So this one is gonna be a bit of a rant. I’m just fed up right now with the gossip culture we have started and how everyone needs to know everyone’s business and then, of course, has an opinion on it. I feel like a lot of people would be less stressed out if they just focused on their own lives and the choices they made.
It’s time to get off Instagram and stop judging people based on what they are doing or who they are dating. No one gets the full story from hearsay or from what they see on the internet.
How, when it became easier and faster to communicate, did communication become even worse. People no longer say what they mean, everything is misinterpreted, and it just causes so many more problems than what is needed. People don’t say what they mean but yet you’re supposed to know what they actually mean and act according to that? That makes no sense.
My life changed when I started voicing exactly how I feel about things. People think it’s wrong to have strong feelings about things but it’s not at all, it just means you are living, you’re feeling everything life has to offer. It’s okay to feel sad, to feel jealous, to feel mad, that’s normal, and then when you’re happy, you truly appreciate the feeling.
Everybody has different opinions and feelings toward different situations, and they like to judge people when they think differently. The problem is, who knows the full story? I don’t believe anyone ever knows the full story, therefore you can never judge.
Life would just be so much simpler if more people expressed how they were feeling, and then people were actually understanding of these feelings.
The definition of winsome it appealing in appearance and character. Winsome is one of the only words in the dictionary to describe the appealing nature of both looks and soul in one word. There’s a lot of beautiful people in the world but how many can make you feel beautiful. How many make you feel smart, funny, important? How many make you feel loved? It’s the beauty in the character that lasts and can make someone beautiful in their appearance and make everything in the world seem a little bit better.
I love traveling, but honestly who doesn’t? There is one part of traveling that I tend to get a little annoyed with and that is the constant want and then time spent taking photos. I personally am a go, go, go kind of person and hate waiting around for people to get that perfect shot and it cuts into your travel time to see other things. However, I have found one easy way to get around this issue and still get great photos.
Here is my simple trick, get a GoPro, start recording and never stop. You can edit photos straight of the videos you take and it is quick and easy to do! That is by far the easiest way I have found to get jaw dropping amazing photos without even trying. The candid ones of the people you are traveling with are always hilarious too. Check out some of my favorites below!
The second accessory that I really enjoy using is a chest strap. It really helps get those action shots when you need your hands free. I love to where it when I go biking. Check out the link below for the chest strap!
Hearing the wold treat, all my millennial mind can think of is “treat yo self”. From there the mind goes to eating pizza, or ice cream or buying that new handbag, but those things are not positively treating yourself. Sure, you get the instant gratification from that sweet taste on your taste buds but what happens when you feel sluggish an hour later, or when you gain that extra weight back. When did we confuse treating yourself with hurting yourself.
Now I’m not saying that sometimes in the day I don’t just crave some chocolate, but I don’t think of that as treating myself, because in the long run it will just make my life more stressful. I think of treating myself as taking that extra 30 minutes to take a long bath and give myself a facial, or spend an hour watching my favorite TV show while I drink tea.
When you treat yourself, you should come out feeling better. You should feel more calm, relaxed, or energized to get back to work. When you treat yourself in a negative way you just feel worse and then you want to treat yourself again which just spirals into a negative endless cycle.
So next time you go to treat yourself, think about how the treat might positively or negatively impact your life. Maybe make plans with friends, watch a funny YouTube video, or just listen to your favorite music. Treating yourself in this world doesn’t have to be a fleeting experience, it can have a long lasting positive impact on your life.
