Real Love...Not the Fake-y Crap

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

This might just be the article you need to read to find the love of your life: 

I have noticed, by being that observant person that constantly convinces people to talk about their feelings, that there is one general problem we all have when trying to find The One. Believe me, I am just as guilty as the next person for having this train of thought...but as soon as it is changed, it seems that we all seem to stumble into our One.

Anxiety Combat - Be a Warrior not a Worrier

Friday, January 19, 2018

I don't know about you, but I have been under the impression that "we all have our days"...if not, then my friends must just be trying to make me feel better when I temporarily lose my mind. This isn't me being insensitive, but me trying to shed some sort of humourous light on my diagnosed anxiety disorder. You might notice - in other blog posts - I have a tendency to refer to myself as crazy, as I have accepted the fact that I have a chemical imbalance that may make me seem that way to others.

I was terrified of my, now, husband finding out I am a little far from "normal". The idea of him being around to witness one of my unforgettable panic attacks, was one I dreaded. And when it was terrible! The poor guy had no idea how to calm me down... It has been five years, and quite a few sleepless nights since he witnessed one of my panic attacks for the first time. And let me tell you, he has become unbelievably helpful when my anxiety becomes too much for my brain to handle.

Move Mountains W/ Random Acts of Kindness

Thursday, January 18, 2018

WARNING - Rant with a good purpose below:

Since when is simply doing something nice for someone else supposed to be based on whether or not they have done something just as nice for you? It seems like I have recently heard the most bull**** reason not to give someone a gift, or just do something nice to remind people they are loved...the reason: "Well they didn't do [whatever it is] for me".

I am sorry, but what the H E Double Hockey Sticks?! The thought is just to be just because the person in question never randomly thought to bring you a coffee, means you shouldn't do it for them? Just because one of your friends never offered to watch your kids for a night, you aren't going to offer to watch theirs? Since when did the whole world become so damn cynical?! I have actually heard people turn down other people's offers because they don't want to be expected to do the same thing for them in the future.

Who are you Trying to Impress?

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Who are you trying to impress? A question I am constantly hearing...not necessarily geared toward me, but anyone who puts an effort into getting ready to run some standard errands. This is a turn of phrase that is, in my opinion, constantly overused.

What if the answer is "myself"? What if I am simply trying to impress myself? What if I want to spend time getting ready so that when I walk by a mirror or see my reflection in the supermarket cooler doors (sounds incredibly vain, I know) I can stand up a little straighter. Here's the deal, I don't know a single person that will not look at themselves in a mirror, in passing. We are human, we were literally created to be flawed. Some would say needing to feel a sense of confidence is a flaw, but we all need it! Self confidence is an incredibly important attribute that we humans need to succeed and thrive in this life.

TimesUp - My Take on Feminism

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

I am a feminist. Not the type of feminist that comes to most peoples minds. I do not move to extreme measures of making my message heard in ways that only make people question me more. Don't get me wrong, I am all for feminism and working to make the world see women and men as equals. However, I am not someone who believes that in order to make my point, I need to stand outside the state capital bare-breasted, burning my bra, and spitting at men. I will, however, talk to you all day about women's rights throughout history (with a heavy focus on the women's suffrage movement...because its my favorite), and how I believe we can continue to work together to make women heard.

Stomp Your Inner Mean Girl...You are ENOUGH!

Saturday, January 6, 2018

You are enough.

I am constantly battling my inner mean girl. The girl who tells me I am not enough. I've been battling this mean girl for a very long time. When I was in high school, I let her take control of me. I let her convince me that the only way for me to be enough was to stop eating. She convinced me that would solve all of my problems.

What's In Your Cup?

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

I recently discovered an amazing Facebook groups for Boss Babes in Colorado. Since being accepted to the group, I have found some amazing inspiration shared among the group. I came across a post, that sounds like it has been circulating throughout Facebook, and it really resonated with me.
This has been copied from a member of The Denver Boss Babe Collective: 
"You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. 
Why did you spill the coffee? 
'Well because someone bumped into me, of course!'
Wrong answer. 

New Year, New Modest, Yet Sexy Wardrobe

Monday, January 1, 2018

For those of you that don't know, I am a young married woman. I have a love for all things beautiful, and am currently in the middle of trying to update my wardrobe. Since getting married, there has been this weird desire of mine to completely transform my closet. I have this urge to own my body in a modest way. Pre-wedding I was all about wanting to look sexy and own my body, I loved the idea of trying to find sexy, low cut pieces that are typically owned by young 20 somethings. ~My friend Kelsey is a boss at doing just this~. The idea of owning sexy pieces and showing myself off was empowering to me. Since getting married though, I still want to feel empowered without showing too much skin.
