just because i’m spiritual doesn’t mean i’m positive all the time

There’s this common misconception that if you claim to be a “spiritual” person, then you must be super zen and super chill and feel no emotions other than happiness 24/7. You never curse, you never want to slap somebody, you never get annoyed, you never get frustrated, you never want to make a bad decision,…

hippie gifts you’ll ♥

I know that I’ve touched on some heavier topics recently, but since December is coming up, I wanted to lighten the mood. As you probably already figured out, I love anything spiritual, artistic, “hippie-like”, etc. If you have somebody in your life that has bohemian taste but you don’t know where to start, or if…

heal yourself first

For the longest time, I genuinely thought that if I just found that right person, everything would fall into place. I wouldn’t feel the urge to go out and drink so often because I’d have somebody at home to spend time with. I’d feel more confident about myself because I would have somebody that loved…

don’t be afraid of that “thing”

I seriously couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve failed or gotten rejected or turned away from something (or somebody) and felt like a complete and total loser. I stumbled upon this video of Oprah talking about how “there are no mistakes” and she described EXACTLY how I feel right now. I think you should definitely…

self-destructive behavior

I would be lying if I said a year later after starting this blog, I’m healed. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still trying to fill a void. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still lonely. I’d be lying if I said that I’ve changed for the better, that I’m this…

high vibration life

I’m sure many of you have heard of the New Age-y concept of the law of attraction. Maybe you watched “The Secret” documentary on Netflix or read the book, got inspired, but then dismissed the idea altogether when you didn’t immediately manifest a wedding ring or a new sports car just by thinking about it….

the autumn equinox and what it says about your life

Whether or not you consider yourself a spiritual person, the autumn equinox is said to be a symbol of harvesting and gratitude. According to this website, “Indigenous cultures recognized earth-based wisdom and understood that the four focal points of the year: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox; illuminated stages of an inner…

following your own path

If you’re trying to get to a certain destination in your car and you’re not paying attention, have no sense of direction, or you’re listening to the person in the passenger seat tell you where to go even though they have no idea what they’re talking about, you’re inevitably going to get lost. You’re going…

rejoicing in your differences

When I read some of my old posts that I wrote when I first started this blog, all I could think was, “Wow…this girl that I’m talking about sounds like she pounds tequila bottles by herself every time she’s sad and wakes up in the morning with the shakes until she chugs a bottle of…

the cut off

You become the 5 people that you associate the most with. If you want to see where you’re going in life, most likely you’re heading the same places that your friends are. So if you want to go in a different direction, sadly that means cutting off the people that aren’t doing anything to help…

feeling the “shift”

There comes a time in every young adult’s life when they have to transition from a helpless, naive, carefree child to a responsible, conscious, and decisive adult. I used to (and for the record, this was not very long ago) DREAD the time when I actually had to use my noggin and not do all…

6 months later

It’s been 6 months since I decided to start this blog and start documenting my progress towards positive change. 6 months ago, I felt like I had hit a personal rock bottom. I didn’t feel in control of my life or my self-esteem and I was over it. Toxic people, alcohol, denial, and an enticing…
