Fifth Edition: Friday Favorites

Unlike the months before this Friday Favorites isn't themed. However, all these posts are lifestyle related and inspirational. I love each of their perspectives on the topic they're discussing so I thought I'd share them with you all. 

1. The World is My Playground 
Just by the title I already knew I was going to love this post. Chelsea from Inspiration Indulgence talks about how hard it is to adult. Then goes on to tell us  that sometimes we just need to break free and have a little fun, similar to how it was when we were children. Create a little magic each day. She's right. We should break out in dance or song when you hear something you like. Go swinging. Order a happy meal.

Book Review: Radical Self Love by Gala Darling

Radical Self-Love by Gala Darling has been on my must reads list for over a year now. While I was on Spring Break in Iowa I decided it would be a good time to pick it up and start reading. I'm happy I did because it was just what I needed. I got my book from Barnes and Nobles however not all of them have the copy in their stores. So I'd suggest buying it from their online store or Amazon

About The Author: 
The author, Gala Darling, has struggled with an eating disorder, depression, self-harm, body image issues, and some identity issues. In the book, she talks about her experiences and what she did to change her life. It's inspiring and mostly because she admits the radical self-love journey isn't easy. It's her journey from sad and miserable to loving herself and life. If your intrested in learning more about her or reading some of her work check out her blog Gala Darling.  I think it's really worth reading.

Mantra Monday #5

Finish the sentence "Today is the day I..." What comes to your mind when you say "Today is the day"? For me it's Today is the day I actually get up off my butt and exercise. Today is the day I stop making excuses for myself. Today is the day I get shit done. Today is the day I study. Today is the day I open a book. Today is the day I show those in my life a little love.

Going Back to Where It Started

As you can see I haven't been blogging here much lately. Although when I started this new blog I had so many expectations, plans, and hopes for my new little space. I wanted to be more active in my blogging groups, I wanted to be pumping 3 posts each week without missing a beat, I wanted to be on top of my social media strategy, and I wanted to grow as a blogger. It seems like I've taken 100 steps back from those original goals. In the beginning, it worked out for me then with the semester load and new things happening in my life. I let this space slip away and now I've been in a writing rut.
