Time is our single most important asset. You can’t get more of it, and you can’t get it back. Believe it or not, what you decide to do with your time is entirely up to you, though at times it doesn’t feel this way. One of the reasons you may be reading this article now is because you feel as though you’re not making the most out of the time you have. You’re beating yourself up, and you want to know what you can do about it. You want to accomplish more. The great news is you have all the…


A lonely existence

I sit here for hours trying to put all the pieces together, pieces from my past — A time in my life which I have spent the past five years trying to forget.

The story begins with a 16-year-old me and a message from a guy, four years my senior. One afternoon I noticed I had received an inbox on Facebook from someone I did not know. We began talking. He asked if I would like to spend the day with him, to which I agreed. Although I did not know him personally, we had many mutual friends on Facebook…


Which type of procrastinator are you?

We all procrastinate, most of us, without really considering the reasons why we are doing it. We tend to assume that we procrastinate because we are weak or because we would rather be doing something more enjoyable. There are four types of procrastinators: the anxious, the fun, the “plenty of time”, and the perfectionist. We’re going to look further into these four types of procrastinators and offer some advice on overcoming this behavior.

The Anxious Procrastinator

Author of The Now Habit, Neil Fiore, defines procrastination as “a mechanism for coping with the anxiety with starting or completing any task or making any decision”…


Science suggests lasting relationships come down to kindness.

In the most popular wedding month of the year, June, about thirteen thousand couples in the United States commit to a lifelong relationship full of joy, love, happiness, and friendship, when saying the words “I do”.

Of course, however, it doesn’t work out this way for most couples. Most marriages fail, either by the relationship developing into being dysfunctional and bitter or by ending in separation and divorce. Of all couples who get married, only three out of ten of those remain in happy, healthy marriages.

Social scientists first began studying marriages, observing them in action, back in the 1970s…


In the United States, many animals are frequently injured or killed as a result of hunting, car accidents, destruction of their habitat, an accidental poisoning of their food/water supply, and other human activity so it comes as no surprise that in most situations humans pose far more danger to wild animals then they do to us. That being said, humans are also occasionally injured or killed by wildlife. I’ve made a list of what are considered the most dangerous (in no particular order) animals in the United States.

Hudson (right) & Ryda (left)

As last year came to an end, we welcomed the new year. I remember staring at my sons, Hudson now 17 months and Ryda now 3 months, I was taken back with just how quickly they were growing.

I like to think of myself as a good mother. They have everything they could need. However in a world full of technology and a society so accustomed to spending much of our time on phones and laptops it’s easy to let that time slip away.

I’m currently working on building a number of online income streams before our family sets off…


Why I Made The Decision To Travel Full-Time During A Pandemic

For most of my life I have found myself often becoming bored. Bored of the 9-5 jobs I was working, bored of the houses I was renting and just overall bored of the life I was living.

Jesse, my fiancé, had expressed to me he would like to start taking camping trips. In December of 2020 I was up late searching for camping gear online at BCF to gift him for Christmas when a thought popped into my head. ‘Our lease is up in March 2021 and Jesse was…


Virtually everyone will agree that last year, 2020, wasn’t too good a year.

It started with the pandemic that caused millions of families to either perish all together or lose a loved one and as more time passed with the pandemic ravaging every nation, things only got worse: from the crashing of the economy of all countries, to mass unemployment, to (violent) protests springing up from different parts of the world and so on.

Even when we were expectant of things getting better in the latter weeks of the year with the introduction of the vaccine, the virus mutated, took…


After months of anticipation, different countries started rolling out COVID 19 vaccines. The formulation of more than 95% effective vaccines by different countries gave people hope that the deadly virus would soon meet its end, at least until the anti-vaxxer’s propaganda surfaced.

For the past few weeks, anti-vaxxer’s propaganda has been at its peak, promoting uncertainty among the masses regarding the vaccine. Unfortunately, 30 years Texas-based woman Patricia Chandler, fell prey to this scheme.

Recently Patricia shared pictures of her feet, covered with purple and red sores. Patricia is suffering from an unknown skin condition, but anti-vaccine activists are exploiting…
