My Experience in Therapy

My Experience in Therapy

I am going to try to be as transparent as possible in this post, however, I am not at a place where I can be very explicit. I hope I can be as helpful as possible to those of you contemplating therapy and for those of you who just want to know what it’s like, keep on reading! 

Reaching the point where I would book my first therapy session was extremely difficult. Therapy in itself isn’t really a taboo topic, but somehow when the conversation morphs into *you* needing therapy, it feels awkward. Continue reading “My Experience in Therapy”

While in Dallas,TX: 4 Vegan-Friendly Eateries You Need to Try

While in Dallas,TX: 4 Vegan-Friendly Eateries You Need to Try

It wasn’t until I came back from Dallas last Thursday evening that I realized the only pictures of the trip I shared via social media were of food and food places. I figured that I should probably disclose on the blog that I did not solely visit Dallas for the food… even though that still would’ve made an awesome trip considering the restaurants we found!

We adventured to a few really neat places while in the area, but I wanted to share all of that in another post. This post is all about the amazing vegan food we got to try during our trip! If you are ever in Dallas, be sure to check out these places. You won’t be disappointed! Continue reading “While in Dallas,TX: 4 Vegan-Friendly Eateries You Need to Try”

The Easiest Way to Trivialize Wisdom

The Easiest Way to Trivialize Wisdom

As I am sure many of you have heard by now, on January 2nd, Logan Paul (a popular YouTuber for those who may not recognize the name) received widespread backlash about a video he posted in which he filmed a corpse hanging from a noose while exploring Japan’s Aokigahara. The Aokigahara is referred to as the “Sea of Trees” and it’s more popularized nickname, Suicide Forest, since it is the second most popular place in the world for one to commit suicide inContinue reading “The Easiest Way to Trivialize Wisdom”

The Real Reason Why Vision Boards Work (& How to Make Your Own)

The Real Reason Why Vision Boards Work (& How to Make Your Own)

Most people advocate vision boards because of something called the “Law of attraction”. I personally am not a big fan of this law for two reasons: The first being that God’s will is inevitable even in spite of my own (1 Thessalonians 5:18 & Jeremiah 29:11). The second reason is that all good things come from God (James 1:17). I personally cannot accredit the universe for all the great things Jesus does and is doing not just in my life but in the lives of others!

WITH THAT BEING SAID…

How to: Start Listing Your New Year Resolutions

How to: Start Listing Your New Year Resolutions

I don’t know about you, but I’m in a little bit of disbelief that 2018 is merely 8 weeks away. They say time flies when you’re having fun but the fact that the end of the year is practically here has me feeling like I’ve overslept one too many days since January.

Obviously, we still have two major holidays to prepare for. I am the last person to add any major to-do’s to my list during the holiday season, so believe me when I say I am not advocating anything elaborate or ultra time-consuming. However, waiting until the very last week of 2017 to decide what you want to get out of an ENTIRE YEAR doesn’t seem to leave a lot of room for contemplation.   Continue reading “How to: Start Listing Your New Year Resolutions”

What I Wish I Knew Before Adopting a Plant-Based Diet

What I Wish I Knew Before Adopting a Plant-Based Diet

When I decided to go plant-based, I planned on quitting meat products cold turkey. I am typically really good about maintaining self-control so even if I miss a certain meal, I can refuse to partake and be just fine if it’s what I’ve made up my mind to do. When I actually went plant-based however, there were a few key things I feel that I would have handled differently had I known about them prior to making the switch.

That brings me to this post! If you are planning on eating a plant-based diet or even just thinking about it, this is my little letter to you! It may be able to better prepare you for what is to come and make your transition just a tad bit smoother. Continue reading “What I Wish I Knew Before Adopting a Plant-Based Diet”

Learning to Be Alone

Learning to Be Alone

Often times life throws us curve balls. We can be skipping along one path holding the hand of a dearly loved friend or group of friends and all of a sudden find that we are at a fork in the road. To make matters worse, the road directly ahead of you is only wide enough for one person to walk on… which means that you have to walk alone. Continue reading “Learning to Be Alone”
