This past month I have really been trying to better myself by focusing on my health, food and minimalizing. I have also been working on becoming a better writer and being more organised. I actually just bought my first bullet journal yesterday so I’m pretty excited to start writing in it and following it. I have had all these great ideas and things I have been wanting to do last month so that I can better my life and become healthier in every way but like most New Year’s Resolutions, mine are not going very well. I’ve decided to start keeping and writing down my monthly goals so I can keep on top of everything. Now that you know a little bit about my goals and focuses from January, here is my February! Some of these will probably overlap too.

I have talked about living with depression and anxiety before but I haven’t really talked about the symptoms that are associated with them or at least the embarrassing ones. Any of the symptoms associated with these mental illnesses can be and probably will be very debilitating but when you suffer from some of the more embarrassing ones, that debilitating feeling becomes one hundred times worse. They can turn your life upside down that little bit quicker and make that day so much harder than it already is. I have experienced a fair few of these symptoms myself and still deal with some of them to this day. There is nothing worse than not being able to control your mind or your body.

Many of us have seen or at least heard of the website ‘Art of Manliness‘. One of their most notable posts is about the ‘100 skills every man should know‘. Well, what about us women? I’ve put together my list of 100 skills every woman should know or should at least have some knowledge of.

We see a lot of articles and photos promoting body positivity and how it is okay to be fat or ‘plus sized’. And, then you see the people who are so against all of that who ‘fat shame’ them instead. You see a photo of a plus-sized model or woman who talks about how she is beautiful even though she is at least a size 26. And, if you look at the comments of that photo you will usually be inundated with ‘You go girl!’, ‘Ignore the haters, they’re just jealous’, or ‘You’re so beautiful and an inspiration to us all’, but then there will be that small group of people saying ‘You’re disgusting’, ‘Lose weight’ or worse. Now, I’m all for body positivity, I envy those who love their body and embraces it, but I also support fat shaming. I’m not talking about the fat-shaming that is severely cruel or bullying, I’m talking about the fat shaming that says yes you are beautiful but it is not okay to promote obesity, and being obese is definitely not good for your health either.

I always love when the authors of lifestyle and personal blogs post information about themselves as well as their regular posts. I find that it’s a great way to get to know the author a little better and to remember that they are also just a regular person like the rest of us. I love reading about what makes that person special or what makes them motivated. I also love being able to see a little bit of their personality in their other posts and why what they write about is important to them. Reading those sort of posts gives me a little bit of confidence and motivation to continue with my blog or with my other hobbies and dreams because I can see that I don’t need to be something extra special or a certain type of person to follow and actually complete my goals and aspirations, no matter how big or how small. Here are 10 random facts about me.

Some of you may know that Gilly and I are moving interstate soon. (If you didn’t then you can read my first ‘moving’ entry here) To be honest, we have been slacking off a little bit with packing and preparing. In light of this, I still made a moving checklist and we are now starting to focus on the whole process again. Some of these things are pretty straightforward while some might not even pop into your mind at all. So, here’s my checklist for moving house! (this is definitely not in any logical order).

Smoking is pretty bad, right? Of course, it is. There have been countless studies on the effects of smoking and how bad it is for our health, especially in the long term where it can cause lung cancer, heart attacks and strokes. Australia has been a big no-smoking advocate for years now, to the point where they are constantly bumping up the price for a pack of cigarettes and going as far as trying to ban smoking everywhere except your own backyard. Every time some media outlet talks about smoking there is comment after comment condemning those who do smoke, some even telling smokers to kill themselves because they are trash and are going to die anyway. People constantly talk about the health risks and that smoking is the devil. Continue reading “My stance on the problem: Smoking”
