I will be honest here, this is a topic I heavily debated posting. There is such a range of feelings for women during this day, that I do not want to upset anyone. But I also want to be honest, and let those who land within my set of emotions know that it is normal and okay.
It’s a crazy time when excitement comes simply from a sunny, warm weekend. But it’s been so rainy and gloomy the last month, that warmth and sun is a BLESSING.
I don’t know if I have made this clear at any point, but I am a dog person. The kind of dog person who cries at the cuteness of a dog. Cries knowing there are dogs who need homes and don’t have families. The kind of dog person who honestly has thought about how to adopt all the dogs. I love meeting new dogs, and always want to have one or three 😉 in my life.
Many of us are really feeling the affects of quarantine, as well as stress and fear that Covid-19 brings. We are living in uncertain times, and it can become difficult to shut it all off. I am no different.
The pactice of self care has really taken off lately, and it’s no secret that I’m a big believer in it! I think it’s really important to put a focus on yourself regularly. We live in a society that almost praises those who wear themselves out. It’s almost like a competition of misery sometimes.
As someone who dealt with a negative body image, and an eating disorder that followed, I feel it’s my responsibility to share how I was able to pull myself out of it for anyone who may need.
So this is going to be more of a recap of my week, than a weekend recap. I just feel this needed a follow up! Remember weeks ago when I made a whole post on how I’m an exceeds expectations kind of girl, and that it’s okay to not want to go above and beyondContinue reading “Weekend Recap: Exceeds Expectations”
It seems my weekends have two repeatable themes. Do nothing but sit on the couch all day and night, or find myself at a concert. This weekend I managed to do both pretty flawlessly.
Think about how excited you get when you start a new endeavor, or finally make a move on a goal you have been dreaming about. If the first person you go to for support, or encouragement tells you your idea won’t work, or that it’s too difficult to accomplish, how are you going to feel?
Do you ever get what feels like a great idea, and the immediately think, “I don’t have time”, or “Nah I probably can’t do that”.
