What are you thankful for?

A small list of the things I am truly, madly, (and) deeply thankful for:

*in no specific order*
  1. Life--the capability to breathe.
  2. The needs I have--the roof over my head, my loving family, food piled high on my plate.
  3. My friends--you, my fabulous reader, I am thankful for.
  4. Words--sometimes they are the only thing I can turn to.
  5. One Direction--...they make me happy.
  6. Books--oh those beautiful escape routes.
  7. Past experiences--though they haven't all been pleasant, those experiences have made me who I am today.
  8. Music--another escape.
  9. Purpose--I'm still looking for it. But when I find it, I know I'll be thankful for it.
  10. Tumblr--Tumblr knows what's happenin'.
  11. Those songs that explain my current situation--the lyrics seem to tend my wounds.
  12. Car rides with the windows down--and when I have sunglasses on...I feel like I'm in a music video.
  13. Surgery--because without it, my dad wouldn't be here.
  14. Josh Hutcherson--his face is beautiful. And so are his words.
  15. Movies--with popcorn, blankets, and the sun well below the horizon. The whole shebang.
  16. Limitations--I can't really explain this one.
  17. "Pedophilic texters"--I can't explain this one either.
  18. Singing (off key)--because singing helps too.
  19. Dancing in the kitchen--sway those hips.
  20. "You're not alone."--...I'm not?
  21. Television--it's quite a blessing.
  22. Memories--the good and the bad.
  23. Slipping back and realizing I'm really ahead--this is...non-explainable too.
  24. Laughter--it's always great when someone else's laughter is ringing in your ears.
  25. Mackenzie--because without you, I know I wouldn't be where I am today.

Thank you for reading. <3

Merry Thanksgiving.

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?

Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…

Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things balanced on your plate. Most of the time, you don’t know where to start.
