We all know by now: there are mean girls out there.

Internet allows mean girls to be meaner. They’re faceless and untouchable. They can say anything they want.

I had a girl comment on my Instagram that I dress like a nun’s daughter. I tried to laugh it off like it was a compliment, and she replied, “no dude, you just dress ugly.”

It’s time to combat this meanness with some general smiles and love. (Nothing ticks off a mean girl like someone who’s nice back.)

And I really just had the urge to paint something. This DIY was so much fun.

It might be that time of year, or I just live in an epidemic, but it seems that everyone is sick.

I think we’d all like someone to take care of us. Then all we’d do is lie in bed, watching Cinderella while someone waits on us hand and foot.

Here are simple ways to take care of yourself.

It’s happened. That moment when it’s time to get up from the couch/bed/chair, and you feel something.

Your left leg is heavier than usual. You’re not sitting on it anymore, so it should be feeling lighter, not heavier. You realize it’s numb. The tiniest wiggle of your pinky toe sends a lightning bolt splintering through your nerves all the way up to your teeth.
