Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

Why you should watch ’13 Reasons Why’ on #Netflix #13ReasonsWhy

Sharing is caring!

13 reasons why

Many are talking about the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. I had never even heard of the novel or even had any intention of checking out the series until I caved in after seeing friends on Facebook talking about it.

13 Reasons Why Follows teenager Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life.

 

So, you may be wondering WHY YOU should watch it? Especially that it sounds too sad.

It is sad, sad that someone – a girl so young could take her own life and we’re watching a series about it. That’s not the reason you should watch it though. It’s the perfect watch for you, parents and families with teenage children. As much as you hate to admit it, it truly depicts those teenage years so many of us experience. I’m not sure if the show/book is based on true story but it’s happening in so many of our young peoples lives whether they’re the victim, a witness, or the offender. This is a subject we all shouldn’t be ashamed to talk about, whether we’ve experienced bullying first hand or going through it at the moment. I’ve been there too – a victim of bullying and had thoughts about just disappearing and suicide but I survived and truly believe it shaped the person I am today. We need to stand up to this subject and nip it in the bum!

Suicide is a serious matter. Teens, adults and even children use this as a way out – to end the pain and suffering. But people shouldn’t need a way out. Don’t be ashamed to get help, don’t be ashamed to help someone.

 

After you’ve watched it whether you watched it alone or with your teenager, talk about it and frequently, both subjects shouldn’t be ignored.

Have you watched the series yet? What did you think?

    So I read the book a long time ago, and I remembered liking it but Goodreads.com says I gave it 2 stars, ha (in 2011). That being sad, the series is extremely sad but is NECESSARY viewing, especially if you’re a parent or a high school student. Really loved the series.

      Yes, it is definitely a must watch. I hope there’s a second season! Does the book go into the trial part?
