This is another goal that I’m adding to my list. Please check out my previous blog post, Blogging With Depression about how if you’re…

Setting Goals

Good day fellow bloggers! Today, we are going to switch it up a bit. A few months ago, I was duped into spending $15 of our hard earned money on a program that stated it would help me set goals for a business that I am trying to start. After I generously paid, I received…

Please Forgive Me

Forgiving those that have hurt you can be difficult, but asking for forgiveness from someone that you have hurt can be even more challenging.

5 Pros to Hair Loss

Since my battle with Lupus began, one of the symptoms that I have been experiencing is  “unexplained hair loss”, according to my rheumatologist.

Who’s Ashley?

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve read a lot of post about personal growth. I mean, it’s the end of the year, so I’m sure it is only appropriate for people to share how awesome this past year has been for them. I was trying to think of what I could write for a…

I Want To Twirl, Dam**t!

As people, we have the tendency to take our lives for granted. The heartache that we go through numbs our ability to live in the now. This past week, my husband and I chose to watch Valerian and The City Of A Thousand Planets. It’s a movie about a planet full of intelligent beings viciously wiped…

Unapologetically Living Life

What does living your best life look like? Sometimes we have the tendency to live our lives for other people and feel like we have to apologize or be sorry for when we finally decide to live for ourselves and do what is best for us. We shouldn’t have to apologize for living our best…
