Feel Good Friday’s: You Are More Than Your Short Comings

***Good Morning Yinz Guys! This past Monday I introduced one of the many new series I want to bring to this hear blog called “Mental Health Monday” if you haven’t read it yet you can read it here. The second series I want to introduce is what I call “Feel Good Friday’s” where I will share post that are motivational. It may be something I’ve written up myself or a quote I found. Either way, I want to use Friday’s as a way to send good vibes to Yinz Guys so we can start the weekend on a good note. I hope you enjoy.***

You are more than your shortcomings and downfalls. You are more than the negative things people have to say about you and your mistakes. You are more than Your diagnoses and your illness. You are more than your past and who you use to be. You are more than that job you hate, and you are more than the lack of money you have. You are more than your degrees or lack of degrees. You are more than your relationship status and you are more than who you have dated. Continue reading “Feel Good Friday’s: You Are More Than Your Short Comings”

Mental Health Monday: Over-Explaining

Mental Health Monday: Over-Explaining

***This is my first post for a new blog series I will be calling Mental Health Monday where I share my journey to healthier mental health. I hope you not only enjoy these post but take something as well.***

I have a horrible habit of over-explaining and trying to force people to understand what I’m trying to say. Especially when it comes to the men I’ve dated. So what is I trying to make sure there is no miscommunication or misunderstanding on how I feel, comes off as me being crazy. I’m not sure why or when exactly i started being like this, but recently it was brought to my attention and well I was taken aback at the thought of someone thinking I’m crazy. Now…don’t get wrong I can be very passionate when it comes to my relationships, in the sense, I put my all into it. Which is probably why I find myself over explaining my thoughts and feelings, instead of maybe taking a step back and seeing if that’s what he wants to hear at that moment. I’m sure this stems from my fear of breakup/being dropped like I have been so many times. So I feel like, if he knows exactly how much I care about him or how much something affects me…he’ll then understand and this will all end well. I never take into consideration his feelings or his thoughts or his opinions and not because I think I’m right and he’s wrong…but because I get so scared i just start vomiting at the mouth with my emotions.

Living My Best Life In 2018…

Good Morning Yinz Guys & Happy Tuesday, I wanted to get this post out yesterday, but I wasn’t feeling well and forgot to schedule the post…so you’re getting it today! Can you believe it, we made it through 2017, and here we are already into the 2nd week of the year. I don’t know about yall, but I had some days I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it to 2018. Between hitting a low time due to my depression and anxiety, a few trips to the ER and Trump and his ridiculousness(I mean we”re still not out of the woods with him yet)…2018 seemed like a faraway imaginary land. But I’m here…we’re here…WE MADE IT! I may have entered this year, with fewer friends and few dollars short (thanks, car note, and school loans) but I’m so ready to take this year by storm.

Because I’m Sick…Shit!

***Warning, this was supposed to be an Instagram rant, but it turned out to be a lot longer then I expected and way too much to post on IG. Also, I was hella mad as well.***

So I’m currently laid up in bed…AGAIN due to my Rheumatoid Arthritis which has also blessed me with the recent diagnoses of Iritis AKA Uveitis back in October which caused me to miss multiple days of work. It’s hard to explain to people how one day I can be feeling good, up walking around, looking hella fine and the next day be on what feels like the brink of death, with swollen, inflamed and super painful joints. And because just the day before you looked amazing it’s hard for people to understand why you look and feel like death today. Continue reading “Because I’m Sick…Shit!”

What My Depression & Anxiety Looks Like…

So…I’m finally sitting down and starting this blog post. Who knew it would be this hard to talk about something I’m so open about and living with on a daily basis. But I guess that’s one-way mental illness seems to work, at least for me that is. It seems to always find a way to make even the simplest task extremely difficult. With this blog post, I wanted to share with you all what my Depression & Anxiety looks like from my point of view. Continue reading “What My Depression & Anxiety Looks Like…”

November: A New Routine Is Coming…

Ayyyye Yinz Guys and Happy November 1st! Yes…I’m ignoring the fact that my last post was in July…so yeah lol! But a lot has been going on with me, and I mean A LOT. From my love life to my personal life to my work life. I now work from home full time, I got a promotion and a nice little raise, my mental health has come leaps and bounds and while my physical health has taken a turn for the worse(no I’m not dying thankfully) I’m still here thoting and bopping. And speaking of thoting my love life…it’ still nonexistent. But I will hit on all these topics in their own blog post later this month, I promise.

Sole Patches Review…

Good Morning Yinz Guys, BLOOP BLOOP BLOOP…I hope you guys are already having a productive morning, cause I sure am. We’re grinding through yet another work week, so for me, that means another week of dressing up in business casual attire, and sometimes wearing dress shoes that can be little problematic for my feet. As I’ve mentioned a few times before on my blog, I suffer from what is called Rheumatoid Arthritis, so that means I sometimes experience knee and foot pains when wearing anything that isn’t a sneaker when I’m outside, inside I’m barefoot or wearing my favorite Duke University slippers. So for me, my works business casual dress/dress shoe attire requirements can sometimes cause an issue, even flats can be a problem. Thankfully I was given the chance to review Sole Patches in partnership with BrandBacker, and the opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. This year I wanted to step up my dress game at work so that would mean not just wearing ugly but comfortable flats. Continue reading “Sole Patches Review…”

All Summer 17…

Hey Yinz Guys, and Happy Wednesday! So we’ve once again made it to the end of another work week, and if you’re lucky like I am, its Pay Day too. So this friday I wanted to touch on my Summer 2017 Goals. Recently I’ve been so determined to make a ton of lifestyle changes, so I figured writing them down and sharing them on here would how keep me motivated and accountable. So here’s a list of my Summer 17 Goals. These are in no particular order.

  • Go to the gym at least 3x a week
  • Drink more water
  • Get a personal trainer
  • Become a better cook
  • Go back to school
  • New job
  • Save at least $500 dollars by the end of the summer
  • Get my passport(yes I know I’m slacking)
  • Post at least 2x a week on my blog
  • Wake up at 6am every morning on the weekdays and 8m on the weekends
  • Rad at least 3 books this summer
  • Visit Lake Erie at least twice this summer
  • Visit family in Florida
  • Visit DC
  • Visit Philly
  • Make it to at least one music festival
  • Take my medication everyday
  • Journal more
  • Write in my prayer journal twice a day(once in the morning and once at night)
  • Read 1 bible verse a day
  • Make it to at least one Steelers preseason game
  • Take one yoga class a week

So that’s it for my Summer 2017 Goals. So far I’ve been doing really well with making it to the gym and drinking more water. I’ll be looking into getting a personal trainer next month and I’ll be headed to the library this weekend to pick up some new books. So what about you, what are some of your summer goals for this year. I would love to read them in the comment section below, I may even borrow some of them for my own lol. As always, thank you so much for the support.

Peace Yinz Guys
