It’s totally bittersweet for me, but I think this was my most favorite week of the whole season! It was so much fun to see the questions my fellow Season 7 rockstars came up with and I had a blast answering them. You may learn a few things about me that you didn’t want to know and for that I don’t really apologize…I’m quirky and I’m told its a pretty lovable trait. ENJOY!
At some point, I have to choose between continuing to let my fears rule my life, or taking a risk that other people will accept me and all my self-percieved flaws

I’ve felt like I’ve lost momentum in many aspects of my life, which has made me stop, and ask myself how the hell do you balance everything in your life?
Radical acceptance has a best friend. And that best friend is self compassion. While I’m all about my newfound appreciation for radical acceptance, I’m still finding it doesn’t quite get me in the frame of mind I need to be in to accomplish my goals and feel good about myself.
Some days all I want to do is wrap myself in a Pendleton blanket with the rain pouring outside, drink a cup of Good Earth tea or Ibarra hot chocolate, and read a delicious novel with intriguing characters and a good plot line. I’ve been having one of those weeks where I’m suffocated by tears that won’t fall
