Dear Boys That I've "Talked To" ...

Narrated by Taylor Swift

Dear Boys That I've "Talked To" ...

Similar to Taylor Swift, I am that girl who "goes on too many dates". So when I first heard Taylor's new song, "the 1", all about ex-flames who didn't work out, I STARTED BLASTING IT!!!

The lyrics got me thinking and some of them really resonated with me and my experiences. So here it goes, an open letter to all the boys I've talked to, as told by Taylor.

To start off, I know from the start that we were different. We never painted by the numbers baby, but we were making it count. We had our fun together, and it was worth it. But for some reason, it just didn't work.

If one thing had been different, would everything be different today? Maybe we could have worked together after all, but I guess you never know. I can't stay caught up on the what-ifs because after all, you know the greatest loves of all time are over now.

Though I say I can't get caught up on you, I think about you a lot. But in my defense, I have none because, at the end of the day, we were something, don't you think so? I really think that it would have been fun if you would've been the 1. We could be sitting around, rosé flowing with your chosen family. It would have been sweet.

But I guess that it's just another day of waking up alone. I keep telling myself that if you never bleed, you're never gonna grow. Maybe, all you are meant to be for me is a lesson.

Since we haven't been together, I have this dream you're doing cool shit. Or maybe last night you met some woman on the internet and took her home. It doesn't matter to me, I'm doing good, I'm on some new shit. You taught me how to move on with my life and enjoy the little things.

Even though things didn't work, and if my wishes came true, it would have been you, I'm doing fine without you. Thanks for our fling, it taught me a lot. I hope that this letter doesn't dig up the grave another time.


Your "Ex"

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
