• Are You Setting Goals The Right Way?

    Are you setting goals the right way? Ok, that question is a little misleading. There really isn’t a right or wrong way to set goals. If it works for you then that’s all that really matters. I won’t sit here and tell you that you’re doing everything wrong. That’s presumptuous and oftentimes dead wrong. And, if we’re being real it’s annoying. I hate when people pretend that they’re experts. Especially, when you figure out that their research and data is all crap. At the end of the day, most people are just trying to pump out a blog post or hear themselves…

  • Mission Statement

    Hello! I’m Amy, the voice behind this lovely blog. This blog is on a mission to share stories that’ll make you laugh, cry, and inspire you to live a better and happier life. You see, I’m not your typical blogger girl. Sure, I have 3 beautiful kids and I am married to a doctor, but that’s where the similarities end. Most of the bloggers you see today are extremely well off, and haven’t really experienced many hardships. Or, at least that’s what they want you to believe. Well, guess what? I didn’t grow up in the suburbs or some big city with an elegant…

  • Blog Confessions: New Blogger Problems

    As a new blogger, I am in uncharted territory. Ok, it’s not technically uncharted territory there are many bloggers before me, but I’d be lying if I said I felt confident following the road maps of other bloggers. I’m constantly looking up “How To Blog” blogs, but I still feel lost. I can’t even put myself in a niche. Is this a lifestyle or personal blog? I don’t know. My goal for this blog is multifaceted. I want to share my stories, it’s actually quite therapeutic, help people who’re struggling through the same issues I’ve been through, and figure out how to…

  • How To Boost Serotonin Naturally

    Does your mood shift after the holidays? Mine does…every year! It never fails. This year my mood took a nose dive before Christmas, and has yet to bounce back. In fact, each day it seems to get a little bit worse. Everyone’s talking about Covid boosters, yet I’m over here wondering where to get a serotonin booster. Serotonin is usually the neurotransmitter that comes to mind when people talk about depression. Serotonin is a mood stabilizing hormone that also helps with sleep and digestion. If your levels drop too low, it can leave you feeling depressed, anxious, exhausted, and even cause some…

  • Question: What’s Your Favorite Book And Movie?

      What’s your favorite book and movie? Have you ever been asked this in an interview? I personally never have. Then again, I haven’t interviewed for a job in a long time. However, now that my kids are all in school during the day, the idea of going back to work has crossed my mind a few times. It’s usually fleeting. The logistics of an actual work schedule and my kids’ schedule doesn’t really pan out well. Even though I know I’m not going to go back to work for a company anytime in the near future, I still like to research…

  • Graze Vs. Meal: Which Is Better?

    Are you a meal person or a grazer? I never really gave it much thought until someone mentioned that they cook three meals everyday. I’m the opposite! I cook one, occasionally two meals a day. The rest of the day we either eat left overs, snacks, or things that the kids and I can make quickly.  I usually cook meals that will have left overs that way I can skip cooking the next day. Cooking isn’t my favorite thing to do. Plus, when I cook more I feel compelled to eat more and usually end up over-eating. I really want to teach…

  • Screw The Statistics! 8 Tips to Smash Your Fitness Resolutions

    Have you ever started the New Year without a resolution? If you’re like most Americans, you have a list of lofty goals you’re just itching to get started on.

But, let’s be honest how many times have you actually stuck through and accomplished your resolutions? If you can honestly say yes, you rock! However, most of us can’t. According to statistics, on average only about 16% of people who make resolutions actually accomplish their New Year’s resolutions. If…

  • My 10 Favorite Skincare Products

    I’ve always been very insecure about my skin. I started having breakouts when I was 9. My breakouts started out mild. Then puberty hit, and I swear it was like someone flipped a switch and my mild breakouts turned into severe cystic acne. It sucked! I tried every over-the-counter acne medication that I could find. After many years of trying everything I could get my hands on to no avail, I went to see a dermatologist. The dermatologist cycled me through several different prescription medications before prescribing Acutane. It was aggressive, but after 6 months my acne was mostly gone. Albeit, not…

  • ‘Twas The Night Before Grinchmas

    ‘Twas the night before Grinchmas…wait, wait, wait! Grinchmas? Yes, you heard that right we celebrate Grinchmas. I know that there are many Christians and Muslims  who are offended by the way my family has chosen to celebrate this lovely yearly tradition. But, before you throw shade, let me explain how this all came about. You see, my husband’s family is Muslim and I am from non-practicing Catholic family. Growing up we always celebrated Christmas, however, it was never in a religious way. Even though my husband grew up in Canada his family never celebrated Christmas because well they’re Muslim and it’s not…
