Let me start by saying, yoga is completely out of my wheel house AND my comfort zone. I was initially intimidated by trying yoga. I’ve only been exposed to it through the social media influencer lens – unnatural postures? complicated twists & turns? beautiful beaches? perfect toned bodies? ‘No way, I thought, I don’t have … Continue reading YOGA: MY FIRST 30 DAYS
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
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

A day in my shoes. 10 miles, 20k steps, sunshine, friends, family, cocktails, & even a little relaxation. What more can I ask for?
GOODBYE AUGUST Well ... goodbye birthday month! 26 is here and it's been a rollercoaster so far: ups & downs, highs & low, twists & turns. I watched one of my best friends get married, got to see my boyfriend, spent 2-weeks on Jury Duty, came back into work in awe of the kindness of … Continue reading HELLO SEPTEMBER: MONTHLY REFLECTIONS & INTENTIONS
Welcoming 26 with open arms!! 25 was good to me. It was a year that brought lots changes in terms of self discovery and growth. It included a lot of work, patience, time figuring out how to prioritize my energy, and what I need in order to feel fulfilled. All of these realizations brought great … Continue reading CHEERS TO 26!
I truly believe expectations hinder our ability to be at peace. Expectations cause unhealthy attachments to perfection, people, things, the future, and outcomes we wish we could control; but can't. If you keep up with the blog, you know I had a bumpy June (can read here). As I was re-playing the month in my … Continue reading NO MORE EXPECTATIONS
Balancing a career, social life, mental health, children, relationships, and LIFE can be quite challenging. Whether you're in school, an entrepreneur, working at a desk, a mother, or a combination; self-care looks different for all of us. I've written about the importance of self-care multiple times (check them out here); and while I'm still a … Continue reading TAKE A BREAK: WHY IT’S ESSENTIAL & IDEAS
