It’s Been Four Months Since I Started Therapy - Here’s How it’s Been Going

Back in May, I wrote a blog post, filling y’all in on a major journey I was about to embark on…therapy. In that post, I kind of gave you guys the story behind what led me to seeking counseling and just how I went about finding the right place for me. So, if this is your first time reading about my therapy journey, definitely make sure you go back and read the May blog post. Anyhow, it’s been about 12-15 weeks since then, and boy what a journey it has been!

How to Stay Encouraged While Job-Hunting

About a year ago, I was around 6-8 months into my current position, when I started to feel really uncomfortable. I was feeling uncomfortable, in my spirit. I felt, strongly, that I was made to be doing something way more meaningful, than what I was currently being tasked with. I showed up to work almost everyday in like the worst mood ever, and I was just so unhappy.

How to Simplify Your Self-Care Routine

Is it just me, or is making sure you squeeze in some self-care just as stressful as the reasons why you’re trying to squeeze some in, in the first place? I mean there just isn’t enough time in the day to get in all the self-care I want to sometimes. I think what we really need is a nationally recognized holiday, dedicated to a full day’s worth of self-care. I mean, that would just be the best thing ever. BUT, until then, I think I’ve found a solution. Here’s three ways that I’ve learned to simplify my self-care routine, that I think you’d find helpful as well!

5 Months Until We Say I Do - Wedding Planning Q&A

Welp ladies, Terrance and I have officially hit the halfway mark until our wedding day, and I couldn’t be more excited. Things are getting real, real fast. For a minute, it felt like we had some down-time and the months were going by seemingly slow, since we knocked out a lot of the big things early. But, now I’m low-key panicking and wanting to make sure we’ve covered all our bases.

My "Supreme" Morning Routine

Some weeks ago, I had one of the best and productive mornings I’ve had a in a really long time. I woke up feeling refreshed, got all the essentials done, wasn’t rushing. I literally felt like I could conquer the world when I walked out of the door. If you follow me on Instagram , then you probably already saw my story raving about how good of a morning it was. Honestly, if I could have a morning like that ALL the time, I’m pretty sure I’d be unstoppable.

MY 2019 READING LIST

As early as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed reading books. Maybe me being an only child and having to entertain myself has something to do with it. I’m not sure, but I feel like that’s a thing, lol. Lately though, I’ve realized that faith-based, self-help and biographies are the kinds of books I gravitate toward these days. I think it’s just because of my current stage in life and just trying to figure things out, those just seem way more beneficial than fictional books at the moment.

I'm Engaged! | How We Met + The Proposal

(Cues girly squeals of excitement)! Yesssss chile, can you believe it? I’m about to be a whole wife outchea! Ok….let me stop, lol! But seriously, how crazy is this? I’m engaged?!?! Ahhh, so many emotions flood in every time I think about it. I’m mostly excited, slightly overwhelmed and a little bit nervous. I get to spend the rest of my life with one of my most favorite people in the world, wedding planning is ALREADY stressing me out (GIRL! I can’t even) and I just want to be the best wife and mom I can be. Ultimately, I know everything will be fine, but I just want us to get through this wedding planning and down the aisle. You feel me?

Welcome to the Blog

I don’t want the idea of striving to live a Supreme Life to be this thing of  thinking we have to reach perfection, because we won’t ever be perfect in all of those areas. But I believe if you have some sort of benchmark to measure your efforts against, it’ll help you stay focused.
