Getting out in nature is an important factor for maintaining good mental health. It can free your mind, release stress, and bring you to a peaceful emotional state. Being in the environment of open fields, trees, birds, flowers, and bodies of water will calm the mind. The fresh air and freedom you receive from the wilderness has the power to shift your mind state into a positive direction. Your mind opens up and has a more expansive range of thoughts to flow through. You will be at peace. If you are ever feeling trapped, stuck, or in a cycle of negative thoughts a nature walk may be the perfect solution. You will be brought to such a natural place that you can begin realizing the world is much larger than you or me. We each have our individual lives going on, and while all that is happening the world of nature is…

I need to learn to take kindly to being misunderstood. To forget about it, to let people think what they want.
But I guess when a message I’m trying to portray is so important, in my opinion, and so often lost, that’s when I feel the need to make it clear.
Ok, so let me start here:
I share a lot about myself. I put a lot of me out here for you all to read…(and by all of you, I mean you, you…the one who birthed me…hi Mom. Perhaps my one and only avid reader…)

I like to chat to pass the time, and also to guarantee that though I put them through hell they like me enough to come back next time. We chat about everything from jobs to families to dreams, but there’s one thing we ALWAYS end of talking about: relationships. Girls who don’t have a relationship want one, and girls who have one will put up with all sorts of BS to keep it.
Let me give you a personal example. This summer I got a raise at work, expanded my side business to double what it was a few months before, and lost about 10 lbs. That sounds awesome right?! WRONG. Why? Because I’m officially boyfriend-less, and I’m already feeling the pressure to find another one. Now if I…

It was not my goal to be an inspiration to other girls, but here I am at the beginning of this enlightenment I am bestowing on the face of beauty standards. I have had multiple females approach me and tell me that I am an inspiration and that they are/ have contemplating/ed shaving their heads too, for different reasons obviously. People come up to me and tell me I could be a model, but as flattering as that sounds the only model I would ever want to be (if any) is a role model for girls in a younger generation or even for women in generations ahead of me to show them being your true self is okay. Is this what it feels like to be a leader and take charge of life- by being an inspiration? Do I really want people to view me, a tiny spec of a…
