You will be genuinely happy... I promise.

You are probably reading this because you are discouraged, confused, hurt, along with many other feelings. And that is okay, we have all been there. But I just want to take a moment and encourage you to keep your head up. Sometimes in life we have speed bumps that may seem as big as boulders. We sit and wonder will this ever pass? Will I ever smile again without hurting on the inside? For many years up until this point I was broken, completely shattered on the inside. I always found myself trying to help others when I needed help myself. I would always try to make others feel better when I was at my breaking point. Nothing seemed to turn around for me until I realized how important self care is. I removed myself from toxic relationships and environments. I took a step back to see what it was in my life that was making me feel less than. When you do this it really will open your eyes to see what is causing you so much pain. Once you see where your pain originates from. Change your path. Whether that's ending a toxic relationship with a significant other or distancing yourself from toxic family members. Do it, just simply do it. From personal experience I distanced my self from the source of my pain, and now my life is flourishing. I have rekindled relationships with family members and friends. I am working a job that I enjoy. I am also so in love with my best friend and we are about to get our own home together. So when you feel stuck just know it won't last forever. You will be genuinely happy. And this quote is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. "There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world - because you realize there's so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on." Therefore, it is important to do what is best for you whether people approve of it or not. This is your life. You know what is best for you and remember self love takes strength.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
