Eat What You're Craving: A Lesson in Choosing Happiness


With Christmas come and gone it tis the season to start seeing peoples' New Year's resolutions posted here, there, and everywhere, one of the most popular being giving up all things sugary and fatty and hitting the gym.

Those who have followed me for quite awhile know that I'm not a big fan of making resolutions when the new year looms near; I feel if you're going to set a goal for yourself why not do it ANY day of the year instead of waiting until the end of the year for a 'new start.'

That being said however, I'm on a reading kick lately and I recently read something in a young adult book called Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter (second book in the series) that made me really stop and think. The characters were at Thanksgiving dinner with all sorts of traditional Thanksgiving foods spread about. Along with a single bowl of spaghetti.



"You did all of this?" I asked.
"Everything but the spaghetti." 
"Which you have because...."
"Of my rules. I only eat what I'm craving and I was craving my dad's spaghetti."

5 Reasons Traveling with the Microsoft Surface Pro is a Game Changer + Offer & Giveaway

You know that feeling when you start falling in love? Everybody who has been in love knows that I'm talking about; Just the mere mention of them brings a big smile to your face that ultimately hurts your cheeks. The anticipation of seeing them face to face simultaneously gives you unstoppable butterflies and makes your heart race. They're the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning and the last thing on your mind when you go to bed.

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about.

While falling in love with a person is romantic and grand, in this particular context I'm actually not referring to a person at all...

This is exactly how I feel about travel. Just the mere mention of traveling fills me with so much emotion it's hard to keep it contained; I'm continuously falling in love with the world and all it's endless possibilities.






Hence my obvious transition to a travel website! Of course with limited funds and health issues I can't just go full force into things like my heart, mind, and soul would like me to, especially with building my website back up and making a name for myself as a travel blogger.

100% Natural Pain Relief: Quell Pain Relief Technology

Disclaimer: I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.



Earlier this month we apparently had the biggest and brightest Supermoon that has appeared since 1948! My numerous social media news-feeds erupted with information on the November Supermoon and gorgeous picture after gorgeous picture snapped by friends, professional photographers, and different people from around the world.

There has always been stigma around full and new moons, especially when it comes to people becoming a little crazy or erratic with their behavior.

While some people have looked at me like I'm crazy when I bring it up, my fellow spoonies and chronically ill comrades will agree that the full moon and new moons' effects are very real for us and bring a whole new set of difficulties to our day-to-day lives.


Taken from Guam


This Supermoon was absolutely beautiful and majestic but boy did it really amp up my pain level for several days! Depending on the person, thankfully we only have to deal with that enhanced level once, maybe twice a month for a few days but sadly, we do have to deal with our unending regular chronic pain every day of our lives.

Hence why we all go through many different things to find some semblance of relief even if it's only just a small amount, which is why when given the opportunity to try Quell, a drug-free wearable pain relief unit through the Chronic Illness Bloggers platform I was extremely interested, especially with me wanting to start traveling.

I Quit: Why I'm Running Away to Join the World



Change in life is inevitable.

It's not a matter of IF things will change, it's a matter of WHEN they will change and it's also a matter of what you DO with those changes that is almost as important as the changes themselves.

Some would even argue what you do with those changes, regardless of if they're good or bad, is more important.

Enhance, Regulate & Support: Honey Colony Superior CBD Oil

Disclaimer: I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.



When you or someone you love become sick, there are certain things you can do to help the process along. Have a cold? Lots of fluids, soup, and rest. Got some sort of stomach bug? More fluids, especially ginger ale to help the tummy, rest, and some OTC medicine. Ultimately you'll start feeling better within a few days and can go about your normal day to day life again.

When you or someone you love becomes chronically ill however, a lot of things change. Your symptoms won't go away in just a few days and remedies like rest, fluids, and soup just aren't going to cut it. Sometimes you have to hop from one doctor, treatment, or medication/supplement to the other for years in order to see if anything will help, even if only just a little bit.

My mom and I have heard a lot of good things about CBD oil to treat a range of different ailments throughout my healing journey and thanks to Honey Colony and their hemp CBD oil, I was finally able to give it a try after trying so many other different things over the last 12+ years!
