So I was reading a random Buzzfeed article the other day and it turns out I may be an empath! Not really the most groundbreaking discovery in the big scheme of things, but hey, it got me thinking. Since I was little, often unwittingly, I’ve known how to take a step back from a situation … More I’m An Emotional Sponge!
Whether you purposely clicked on my blog just now, or whether you fell down a rabbit hole and ended up here, or even if you’re just scrolling around as a means of procrastination or out of sheer boredom…I just want to say thank you. It’s a great feeling to know that whenever I get a … More I’d Just Like To Thank…You!
I’m not usually one to worry or stress, but considering the word “pandemic” is basically just “panic” with a few extra letters thrown in for good measure, it’s hard not to feel a bit on edge right now. It’s the uncertainty that’s scary. I’ve been instructed to work from home “for the foreseeable future.” But … More Don’t Panic, It’s Only A Pandemic

Sometimes I wonder, whenever I curse myself and lament the annoying tendency that I have to “overthink”, have I actually been overthinking, or have I simply been thinking… Rarely are my thoughts ever obsessive or irrational (well at least they don’t appear to be in my mind!).

So in an act of kindness, Lisa writes him one. “You choo, choo, choose me?” My heart melts whenever … More A Consumerist Ploy Or A Day Of Love?
So it’s December 31st 2019, aka time to get reflective! This year has honestly flown by for me; I know, I know people always say that, but I genuinely mean it! 2018 on the other hand, did not fly by. It was a very “meh” kind of year for me, nothing particularly bad happened, but … More The Obligatory New Year’s Eve Post
I want to make a difference in this world, however minute it may be. Whether it’s making someone feel loved, or understood, or inspired, even just for a split second, my entire existence will feel like it was worth it. I’m not money-driven, never have been. Material wealth comes and goes. But if I’m fortunate … More I Was Here
Random thought of the morning: we get stressed and unhappy when the fantasy in our minds doesn’t align with our reality. In our day-to-day lives we hold so many expectations and often don’t allow for any wiggle space, everything must happen exactly how we want it to, when exactly we want it to.

My mind is not my friend. It tells me to skip my workout today, I’ve been good all week, why over exert myself? It tells me to start applying for jobs tomorrow, there’s no real urgency today. It tells me to cancel plans, I deserve some me-time. It tells me to ignore the sink full … More My Mind Is Not My Friend
