Today marked the eighth month anniversary of my mother’s murder. Each month this surprises me, as if I cannot believe that yet another full month has passed by. Still, after all this time, it feels insane that she is really gone. I still keep expecting, keep hoping, for her to come back, to pop backContinue reading “A Melancholy Anniversary”
If you’re not already aware, October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which takes on a whole new meaning for me this year, now that I’ve lost my mother to domestic violence. I always noticed the cause and appreciated all that was being done by organizations during this month in past years because my motherContinue reading “Remembering My Mother During Domestic Violence Awareness Month”
So last month, I’m sure most of you know, I did a big project where I challenged myself to do one act of kindness a day. And while some of these acts of kindness were small, the overall project itself was pretty big. For some people, it might seem overwhelming to take on that much,Continue reading “Small Acts of Kindness Can Change the World”
For tonight’s blog post, I am not writing about the typical “happy” things. This post is for those who are actively grieving, and just so you know, grieving doesn’t just have to be a person. It can be the year you thought 2020 was going to be before the dumpster fire that it was. ItContinue reading “Grieving and Honoring the Person We Lost”
So this week was a little bit of a doozy for me in many ways. That is why, if any of you noticed, I didn’t have a post up on Tuesday night as I usually do. That is ultimately why I decided to do this activity specifically this week. It’s one that’s been in myContinue reading “What’s Your Why?”
So, as promised, tonight’s blog post is an overview of the August Act of Kindness Challenge I gave myself. This challenge really came about because this past year has been so crazy, both in the grand scheme of things (what with the global pandemic and everything) and on the small scale, in my own personalContinue reading “Final Thoughts on August Kindness Challenge”
I know I usually post my overview of the previous week’s kindness challenge on Friday nights, but since August is officially over (how crazy is that!?), I thought I would wrap up what I did for the last few days with my post tonight. If you want to know why I did this challenge, youContinue reading “August Act of Kindness: Week Five”
Day 21: Diapers for ParentsFor this day, I wanted to do a “random” act of kindness or something that would impact a stranger. I ordered a pack of eco-friendly disposable diapers off of Earth Hero and put several of them in the changing table in the family restroom at Publix while I was doing aContinue reading “August Act of Kindness: Week Four”
(I apologize for getting this post out late! There was a lot going on Friday and this weekend in general, including an internet outage, and by the time I was actually able to get this up, it was nearly Tuesday, so I decided to wait to post this. I hope you’ll understand!) Hopefully by thisContinue reading “August Act of Kindness: Week Three”
For most of us, I’m sure we have those things in our life that can consistently tend to get us down, especially when it comes to some sort of rejection. I feel like this can be especially common if you are in a creative field, where you are open to a lot of criticism andContinue reading “Dealing with Rejection”
