Winter Wonderland Guest Bloggers Series

Winter Wonderland Guest Bloggers Series

Hi everyone and TGIF! I know it’s kind of early to start talking about a winter guest bloggers series BUT Lil Red loves to plan in advance so we’ll consider it perfect timing, instead. As the weather changes from cold to colder, lifewithlilred will become a toasty, warm safe haven for some holiday fun. I want all of your gift buying guides, DIY ornaments, and how many Christmas cookies you can eat in one sitting. Your favorite White Elephant present will also do just as well, if you don’t feel like playing Chubby Bunny “holiday style”!

I am hoping to get this holiday party started around the second week of December. If you are interested in being a guest blogger for my Winter Wonderland series, then shoot me an email with your post ideas at: sarah.mush6794@gmail.com !

THANKS!! ❤

Feeling Blah

Feeling Blah

Hi everyone and happy Sunday! Is it just me or are any of you guys feeling totally blah lately? I recently started going to therapy at the beginning of October and it has had me in quite a tizzy. That, on top of the changing weather, the darkness that falls in the early evening, and the stressers of daily life has left me feeling completely lackluster.

Now, I get it, life isn’t always sunshine, puppies, and rainbows (I wish!) – but that doesn’t mean that having the blues doesn’t freaking suck! Everything in Lil Red’s world at the moment has just been that step below average. So the not good but closer to bad doldrums have hit me like a ton of bricks. And once those feelings make camp in your head, it’s so hard to shake them.

I try not to be a complainer and god knows I try to just grin and bear it, but boy is it exhausting. I have found solace in Netflix and chilling with myself in between my work schedule but I think that I have become wayyy too comfortable just sinking into the couch and trying to forget my worries in a binge watching session.

So how does one peel themselves off of their futon and start taking life by the horns again? Shit, I don’t know! That’s why I’m asking you guys! Lol, but seriously I need to take a deep breath, get up, and just go. Yes, it’s easier to lose myself in a Saw movie marathon but it would be better to do things that are good for me to clear some of the fog in my head. But, man is it hard sometimes!

What do you do to ease some of the blahs in your brain? How do you get yourself going again after a stint with depression? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Last Call For Mini Halloween Series Guest Bloggers

Hellooo everyone and happy weekend! I am still looking for a few more guest bloggers for my mini Halloween series while I am away for a couple of days in October.

Mini Halloween Guest Bloggers Series, Anyone?

Mini Halloween Guest Bloggers Series, Anyone?

Hello, hello one and all and happy Hump Day! So as you all know, I am venturing to the Big City to hang out with one of my BFFs, Kate, from Ankhor You in mid October. We are both ecstatic to finally be hanging out for our “Bloggers Conference” after literal MONTHS of non stop texting and almost weekly FaceTime dates. It’s going to be a blast and once I return to Ohio, we will be spamming our blogs with tons of collaborative fun.

However, while I’m away, I would love to host a mini guest bloggers series on my page so that I can fully enjoy my vaca with the knowledge that lifewithlilred is in good hands. And what better way to do that than by inviting my blogging friends to celebrate Halloween with my readers?!

I absolutely LOVE Halloween. A little known fun fact about Lil Red is that my first job was working as an actor in a haunted house for two years. With that being said, I love the horror genre, I obviously live for haunted houses, and there is nothing better than attending a boozy costume party.

For this guest bloggers series, I want it all. Your best costume ideas (store bought or DIY), a funny or scary Halloween experience, your favorite Halloween treats (or tricks!), and how to guides on applying the perfect costume makeup.

Because this is a mini series, I am going to need five posts, but am willing to increase it by a few depending on the response. So, if you are interested in turning lifewithlilred into Halloween Heaven, please email me at sarah.mush6794@gmail.com with your post ideas! THANKS!!!! -Sarah

Alternative Ways Of Helping People For A Living

Standard
Alternative Ways Of Helping People For A Living

When you picture a career that involves helping people, you usually envision jobs in medicine, law, education, or even management. On one hand, these are very easy industries to get into; you find out what to study, get the relevant experience, and then hope that you’ll soon start making meaningful contributions to society. However, these are just some of the ways that you can lend a hand to your fellow man. Maybe you can see yourself happily employed in one of the aforementioned industries, but if you’re still hoping that there’s another way for you to help people, here are a few suggestions to inspire you:

Life Coach: Life is definitely not a walk in the park. Everyone goes through periods of self-discovery, but there is also a lot of confusion during those periods. We all know what it’s like to not know what you want to do with your life or what job you want. You could help all these confused masses by becoming a life coach. You don’t need to go to a fancy school to get qualified; you can get life coach training from animascoaching.com or any other online accredited course. As a Life Coach, you can help them narrow their focus and help your clients to close the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. There are elements of counseling and behavioral therapy involved, but you don’t need any kind of prior experience to get started.

One of many ways to help!

Massage Therapist: Looking after people’s health is not just limited to a career in medicine or psychology. More and more people feel increasingly stressed at work or they’re in a lot of pain after they’ve been injured. As a massage therapist, you could help ease some of their tension, help them unwind, and even recommend a few therapies that they could try at home between treatments. The best part for you is that you don’t need to save up hundreds of dollars to get qualified – all you need is a certificate or diploma, and then you can work your way up through a spa. The most important thing that you will teach your clients is that it’s okay to take a break from the world and indulge in some “Me-Time” every once in a while. It will leave them better equipped to continue taking on challenges in their daily life.

Ahhhhh 🙂

Personal Trainer: Everyone is worried about their health, especially when they’re very aware that they live a mostly sedentary lifestyle. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a doctor to help people get their health back in good condition. Personal trainers can also specialize in diet and nutrition so that they can help their clients completely overhaul their unhealthy lifestyle. There is more than one way to become a personal trainer, so you can choose to enroll in a full time intensive course or get qualified in a part time course so that you don’t have to give up your day job. Seeing your clients get happier, stronger, and healthier, will be a fulfilling way to live your life.

Oh yeah!

Although being an ER nurse is most admirable, it’s not the only way to help out those around you, as you can see from this post! Happy weekend!
