Snap Chattin

Some say that when you finally accept yourself you truly become happy.

For most of us it’s a journey that can take a little longer than others. For once I finally fell in love with Snap Chat. It can be so hard to be yourself on social media let alone the internet. People concisely judging you and if you doing blogging as well you know the struggle of bring attention to your blog. I always feel like I selling myself and never can truly be myself.

So when I decided to give Snap Chat another chance it really surprised me.

I love using their Geo-Filters and sharing my stories with others. I felt like it forced me out of my shell (social media wise). Like the other day I shared a 30 second video of me singing along using one of the filters. To tell you the truth it was really fun. I stopped caring if people thought I was a good singer or who saw it. It became more about having fun than being amazing at it.

So I wanted to share this little thing that has bought me joy lately. Comment below what your secret joy is and feel free to like it.

A HUGE Lifestyle Change

Last week I got some sad news, someone I love was diagnosed with diabetes. After a tearful conversation I realized how important it is to treat your body right. Sure we think a soda or a bag of chips won’t do any damage but in the long run it just might.

I have always had horrible eating habits and after that night I am more than willing to change them. I have made a pact with myself to be not only a support system to them but to join them.

Changing what you eat can be extremely difficult. So I have been doing non-stop research on what kind of food they need to start eating and exercise tips.

Tonight I’m going to try and make this.

And since fruit juice is a no-no, I decided to make this for the rest of the week. Hopefully it last that long.

If there is anything to take away from my article its to see your doctor and get checked out. Because there are 29.1 million people in the United States that have diabetes. But the scary part is that 8.1 million of them may be undiagnosed and unaware of their condition.

  • In adults 20 and older, more than one in every 10 people suffers from diabetes, and in seniors (65 and older), that figure rises to more than one in four.

So do your loved ones a favor and get a physical. To see more of my recipes and pins you can follow me on pinterest (@modernmeow).
