Blogtober Day 12: Best Advice I'ver Ever Been Given

This is an amazing writing prompt, if I do say so myself. I don't know if I give off the need for advice, but I have been gifted a lot in my 29 years, haha! I love it more than I don't, so it's all good.

Some of the best advice I have ever been given:
Mom:
Eye on the prize.
Remember compassion.
Never assume you know what someone else's backyard looks like.
Write every day. I don't care if it's a grocery list, write it out.

From my guru, my poppy:
If you can look up, you can get up. Although I think this was from him hearing it via Dr. Phil, so him too.
What are you scared of? A dark room? Turn on a light. It's that easy.
Sit down at a dinner table, have conversation, and slow down when you eat.

When I left from my hometown for college the first time, my aunt who I am very close with, yelled to me as I drove away, "You don't take shit from anyone, you hear me?" As I've transitioned as a person the last eight years, living on my own and building my life, this has helped me time after time.

My Hunter:
This is my mushy shout out to my man, because whenever an occurrence occurs where I striving for something, Hunter always keeps it simple but direct saying "Be you." It calms and focuses me, and provides the boost of confidence needed in those moments. I don't think many people can go wrong with this advice. Always a good reminder to be you.



Until we meet again,

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
