Nobody Is Harder On Us Than Ourselves

Let's remember that we are allowed to make mistakes, and we should always welcome those mistakes as a chance to better ourselves. Failure is an inescapable part of life, but without it we would never really succeed or become who we are meant to be. Whether that's a bestselling author or a world famous scientist or just someone who's really good at applying liquid eyeliner. Hell, why not all three? We are capable of much more than we give ourselves credit for, but it's a process, and that's ok.

Celebrating Mother's Day Without A Mother

I want to remember how lucky I am to have had her in my life in the first place, if only for four months, and for that to be enough. It's always going to be difficult; in fact, it's really, really hard, but I'm willing to try.

Mental Health Education For Children

We need to keep talking, educating and pushing for change. Mental health conditions can be terrifying and isolating, and no child should have to face that alone.

The Pressure To Be Positive

There is a difference between using your voice for good and just using it to be hateful; it is very important to know the difference, but just because something has negative undertones doesn't mean it should be automatically disregarded. I think that that is one of the most dangerous things we as human beings can do.
