This is why it’s so important to know our worth

I would argue that a majority of us underestimate ourselves. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as this mindset can often lead to moments in which we happily surprise and prove ourselves wrong, but it can be a hindering practice as it somewhat works against the concept of knowing our worth, which is of tremendous … More This is why it’s so important to know our worth

How to be a better communicator

Miscommunication is something that has likely impacted all of us at some point in our lives. It’s relatively easy to unintentionally obscure a clear message while communicating, however the effects of this obscurity can have consequential outcomes, depending on the context of the situation. Misconstrued communication can result in problems in our romantic relationships, familial … More How to be a better communicator

Here’s how to calm yourself down when you’re feeling overwhelmed

I’ve been having a bit of a rough go as of late. In addition to grappling with the daily stress associated with the pandemic we’re facing, and also the variety of emotions that have presented themselves as a result of years of racially-fuelled police brutality, I’m also dealing with a bummed hand, a urinary tract … More Here’s how to calm yourself down when you’re feeling overwhelmed

Be kind

Kindness is an interesting concept. We are all aware of what kindness is and what it stands for, but I would argue a lot of us struggle to practice its meaning on a day-to-day basis, especially lately thanks to the whole pandemic and all. Because of the state of the world right now, I thought … More Be kind

Stop making someone else’s weight your business

I’m willing to bet that a lot of us are seeing or hearing about Adele’s weight loss as of late. After posting an image to her Instagram account to celebrate her 30th birthday, there was a social media frenzy regarding the singers appearance in the photo. Her photo prompted an outpouring of comments, posts and … More Stop making someone else’s weight your business

Stop buying and start looking at what you have

I’ve been hearing quite a bit about some of us who are using our monetary assistance from the government to purchase things that aren’t exactly essential. The entire concept of the emergency funding from our government is to enable those of us who are financially struggling to be able to maintain a somewhat stable lifestyle … More Stop buying and start looking at what you have

My 2019 highlights

Well, here we are facing another year, putting the previous behind us. It’s difficult to stop and seriously ponder the fact that another year has come and gone considering it seems like time is stuck in fast motion, but at the end of each year, I like to do a little bit of self-reflection and … More My 2019 highlights

Maintaining remembrance on Remembrance Day

Today is Remembrance Day, as we likely all know. A day to respect, remember, and revisit notions of significant sacrifice that were made by strangers for our own wellbeing. Remembrance Day is something we’re made aware of every year. We wear poppies, we see commercials aired on television to honour our veterans, and we stand … More Maintaining remembrance on Remembrance Day

Thank you

When I first started blogging a few years ago, I really didn’t have any sort of long-term plan. I knew wanted to post daily, and I’ve done just that. 1,132 times, to be exact. I wasn’t sure how many people my posts would reach. To date, OnTheEdgeOfEverything has earned just under 20,000 views. I didn’t … More Thank you

The beauty of books

There’s something unexplainable about holding and reading a book. I can’t exactly pinpoint what it is that gives me such joy, but having an actual text in my hands and turning its pages as I immerse myself deeper and deeper in its plot is a sensation like no other. My mom gave me an article … More The beauty of books

If I had to choose a social media platform I favour over others, it would be Instagram. I’m not sure if this preference stems from my love for photography, or the fact that I’ve always appreciated visuals, but either way, Instagram is pretty neat. I was browsing through the Explore section on Instagram about a … More Here’s why you need to follow Morgan Harper Nichols on Instagram
