I am a second year graduate student in speech language pathology, a diagnosed Celiac, and an obsessive list maker (I own and use 3 planners... just saying) checking my dreams off my list one at a time. I work 2 part time jobs, as a clinic aide and an ABA therapist. When I get time off I like to unwind with a run, some yoga, good music, bubble baths, and wine :)
The driving force behind everything here is wellness in all of its forms. I'm a firm believer in whole body wellness, you can't live your life to the fullest if you don't take care of yourself mind, body and soul.
This means keeping your body healthy with good nutrition and regular exercise. It means staying informed of what goes into your body, and staying realistic about what you expect out of it. Life is a balancing act and your health is no different. The key here is consistency. It's building healthy habits and routines and then sticking to them. It's learning to listen to your body and not the latest trend. It is not easy, but you are worth it!
This is is the one that is most often pushed to the side to be dealt with later, or worse forgotten about completely. Emotions are messy they bring us from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, often with little warning. But emotions are human, they are what drive every decision we make and at the end of the day they make it all worthwhile. Ignoring your emotions, bottling them up or shoving them into some dark corner of your mind or heart, is one of the most toxic things you can do to your body because you are limiting your ability to truly live. Emotions are messy but you know what, so is life, so might as well embrace the chaos.
This is life, as real as it gets, and I'm here to share my little slice of it. So what are you waiting for?
Let's get living!
