I do not need to explain why emotional overwhelm has been at an all-time high lately. The news is terrifying, yet I can’t seem to keep my eyes off of it. I’m worried about every person that I care about, yet I can’t do anything to protect them. I planned to write about overwhelm even before the coronavirus outbreak, but I’m honestly glad that I waited because it’s more relevant now than ever. We’ve all been there. There are a couple of ways to deal with overwhelm: make it worse, or you can make it easier. (more…)
Blogger burnout, work burnout, school burnout, people burnout, whatever it is we’ve all been there. It’s when you’re exhausted, uninspired and maybe considering quitting. If you’re reading this hoping I have a secret that will guarantee that you’ll always be inspired and never feel burnt out again, I don’t, but if there is one feel free to let me in on it. In the meantime I’m just here to write about what I know and what works for me in hopes that you can apply it to something in your life too.

Most of my life I have always put myself last. Making sure other people were taken care of and happy and have everything they needed or wanted before maybe taking care of myself.
Today is September 10th, by the time I post this it won’t be your birthday anymore, but as I sat down to write I couldn’t keep my mind from going back to you. You would have been 20 years old tomorrow, I can only imagine the man you would be becoming.

Some of them obviously being that you don’t always get what you want, Santa and the Easter Bunny aren’t real, that Justin Bieber is probably never going to love me, and lastly and most importantly was that there is nothing wrong with me. Yeah yeah I know it’s cheesy and it’s redundant but it’s true. There is nothing wrong with you or me and there nothing for us to be so upset at ourselves for. (more…)

You know when life feels like it’s just on repeat? Nothing is new or interesting and the same thoughts going in and out your mind and you’re doing everything on your to-do list but the list repeatedly stays the same. Well, at least for me that has been the feeling lately. I know what I want to achieve but not sure what exactly I’m going to do or what exactly my next move is. I don’t have a map planned out of what to do to reach all the places I want to be. I’ve been stuck on that for some time now, it’s worrisome to not know if each decision is the right one or if each step you take is closer or further from where you’re trying to go.
