My mantra for June is ‘What Will Be, Will Be.’ After having one of my May goals as 'Noticing More Opportunities', I quickly realized I was having a bad case of the 'What If's' every time a new opportunity popped up. For example, if I got excited by a new job application, I would think 'what … Continue reading HELLO JUNE: MONTHLY REFLECTIONS & INTENTIONS
This year I’ve been meditating everyday for 20 minutes; but sometimes there’s just NO time. I’ve found if I don’t do anything to create a momentary everyday, I become easily triggered, stressed, and anxious. And this is where “moderated meditation” comes in – I know, not a great name, but it’s all I could think … Continue reading INCORPORATE MEDITATION INTO YOUR EVERYDAY
One of the most difficult things about change is that we must let go of who we currently are – whether it be a habit, routine, mood, or viewpoint. Momentarily, we feel lost as we establish a new way of doing things. These past two weeks I’ve really been trying rise above the stuff that’s … Continue reading GETTING UN-STUCK MAY REQUIRE CHANGE
Sometimes things happen in life that we don't want to deal with. They’re complicated & sticky. It can be easy to stick our heads in the ground, let it sort itself out, and pretend we don’t need to have a conversation. We all know that is not the best way to do it, but there’s … Continue reading TALKING BRAVE: DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS
Another month and another day to keep on keepin' on. I looked at last year's intentions & I feel like I've become a different person. Is this a period of growth? Figuring things out? I'm just infuriated. I know the only person who can make change is me, but why can't I just DO IT. … Continue reading HELLO MAY: MONTHLY REFLECTIONS & INTENTIONS
This past weekend, I was home visiting my parents. Now, my mom is my best friend, my ride-or-die, but whenever she asks these four little words I cringe: HOW ARE YOU DOING? I know it's coming from love. She wants to be a support system, a shoulder to cry on, offer reassurance & just make … Continue reading YOU ARE NOT A BURDEN
This weekend I did some reflecting, a lot of reflecting actually. I poured my soul out to my therapist, mother & friends. I had a breakthrough in 'why I do the things I do.' It was eye-opening, surprising, and allowed to to connect-the-dots in certain areas of my life. And it brought a lifelong curiosity … Continue reading DOES ‘EVERYTHING HAPPEN FOR A REASON’?
I guess the internet is the perfect place to be vulnerable, so here I go. I'm currently laying down on my living room floor, making a body imprint on my shag rug, still in my pajamas from last night. I feel bloated, heavy, ashamed, pathetic, and misunderstood. It's no secret that fear and shame, by … Continue reading VULNERABILITY AMID THE STRUGGLE
We live in a world where media idealizes human perfection. There's always another milestone to be hit, pound to be lost, men to be met, & goal to be reached in order to be content. In order to turn inward & figure out my genuine wants, I have to block out the noise. I need … Continue reading MY VISION BOARD & A MANIFESTING MINDSET
A day in my shoes. 10 miles, 20k steps, sunshine, friends, family, cocktails, & even a little relaxation. What more can I ask for?
