Mental Health Awareness

May is Mental Health Awareness month.  On, Mental Health Awareness is our everyday goal.  In the year 2021 having a mental illness should be normalized, not just because it is a very common issue, but because we should be evolved enough to know that what we hide only festers.  We are however, subconsciously or consciously, still taught to keep the “less than perfect” things about ourselves hidden away.  We would venture a guess that most people would be more comfortable talking about their bathroom habits then the issues they deal with mentally.

My Life

Birthdays and holidays make us introspective, we start thinking about life, our own lives specifically.  These passage of time markers seem to come back around faster and faster each year!  Every year we make goals, some of us write them out, some of us mark them on calendars and journals, and some of us just file them away mentally.  Goals regarding education, life events, travel, mental health, physical health...we set them and often forget them, until we reach another birthday, holiday or life milestone and suddenly we remember to look back over the last few months to see

Growth Mindset

This week is Teacher’s Appreciation Week in the United States, where teachers get loads of loot that they probably do not want or need.

Overwhelmed and Tired

Spring is such a joyous time in books and movies isn’t it? The flowers are coming up, people are dancing for who knows what reason, the music is playing sweetly, pies are baking and no one is ever mad about anything! In real life Spring is kind of awful for any of us with allergies, pollen is everywhere, our cars look like a fairy exploded on them, our shopping carts are full of allergy meds and our arms look like pincushions from Allergy Shots.

Into the Unknown

Our title probably has you belting out the “Frozen” tune right about now and while the movie and songs were amazing, we want to focus on something a bit deeper. Where do we go from here, here being 2 days after the George Floyd trial where his murderer, a cop, was held accountable, something that doesn’t happen as often as it should. In the court of law, jurors have to be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty and deserving of a verdict proclaiming that. Our hearts are heavy, we have spent the last year mourning so much death and loss.
