Motivation Monday #8 // “You never say yes to anything.”

Hey Guys!
Happy Monday, no blues round here!

If you follow me on Instagram you’d know that I finally got two books that have been on my Book List for months now. Well, since I watched GirlBoss on Netflix and got the gist of it I decided to start with Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes.

Even though I’m pretty sure I can read through this book quickly, I decided to take my time with it. Lo and behold the first chapter already brought me inspiration, which is why you’re now reading this.

85 Years of Growth

Two Sundays ago I attended a Thanksgiving Service on behalf of the Girl Guides Association of Antigua and Barbuda. It was their 85th Anniversary under the theme GROW.

Hey April!

Hey guys!

Welcome to a new month.  I like the feel of new months, because I think they’re a chance for a fresh start. As cliché as it may sound it’s a great time for a new beginning; forget all about what went wrong last month and focus on the current moment. All the goals you made at the beginning of the year, continue to work on them and set individual steps to reach them. Continue reading “Hey April!”

5 Lessons of Blogging (+ tips)

Hey Guys,

Before we get into today’s post here are a few facts:

I’ve been blogging on and off for about three years now *whoa*.

I’ve had about three name changes finally sticking with ATBA.

When I first decided to start blogging I had no idea what I was doing.
(I don’t even recall doing research or anything; I just jumped and signed up on WordPress.)

I wish I could I remember my first post to share it with you guys, but overtime I’ve gone back to the earlier years and cleaned up some posts. Reading over old posts really makes you see how much you’ve grown and the way in which things change.

Anyway enough chit chatter here are my 5 Lessons of Blogging.

Daily Reminder

Hey Guys!!

Today I wasn’t really feeling myself and decided to find an old journal I had to review the pages. It’s a journal from 2014 when I was just getting into the process of blogging/finding myself. I wrote a lot about different things happening in my life along with my goals for upcoming years. Basically, I wanted to look back at past stuff to see whether I was really growing or if any changes were actually happening in my life. Sometimes the reminders are good to show you that your life do has meaning and you’ll get through this.

Flipping through the pages I also found a little poem (words I wrote) which I wanted to share; as it needs to be not only a daily reminder for me, but for others as well.

Journey to Self-Love

Hey Loves!!

Lately the idea of “self-love” has been prevalent in today’s society from music to movies and even advice given to one another. How often have you heard “If you don’t love yourself, how do you expect someone else to?” or “go love yourself girl or nobody else will?”

But what exactly is “self-love“? I think it’s pretty self-explanatory, but according to Merriam Webster dictionary it is the regard for one’s own happiness or advantage.

here's a thought to consider. self-love.: Continue reading “Journey to Self-Love”

Anxiety = My Life

anxiety (1)

First off, I haven’t actually been diagnosed with anxiety by a professional. However it’s the only way to explain my life. For as long as I’ve known myself fear has been a part of me therefore causing anxiety.

There’s the fear of heights – what if I fall? Fear of flying – what if the plane crashes? Fear of enclosed spaces – what if i get trapped? Fear of speaking in front of a crowd – what if they don’t like me? what if they laugh at me? It was always something and trust me to have a ‘what if’ question.

Why was I like this? What made me this way?

But that wasn’t all. Continue reading “Anxiety = My Life”
