I apologize way too much. I’m one of those people you find making fun of herself because she apologizes… for apologizing. I have to admit, at times I drive Mark nuts just because I can’t stop with the “I’m sorry” every single time I do something, ask for something, or don’t do something. Even if it never mattered in the first place. Maybe I should stop being sorry for once!

When I was out shopping for groceries the other day, I noticed the scary difference in the sizes between the organic and “regular” green peppers. I didn’t want to spend the extra amount for the organic pepper, since I’m on such a tight budget, but it made me incredibly aware of how much food has grown – and not really in a good way. Apparently chickens have grown, too. (Yikes! I don’t know if I like the idea of having bloated food.)

I absolutely love these 25 self-care tips. I forget often to take extra good care of myself, which seems strange since of all the people in the world, I’m with myself the most. But I tend to let things slide, and beat myself up over small things (like grades!), and generally treat myself worse than I’d treat my best friend – and sometimes even my worst enemy! I think it’s time to fix this, don’t you?

Ironically, the next awesome post I found was about why we find it hard to do things that are good for us. I have less trouble with the healthy-eating-and-exercise thing than I used to, but I still don’t do so many things that I should – like a lot of the ones on the list above! An important step in starting to do the right thing is finding out why you haven’t been doing it all along, though, so this is a fantastic read.

I’m more of a math and logic girl, but science is actually a ton of fun, too. One of my favourite classes in high school was my physics class – but maybe that’s because we were able to take a field trip to Cedar Point and try to measure different things while watching the rides – before riding them! Anyway, my inner nerd was really happy to find this post about a Slinky. I immediately wanted to go out and buy one and play with it! I know it’s mostly an optical illusion (like the comment below the image says) but it’s still wicked.

I know that a lot of women will say that Audrey Hepburn is their favourite actress of all time, and admit that I’m no different. While I haven’t seen all eight of these classic Audrey Hepburn movies, I hope to see them all someday! There’s just something about her grace and elegance that makes me want to act the same way. Amazing!

  1. I love those 25 Self-Care tips! I’m a habitual ‘glass is half empty’ kind of person but I’ve been really working on turning that around, and these are definitely up my alley. Thank you 🙂

    • I love them, too! I’m like you – always looking for the worst-case-scenario. It drives Mark nuts, since he’s a ‘glass half empty’ type, but I like to be prepared (or overprepared) just in case things go horribly wrong!

      It’s important to sit back and intentionally take care of yourself, though. It’s so easy to get lost in your own shuffle. <3
