Ever since I started recognizing my anxiety and depression for what it really was, an actual illness, I started to realize that I needed to take care of myself, not just physically but emotionally and mentally as well. This was, and continues to be, a battle, and you cannot go into a battle without armor.
Once that realization hit, I started to google, pin and research different types of self-care and what it boiled down to is that it is all about finding what works best for you. So I decided to share with y'all some tips and what I usually do for when I am having a not-so-great day.
After a long, and when I say long I mean loooonnnngggggg, semester, I am officially coming back to my baby! You may have noticed that this entire semester (middle of January through beginning of May), there were not many blog posts on here. My life got kind of busy and hectic and Sweet Tea & Storms took a backseat (unfortunately) to everything.
Someone once said "If you are not losing friends, you are not growing up."
And that has always stuck with me because one of my hardest goodbyes ever to date was not saying goodbye to my grandparents when they passed on or when I said goodbye to my childhood home once I moved out.
It was when I realized that I lost several great friends that I that I would have for the rest of my life-hell we had made plans for the rest of our life!
Wasn't 2015 just ending and 2016 just starting? Now it is 2017 and I am so lost.
The first year was filled with acceptance. The second? Rejuvenation.
On the fifth day of Blogmas, my true love gave to me...
5 Hooooolllliiidddaaayyy Movies
A time traveling machine,
The gift just for me,
A candle that was catered just for me
And a quuuessst for the perfect Christmas Treeeee.
