Thoughts with Mikaela- a series

Part 2 Beauty is the way you hold yourself, how you treat others, how you love, the way you love others and yourself. It is self acceptance. It is grace. Beauty is in your soul. Our soul often enough knows what to do, how to heal itself, to search for the good, to be resilient……

Thoughts With Mikaela- a series

Part One What does a perfect morning look like to you? Does your mind instantly go to those Instagram pictures you have saved of that perfect aesthetic room with plants and mirrors and breakfast in bed? Or snuggled with your partner under blankets just enjoying each other’s company? The sound of gentle rain while soft…

Our Earth

I had a few lines just come to me the other day for a poem and I wanted to write them down before I forgot them. They then formed into a little poem. I rarely ever write poetry… I’ll write the occasional haiku here or there, sometimes a sappy love song that never sees the…

Be Selfish

It is not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary. It’s okay to say no, walk away, cancel plans, take a break, love yourself, change your mind. You need to be true to YOURSELF! Being a giver and a people pleaser can be so satisfying…

What Inspires You?

What inspires you to get up each morning? To start the day off on the right track? To consciously stay in that headspace, that mindset, of positivity and love… What grounds you each day, each moment… Are you working towards constantly growing, constantly evolving or are you stuck in place? What inspires you? Who inspires…

Journals

So I wanted to share different types of journals we can all make and keep during this time we are laying low at home. Journals are great ways to take up time. To write down thoughts, goals, ideas, dreams…. draw in and craft in. The list is endless and then looking back through journals and…

Don’t Lose Your Joy

It is so easy to get overwhelmed and feel like we are being held under the water struggling to breath during this time of craziness. The unknown of what tomorrow or even later today can bring leaves a dazed look in many a person’s eye and an unneeded tension. I see so many quotes, so…

An Open Mind

With all that’s going on in our world and all the panic being created through the media and the hoarding it’s hard to take a step back sometimes and look for the lessons or silver linings in all of this. Every day I read even more notes filled with panic, dire and dark news. These…

Spring Meal Ideas

I ran a poll and questionnaire on my instagram about a week ago asking what people wanted to hear about on my blog. I had one person ask if I would share ten of my top or ten popular spring foods and meals. I thought that could be a fun thing to maybe get our…

Overcoming Depression During Social Distancing

With all the craziness going on in the world and then the fact most of us are social distancing ourselves our mental health can definitely be affected during this time. The uncertainty of our world and all the regular normal everyday things being taken away from us can definitely take a toll on our state…

Take Care of our Minds

Where is the place that we live the most in? Where is that one spot we always return to and often can get stuck in? Where is that one place where we are most ourselves and no one can truly enter or know how we are feeling? It’s not a physical spot.. no it is…

Share Some Extra Kindness

Let’s be honest for a second (or more than a second)…. 2020 has not been the best year out there for so many reasons. It seems like everywhere we turn some disaster is happening…. The media is splashing front pages with stories of sickness, wars, politics, hate, etc…. There just seems to be something new…
