    How much inspiration is too much?

    Let me start off by saying I am one of those people who constantly look for inspiration. I read and share the quotes, I scroll through Pinterest, I gravitate towards self-help books and I am a total sucker for an inspirational real life story. I have been in a bit of a funk recently, I’ve had no desire to write or do anything other than what is absolutely necessary. The creative juice is nonexistent and I feel flat. The thing is, I know part of the reason for feeling flat is because I haven’t been doing much so that has been quite a cycle to navigate. So I turned to…

    The Life Changing Magic of putting my phone down

    Maybe a bit of an exaggeration with that title but I’ve got your attention now right? Let me start by saying that I am a social media addict. I spend hours online aimlessly scrolling. Taking in loads of information – sometimes helpful and inspiring and sometimes useless. Either way, it is hours of time spent on something that I enjoy, sure. But what about the other things I enjoy? And what about real life? One Sunday afternoon, it was a day like any other. Sunny outside, the kind of winter sun that gives you the chills because it just feels so good when it hits your skin.

Fortunately I now know who I am and I had to go through those years to get to where I am now. So here are the lessons that I feel are worth mentioning…

    Practicing Self-Care Online

    The idea of self-care has risen in popularity and rightfully so because it is important. We run around like headless chickens most of the time so we need to look after ourselves and our mental health. I think many of us do practice self-care in real life but are we doing it online? The online world has become a large part of our lives and we spend more time on there than we realise because we often associate being online with being glued to social media but being online means reading articles or taking quizzes, doing research or shopping. What you are consuming online can have an effect on you…

    TwentyMINEteen

    I know, I know, it’s been a little quiet around here and I am not going to bore you with the usual reasons. It’s a new year and honestly I am not going to promise to be better because life happens and sometimes I just don’t feel like writing but I am going to be treating the blog more like an online journal rather than a place of perfection because that holds me back too much. 2018 was an incredible year of growth for me, I would even go as far as to say it was one of my favourite years for this reason alone. I am not entirely sure…
