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…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
