an open letter to the broken spirit, pt 2

if you’ve been following me on my blogging journey since last july, you’re familiar with the post I titled an open letter to the broken spirit. july will likely always be a month where I reminisce on what the Lord has done for me + I will be in awe of the things to come – so with that being said, I’ve been spending a lot of time looking back on who I was one year ago and who God made me into today.

july goals + habit tracker  |  healthy tips for your fourth of july celebrations

I’m so sorry that I completely spaced on June’s tracker – if I’m being honest I was very frustrated with myself and the lack of sticking to my goals, so I was nervous to followup. but, in my defense I injured my hip back in the beginning of may which made it hard to workout anything other than arms + core (which got so boring after a while). my hips are finally good enough to implement leg day again, but running is still very much so out of the question. but that to say, I’m back and ready to take control of my health again.

overall, june was a great month. it was my birthday month, and I feel very blessed by my friends and am full of hope and great expectations about what’s to come. but it’s finally hitting me that hard work really does make the dream work, so I’m using July to propel me to where I want to be – when you know, you know, right?

I love the fourth of july so much, but if you’re trying to be/eat healthier, it can pose some temptations. today I’m talking about a few of the tips + tricks I’ve implemented myself to keep myself on track with my cleaner eating while still getting to indulge and celebrate independence day.

the distortion of love

before I get started with this post, I’m not claiming to be a professional when it comes to love – not even in the slightest. I’m just as human + just as flawed as the next person. but as I have listened to a particular song, more and more I have started to wonder what has happened to the concept of love + what it’s supposed to be.

How Blogging has Helped my Anxiety

The main problem with anxiety is that you get completely stuck in your head – like, super stuck. You feel like a broken record and no matter how hard you try to talk it out or talk yourself down, you can feel yourself continue to spiral to the point of a physical and mental breakdown.

9 Health Benefits of Spring Cleaning + Non-Toxic Household Cleaners (Plus Free Printable Checklist!)

Starting tomorrow, we can finally see sight of spring! After the south’s sweltering, never-ending summers, we come to appreciate winter – but there’s something about being so close to warm, sunny weather that gets me so excited. The sunscreen is so close I can already smell it!

Another aspect of spring I’ve come to love as an adult is spring. cleaning. Lame, I know. Winter is so good for curling up in bed to watch a movie or read a book, but with the warmer weather comes a bustle that makes us realize just how sloppy we became during our cold weather-induced laze.
