Hi everyone, my name is Abby Rose!
I am a 20 year old college student at the University of Rhode Island, currently double majoring in Communications Studies and Writing & Rhetoric. Even so, I have been through the wringer trying out a plethora of classes- from anatomy to screenwriting- but still cannot seem to find my niche.
As much as I may pretend to have my life together, I still have absolutely no idea what I want to do. The more I considered though, I was able to realize that both mental and physical well-being have become major points of focus in my life.
However, keeping a healthy mind and body have not always been a priority of mine. It has taken quite a lot to get me where I am today.
A few months ago, my mother passed away the day I moved back home for summer break.
The utter unexpectedness of this world-crumbling event sparked a motivation in me to make the changes that I wanted to see in my life, like I mentioned in my first introductory blog post. It made me realize that time is not something to take for granted. If I wanted to get something done, I needed to do it, now.
So, I began working on bettering my mental health by going to therapy and actually asking for help. Not only that, but I also started to take better care of my physical health as well. I went about getting into an exercise routine and paid more attention to the foods I was putting into my body.
Now, here I am, four months later, still healing and learning how to cope with this major lifestyle change, while feeling stronger than ever.
Thus, that is why I decided to create HappilyRose. I want to make this blog into a space for others to work on their own personal growth alongside me. By sharing my own stories, coping mechanisms, and even fun recipes, I hope to give people something to connect with.
Going through pain, suffering, or any other major changes in life is never easy if it’s done alone. So, let’s all be in this together, in this HappilyRose community!
