Blog Relaunch!

Welcome Loves! It’s been a long time since I’ve last written that I decided it was time to dust off the keys and start again! I had a vision in my mind of how I wanted things to go and let’s just say, nothing ever goes as planned.

I realized that once I started this Journey that I really never had a “niche” and I was often finding myself quickly discouraged. I became overwhelmed and just felt like I was all over the place. So I stopped. I went back n forth constantly in my mind whether or not I should continue or just stop.

The thing is, I couldn’t get this blog out of my mind. I couldn’t shake the feeling that I just couldn’t give up. I couldn’t just let it go. I just knew this was something I had to do. So I reached out and got some advice on what my next step should be.

So after doing so, I realized what my “niche” or “theme” should be.

I want this blog to be about my Journey. My Journey hasn’t been easy. But I’ve wanted to share it in hopes to inspire others.

My blog will be about Self Love and Self Care. I’ll also be covering Mental Health, Fitness, and awareness to different causes.

Along the way I will be sharing my challenges with my Mental Health of Depression, Anxiety Disorder and PTSD. I will be sharing my story.


I’ll be sharing uplifting messages and quotes to help all of us struggling to keep going. I will share ways of Self Love and Self Care. Im also going to be sharing my fitness journey. Being comfortable in your own body to me is a form of self love & self care. I haven’t felt confident in my body in so long and it’s time that I make a change. I’d love if you came along with me.

I asked on my Instagram for everyone to share an awareness that means something to them. There are so many out there that don’t get enough attention. There is such a stigma with Mental Illness that I want to break that. I want to break ALL stigmas and share awareness.

I have decided to share awareness by making bracelets. I have researched their awareness colors and I’ve added a small charm to them. Some that I have already done are

  • Mental Illness
  • Domestic Violence
  • Autism
  • Child/ Teen Sexual Assault & Abuse.
  • Lupus
  • Fibromyalgia

I would love if you have a Awareness or Cause that means something to you or a loved one to please share and let me know and I will make as many bracelets you’d like. There is no charge to these. I want to break ALL stigmas and spread awareness.

Thank you for coming along with me on this Journey. There is so much hatred in the world and I don’t want anyone to confront it on their own. Battling Mental Illness has enough darkness in that alone. I want to create a safe place for us to share our stories, to share our struggles and to break all stigmas.

10 Quotes To Keep Going

Welcome back Loves!! So, I’ve always been the type of person who just absolutely LOVES quotes! I could spend hours looking them up. And thanks to Pinterest, that has happened on many occasions. I often find myself connecting with quotes because I simply can not find the right words to explain how I feel sometimes. Don’t you just hate that? You really want to express how you feel, but the words just won’t come out?

• With struggling with Depression and especially Anxiety, I would constantly be looking up quotes to help me keep going. Family and Friends would give me advice or encouraging words, but I would always find myself looking up Motivational Quotes or Strength and Faith Quotes and it would really really help me.

So down below, I am going to share with you all 10 of my favorite quotes that has helped me to keep going. I hope that whoever is reading this will be able to use these as daily reminders when things get though. Because trust me they will, but you CAN and WILL get through it.

10. This is so true. Just the littlest step can lead you in the direction towards something greater. 9. Even if you don’t believe in God, Life will always work it’s self out. You just have to HOLD ON and you will see everything fall into place.

8. Sometimes when things are just NOT working in our favor, we need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Sometimes we are the ones who need to make the change for things to get better.

7. Now this one is a GOOD one. We can not and I repeat can not let our troubles break us. No matter how hard it gets, you have to remember life still goes on so things will change. Don’t let these troubles define you. Stay strong.

6. This quote here I’ve had for YEARS. It’s really all about just making small changes and really everything will fall into place.

5. Oh yes, be gentle with yourself! I would often beat myself up because I would feel like I was losing control of everything. Just be gentle with yourself, you really are doing the BEST you can.

4. Yes. Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful. I always thought I had to change who I was because of some struggles I had to go through. But those struggles are apart of me. Apart of MY story. They made me WHO I am. So, I’m my own kind of beautiful.

3. Storms really don’t last forever. If you told me this years ago, I’d laugh. I would tell you “Yeah right, things will NEVER get better”. Guess what? They DO.

2. I don’t think anyone is ever really “broken”. So even when you feel broken, just remember “You grow through what you go through”. So no matter what, you can still light up the world.

1. YOU ARE ENOUGH. No matter what happens. No matter what life throws at you, you are enough. There is no one else on this earth like YOU. The world NEEDS you. Please always remember YOU are enough!

I did make a few changes, so let me tell you about them and then I’ll jump into my topic for today!

  • My name new on Instagram is “Mallory’s Thoughts”. You can find me with @mallorys_thoughts

  • For right now I’ll be ONLY be posting on Wednesdays. In the near future I’ll go back to Sunday’s and Wednesday’s.

So while I was gone I celebrated my 28th Birthday on June 4th! In my short 28 years I have learned a lot and I know I’ll learn more but I wanted to share what I’ve learned thus far!

  1. Life will NEVER go as planned. Growing up I had a painted picture in my mind of how my life was going to go. Boy was I wrong! But hey that’s ok! I’ve been through a lot that has taught me so much!
  2. When they say time goes faster as you get older, they are RIGHT! It really does. And I know it will only continue to do so.
  3. NEVER take loved ones for granted. Because once they are gone, they are gone.
  4. Pay attention in school! And also don’t take those days for granted because when those days are gone, you’ll miss them.
  5. There are many moments in life you’ll never get an apology. Accept that you won’t and just move on. You’ll be HAPPIER.
  6. Life truly does go on. Time waits for no one.
  7. START chasing and working towards your dreams as soon as you can. Don’t wait or put it off. Go and start NOW!
  8. Happiness truly comes from WITHIN. Things and people will add to your happiness but true happiness comes from within yourself.
  9. People can become so unreliable. Make sure you don’t solely rely on them but that you rely on YOURSELF.
  10. Don’t live IN fear. If you do that, you’ll miss so much of life.
  11. STOP and actually smell the roses. Don’t let small things pass you by.
  12. Not everyone will GIVE you support. Make sure you have enough confidence in yourself to make things happen and not let THEM stop your dreams.
  13. The world is a cruel cruel PLACE. Make sure you are the change you want to see in the world.
  14. There is going to be many scary and questionable times in life. Just HANG ON, because there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it WILL be ok!
  15. People are going to hurt you. And it sucks. But don’t let that DEFINE YOU. Instead embrace it and grow from it.
  16. Make sure your mental health is a PRIORITY. If you need a day to just focus on you, take it.
  17. Not everyone will UNDERSTAND you. And guess what!? That’s perfectly ok. Your life is your own story. You’re leaving behind a legacy everyday.
  18. Family is EVERYTHING. But just remember, not all family is blood related.
  19. Don’t let ANYONE control YOUR life. It’s yours and they have their own.
  20. You can not CHANGE someone. They will be who they want to be. Just focus on what you need to change for yourself. As the joke goes.. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”
  21. You don’t need a HUGE group of friends. Just a few close ones. They make a world of difference.
  22. Your taste buds and style actually DO change as you get older. My mom use to tell me that and I never believed her until I started liking BROCCOLI and some floral designs.
  23. If people make fun of you, there is something wrong with THEM. It’s not you!
  24. If you’re not happy with something, YOU have to make the change. It won’t just change on its own. ( This was a tough lesson for me)
  25. Speaking of change. Change is HARD but it’s going to happen. Just remember to go with the flow. You’ll adapt.
  26. Learn to love YOURSELF first. It actually does make a HUGE difference. You really do gotta love yourself first before you can love anyone else. ( This use to drive me crazy when people told me this. I never believed it till now)
  27. The more you learn and try NEW things, the more you’ll actually discover who you really are. And you might actually surprise yourself.
  28. Last but not least. This is actually my favorite one…

Never give up on the little girl inside your heart
