The Rising Sun
On September 23rd 2018, I began my spiritual journey for the better. Embarking on this spiritual journey wasn't going to be simple. I needed necessary support, resources, knowledge, and an answer to my question, "Why am I on this spiritual journey?" The answer was, "I am tired of suffering and feeling badly about myself. I moved out of my family's home, it is a new beginning to a chapter of my life, and I needed to climb the ladder to success". I knew it wasn't going to be something that I was going to master overnight. I knew that I was going to have some bumps in the road, but I told myself that I was going to keep working on this until I gained the necessary knowledge, supports, skills and the understanding I need to continue and end my journey to improved spiritual wellbeing.
Let's Get Physical: A Workout Playlist of Upbeat Music
Since I was young, I could never engage in any form of physical activity without music. Whether I am walking, completing household tasks, doing cardio workouts or dancing, I am always attached to my iPhone or iPad where I can enjoy listening to music. When I have music on, I feel more motivated to exercise and stay active, as opposed to when I am not listening to music.
High School Survival Guide
High school is an exciting but challenging time for many people. Teenagers are experiencing puberty, relationship problems, family issues, a new environment, obnoxious teachers, lots of homework and assignments to complete, and work problems. That is a lot for a teenager to handle at one time.
Personal Self Care for Young Adults with ASD
As an individual with Autism and Anxiety, I value the importance of daily self care. When I don't squeeze some self-care into my day, I will become easily overwhelmed. One of the symptoms of Autism is trouble concentrating. I am prone to panic attacks and will experience high degrees of stress, so it is critical for me to practice all kinds of self care.
Sweethearts Dessert Combo
Although I am not a drinker myself, I decided to join this contest just for the fun of it! Since I have an enormous sweet tooth, including red-wine infused cupcakes would an impeccable idea. Even if I don't imbibe the actual glass of red-wine, a bite of a red-wine infused chocolate cupcakes with baby pink frosting and chocolate drizzle is worth the attempt! Having a small amount of wine in pastries is worth the try for me. Large amouts of wine would make me nauseous, and is not worth the risk for me. My stepmother, my grandfather and step grandmother really enjoy drinking wine as a treat, so I think they will definitely enjoy this incredible dessert combination. My grandfather was an event planner and a wine enthusiast, so he would absolutely benefit from the beauty of wine and dessert, and would enjoy reading up on this blog!
Why Strawberries are Nutritious and Healthy

Health and Leisure for All: Let’s Talk about Dance, Baby!
Meaning of Dance Dance is a common kind of performing arts that consists of the fluid, rhythmic, and aesthetic movements to the sound of music. Dance is not just a form of self expression, but also a creative and engaging way for people of all ages, abilities, cultures and genders to keep fit and stay mentally and physically healthy for life.

As a seasonal recreation provider and recreation and leisure services student at Seneca College in Canada, I have developed a strong belief in all of the mental, psychological, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual and physical health benefits of active and regular participation in recreational programming and activities.
Bakers Special: Sugar-Free Grasshopper Pie Recipe
My passion for creating sugar-free, ketogenic and guilt-free desserts increased during the later months of the pandemic, as I continue to lose weight and overcome sugar addiction. After gaining inspiration from my stepmother who loves to cook and bake, several instagram accounts that focus on health, nutrition and flexible dieting, and searching for several sugar-free recipes of some of my favourite desserts and undiscovered desserts that I want to try, I started to gain satisfaction in sugar-free baking. I have an in-home baking business that I am putting on hold for the remainder of the pandemic, and until I am ready to obtain my food handlers certification, so constantly being on the hunt for sugar-free, ketogenic and guilt-free recipes is helping me prepare and perfect my baking skills in the meantime. Although I am not practicing the full ketogenic diet, I believe that incorporating some keto-friendly desserts and snacks are making it more simple for me to overcome sugar addiction, which means that I don't have to depend on snacks and desserts that contain refined sugar like Oreos and Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream every night, and regret having dessert after! I can enjoy dessert while managing to lose weight, look after my health and at the same time, be happy!
The Haunted Scrapbook
When I was in the 10th grade, I took a photography class at my high school in North York, Ontario. After discovering that one of my teachers was a passionate photographer, I decided to pursue photography, not thinking that it would develop into such a passion that I developed as an adult. I thought I was just going to pursue it for the sake of trying something new, because I was keen on exploring a new form of visual arts. At first, the photgraphy class was not stimulating enough and less engaging, until I got the opportunity to do class projects later on in the course. I enjoyed creating my own pictogram, which was my first assignment that I ended up completing successfully.
My Hair, My Rules
Growing up, I never had one length or style that I would keep. My mom always favoured my mid-back length, golden wavy hair, because it looked more feminine and modern in her eyes. On the contrary, my dad was not as picky about hair length or style, unless it was outrageous, inappropriate or immodest. Whether I had straight, chin length hair or wavy hair that touched the bottom of my shoulders, he didn’t care as much as my mom did. As a little girl, my mom or the nanny would always put my hair up in pigtails, half-ponytails, ponytails or I would wear it completely down if I was too lazy to put it up or if my mom wanted to do my hair for me one Sunday morning. My mom never allowed me to have bangs, because she assumed that curly-haired people wouldn’t look appealing in bangs, even though I have always been attracted to bangs on both straight-haired and curly-haired people. The odd time, I would get my hair highlighted and colored during my childhood and adolescence. My dad did not like that, but my mom did not care if my hair was a slightly colored or highlighted. There was just something about bangs that caught my eye: that they looked mature, attractive, doll-like and at the same time youthful and modest. Sometimes, I felt too young and plain without bangs, but I couldn't be free to simply ask the hairdresser to give me bangs with my mom waiting for me in the waiting area at the hair stylist's.
