What does a plant need to grow? It needs an environment that it can thrive in and to be taken care of, right? If the plant starts to outgrow the environment, you put it in a place that is better fit.

By reading the title of this you probably know whether it applies to you or not. I have been reading a lot the past few weeks (mostly blog posts but books too!!) and by the looks of it, I know that many of you know what I’m talking about. There are very few things that feel worse than when your mind is going a million places at once and not knowing why or where it came from. It’s even more intense if you’re someone that typically feels calm and collected. You aren’t used to being shaken up all the time. Your fight or flight reaction doesn’t know what to do, you stay calm but your head feels crazed, probably more than you want to admit to.

You think that days can only get so bad but then life shows you that it can get worse. You wonder constantly what you did to deserve this, and you never get any answers.

For a lot of us it feels like life is always against us, when one thing gets resolved another problem comes up. We mind our own business but problems always seem to find their way into our lives. (more…)
I have realized lately that fear has occupied so much of my life for so long and in many ways I didn’t even realize it. I’ve always been so hesitant to change anything in my life or to start anything new even if it was something I really wanted to do because I would always be scared that I would fail or I would care too much about what other people would think.

Considering it’s the last day of the year I think now would be a good time to reflect on 2017. This year pushed me to my limits emotionally and mentally, I went through and overcame things I didn’t think I would ever have to. But this year was also the best year I’ve had so far. This year I started caring about myself and realized that I have a lot more control over my life than I thought I did. Whether 2017 was your year or not, I want to share some things I learned that I hope will help start your year off
