    How to Have Fights that Strengthen Your Relationship

    Fighting is never fun; It is exhausting, time consuming and at time overwhelming. When you feel passionately about something, or your feelings are hurt, it is natural to take a stand and make it known that whatever is happening it not okay with you. If you learn to face conflict and work towards a resolution, fighting can be beneficial to your relationship and even strengthen your relationship. Letting your partner know you are upset, is important information for them to have.  “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” Jon Kabat-Zinn Decide If It is Your Partner Making You Mad Sometimes there are other things going on…

    Why is No One Coming After Jay-z?

    The witch hunt continues in the pursuit for ‘Becky with the good hair’. The Bey-hive have been swarming, at an alarming rate. First attacking Rachel Roy, and accidentally involving innocent bystander Rachael Ray, then proceeding on to Rita Ora as a possible candidate. I am not sure why “who the other women is”, is the main topic of the discussion. The thought that I have is why is the other women being target and not Jay-z. Jay-z has the greater obligation to Beyonce, he is the father of her child and the love of her life. Compared to the comments on Rachel’s Instagram account, Jay-z is getting off easy. He…

    Grumpy Young Men – How to Deal

    Over the years, I have noticed that most of the men in my life are grumpy to one degree or another. My boyfriend is no exception. When he is in a good mood, he is charming and everyone enjoys his company. With the good, comes the bad, some days, he just gets in these moods, where he has a negative perspective on everything, and the most trivial things set him off. He is probably the grumpiest young person I know. My girlfriends and I joke about it. It seems to be a common thread between us, that the men we date get a little testy. I did some research and I…

    The Mid-Twenties – Getting Through That Awkward Stage

    I have seen the same someecard countless time that says: “I’m at that awkward stage where half my friends are having babies and the other half are too drunk to find their phones” This is, in a nutshell, how I feel about my mid to late twenties. Heading to the bar is not as comforting as it used to be and hanging out with children is another outing,I could probably do without. Finding a place in your mid-twenties is harder, because you’re less willing to put up with people’s none-sense and your time is valuable.  Being on the Same Page I felt lost when I first turned 24. Majority of my friends, would…

    I’m Turning Off My Television

    On Monday, I realized that I have a problem. I was out for the night and got home late. Instead of getting ready for bed and being responsible, I stayed up for almost two hours watching ‘The Bachelor’, and followed by the ‘Final Rose Ceremony’. I knew that if I found out the winner in the morning on social media, I would not be happy. The next morning I woke up exhausted. Daylights savings and starting off a busy work week with sleep deprivation, I immediately regretted my decision. I re-winded through most of the episode, and hated every moment of watching it, I just wanted to get through it. Why did I feel such a commitment…

    Why I am Mad at Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose

    Quite a few websites that I respect and value posted articles of how proud they are of Kim Kardashian for standing up for herself in her open letter. She stated that she is proud of her body and she is embracing her sexuality. How it is liberating and she should not be slut shamed.I am glad that she stood up for herself and I am not trying to bully her, but there is a misuse when it comes to using the word “slut shaming”. Society has confused women into believing there is a correlation between “empowerment” as “sexuality” or vise versa. I am sure there are moms all over the world that are…

    Stop Hating Valentine’s Day

    There are some arguments I can get behind for hating Valentine’s Day. I can totally understand that it is an over-commercialized holiday that reminds singles that they are alone and forces people in relationships to buy overpriced flowers and expensive gifts for one another. Despite all the negative press and the groans I hear when I mention Cupid’s favourite day, I am an advocate for Valentine’s Day. Before you huck your computer at the wall and stop reading, just hear me out.I have always thought as Valentine’s Day as a day where you can show the important people in your life you care about them. The reason I love Valentine’s Day is much…

    Goal Setting for 2016

    2016 is in 13 days! New Years signifies new beginnings for most people and I would like to think that I try to evolved and grow as the years go by. New Years Eve is also very special to me because three years ago it was the day that my current boyfriend and I had our first kiss.

    End of Year Check In

    As a quick end of the year check in, I read through my blog post that I posted for my goals for 2015. It is a little bit cringe worthy, I hope my writing style has evolved considerably since that post. I can’t believe there is only a few weeks left in 2015. The years after 25, seem to be considerably more stressful; I am constantly counting down the days until 30. It doesn’t help that growing up, I had pictured my life differently, and now with only a little over two years out from turning 30, having children is still something I would like to keep on the back burner. Looking…
