5 Self-Love Languages

The 5 Love Languages is a book by Gary Chapman that explores how everyone has a preferred way to receive love from other people. Some people feel love from getting gifts, others from words, others from actions. When my love and I first started dating, I asked her what her love language was and she didn’t know. When she took the test and figured out what it was it was a great way for she and I to connect. Sometimes it’s difficult to put into words what you need (especially if you’re a people pleaser or not used to having…

Self-Care for Loneliness

Before I met my current love, I lived alone for 12 years. I get loneliness (if you do too, check out my Self-Love Workbook). I understand it way down in my bones. Part of my (social) anxiety (and depression!) is my tendency to isolate myself. Before I discovered self-love this was a crippling combination because I didn’t understand it. Instead of realizing that I was often alone because of that tendency to isolate myself – I blamed it on my un-lovableness and my brokenness. Which deepened my sense of loneliness because it didn’t feel like something that could be fixed.…

Self-Care Memes for February 2019

For the longest time, I’ve been really intimidated by Instagram. There’s just so much prettiness! At the same time, I’ve also been really frustrated with my Facebook Page. Facebook algorithms make it so hard for posts to be seen unless you pay money to “boost” them. I have over 20,000 fans on my Facebook page and I’m lucky if I get 50 likes on a post. It’s so discouraging! I decided to try my hand at Instagram and it has paid off big time. In just a few months I went from 5,000 followers to almost 20,000, insert cheering! I’ve…

Intrusive Thoughts and Obsessive Thought Loops

What’s an intrusive thought? An intrusive thought is an unwelcome involuntary thought, image, or unpleasant idea that may become an obsession, is upsetting or distressing, and can feel difficult to manage or eliminate.* We all have intrusive thoughts, although it’s something we don’t talk about because of embarrassment, shame, and well, guilt. They range from things like wanting to break everything when you’re walking by the dishes at Target, thinking you have a deadly disease because your stomach hurts, or replaying an event in your head over and over again. There are darker intrusive thoughts too. Thoughts like hurting the people you care…

Self-Care Battery: Recharge Yours!

In the Self-Love Workbook, I talk a lot about self-care and recharging. But how do you know what and how to recharge? Let’s have a little chat about your self-care battery. Have you ever heard of the “Spoon Theory“? It’s a way to describe how people with chronic illness have a limited amount of energy. Every day they are allotted a certain number of “spoons”. Every activity costs a certain number of spoons. Getting out of bed may be two spoons, cooking breakfast is one, showering is two, doing chores is three, while going to work is four, and going out…

The Secret to Fixing Other People

The secret to fixing other people is that you can’t. You probably already knew that. It doesn’t stop you from wanting to fix people. To see what they’re doing wrong, to swoop in and save them from themselves. Raise your hand if you’ve wished with your whole heart that you could take away someone else’s pain. It’s so hard to watch them struggle, especially if you’re empathic like I am. Their pain affects you almost as if it were your own and you hurt for them. A long time ago I had a friend that struggled with drug use. She…

The MoonSisterhood: Online Witch Group

I’ve been practicing an earth-based spiritual path for nearly 18 years now (Gods that makes me feel old). I started out as a little baby Pagan reading Scott Cunningham books and practicing magic outside in the dead of night when my mom was asleep. The thing I remember most about that time, silly as it is, is the apple cinnamon scented candle I used for all of my spellwork. To this day, that smell brings me back. Over the last few years I’ve grown detached from my path, wandered out into the middle of nowhere and I’ve completely lost my…

My Favorite Winter ASMR Scenes

One of the gifts from the Gods as far as my anxiety is concerned are ASMR videos (ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response and it’s a euphoric experience that is usually triggered by visual and digital stimulus.) and ambient noise videos. When I get really anxious I start to have a sensory meltdown. Certain noises bother me and create anxiety but usually the worst part is silence. I can’t handle silence. It becomes a compulsive need to have some sort of sound around me and when it stops? I honestly feel like I’m about to have a panic attack. Thankfully…

My Word of the Year for 2019

I can’t believe that this will be my 8th year in a row choosing a word-of-the-year. It’s so cool to be able to look back at each year and see where my mind was at and how that word led me to my next one. Gods, I love being a blogger. I have this documentation to this amazing journey that is life. There’s a spot in the 2019 Self-Love Workbook to document your word. Before I share with you my word for 2019 and what it means to me, let’s take a trip down memory lane. And if you’re looking…

Healing From Toxic Romantic Relationships

If you’ve been around for a while then you’ve probably read about my relationship with an alcoholic. Holy trauma batman. I don’t know how I survived with my sanity intact. There were many times I didn’t think I would. As someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression that relationship, all three years of it, nearly broke me. To be perfectly honest I’m not sure that there was any aspect of my life not affected by the trauma of it. And I am starting to realize that it is trauma. We’ve all been in bad relationships, it’s a rite of passage,…
