Coming Soon To Your Feed

With the end of Christmas and focus change to the upcoming new year, I am pleased to be able to announce some of the many new projects I've been working on over the last few months. These have been a long time coming, so let's just get to it. :)


1. Identity change.

TMD has grown to the point where its name no longer suits it. Since my views and goals have changed, it's time to say good-bye to the beloved title Truly. Madly. Deeply. I'm going to miss this name, but it's time to move on. I want this blog to expand and form into the vision of what I truly want it to be.

With this identity change will come a new URL (which has already been established), design (almost done!) and content upgrade - which leads us to the next point.

2. New content.

My content is getting a makeover. New posts are going to be more in depth, and my old posts are going to be spruced up as well. I have a new posting schedule worked out, and lots more work to do, so please stay patient as I continue to work our the kinks of my new system. :)

3. Focus change.

I used to be the kind of blogger that was obsessed with receiving pageviews and followers (a post about this to come). Due to this obsession, I started losing focus, and blogging started to feel more like work and less like something I loved doing. After careful evaluation - and many repeated signs/reminders - I came to the fact that I was indeed a people pleaser. But learning this about myself has allowed me more insight, both to my human soul and to my blog, which has helped me reevaluate and shift my focus.

The new focus of my blog will be somewhere along the lines of expression, creativity and the journey one takes when getting to know their self (sorta kinda not really what I've been doing now, I guess).

4. Reader reward.

This blog is so close to reaching 150 readers, so as a reward I've decided to have a giveaway (whoops and cheers)! Check back in later for more details. ;)


Well, that's all for now! I hope you guys are excited for 2015 as I am. :)

What are you planning for the new year?

  1. I love this so much! We often have to rethink WHY we're blogging, and it's easy to lose our focus. Your new blog is awesome!

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…

Here are some tips to help you manage your time (whether it be for blogging or anything else). :)


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.
