Hey friends!

And happy Monday to all of you US folks. Since it is Monday I thought I would pop in with a bit of Monday motivation to help you make today awesome. If it’s Tuesday where you live (like it is down here) then let’s be real, you need this just as much as the others because any day that isn’t Friday is hard work. If you  know me at all then you know I love a good inspirational quote. I make no apologies for being totally basic and smattering them all over my Pinterest, in my Instagram captions and on my bathroom mirror.

Real talk: The greatest life lesson I’ve learnt so far

Hey friends!

I’m currently jamming to Taylor Swift re-living my teen years (sans acne and awkwardness) and it is such a good time. Listening to this music always brings back memories for me and with that comes all the feels. To think how much I’ve experienced since I first heard these songs. To remember how far I’ve come, how much I’ve grown…and all the lessons I’ve learnt over the years. It makes me get a little teary. God’s been so good you guys.  So today I wanna jump into a little bit of #realtalk about one of the greatest life lessons I’ve learnt so far.

How to find rest if you are anxious all the time

Hey friends!

Probably one of my biggest flaws is how highly strung and anxious I am. I have absolutely, positively zero chill. It doesn’t take much to get my stomach in knots and my knees a’ knocking. And the worst thing is, my anxiety rears it’s ugly little head in such absurdly normal situations. Like trying to sit down on the bus before it starts moving again. Or trying to figure out when to make eye contact with the stranger that I’m walking towards. Or as I’m checking for the billionth time that I haven’t left my keys behind on my dresser.

The week in review

Hey friends!

This has been quite a week. To be honest I’m still not recovered from the Bachelorette finale which was just so depressing. I was Team Peter all the way and it has upset me way more than it should that she picked Bryan. This is my problem: I get way too invested in TV shows. It feels like my heart gets broken, like I’m the one who’s getting rejected every time. And then I feel all mopey and depressed and in need of ice cream to soothe the heartbreak that someone’s feeling. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen Ross and Rachel break up…it still kills me (because he’s her lobster obviously!)

Are you sick of hustling hard and getting nowhere?

hustling-hard

Hey friends!

Wanna know a little secret? I’m currently writing this post in my biology lab, on the back of my lab manual, in pencil so I can erase it before I hand my worksheet in later. I know, I know, I’m the worst student ever but this little confession ties in perfectly with today’s post. See, I’ve realized something recently which is this: I have a real issue with letting myself slow down. I’ve been hustling hard and it’s wearing me down.

13 MORE small adulting wins you should be celebrating

Hey friends!

You know what I think? I think we don’t give ourselves enough credit for all the little things we accomplish each day. I think we tend to be a little too hard on ourselves. Sure we might not have gone for a run (again) or maybe we didn’t get around to taking out the trash but hey, we got out of bed and gave it our best and I think that’s a win in and of itself.

The week in review

Hey friends!

Do you feel like you just blinked and suddenly it’s August or is it just me? How did this happen? I don’t know, but I’m pretty excited about it. Because springtime is just around the corner down here. We went to the park the other day and there were two lambs frolicking around and I have definitely seen a few buds popping up on the trees. My absolute favourite flowers are daffodils which makes springtime especially joyful for me because they crop up everywhere like beacons of hope that the winter chill is coming to an end. Ah isn’t it so good to be alive?

Learning to speak the five love languages

Hi friends!

If you’ve been around here for a little while then you know that I’m a bit of a romantic. I’m an absolute sucker for all things love and sweetness and I proudly wear my heart on my sleeve. So yeah I’m kinda jazzed for today’s blog post. Today we are talking about love (ooh la la) but less of the cheesy heart-shaped balloons and rose petals stuff and more on how to love people better.

So for all of you single senoritas out there, fear not, this still totally 100% applies to you. Love comes in all sorts of ways, shapes and forms- be it romantic, or platonic- and we all need a little help being better at showing it to those around us. Enter in the five love languages…

6 relationship red flags to watch out for

relationship-red-flags

Hey friends!

People are so complicated right? Every person you meet is so incredibly unique and whilst that is a wonderful thing (because a billion clones would be rather dull) it also makes life hella confusing. You never know if someone will be offended by the things you say or will think you’re a hoot.

And when it comes to relationships…well that’s a whole other ball game. No matter how many people you ask for advice, you’ll get all sorts of different opinions. Because people are so different there is no one size fits all answer when it comes to love. But there ARE a whole bunch of red flags to look out for that are warning signs that the relationship you are pursuing is no good. In which case you should run as fast as your cute, tan boots will allow you.

The week in review

Hey friends!

Well this week has flown on by, I almost feel dizzy. It was our first week back and with classes in full swing I couldn’t stay in denial very long. Somehow I managed to schedule something almost every day this week which was fun and all but also super exhausting. Can I be a total diva for a sec and say that after one week back that I already need a holiday? This weekend is also gonna be a busy one because I’m working and then helping out at the craft fair at church. Apparently, it’s true what they say…ain’t no rest for the wicked (or weary for that matter.)
