Better Together: The Importance of a Romantic Getaway
As a couple, my boyfriend and I have been in a work fog. Up at 6am, out the door by 7:30, and then we donâ€™t see each other for about 12 hours between work and commutes. Most days, I feel like I wake up, go…
We all have a fire inside us that burns bright. That fire is your passion. For some of us, especially creative types, there are multiple fires each wanting your focus and attention. While have all these passions is amazing, it can often times leave us feeling exhausted and confused. If you ever wondered why creative people are so screwed up, now you know. We have a million voices, projects, and ideas in our brains all day and we never know where to start. But thatâ€™s not necessarily a bad thing. We just need to learn to focus on one thing at a time, come up with a plan, and find an outlet for all that energy.
Love With Your Whole Heart
Love. Love is the craziest of all feelings. What I find strange about it is that it can be as all consuming as grief and hurt just as much. For those of us who have incredibly open hearts, life can sometimes suck. Loving people and things with your whole heart, with every fiber of our beings, can leave us extremely vulnerable and susceptible to unbelievable pain when this kind of love is not returned… but I wouldnâ€™t live my life any other way. This kind of love has allowed me to help myself, and most of all, help others. I always say, â€œgive of yourself, if and when you can.â€ Giving to charity is something that is very important to me, but Iâ€™m not a Rockefeller, so monetary donations canâ€™t happen as often as I’d like, but what I can give all the time is LOVE.
