Dear January, I Hate You

January, I hate you.

I hate January. Sorry, I just do. January sucks. And it extra sucks in Ontario right now. For the last week, we’ve basically been living in the North Pole. A few days ago it was like -30C. That is not even an exaggeration. Today is only -19 with the windchill, so, you know, it’s feeling pretty balmy now.

Broken Toes, Ear Infections, and 2018

Broken Toes, Ear Infections, and 2018 - Anxiety Blog Post

Everyday Motivation #2

dont stop

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.

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”

Wolves

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?
