January and February have been tough and draining for not only me, but many people in my life too. Lately, I’ve been reflecting a lot on something I learned while working in a “high end” *cue eyeroll* environment. At that time, I had a self-esteem issues going on. And that environment wasn’t always helpful, but it did teach me one very important thing about confidence.
Resolutions and bucket list items are great, but they can get overwhelming. I’m sure we’ve all made a ton of resolutions that we didn’t end up keeping. This week, I’ll be sharing a few keys in setting yourself up for success in your resolutions.
Hi everyone! I know it’s rare for me to do a non-fashion post at the beginning of the month, but stick around to the end and you’ll see why. Anyways, I feel that self care isn’t internalized nearly enough. We can all talk about eating healthier, getting more sleep, more me-time, and less overthinking…but how many of us actually follow through on it? This week, I’ll be talking about self-care in three levels: the body, mind, and spirit.
There’s no better season than fall to begin reflecting on the year. It’s a good time to start asking yourself who has really been there for you. It’s a good time to also look deep within yourself and begin unrooting any destructive thoughts that have been festering over the year. This week, I’ll be sharing some simple activities that have been helping me feel at peace and also bond with loved ones.
Seasonal mood swings are like period cramps for me. I feel them oncoming and I’m like “here they are again.” Many people I know love the transition of summer to fall. But some of my close friends and I are more prone to feeling anxious, sad, or angry over things that normally wouldn’t affect us. So this week, I’ll be sharing three strategies that have been helping me through the transition.
Hi everyone! You may have noticed I’ve been away. I was back in China and got sick immediately after. But at least I wasn’t sick during the trip. Which means more time for food and family (the two most important things in life). We were mainly in Beijing and Chengdu, so if you ever find yourself in those areas, I highly recommend trying these.
So I guess my “emotional person’s guide” is a series now. Perhaps you’re emotional like me (do you cry no matter how many times you’ve seen Big Hero 6? Is your art heavily influenced by your emotional state? Do animal rescue videos make you uncontrollably tearful from happiness?) Or maybe you don’t experience extreme emotional highs and lows. No matter who you are, I hope this series will become something you can relate to and look forward to reading!
I’ve mentioned in my Summer Activities post that my friends and I will be taking a trip to Montreal this weekend. We’re going to Otakuthon (an anime convention held there) as well as doing some sightseeing. I’m particularly excited for Poutineville! Anyways, I’ve been inspired to share an incredible creative outlet with you guys- cosplay!
Lately, relationship talk has been floating around in my circles. Despite being open about mental health and things I’ve learned in life, I’ve never talked about relationships before.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the flow of events shape a person’s life. Every choice we make now impacts the sort of choices we’ll have to make in the future. There are infinite realities and infinite ways things could have happened- and that’s a big cause of regret. Because we never know if a choice we’ve made was truly the best one.
