A pensive gentleman, a guy in a chicken suit, and a Harlem Globetrotter all walk into a mansion…
It’s no secret that with our recent generations that there has been a significant increase in people having anxiety. The constant intake of social media and comparing ourselves to other’s highlight reels on the internet certainly doesn’t help that. But the fact that we grew up in a time where technology changed and advanced so quickly and so many other factors of modern society, it’s no wonder that so many of us are suffering from anxiety.
I felt unmotivated and uninspired by everything I was writing and the pictures I was taking – it all just seemed boring to me. So, I took an unintentional break to recharge and gain a new perspective. I’ve also been incredibly busy with college and work so writing began to feel like a chore and I was not willing to put out content that feels forced or I’m not happy with.
As I’m sitting here typing this post there are flurries outside my window…in mid-March. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so over it and ready to for flowers to start growing, windows open, and wearing cute spring outfits again. It feels like the winter is never ending! Regardless, I’m determined to make it feel like spring as much as I can until the weather catches on.
There is an incredible misconception about what being a feminist means. It’s all too often thought of as being a dirty word or a man-hating agenda – all which are far from the truth. Simply put, being a feminist is the equality among the sexes socially, politically, legally, and economically.
I never used to be big into the law of attraction, or things like actually writing down my goals. But more than half of my new year’s goals involved getting closer to my dream life, and whatever I was doing in the past just wasn’t cutting it; I knew I had to try different methods.
There’s something nice about being up early and knowing that half the world isn’t even out of bed yet. When I was in high school, I hated the mornings and would cut it extremely close when it came to running for the bus – especially my senior year. Now that I’ve been in college for almost two years now, I have grown to like the mornings especially when I don’t have class until the afternoon.
I used to like to pretend that I’m not super into Valentine’s Day because, on one hand, I do believe you should show your love for the people in your life every day. But, on the other hand, I’m an ‘extra’ kind of person and, honestly, I love days where I can shower people with my love and appreciation for them.
Something that has really peaked my interest in the last couple months is why I am the way that I am. I know some of the aspects to that question lie in my anxiety, but there were just somethings about myself that I couldn’t explain to people or even myself.
