Accepting Anxiety

Accepting Anxiety

I legit struggled with this. It was almost as if I was giving up, by accepting that I had anxiety. I didn’t want to have anxiety and I for sure didn’t want to be judged by others. Many nights i’ve cried, why me? Why is this happening to me? Where did this come from? All questions that I’m still trying to unpack. But, the more I learn about anxiety, the more I understand the importance of accepting it. I remember having internal battles with myself and feeling embarrassed because “I’m suppose to have it ALL together.” Guess what, I don’t...


UnMotivated, But Considerate Maybe?

UnMotivated, But Considerate Maybe?

I’ve been feeling unmotivated lately and i’m sure others can relate. Transparent moment: I’ve been in business since 2017 and I’ve always struggled to keep going when things didn’t turn out how I wanted them to. However, I would always muster up the strength to push through. Yall, this pandemic is SOMETHING else and has tried to make me feel like my message is not important right now. I’m like with everything going on, how dare I post my self-care products? How dare I think my products are important. And honesty, for a few weeks I didn’t post products because I...


Elderberry Chronicles

Elderberry Chronicles

  I’ve been seeing the word elderberry more and more, so of course I had to do some digging. According to the web, these berries are “packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system. They can help tame inflammation, lessen stress, and help protect your heart. Some experts recommend elderberry to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms.” Of course after hearing all of the benefits, I was sold! I’m currently taking immunity vitamins that have elderberry as an ingredient, but of course I wanted to find out what else was out there. My gosh, there...


Do you support mental health days?

Do you support mental health days?

Employers, Managers, Supervisors, Administrators, Employees and ALL others, do you support mental health days? Employers, if your employees come to you requesting to take a mental health day, how do you react? Employees, when you have requested mental health days, how did your employer act? Do people request mental health days or are they afraid to do so? Talk to me.
 In my opinion, mental health days are REAL and should not be viewed as “an excuse” or a “cop out” for lack of better words. Sometimes, we need to get away from it all and RECHARGE! It is so...


Self-care does NOT have to be expensive!

Self-care does NOT have to be expensive!

When MOST people think about self-care, they associate it with luxurious trips to Paris or even a Full day Spa treatment. And although I am NOT debating that both are GREAT, I think it's IMPORTANT to understand that self-care does not have to be expensive. You do NOT have to spend tons of money to take care of self. Period! Think about it, what does self-care really mean to you? Does it mean spending lots of money to feel good, or does it mean doing the internal work that makes you feel good? To each's own, but this post will...
