The Blessing You Didn’t Plan For. The Blessing You Didn’t Plan For.

(ThySistas.com) One day, you’re minding your own business and you get an unexpected phone call from your grandmother. You start the conversation with the usual pleasantries and the topic begin to shift to something glee filled yet terrifying. She tells you that she has been dreaming of fish.

If Only There Was a Time Machine. If Only There Was a Time Machine.

(ThySistas.com) As a young woman, like any other, I would proudly and readily say that I lived my life with no regrets whatsoever. I would say that this person, that thing, this event, or that institution didn’t owe me a thing when I moved on. To a large degree, they don’t because they stopped me with more than enough memories to keep me laughing and crying for years to come. On the other... [Read more of this review]

What is Your Recharge Station? What is Your Recharge Station?

(ThySistas.com) If you ever have the chance to experience my home, we have chargers everywhere: phone, Bluetooth speaker, laptop, iPad, PS4, etc.  If it has a cord, we probably have somewhere for it to power up so you can go back to using it.   Anytime we lose a cord and/or plug, we get truly upset.  My husband and I are convinced that every charger is supposed to outlive us. No matter how much... [Read more of this review]


Is it Self-Care or Maintenance? Is it Self-Care or Maintenance?

(ThySistas.com) For the record, this question popped in my head courtesy of a rant my sister decided to have.  She went on social media and saw women getting their hair, nails, and feet polished and claiming it as self-care. “That is what you are supposed to do!  That is not self-care!” She shouted.  I laughed until I thought about what she said.  Then, it made me wonder if there is a difference... [Read more of this review]

Rest: There is Always Tomorrow. Rest: There is Always Tomorrow.

(ThySistas.com) Tired appears to be a perpetual state of being for so many of us. When asked how we’re doing, tired is stated or simply understood as a continual part of the answer.
