Let’s throw a pity party. 

This post is for anyone who is so self indulged, disrespectful and completely living life from inside their own bubble. 

I know you have a 5 year old and 14 month old, I also have a 31 year old husband who works at a bar and doesn’t get home until 4am. Our house is quiet so your children can sleep. We understand you have small kids and we understand that our schedules are opposite but we don’t stomp around the house yelling profanities at 2am, we don’t do 6 loads of laundry a day and use all the hot water, and we definitely don’t have the cops called on us because we are incapable of looking after our own children. 

Respect is one thing, whether you have it or not there is no need to go out of your way and be disrespectful. There is no need to cry and throw yourself a pity party when the landlord comes to calm the storm because you neglected to talk to us like a human being in the first place. Everyone goes through tough times, it’s not your neighbors fault so please don’t take it out on them. Lord only knows your neglectful as it is when the cops have to come remove your children from their mother. 

I will never grow patience for people who let their children run through the house like a jungle gym, we understand kids will be kids, we know they’re going to throw a tantrum or have a bad day and we never take it out on you. There are indoor activities and outdoor ones, know the difference and don’t let your kid jump off the couch at 7am when the neighbors are sleeping. 

Love & Light,

Your upset neighbor. 

Self Actualization & Ketosis

My apologies for the length of time since my last post, it’s been a whirlwind of packing, moving, unpacking, no wifi, super bowl, etc. Still no excuse for my laziness. 

I went through a lengthy period of time last year where I was severely depressed, quite honestly I’m still fighting the depression but it’s gotten a lot better. 

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile you know I’m Canadian but living in the United States with my husband whom I still deeply adore. I’ve met some amazing people here and I’ve met others whom I wish I hadn’t. I feel like everyone has an addiction, although it’s personally chosen I believe it exists. Here it’s generally alcohol, I got to a point where I was drinking a lot more than I ever would and I was definitely disappointed to say the least. Other people are addicted to their “cliques” instagramming their life in less than appropriate clothing while they work a job very close to prostitution, snap chatting their every waking moment, or facebooking every “night out” with the crew. 

There are others here who are just addicted to the gym and making the most of themselves and potentially trying to reach self actualization. This is where I need to be, but this is what I’ve been missing. 

In order to get in touch with myself and who I truly want to be so I can eventually achieve self actualization I need to step back and just “do me” for awhile. 

I’ve researched ketosis, the benefits, the disadvantages, etc and I have decided to commit myself to it. So here I go! 

Love&Light, in the Red, White, and Blue!
