I’m So Excited; Should I Try To Hide It?

I was feeling lonely and sad, for no particular reason. It was the culmination of a months-long, inexplainable funk. It was in that moment I realized I was craving DEPTH. Of friendships, of self knowledge, of self exploration.

Self Care vs Self Comfort: What do you really need?

When rewarding yourself with a shopping trip becomes the only way to lift your spirits, your pampering is becoming dangerous.

When caring for yourself turns into distracting or numbing or avoiding, it’s time to pause. It’s time to check in with yourself — what are you really craving in those moments?

Jumping Into the Unknown

I know I can’t let fear rule my life. At some point I have to choose to jump into the unknown or remain in the same stagnant place I’ve been. I’m trying hard to work up the courage to jump because I really don’t want to be in the same place when November 2013 rolls around.

The Peace that Comes from Naming your Passion

I want to be a model of a woman who loves herself, who finds joy in ordinary places, who celebrates her individuality – and I want to pay it forward.
