This song has been on repeat in my head for the past couple days. I'll tell you why...
Last weekend was a pretty epic one for me. My mom, sister, and I met up for a women's weekend retreat a long time in the making. Just the three ladies and about 15 other of our closest lady strangers. Read More
What are your desires?
The New Year. A time to make promises and goals for yourself. But what is beyond those goals? What are your desires?
I ask, because you can make these dreams of yours come true. Whether its getting healthy, or losing the weight, meeting the man of your dreams, or taking that dream vacation. Did you know, that you can put these desires in motion and transform them to reality? Read More
In a world that constantly creates content, information, and motivation around self-improvement, a better life, better bodies, better homes, and a better self, I have been thinking lately about how we can all approach our personal growth in a gentler, kinder way. In a way that accepts and celebrates who we are at our core, while pushing and supporting ourselves to grow and step into what our unlimited potential has to offer. Read More
Does the idea of summer sound more lovely than the reality often ends up being? Do you dream about swimming pools, sunshine, carefree days, and friends + family gathered at outdoor BBQs laughing and smiling? Read More
Before the past few weeks, I can't tell you the last time I felt bored. For pretty much as long as I can remember there has always been so much to do, so much available to keep me preoccupied. Read More
The best lesson I've learned this year was not how to make turmeric milk, although that one was pretty tasty. It was not learning to be a new kind of mom, although that was fun, challenging, silly, and heart opening. And neither was it learning and applying the Marie Kondo method (but that was another great one) or learning to be still (so good!) or how to put myself out there. Read More
The old journal. You probably had something like it when you were little, no? The flowery, pink diary with a lock and key? It was a diary then, and its a journal now. No matter what you choose to call it, a collection of paper for you to unleash your thoughts and to allow your mind + heart to unload is an excellent way to tune in and discover more about you. To connect deeper within and to create space in your day for you to be expressive. To not hold back. Our minds are so busy with all we have going on, but when you take several minutes to sit down and focus your thoughts and emotions onto paper, something changes. You start engaging in your life in a different way and you begin to listen to yourself and show up on a higher level. Read More
What if we were to focus on the greatness of others, instead of holding onto to their imperfections and their less than perfect qualities? How would your life be different?
As humans, we have both areas where we excel and other places where we could greatly improve. And no one is the exception to this rule. Read More
Today I'm over at maddymoon.com talking about how my grief actually helped me have a better relationship with myself. It is a raw, vulnerable, and authentic piece that came straight from my heart. No filter, just me. Read More
There was one point in my life when 'more' mattered. I wanted more money, more experiences checked off a my list, more projects in the works, more outfits in my closets.... more, more, and more of more. I thought that more was better. In my youth, I struggled with food and believed the more fresh baked cookies I could pile on top of my emotions would mean the more comforted I would feel. In my teens, I turned to material goods and thought more expensive handbags would result in a heightened experience and a cooler, more confident self. In my college years, I thought more partying, more distraction, and the more pounds I could drop, would equate to more happiness. And recently in my twenties, I thought the more I could accomplish in my day to day, the more fulfilled and powerful I would find myself. I thought that if I could accomplish more that I could on some level be able to value myself more. I have always thought more was the way. Wow, was I wrong. Read More
