Okay, so the title feels a little harsh with it being the first thing you’re seeing and all, but you read me right – your opinion of me is none of my business. Furthermore, someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business. And yes, if you’re thinking that sentiment sounds familiar, you would be correct because I definitely spend a lot of my days reciting Rachel Hollis quotes to myself like there’s no tomorrow. Sometimes we all need a dose of blunt wisdom. Be warned, this post is pretty much an ode to Rachel Hollis quotes.Continue reading “your opinion of me is none of my business”
May is one of my favorite months here on the blog because I love getting to recognize one of the aspects of health + wellness I’m most passionate about: mental health. I’ve never been quiet about my struggles with anxiety + panic attacks, but about two years ago – when I revamped the blog – I posted about my personal struggle with anxiety. When I realized how good it felt to open up about my anxiety and saw how many people it touched, I promised I would continue to be a voice for those that still felt unable to speak out.Continue reading “wellness wednesday: mental health awareness month”
Have you ever had one of those moments when God lays something heavy on your heart and you know you have to spit it out even though you don’t exactly know where or how to begin? This is one of those moments for me lol. I’m hoping as I write, my mind will clear up a little bit and I can convey the message I’m trying to desperately to get across.Continue reading “the one thing you never have to apologize for”
Happy Wednesday readers! A fun little fact about today is that it’s national handwriting day. So for today’s post I decided to do something a little different and handwrite it. I felt like it was fitting for what I wanted to write about today anyway. I hope that it leaves you feeling encouraged and that you’ll join me in making 2019 your most unlimited year yet.Continue reading “I am unlimited”
There’s part of me that hesitates to write this because I genuinely do fear saying the wrong thing or wording it in a way that gets misconstrued. I rarely take such controversial topics to The Southern Sooner because I like this to be a fun place and not something that makes people feel attacked, offended, or uncomfortable. But in light of a recent tweet by Cardi B, there was something in me that stirred and felt convicted to share my opinion on.Continue reading “cardi b vs. the conservative woman”
I can’t believe it’s already Christmas Eve! There’s just been so much holiday excitement this month that it came before I knew it. I hope everyone has been enjoying their holiday season and spending time with their loved ones. I know that the holidays don’t bring as much joy to everyone, whether it was just a bad year or the holidays hold hard memories in general, but I hope that regardless of the circumstances that everyone has gotten to experience some peace + joy during the buzz.Continue reading “what christmas means to me”
Hope has been a concept I’ve clung to for as long as I can remember – it’s what pulled me through the hardest of times. I really felt like this is a post that needed to be shared with the holidays coming up. I know there are a lot of people I am close to (and those that I don’t know at all) that have had a challenging year, and I know the Christmas season may not be filled with as much joy as usual. I don’t know if this will resonate with anyone, but as I write this post, know my heart has been broken with those who feel beaten down this season – I don’t know every situation, but God does and I can’t emphasize enough that He sees you exactly where you are.
