Hey friends! As you read this I’m sure you’ve noticed the major change in my blog name. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m getting married in a few months and I’m going to be changing my last name 😉
How does that affect my first name?! Well, I’ve always been unhappy with my name, it’s long and it’s just not what I would have chosen for myself had I been able to decide (believe it or not, I couldn’t do that as a baby haha). My actual name is Anne-Marie, and my family and friends just always ended up shortening it to Annie, so that became my nickname and that’s how I came up with the title for my blog. However, I’ve never particularly cared for “Annie” even though that’s what everyone still calls me. Continue reading
Hey y’all. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything on here, so how about a life update kinda thing?
A lot has been happening in my life lately. I got engaged, that’s probably the biggest thing haha 😊🥰
I’ve been getting like really sick all the time too, so that’s new. I feel like I’m always getting over a bug and then I get hit with another one right after. It feels like it could be stress related though, so that’s probably something I should under control. Continue reading
A belated happy new year!!!
Well, I haven’t posted for months… this keeps happening to me, I’m so sorry, y’all. And you’ve probably noticed that my header looks a tad different.
That’s because I feel that my old header, while very peaceful and pretty, didn’t really capture what my site was about. But I like this new one. I think it suits me much better.
Anyway, on to the gist of the post!
Anyone who knows me well knows that I deal with anxiety. Like crazy anxiety. To the point where it basically consumes me and causes all kinds of trouble for me. I’m talking muscle tension, sometimes spasms, insomnia because of all the muscle tension, headaches, exhaustion, and the list goes on. Continue reading
I was aimlessly scrolling through Pinterest tonight looking at pretty pastel wallpapers with quotes on them and I suddenly got inspired to write a blog post.
The particular quote that I saw read something like, “I decided to be happy because it’s good for my health,” and it was just so simple. I just kinda sat there dumbfounded for a minute or two.
There are so many times that we make happiness out to be this big giant thing that we’re all striving for and it seems like this impossible journey to get to be happy. Continue reading
Hey guys! I’ve been gone for so long… I know. I feel horrible about it, really. But I’m back now. You won’t get rid of me that easy 😉 haha
Anyway, a lot has happened while I’ve been away from the blogosphere. But what I really want to address now is kind of a touchy subject. It’s one that I’ve been dealing with a lot recently and I kinda wanted to just jump on here and vent about it and hope that maybe some of y’all can relate.
Have you ever been subjected to criticism and judgment, not by “enemies”, or anyone who’s not Christian, but by believers? By those who should love, accept, support, and encourage you? I certainly have, and it’s made me question certain things. Things that, as Christians, we are supposed to not only believe in but practice. Because really belief without practice is hypocrisy.
