental Health Awareness Month.
Just to set the scene: it was around 6:00 pm, I had been alone all day (no, I’m not a pathetic lazy hermit, I’m just waiting to hear about a job offer, ok?!), and I was eagerly awaiting my plans for the night. Being 2,000 miles from home has been rough as hell, but thankfully, my boyfriend helped introduce me to a girl from his … Continue reading Putting yourself out there is terrifying- but it’s worth it.
I have been so busy the last few days that I haven’t written a single blog post. And these usually only take me 15-20 minutes to write.. I just let the words flow, rarely ever edit them, and just post from the heart. I have been pushing myself so hard to be happy out here in California, to make friends, to find a job, to … Continue reading It’s been a minute.
Today I decided to take charge of my happiness despite loneliness. I am still adjusting to being away from home, not being able to visit my family and childhood home whenever I want, and not being steps away from my best friend’s and roommates at all times. It’s Monday, Austin is off at work (which hopefully I will be doing soon, finger’s crossed I receive … Continue reading Little victories.
