Thank You Mommy

No one can love like a mother does.

Thank You Mommy

In honor of Mother's Day I would like to dedicate this article to my amazing mother, and all the other mothers in the world. There are so many things our mothers do for us, and I honestly think it's impossible to complete that list, but here is my attempt at acknowledging three of the most important things mothers do.

1: Thank you mom, for giving me life.

It's a scientific fact that I wouldn't be who I am without you. You went through how ever many months carrying me around in you followed by however many hours of labor to bring me into this world, which was then followed by however many years of making me one of your top priorities. You raised me to do good, to believe in myself, and I strive each and every day to make you proud.

For the mothers who did not carry their child, or did but lost their angel along the way, do not think for a second that you aren't worth thanking. I know nothing about being a mother, but I do know that being a mother is more than being pregnant and giving birth. It's about raising your child right and making sure they are living a good life.

2: Thank you mom, for holding me when I cry.

From when I was an infant who was tired, to a toddler with a scraped knee, to a teenager who had their first heartbreak, to an adult who has no idea what the hell is going on, you've always been there with your arms wide open. You have never hesitated to be there for me, and I cannot believe I am lucky enough to have you in my life.

3: Thank you mom, for being the most important teacher.

No one has taught me to accept myself the way I am, to respect myself and others, and the value of life the way you have. You sat down with me and talked things through with me, and worked with me until I understood the importance of whatever lesson it was I needed to learn.

There is an overwhelming amount of other things my mother has done for me and it would be impossible to list everything. I hope one day I can be an amazing parent like you; even if I were to be a fraction as inspirational as you, I would be spectacular. Thank you mom. And although you deserve more than this article, I hope it sheds at least some light onto how perfect I see you to be. You deserve the world, because that's what you are to me.

Whether you're in a Zoom session or live-chatting, make sure your home therapy space is good to go.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.
