Stop comparing your life timeline to others

I’m not exactly sure if the term ‘life timeline’ is the best way to encapsulate what I’m referring to, but hear me out. I haven’t heard another term for it as of yet, so we will tentatively stick with ‘life timeline’ for now. When I say life timeline, I’m making reference to how one’s life … More Stop comparing your life timeline to others

You never know who you might be talking to

This past weekend, my mom, sister and me took a much-needed afternoon to get away from the farm for a little while. Anyone who comes from a farm background will know precisely what I mean in my previous statement, and for anyone unfamiliar with agriculture and farming families, I’ll briefly explain; because most family farms … More You never know who you might be talking to

The significance of designating time to spend with your partner

I would argue that just about all of us would say we are busy. Busy seems to be an inevitable state when it comes to this thing known as life, and I find we are becoming busier and busier the older we get. While I’m not certain if we truly are taking on more duties … More The significance of designating time to spend with your partner

Blaineisms

Allow me to clarify the title of this post. Blaine, my husband, is a quirky guy, to say the least. Some of the words and phrases that come out of his mouth are positively hysterical, and he tends to catch me completely off guard with his wittiness, ensuring the situation is that much more hilarious. … More Blaineisms

Mind your business

The idea of keeping one’s nose out of someone else’s business is not, in any way, shape or form, a new concept. It’s been around for quite a while now, although despite its prehistoric origins, it seems to me as though a lot of us are blissfully unaware of this ideology and could benefit from … More Mind your business

Navigating chaos

Married life, although quite short in duration at this point in time, has been interesting, to say the least. When I say interesting, I’m not even referring to my husband, Blaine; he is a quirky lad, but he isn’t what has made our married situation unique. Rather, we have a newly renovated house we are … More Navigating chaos

Our wedding day

I would like to begin this post by sincerely apologizing for my absence here on my blog these past few days. While I don’t condone my absence, nor do I think I should be making excuses for it, I should mention that on Saturday, June 25, my fiancé, Blaine, and I got married. Again, not … More Our wedding day

Read this to learn how to control stress management

As unpleasant as it is, stress is arguably something that affects each and every one of us at some point in time throughout the duration of our lives. Come to think of it, I don’t believe I’ve ever met someone who claims they are entirely free of stress, and honestly, anyone who proclaims this has … More Read this to learn how to control stress management

The significance of understanding boundaries in relationships

Relationships as a concept are a highly subjective one. No two relationships look the same considering no two people are exactly the same, so approaching a relationship with an objective mindset isn’t going to work out well. While relationships are subjective in terms of their composition, there are things within relationships that are, in fact, … More The significance of understanding boundaries in relationships

Here is why we need to stop comparing our own hardships to others

Hardships, among other negative occurrences in life, are inevitable. It’s a bit of a harsh reality, but its validity remains constant; life isn’t a walk in the park for the majority of us, and it is highly probable that we will encounter situations at times we rather wouldn’t. Hardships and obstacles can take many different … More Here is why we need to stop comparing our own hardships to others
