Are you a hot mess who struggles in almost every aspect of your life? Me too! High Five! Let’s be friends.
I was one of the clueless young adults that thought live after college would be a breeze. Get a job, start a career, have a successful relationship, be financially stable. HA. Now I look back on my college days wishing to relive them. Fast forward to five years later and I’ve spent the better part of a week looking for side hustles just so I can afford to live and don’t even ask about my love life.
One issue with dating in your 20’s is that there is probably a 50/50 chance that one or both of you is broke AF. I like to blame this mostly on student loans and the outrageous price of mixed drinks at bars. But you shouldn’t let this stop you from having frequent date nights! After you’ve been with someone for a while, date nights can come few and far between. So check out my post about the importance of making time for date night then head back over here for some cheap ideas!
After a breakup I prefer to wallow in my dark and stormy feelings. I think it can be invigorating and beneficial to give into your sad feelings for a bit. So I’ve spent plenty of time over the last few weeks listening to sad songs and reading somber quotes. But eventually I believe you need to crawl out of your dark cave and take time to laugh. So if you’re in the same situation and need a little chuckle, scroll on for a few quotes.
Who doesn’t love a good booty-shakin’ song? I often refer to myself as a terrible dancer but that doesn’t stop me from dancing my little heart out and you can never have too many dance tunes! Whether you’re at the club with your girls, in the car, or alone in your living room, dancing will always improve your mood. And considering it is a form of exercise, you’re releasing all of those amazing endorphins. It’s a win-win.
I felt this would be a fitting topic for me to write about considering I am currently going through a breakup. In fact, I took some time away from this blog to process through all of my emotions and figure out how to carry on (dramatic much?). All relationships are different and come with their fair share of problems, regardless, the heartbreak can be deafening. There are numerous ways to help yourself move on after a breakup and it is different for everyone. I wish chocolate and wine solved all problems, unfortunately we are not that lucky.
It took me a long time to realize that I had a problem…an eating disorder. I knew my eating habits were unhealthy, but never realized that it had a name – binge eating. Now that I know I have a problem with binge eating, I am trying to tackle it and start my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Since it took me so long to come the realization that I was a binge eater, I wanted to write a post about some definite signs for anyone else who is struggling.
