With the year coming to an end, I thought it would be fun and interesting to look back on some of the posts that performed the best this year! While this might be a bit misconstrued because I switched Journey Thru 30 back over to TLSM this year, I still think this is fun to look back on especially since… Read more »

The Self-Care Challenge

      2 Comments on The Self-Care Challenge

I’ve been teasing a bit about this self-care challenge I’ve been doing but it’s time to finally fill you in on all of the nitty-gritty details.

Being laid off from my job has been quite the roller coaster, but I’ve been proud of myself for remaining relatively positive and optimistic despite it all. Since I am someone who is prone to anxiety so there’s no doubt that I… Read more »

March was a roller coaster. While we usually reference this saying in regards to the weather, “in like a lion, out like a lamb,” it feels awfully accurate to my month. I can’t say I have all the answers to the twists and turns the start of the month threw my way, but I can say the feelings of optimism… Read more »
