***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
***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.

Hey Yinz Guys & Happy Friday! We made it through yet another week, and can you believe it’s already November? Like I swear January was just last week. So with this new month comes new routines and new goals, and also time to start saving and shopping for Christmas next month. My sister also celebrates her 30th birthday this month and I will be traveling to see her in Philly so I need to save all my coins and monies for all the upcoming spending I will be doing this month and next. Continue reading “No New Makeup November…”
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. Continue reading “November: A New Routine Is Coming…”
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

- 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
****TRIGGER WARNING: I touch on a really personal subject dealing with my mental being and mental health. I briefly talk about suicide and suicidal thoughts. If that is something that may trigger you in any type of way I advise not to read this post.****
Hey Yinz Guys,
Yes…I know, I know…I once again went MIA. But this time it wasn’t just due to a lack of inspiration, and since I like to keep it real on here…basically after ending a fairly new “situationship” with someone I had grown rather attached to and cared about, I had what one would call a mental breakdown and checked myself into the local psychiatric hospital. WHOA WHOA WHOA…wait…WHAT? Yes…I checked myself in after a long night of fighting off suicidal thoughts. Thankfully due to my background in the medical field for the past 4 years or so, I knew the thoughts that I was having weren’t ok and I knew that I needed to seek professional help. So the morning of April 13th, 2017 I checked myself into my former workplace and then spent the next 2 days in a mental hospital. I don’t want to get too much into all of that just yet because honestly, I feel that the whole experience deserves a dedicated post on its own…and right now I just want to keep this post upbeat and just a life update. I do want to make it clear that it wasn’t being dropped that set me on such a downward spiral, more just so the straw that broke the camels back. BUT I PROMISE I WILL DIVE MUCH DEEPER INTO EVERYTHING AND WILL BE BLOGGING ABOUT THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE REALLY SOON. Continue reading “I’m Back…Again (Update Part 1)”
Hey Yinz Guys & Happy Monday! How was your weekend…my weekend wasn’t too exciting, but I did start my second job which is a part-time retail gig. Which I guess is exciting because that means I’ll have some extra income coming real soon. Other then that I spent it at home trying to rest up for this week. I mentioned on Friday that for the next few weeks I will be sharing my 2017 goals for #MotivationalMondays. I guess it like a little blogging mini series lol, so today I’m going to start off with my “Personal Goals for 2017”. These goals will actually fall into my more specific goals but this just sums up some of the most important goals from all the categories. Continue reading “Goals For My 32nd Year…”
Hey Yinz Guys & Good Morning! And if you guess by the tile of this post…today is my 32nd birthday. Yup you read that right, I’m an old lady at 32 lol. I swear I just turned 25 last year..or at least I feel like I did lol. This year my birthday is going to be EXTRA lowkey. I’m actually at work due to my coworker being on vacation. I did celebrate a little bit over the weekend. My cousins 30th birthday was this weekend as well and his wife set up an surprise birthday party for him. So I spent Saturday with friends & family celebrating his birthday.

This morning, I had a text conversation with my sister and it went a little something like this…
Sister: Good Morning
Me: I was hoping I crashed into a ditch this morning
Sister: OMG I’m cracking up!!! Don’t say that!!!
Me: I really was:
Me: I was also trying to be positive as well
Me: Like at least I have a job
Sister: True! I have to remind myself of that too.
Sister: I also have a problem with thinking I wish I had this and that but I need to be happy with what I have. Continue reading “I’m No Positive Patty…”
Hey Yinz Guys & Happy Friday…YAY WE MADE IT! 2nd week in 2017 is down for the count, and so how are you all feeling? I hope you’re still sticking to your new year resolutions, and if you’ve fallen off…that’s ok, you can always pick back up where you left off at and start over. So for me one of my 2017 resolutions was to start reading for pleasure again. You may not know, but I’m what I like to call an on again/off again college student. I for the most part pay for my own schooling, and I attend CCAC which is the community college here in Pittsburgh, I didn’t attend last year due to some financial difficulties but I will be back in for the 2017 Fall Semester coming up. So for the most part, the last few books I have read have been for school.
