I have been learning the art of self-motivation lately. Don’t Stop Now is not only the name of my book, but also something I remind myself to do every day. Life is hard. Don’t stop now. Work is stressful. Don’t stop now. Overcoming anxiety? Yeah, don’t stop now with that one either.
When things get hard and you want to give up, don’t stop. You’ve come a long way, I know it.
I have three main categories on my blog: Faith, Anxiety, and Life in General. At different points in my blog, I have written significantly about different categories. For example, a lot of my early posts revolve around Christianity and singleness. A while later, I focus on dating and my emetophobia. Lately, if you’ve noticed, I have written almost exclusively about anxiety. Continue reading “Life in General”
You ever hear a song that really hits you? It might not even have anything to do with what you’re feeling, but you hang onto a lyric or two and you feel like it was written just for you? That’s how I feel about these lyrics from Wolves by Big Wreck. Which, by the way, is an awesome song. If you haven’t heard the song before, check it out below.
This should probably be titled “I Had A Bad Week,” but that just doesn’t sound as good. Plus, today was like, extra bad compared to the others. I also originally wanted to title it “I Had a Bad Day” (and yes, now that song is stuck in my head)
but apparently, I already have a post titled I Had a Bad Day (and if I’m being honest, that’s one of my personal favourite posts, so you should definitely check it out). Continue reading “Another Bad Day – But That’s Okay”
A few weeks ago, I finally set up a contact page. I’ve wanted to connect with other anxiety/mental health bloggers for a while to hopefully begin some sweet collaborations and thought this was the best way to do it. Well, I received my very first spam email the other day. And instead of immediately trashing it, I read it. Continue reading “Lame Ducks”
I often talk about how even good change is still change – and how hard that is on someone who hates change. For example, my husband and I recently moved in with my parents, which ended up being very good change…but it was still hard. Now I’ve been faced with something new; a non-change that…still feels like change. Continue reading “No Change Is…Still Change, Apparently?”
Four long years ago, I wrote a post called “What Are You Going To Do With That?” I had just finished my second year of university, and knew I still had a long road ahead (I did some of my degree part-time).
If you don’t feel like reading that post, let me sum it up. I was frustrated with people constantly asking me what I was going to do with my degree (a bachelor of arts) for two reasons. Continue reading ““What Did You Do With That?””
Right now, things are going pretty well. (Although if you know me at all, you’ll know how terrifying that is for me to say). My husband Jefferson and I have been living (and doing well) in my parent’s basement for almost two months now, we are both thriving in our workplaces, and I finally feel like I have a stable community of people who care for me. But still, I feel…stuck. Continue reading “Stuck”
So as you may have read in some of my earlier posts, my husband is currently looking for a new ministry position. This has meant lots and lots of visiting new churches and services to get a feel for the places he’s applied to. A few weeks ago, we went to one of these churches and I was met with a pleasant surprise. Continue reading “The Woman Who Preached”
Welcome to my latest vent post. If you’re not up for some mid-twenties angst, you should probably just skip this one. Continue reading “5 Things People Should Just Stop Saying (to me and anyone else)”
