Is Self-love the best love? 

Self-love is the “regard for one’s own well-being and happiness” — Oxford Dictionary Having a regard for your happiness and well-being means making the active effort to participate in activities that enhance your well-being and make you happy, while saying no to things that don’t bring you joy and cause you pain. Self-love, to me, is making my happiness and well-being a priority whilst learning to love my strengths and flaws. It’s taking the time to rest and recover to prevent burning out. It’s making the conscious decision to commit to being the best possible person I can be, saying […]

Whatever doesn’t serve you will be ripped away

What does it mean when something serves you? When something serves you, it elevates you, inspires you and makes you happy. When something no longer serves you, it stagnates, regresses and upsets you. Over time I’ve learned that holding onto things that no longer serve me will lead to them being ripped away from me. Whether it’s friends, relationships, jobs and nails (when I cheat on my nail tech), all get taken away at some point. Occasionally, I’ll make the conscious decision to let go because I’ve realised these things are not getting me anywhere, other times I’ll hold on […]

The pain of feeling unappreciated. 

Unappreciated and overburdened.    There is nothing worse than going out of your way for someone and when a similar situation arises, they don’t do the same for you or they don’t say thank you.  While you shouldn’t do things for others in expectation of receiving something in return; it’s still painful to know that,  that person wouldn’t and doesn’t appreciate you or your time. There are so many people who do not have the same heart as you and do not have good intentions for you, which sets you up for many disappointments along the road. Don’t get me […]

Toxic friendships 

Friendships are weird, you meet someone, you start talking, notice you enjoy the same things and you build from there. As time goes on you become friends.   Over the last few years I’ve realized the significance of friendships and why it’s essential  to limit who gets to know the real you. Friends have an affect on our happiness, self esteem and not to mention stress levels. So it’s wise to not accept or entertain everyone as a friend because not everyone deserves you. Not everyone has the same heart as you and quite frankly not everyone is entitled to your time. From my experience there are so […]
