5 Tips To Getting Through 'The Struggle'


Can I be frank? Can I be brutally honest? I'm nearing 32 and I am in no way, shape, or form close to being in life where I want to be. In society there are so many things we are supposed to have checked off by the time we are 30, and those goals seem so far away. One thing for sure?

You are at the place in life where you are supposed to be, no matter what.


Meaning? I feel like I am where I am supposed to be in order to advance into the next chapter of my life. I didn't get to this place overnight, and I'm not over the hill yet. So, what do you do when you still have so much more to go before you reach your goals and dreams? You just keep pressing on.

5 Tips To Getting Through 'The Struggle'
  1. Ask yourself what you want out of life
  2. Write your goals down on paper
  3. Write them again somewhere else!
  4. Share them with no one!
  5. Envision life when you reach your success
I can't stress #4 enough! You already have enough going on in your life, you don't need a Debbie Downer mucking it up any further. Seriously, with age one of the things I have learned more times than once is: don't talk about it, be about it. I have always shared my goals out loud with friends or family, and I am yet to accomplish one. Seriously. Not joking.

This isn't a post to talk about or dwell on all the things I have not accomplished in my life, I want to celebrate my struggle. Who does that? I do. It's a humbling experience, 'the struggle'.  Your struggle and path in life is your unique trial and tribulation. You have to stop comparing yourself and your life goals to those of others. When I get to where I want to be, this struggle will make my dreams and goals that much more sweet.

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
