The Importance Of Taking A Day Off For Yourself

For the past few months I have been going to war with myself as to whether or not I could afford to take a day off during the week, not to do anything particular, but just to have a day to myself. The weekends always tend to fill up with checklists and when your in a relationship, those days are spent tackling tasks together and sometimes it is nice to have a day all to yourself. Well, I finally took that day off and it was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a long time. I…

May All You’re Crystals Be Precious

I still remember the first crystal I ever owned, it was a small tiger’s eye that my best friend gave to me. Tiger’s eye are most recognized for their energy to bring good luck, I guess I needed luck in my life at that point in time.

So I guess it takes a leap upon faith to acknowledge this energy.

It is this energy that connects us to this planet and everything in it, and also the universe. This is a mind-blowing…

Am I Appropriate Enough?

Since childhood, we have had an imprint in our minds of what’s right and what’s wrong, appropriate and inappropriate. Of course manners are learned to teach common respect and some common sense, but I think what is wrong and what is right can be altered by everyone’s opinion. Therefore, once you develop and decide who you are in this world, it is your own opinion to decide if what you do is appropriate. As a current student in journalism, I currently am being told and having to respond to what is considered appropriate as a journalist. What to wear, what…
