Sleep solutions, especially for empaths
18 January 2022 Some things I learned along the way, and I want to share with you all; written especially for empaths. This story here is for everyone whose eyes come across it. But at the foothold of this story is the remembrance of how though we are all one, let’s just be real here; we all have different sleep schedules. So to know ourselves before we begin this journey, will be the most important thing. As Liv said in the tarot reading I shouldn’t be watching at 01:06 the morning before this is due: “If you don’t like what I say, chuck it away” so just take what you resonate with and leave what you don’t.
1330 Miles By Car
I love a good airport reunion. Show me the video of a veteran returning home to a cheering crowd at the airport and this ice queen will melt every time. Throw man's best friend into the "Welcome" crew, tail wagging jumping into their favorite human's arms and forget about it. Ugly crying like a softy every time.
My Top 10 Truths for 2022
Many years ago, I began a "diet" that quickly spiraled into disordered eating comfortably disguised as a New Year's resolution. Undoing what damage I could and rebuilding a healthy relationship with food after the fact was neither quick nor easy. After a grueling healing process—which admittedly is ongoing—I resolved to ban resolutions of any kind. (Yes, I recognize the irony.) I was utterly convinced that I was one of many for whom resolutions were bound to fail.
Sweet Lies Before Bed
Hi, I'm Alvin. I'm a 26-year-old entrepreneur, and I suffer from anxiety. I didn't always feel this way. Just two years ago, I was as happy and as carefree as a lamb. I ran a successful sports event business. Life was calm and peaceful and good...then, everything changed when the fire nation attacked coronavirus struck.
Dreams of a Dream-Keeper
I am the first child born in the United States in my mother's family. My mother and the rest of her generation arrived here as children; they grew up speaking English and attending public schools. My mother's generation was expected to go to college and strive for prestigious jobs that would grant them stability: engineer, lawyer, doctor. Teacher was okay; professor was better.
I rise early, while the world sleeps
I come from a family of early risers. My grandma wakes up early, my mom wakes up early, even on the weekends. When they have nothing to do or nowhere to go, they probably subconsciously understand the importance of it, without realizing it.
The 20 Greatest Best Picture Winners of All-Time
In view of the upcoming 94th Academy Awards, I decided to compile a small list. Having officially watched every single film to take home the prestigious Best Picture award, here is what I deemed were the 20 best to ever win it. (I limited it to presenting my top 20 since to say a word on all 93 films would prove tedious, and I also opted not to include Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans which would assuredly have been in my top 5).
The Ultimate Guide To Deciding Whether You Should Have Kids
"I don't want my life to change right now but that stupid biological clock is ticking." "Parenting seems so hard and tiring but then why do all these people do it?"

For as long as I knew her, Mama seemed to have two sides to her: light and dark. The light version of Mama was happy, carefree, and affectionate. She helped me with my homework and we danced together in the kitchen to ABBA while baking lemon bread. She smelled like cinnamon and her eyes actually lit up when she smiled.
The Seven Year Old's Perfect Day
"What are you new years resolutions?" That used to be me, popping into your DM's like a fire-cracker, and daring you to tempt me with a dizzying display of your new-years resolution list, fully kitted with task prioritisation and plans for your quarterly follow-ups. You got that down? I expect it in my inbox by Monday.
This Is Why the Konmari Method Didn’t Work for My Neurodivergent Brain
When it comes to decluttering, I’ve tried everything. For most of my life, I failed at keeping my home tidy. I have Asperger’s syndrome and ADD. Like many people with ADHD, I often get excited about new things. A few years ago, I read Marie Kondos’ book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I was hooked. I completely immersed myself in the Konmari method.
Making Fabric from Metal
In medieval and ancient times, almost everything was either made by hand or with a limited amount of hand tools and pure elbow grease(this is fairly obvious, upon retrospect, since they used to call it the dark ages). From furniture to fabrics, carpentry to metalworking, laborers and skilled artisans alike had no electricity nor any advanced machinery to help them create their vision.
How to Fly with Two Wheels
Dear Stranger, You ask why I bike fast. Maybe you didn’t exactly ask, but your tone told me your comment was a question. Humans have long envied birds. We have an instinctive hunger to experience the unknown and push the limits of impossibility. In this instance, it manifests in a desire to harness the wind. We see the birds wheeling above; we see trees bending and snapping under the strength of simple air. And we want it. Children fly kites and make paper airplanes – when they grow up, they build jets and helicopters and hang gliders.
Three Affordable Electric Cars That Won’t Cost The Earth
Electric cars are the future of green travel. But many of the most popular electric cars currently on the market are, let’s face it, a little on the pricey side, with an average cost of £44,000.
My Big Adventure in Iceland
With my husband being more of an adrenaline junkie than me, I often push myself out of my comfort zone when planning our travels. And our December Iceland trip was no exception to the rule.
Venison Pepper Soup
Venison Pepper Soup is a hearty comfort food recipe made with peppers, ground venison, tomatoes, onions, garlic, oregano, basil, and rice and often topped with cheddar cheese or sour cream. It is very similar to stuffed bell peppers but much easier to make. It is the ideal soup for cold weather.
