My Blogiversary: 1 Year with WordPress!!! ♡

What’s up, y’all! It’s Q’Zion, here, and welcome back to my blog! On August 1, 2021 I was a soon-to-be eighth grader who was looking for a way to share my writing with the world. I didn’t exactly know what to expect from having an entire website to oversee. In fact, I wasn’t even for sure if I would genuinely like blogging. But it turns out that the same day I started my blog was a day that I discovered a new passion of mine; using my writing to inspire others.

Now I’ve been blogging for a whole YEAR (a year and 2 days, to be exact.) And I can’t thank God enough for putting me on this journey.

While this past year has flown by in a lot of ways, I think I’ve learned a lot in this 12 months, as well. Blogging has taught me a lot about patience, perseverance, and commitment, considering that while many people think it’s a simple job, it also takes work and a willpower to keep pushing. I want to thank God, my Goodmommy, and each and every one of my followers who have walked with me on this journey. I pray that I will continue to inspire others in my writing in a way that gives God the glory. From the beginning, that was my goal, and it still is to this day.

In celebration of this important milestone, I’ll be doing a little reflection on the past year of my blog, as well as my plans for the future. Let’s get started!

Last Year’s Statistics

113 Followers (111 WordPress, 2 Email) — Honestly this is such an awesome achievement for my first year as a blogger–seeing my community and audience grow is such a blessing!

367 Blog Posts — It turns out that I’ve been blogging for exactly 367 days–every time I didn’t post for a day, I’d make up for it and write two posts the next. I’m just thankful to God for giving me the strength to be so consistent.

1225 Likes — Out of all my stats, this has got to be the most mind-blowing! This is definitely much more than I was expecting, but I’m so grateful!

208 Comments — One of the most significant improvements on my blog is that now comments are much more common! It feels awesome to be able to communicate with my family, friends, and fellow bloggers through my website.

Will there be any Major Changes?

For the most part, I tend to keep my website the same–in terms of content and appearance. But this next year I plan on doing a few more posts about nutrition and health. I’ve also been thinking about doing monthly wrap-ups, where I give an overview of some of the highlights of each month (what I’ve read, where I went, my progress in school, etc.)

The most major change that I think I will put into place once I get into school in a week is how often I post. Instead of posting daily, I’m considering creating new content every 2 days, which is about 4 times a week. Not only will this give me more time to focus on school and come up with new content, but it will also allow me to work on adding new content to my YouTube Channel, most of which will likely be tutorials and reviews for Rainbow Loom, as well as some other Roblox and lifestyle content.

Goals for Next Blogiversary

By August 1, 2023, it’s my goal to have reached at least 275 followers on my blog! I can’t wait to see my blogging community grow as I continue to stay consistent with creating awesome content for you all!


Once again, a huge thank you to all of you for pressing the “SUBSCRIBE” button on The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen! I’m so thankful to God that I have made it to this blogiversary, and I pray for many more wonderful years of blogging filled with inspiration, growth, and lots and lots of love.

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! See you next time! ♡

8 Wellness Tips for a Healthier (and Happier) Lifestyle

What’s up, everybody! This is Q’Zion, and welcome to my blog! I hope all of you are enjoying the prime of summer!

As you all know, we recently entered the month of August. But did you know that the 8th month of the year also promotes wellness in our everyday lives? If not, then today’s the day! In honor of National Wellness Month, I have created a list of 8 simple tips to help us live our happiest and healthiest lives possible. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get this show on the road!

1. Start your mornings with something productive

The morning is one of the most important times of the day; it’s a time for us to get our gears moving and create a fresh start for a brand new 24 hours. After we finish our regular morning routine, we might as well do something to boost our energy. Stretching with some yoga poses, finishing another chapter of your new book, and learning a new language are a few options. You never know–after you begin to start your day doing something you love, you may even become a morning person.

2. Go outside and get some sunlight

Exercise is just as good for our minds as it is beneficial for our bodies. And that means that it’s one of the best ways to maintain a healthier lifestyle. A quick jog around your neighborhood or a local park is a great way to enjoy what nature has to offer while burning a few calories, before dinner. What’s not to love?

3. Eliminate negative self-talk

Wellness isn’t technically something that’s hard to achieve–but the progress starts with us. In order to transition to a state of better mental health, our mindsets have to be a reflection of that. This means that in order to make the progress that we want, we’ve got to be kind to ourselves by promoting positive words in our heads everyday. It’s much easier to reach a goal when we use our inner voice as an outlet of encouragement, rather than negativity.

4. Get a green thumb

Have you ever heard that people who garden tend to be happier? Well, then that is in fact correct. Multiple studies have shown that plants have a way of helping people feel more relaxed and content, similar to the effects of riding a bike everyday. Plants can even help increase concentration, your ability to breathe, and quality of life. So taking up the hobby of gardening might be a good idea to consider.

5. Creatively eat more fruits and veggies

Although we’ve all heard it thousands of times, we really do need to get our daily intakes of fruits and veggies. But just because we want to make an effort to make our diet more nutritious, doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun while doing it. Feel free to experiment with creative–and delicious–ways to eat healthier. Fruit smoothies, colorful salads, and veggie casseroles are a few tasty ways to spice things up in the kitchen.

6. Create something

I don’t know about you, but it always feels good when I take some time out of my day to be creative. There are so many options for what you can make–whether it’s a few quick doodles, a portrait, a paper craft, or even your own book. All it takes is a little imagination, and thousands of productive possibilities are within our reach!

7. Make sleep a priority

One of the things that we all need everyday is our beauty sleep. Without it, there’s no way that we could get through each day. So even if you find yourself busy as a bee, make sure that when your work for today is done, you get your 8 hours. This way, you can put just as much energy in the work that tomorrow has in store, and feel great while doing it.

8. Stay hydrated

The golden rule to a healthy lifestyle is to keep water in our systems. Not only does water reduce the risk of a large number of diseases, but it also does the basic job of maintaining high energy levels and keeping our brain functioning at its best. Considering all it’s benefits, drinking water is definitely a goal that we should all commit to.


Working towards a healthier lifestyle can be a challenge for some, but with a few simple changes here and there, achieving our wellness goals is a piece of cake. I challenge you all to take the time during National Wellness Month to make a few goals for yourself to pave the way for a healthier, and happier life. Hopefully, these tips were a good way to start your journey!

Let’s Chat~What are some of the methods that you take to achieve wellness? Feel free to share your response down below.

Have a blessed rest of your day, everyone! I’ll catch you later! ♡

5 Benefits of Having a Parent Who Works From Home

What’s up, everybody? I hope you are having a splendid day or night! ♡

As most of your know, I have been homeschooled for a sum of almost 6 years now, and I absolutely love it! But I’m not the only one in my family who stays at home during weekdays; my grandmother and guardian, who I call my Goodmommy, also works from home as an offsite receptionist. Throughout the years, technology has improved drastically. And one of the benefits of the constant revolutions is that they allow many parents to work in the comfort of their own home. Goodmommy is one example of many.

Why am I talking about this subject in particular, you ask? Today is National Work From Home Day, and since my Goodmommy has been slaying at her job for 7 years, I want to share some of the things that I love about having a parent who works from home as a homeschooled teenager.

So without further ado, let’s get this party started!

1. A Flexible Schedule

Compared to work in an office building, working from home gives people an opportunity to be more flexible with when they work. For example, even though Goodmommy does have a schedule that she sticks to every week, she had the option to choose her own schedule according to her needs. This helps assure that her schedule is a healthy balance between her work and family life, unlike the demanding hours of some in-person jobs.

2. No Demanding Dress Codes

Depending on where you work, some businesses require their employees to dress business casual, or casual. While there is nothing wrong with a standard for appropriate attire, it can still limit what you can and cannot wear to work. Working from home–and attending virtual school–give you the option as to whether you want to work in everyday clothing or your pajamas and a robe. I personally think that you can be much more productive when you are in comfy clothing.

3. More Family Time

I’m quite sure I’ve repeated this multiple times, but Goodmommy is my absolute best friend. Therefore, because both of our schedules are so flexible, we are able to spend hours of quality time together each day. Working from home can have long hours, in some circumstances. But some companies actually give employees vacation time at and around special holidays, which helps people spend more of their leisurely time with their families.

4. We Use Less Gas

It’s hard to believe that we once had to drive to school and work five times every week. While it feels normal if you have that type of lifestyle, it isn’t hard to recognize that it uses a lot of gas—not to mention a lot of your time. And considering that the price of gas has been sky rocketing lately, working from home has definitely allowed us to save a lot of money.

5. Reduced the Risk of Contracting COVID

Although many people have let their guards down in regards to COVID, the risk of contracting the virus increases when you work amongst people every day. But having a parent that works at home means that it is much less likely that Goodmommy will get COVID or spread it to me, in the process. P.S. Don’t forget to stay safe, and wear your masks, everybody!


As you can see, having a parent who works from home is a blessing in so many ways. That’s why I thank God that He gave me and Goodmommy the opportunity to get our education and work at home, in the first place. At first, I missed attending in-person schooling, but the more I got used to the adjustment, the more I realized that being homeschooled is the perfect option for me; I wouldn’t have it any other way.

LET’S CHAT~Do you prefer working from home/attending virtual school, or being amongst other people? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!

Have a beautiful rest of your day, everybody! God bless you and I’ll see you next time! ♡

The Joyful Blogger Tag 🌻 | national day of joy ♡

If you could describe the best feeling in the world, what would it be? Come to think of it, there are a few that come to my mind. Love, gratitude, hope, peace. But what about the word “joy”? The dictionary itself defines the word as “a feeling of great pleasure or happiness.”

And while some might say that joy is a synonym to the word happy, it’s more of an abundance of glee that feels like a burst of energy throughout your body; in other words, pure bliss. Today happens to be the National Day of Joy, and a special Hug Holiday, which ironically go together perfectly. I mean, if there’s anything that bring us joy, it’s a warm hug.

In order to celebrate this day catered to joy, I decided to answer some fun yet thought-provoking questions in my original creation: The Joyful Blogger Tag 🌻 Feel free to answer each of these questions on your blog, as long as you state my name as the original creator (Q’Zion) and provide a link to the homepage of my blog within that post. And, without further ado, let’s get started!

What brings you the most joy–that does not include materialistic items?

Firstly Father God, who all my joy comes from. Then my family and friends. My pet fish. Seeing others be kind to one another. Doing what I love to do: including writing, art, listening to music, singing, reading, looming, etc. I think I feel happiest when I am doing what I love with the people that I love. While participating in my hobbies is always fun, whether I do it individually or with others, I always love to share my work with the people whom I care about the most.

Which color do you associate with the word “joy” the most?

I know this might be a little standard, but yellow is the first color that comes to my mind after reading this question. Bubblegum pink is a pretty close second, though. I think both of those colors are bright, energetic, bright and happy–looking. Brighter colors in the warmer spectrum tend to make me the happiest. On the other hand, colors like purple, blue and green give me a serene vibe. It’s funny how different colors and shades can make us feel different emotions, isn’t it?

How do you think you’ve grown as an individual within the past year?

The past year–or two–of my life have had a huge affect on the person that I am today. For one, I think that I’ve got a lot wiser, both due to things that God and my Goodmommy has shared with me as well as personal experiences. Now I am much more confident in who I am and how I look, and as a result I am a lot less shy then I was years ago. I have come to discover that I am wonderfully and perfectly made. In other words, I am exactly who God wants me to be. And I think that as long as I keep that motto in my heart, I will continue to grow.

What are you most grateful for?

The list is so long that it would never end, as there are always things to be thankful for when you look at the big picture of your life and what it could be. Right now, I’m most thankful for love and peace in my home. Being able to laugh, smile, and just enjoy life. I know that’s a pretty simple answer, but the things that make us happy don’t have to be complicated. In fact, most times it’s the everyday miracles that bring us the most joy.

How do you find joy through the trials of life?

When life gets tough and you’re in a tight spot, it can be tough for some to find things to be joyful about. However, I always like to remember that even though things might not be going my way, I’m still alive and breathing. Therefore, my journey is not over. Life itself is one of the greatest blessings of all. If we weren’t alive, how would we be able experience joy in the first place?


Wow! Those questions were the exact daily dose of happiness that I needed. The entire purpose for this post was to give us a chance to reflect on what makes us feel joy, and what we are grateful for even throughout the trials that we face. Remember, nothing and nobody can take your joy without your permission!

LET’S CHAT~What brings you the most joy? And furthermore, what is your favorite way to spread joy to others? Feel free to share your responses in the comments. I would love to hear from you all!

Have a joyful day, everybody! See you next time! 🌻

Visit an art museum — check ✅ | Reblog

A/N: Here is a quick reblog of the post where me and Goodmommy visited an art museum. I feel like this great post was super underrated, so I decided to post it again to give some more of you an opportunity to see the fun that me and Goodmommy had during my last spring break. Enjoy!

*I do not own any of the art in the photographs that I provided from the inside of the museum. All the pieces of art that I photographed belong to their rightful owners. As well, if you see any small, black markings on my photographs, they are for the purpose to protect the location of the museum and names of the employees of the museum. Thanks for reading this short disclaimer.*


In my house, we’ve stayed home for pretty much the whole week. Most of you, my current followers, already know that I’m a homebody, so that really didn’t bother me; so far, my spring break had been going awesome. 

But this day in particular, Goodmommy was not having it; early this morning, she woke me up and mentioned the idea of going to an art museum. Recently, I had brought up the idea of going to one, since I’m an art lover. Therefore, we both agreed that it would be a great idea for us to check out some art to get out of the house and have some mother-daughter bonding time.

If I couldn’t think of any other good reason to visit a museum–and trust me, I have plenty–one reason would be that most of the time, they provide so many opportunities to take beautiful pictures. Me and Goodmommy had so much fun taking a look at the water view and the tall buildings of downtown. The museum was in an entire center that included parks, restaurants, and even art organizations for kids. They’re was so much to do, which made the visit even more enjoyable.

Art museums tend to be giant, and the one that we visited was just another example. The pretty glass windows and doors looked beautiful, both outside an inside. Just by the front desk was a cute bakery and small jewelry shop. On the second level, where the galleries are located, you can even go outside on this deck area to see everything from a higher view. Cool, right?

What I really love about museums is that they’re kind of like a quick History lesson. But instead of learning the history through textbooks, you get to see the history through the story that the artists tell through their work, as well as the credited descriptions explaining the history of the work and creators.

Diversity is another beautiful element of art. Art comes in many shapes, scales, and colors, just like we do as people. This one gallery called Verde: Poetics of Shade was actually created by 5 different black woman, representing the diversity of a community and the people in it.

Although many people probably don’t realize it, a museum is a lot like a library. It’s very quiet, promote learning about the places we call home, and help preserve the history of past and present generations. 

This next one particularly caught Goodmommy’s attention. We both noticed that a lot of the artists behind many of the galleries were African-American, Greek, Egyptian, or Roman. It’s amazing how many cultures, mediums, and art styles can be combined to make one museum filled with creativity. Even though each piece is unique, they all come together to fill the walls of the museum.

After the short and sweet visit to the museum, we decided to go and get a bite to eat. We both ordered this really yummy sandwich with turkey, sauerkraut, cheese, pickles and more. A few months ago, we got the same sandwich without some of the ingredients…and we realized that it tastes soooo much better with everything on it. They give you pretty good servings. Me and Goodmommy ate 2 out of 4 pieces of our sandwiches at the restaurant, and we saved the other half for later. 

P.S., this whole thing is actually one sandwich. Goodmommy got one sandwich each for both of us. They definitely give you your money’s worth of food! 

After our main course, we both split a large slice of lemon cake–that was delicious, too. The whole meal was a 10/10. Now, we definitely know one of the best places to visit the next time we want to go out to eat.

Overall, we both had tons of fun today. I thank God that we were able to spend some quality time together outside of the house. Even though we don’t do so often, when we do, it makes me really appreciate my time with Goodmommy, and my entire family, even more.

Question of the Day: Have you ever been to a museum? If so, did you enjoy it? Feel free to share your thoughts below in the comments.

Thank you so much for reading, everyone! God bless you all! <33

Observing Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom

Hello, beautiful people! I’m Q’Zion, and welcome or welcome back to my blog! ♡

As you all know, there are a bunch of holidays that many of us celebrate each year; Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentine’s, and New Year’s are just a few examples. And while those are all great, there is one holiday in particular that was recently made a national holiday due to a bill signed by Joe Biden, coming into effect on June of 2021. That holiday is Juneteenth. And today, I’m going to tell you all what it’s all about.

What is Juneteenth?

In short, Juneteenth–a combination of the words “June” and “nineteenth”–is a holiday celebrating the freedom of the last African slaves in the United States on June 19, 1865, over two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Not only is it a mark of the end of slavery within our country, but also the freedom of African-Americans. This year, it just so happens to be shared with Father’s Day, which falls on the third Sunday of June.

Why should we celebrate it?

Even though Juneteenth is considered a national holiday, most Americans know little to nothing about it. This percentage includes some African-Americans, like myself. I believe Juneteenth is a holiday that should be observed and celebrated by American citizens of all nationalities and ethnic identities. Here are some reasons why.

1. We need to learn the good and bads of our nation’s history

While slavery was an unfourtunate element of the history of the United States, it is important that we know about what slaves went through before they were freed, their struggle to gain all of their natural rights, and the people who helped make African-American freedom a reality.

2. To help fight for equality

While Black Americans are now free from slavery, we are still constant victims of police brutality, discrimination due to the color of our skin or the way we dress our hair, higher chance of imprisonment, and higher employment rates. Our world has come a long way from its past, but racism is still a reality among some. Juneteenth gives us a chance to fight for equality for ALL human beings.

3. The freedom of slaves affects every American

As soon as the last African-American slaves were freed, it was a step forward to a more understanding, anti-racist, and fair country and world. Even after they gained their freedom, our black ancestors still struggled to gain all of their legal rights as American citizens. And many of us still struggle in today’s world. But with every peaceful protest, campaign, and usage of other personal platforms to spread awareness about Juneteenth, we can all work together to make our nation better than what it was decades ago.


Hopefully, this helped you all understand what Juneteenth is, as well as its importance. While the world isn’t perfect, we are making progress. And Juneteenth is a reminder that when we work together– in faith, perseverance, and love–there is no goal that our nation can’t achieve.

LET’S CHAT~Had you ever heard of Juneteenth before you read this post? If so, did you learn anything new about it today?

Thank you so much for joining me! I’ll see you next time! ♡

The BEST craft for summer

While it’s always nice to get a break off from school, sometimes it’s difficult to come up with things to do. But what I love about time gaps such as this is that they can increase your creativity, and help you try new things to serve as your entertainment.

Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been doing to spend some of my time during summer break. Yesterday, I mentioned that I got some new Rainbow Loom supplies, including some rubber bands and a hook. But the question still remains; what do I do with them?

Welp, here’s your answer!

Within the past 3 days, I’ve made a total of 12 mini 3D foods out of my rubber bands, all of which I made off of tutorials from the YouTube Channel feelinspiffy, the owner being the original creator of each of these super cute designs. To be honest, these are so fun (and easy) to make that it’s hard to stop once you’ve made it a hobby. Plus, they are so stinking cute!

Believe it or not, at one point I made over 50 of these, all either foods, objects, or characters, but I lost them in a move about two years ago. While I was pretty sad that I lost all of my creations, recently it dawned on me that it gave me a chance to make new “happy foods” that are even better than the first. And summer break is the perfect time to start.

I was a little nervous to get back into one of my old hobbies, since I wasn’t sure if I actually remembered how to use my loom. But I guess looming is one of those things where when you learn it, you’ve got it forever, as it immediately felt as if I never stopped. Thank God that I didn’t have to start from scratch LOL.

Overall, I wanted to post this today for two reasons. First, to show you all that it’s good to use free time as opportunities to use a little creativity. And second, that even when it seems like your work has dissapeared before your eyes, it is never too late to get back up and start again.

Have an amazing rest of your day or night, everyone! I’ll see y’all later! 💖

Flower Photography |Nature Photagraphy Day

A/N ~ Hey, y’all! I’m so glad you’re here! In celebration of Nature Photography Day, I will be sharing a reblog of some of my personal flower photography. Enjoy!

In my Visual Art class for this year, one module was focused on photography, and many of the techniques associated with it. Ever since then, I’ve fell in love with taking photos, especially of nature. As of now, I do my best to take at least one nature photo every week to get some practice in.

Spring is in bloom, so when me and Goodmommy came home today, I noticed these delicate white flowers that were sprouting from a tree just outside. And the first thing I thought was; photo opportunity! So I took a mini photoshoot of the flowers–one of the most beautiful aspects of nature–and I wanted you guys to check them out.

Here are some of my latest nature photographs. All Rights Reserved.

1. I absolutely admire this angle…the flower is tilted so elegantly. Ahh, that feeling when you get a good shot is the chef’s kiss.
2. I think close ups can be super pretty when executed well. I’m definitely seeing improvements!
3. In my art class, we learned that this technique (making small things look bigger) is called macro. The way I remember it is macro = microscope. It’s super cool how zooming in a little can help you see the intricate details that you can’t see unless you take a closer look. That’s one of the most beautiful parts of photographing nature.
4. I just had to show the whole tree in a shot, so I really used the opportunity to do the opposite of macro and make the whole tree the focal point rather than just one flower. The white stands out from the shades of green so vibrantly. Very spring, if you ask me!

Photography makes me feel super happy inside. And my photographs of the great outdoors are always some of my favorites. Thank God for the beautiful scenery of spring!

Learning about different species and organisms that I’ve never heard of or seen before is always a super exciting experience. Every photo that I take is a step of improvement; and I’m enjoying every second of it.

Thanks for reading, y’all! Toodles! 🌻

Answering Your Assumptions About Me ♡

Hey, hey, everybody! Happy Monday! ♡

As you can tell by the title, today I will be answering your amazing assumptions about me in celebration of reaching 100 followers and 1,000 likes on The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen. I want to thank all of my supporters, especially my family and friends, for helping me reach this important milestone; I couldn’t have done it without any of you.

I have been super excited to answering all of your responses! So without further ado, let’s get started!

Evin @ A Curly Sue’s Ramblings‘s Questions

1. You traveled out of your country

I have traveled to another state before (a couple of times, actually) but never outside of my country. To be honest, I haven’t even flew in an airplane before lol. But I really love traveling with my family, especially during breaks from school. If I could go to any country outside of my own, it would be either Italy, Spain, India, Canada, and/or Jamaica.

2. You are great at talking with people

Right off the bat, I’m not the type of person to have a long conversation with someone who I don’t know. However, the more I get to know people who I take a liking to, the more I open up to them. In short, I’m not the most talkative around strangers, but I do like to socialize. I have had many pleasant conversations with people, even in larger quantities–therefore, I would say that I communicate extremely well.

3. You have a bookshelf in your room

I sure do! I can see why you would assume this, since I express my love for reading so often in my writing. My 3-tier bookshelf holds about 150 books–about 75% of my collection–most of which I obtained in my early elementary school years. Although I’m not a super sentimental person, the thought of giving them all away doesn’t sit well with me lol. A majority of the books that I read now (novels and graphic novels) are on additional shelving and storage spots that I have in my room. Eventually, I’ll need some more space as my book collection continues to grow, so I’ll probably donate to Goodwill or another nonprofit in a couple years to give me some much-needed space.

4. Your favorite color is red/blue

When people ask me the question “What is your favorite color?” my answer is always a little complicated. My reason? Every color is beautiful and unique, and the spectrum wouldn’t be the same if any one of them were absent. However, I will say that my favorite color right now is purple. I like pink and blue a lot, and purple has a bit of resemblance to both. So I’ll give you 5/10 points for that one. 😉


Thank you so much for your response, Evin! I absolutely loved all of your assumptions–they were so much fun to answer!

Hopefully, this post helped you all get to know me a little better, and maybe even confirm some of the things that you’d assumed about me, too. If you have questions (or assumptions) about me–and I haven’t gotten any from you, so far–feel free to share them in the comments. I would be more than happy to write a PART 2 of this post!

Thanks again for your support! I’ll see you all next time! ♡

June 12 is a special day . . . here’s why

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I tend to use National (and Global) Days as inspiration. Not only do they address super interesting topics, but they are also amazing blog post ideas. Therefore, today I did my routinely check of June 12’s National Days, and there were so many interesting options that I didn’t know which one to choose.

Instead of making that utterly impossible decision, I decided to discuss three of the National Days for June 12 all in one blog post! I’ve got a lot of talking to do, so let’s just get this party started!

National Loving Day

Although we should love others and ourselves every day, National Loving Day is the perfect opportunity to put in an extra effort to help everyone around you feel loved. But to be more specific, this special holiday is catered to the celebration of interracial couples. The holiday was inspired by Mildred and Richard Loving (a black woman and white man) who got married in 1958. Less than 10 years later, they went to court in the case of Loving vs. Virginia, causing the Supreme Court to make it illegal for any state within the country to ban interracial marriages. This National Day is a reminder that love is a feeling that goes far beyond something as simple as race.

National Children’s Day

Honestly, being a kid is amazing. And although we can anticipate what it will be like to be adults, it’s important that we enjoy every single second of our childhood. National Children’s Day is not only a celebration of how children light up the world, but also to spread awareness about kids who have mental and physical illnesses. What I love about this National Day is that it gives kids a day of their own, and acknowledges that self care is an important practice regardless of how old you are.

Race Unity Day

Diversity in friendship circles in real life and the media is always heartwarming for me to see. I love seeing people of different races embrace each other’s differences–in fact, if there was more racial unity in this world, I think it would be a better place. Race Unity Day gives us an opportunity to educate ourselves on racism in our countries and world, how it has changed over the years, and what we can do to spread awareness for equal rights for all people regardless of their nationalities.


June 12 is a very special day due to its important meaning as it adresses diversity and the young people who make up over one fourth of the world’s population. I really enjoy looking at the National Day’s because they allow you to learn so much about what’s happening in the world, and the wonderful slices of life that deserve to be celebrated.

LET’S CHAT~Do you have a favorite National Day? If so, what is it?

Have a blessed day, y’all! See you laters! 💖
