Mental illness is real. Some illnesses are talked about and recognized more than others, like bipolar disorder. Then there are ones that people think are made up like body dysmorphia, self mutilation, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. We need to talk about mental illness because ignoring it or hiding it will only push others away. We need a good support system and people around us who understand when it's time to give us our space, comfort us, or just to remind us that it's okay. It's shows like these that take us from pretending mental illness doesn't exist, to talking about it without shame or embarrassment.
Being a blogger, I am on the computer more than 10 hours a day and usually on my phone when I'm not on my computer. Running your own business takes a lot of time, hard work, and dedication. I usually would say that people only should work this hard so they don't have to work later, but in this case – I love what I do. So, when I mention the countless hours that are spent writing and staring at a bright screen, it's just to give you an idea of how much I am straining my eyes.

I usually don't make New Year's resolutions, but I promised myself that 2016 would be a year full of focus, hard work, and great opportunities. I am pretty proud of everything that I've accomplished this year. I can't take all of the credit, though. I've had a lot of help from Nature Made B-12 Vitamins. Nothing compares to a natural energy supplement from a brand that you can trust.
I think that the most difficult part of a new journey is that we beat ourselves up and we push ourselves more than we reward ourselves. Rewards are encouraging and we all deserve them once in awhile. I have created a Fruit and Chocolate Basket, featuring DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut products.

It's the second week of the New Year! A lot of women have fitness and weight loss goals for the New Year. That means that everyone is shopping for the best clothing and shoes for their fitness goals. Running shoes are easy to find, but walking shoes aren't as easy. I personally like a walking shoe that I can wear with anything. It needs to be shoes that I can wear with my fitness clothes and out while going on my numberous adventurues. The Dansko Sabrina shoes are a perfect example of an every day shoe.
I love art. I love every type of art – tattoos, graffiti, paintings, interior design – I love it all. Put a creative touch on something and I will appreciate it. That's why I am excited to introduce all of you to the Ink & Burn workout clothing. It's art on running, yoga, and workout clothing! How cool is that? So, in the spirit of Christmas and the new year with new resolutions, I picked up a couple of pieces to show everyone.
