A Change In Perspective

Perspective is the lens through which you see the world. Basically we are all walking around this planet with the most unique pair of sunglasses on our Earth, our perspective. Have you ever been in a conversation and said something that was COMPLETELY misinterpreted? Two people, same conversation, two different interpretations. How is that possible? Yes, you SAID that but you didn’t mean it THAT way. Why would the think that? Were they even listening to you? Yes, but they…

GIVEAWAY

What To Expect In 2018 + A HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY

Starting something new is both exciting and daunting. When I set out to start my blog the mere idea of posting on social media almost every day while posting at least once a week on the blog made me so uncomfortable. I thought I would never be able to come up with enough things to talk about. And yet, here I am 37 weeks later having posted almost every day on social media and took only 2 weeks off from…

Beating The Self Sabotage Spiral

Is Mercury in retrograde or what? Full disclosure I'm not completely sure what that means, all I know is the funk is real. I can't quite pin point what is putting me in a funk, I think it's Impatience. Feeling like I should be further along than I am is a vice for me. Having moments of momentum and excitement when pursuing a dream followed by down moments, where it doesn't seem as if anything is actually going your way…

When The Honeymoon Phase Is Over AF

Remember when you used to look at each other with hearts in your eyes? Couldn’t keep your hands off each other? It’s the best feeling in the world.

Then, even though you were sure it would never happen, comfort sets in, routine sets in, now you live together! He leaves his freakin’ shoes in the middle of the kitchen floor. You…

The Number One Thing I Use To Make Decisions

“Trust your intuition,” “trust your gut,” we get it! We’ve seen that quote a million times on Pinterest and if you click the hashtag #quoteoftheday I’m sure you’ll find it posted a million more times. If you don’t know this already, I LOOOVE a good inspirational quote. But, it irks me when a really important or profound statement gets overused to the point where we are almost desensitized to it; “Trust your intuition,” is one of those quotes for me.…

How I Overcame Social Anxiety

You might be surprised to know that I grew up with some serious social anxiety. Wait, what? The bubbly, charismatic, center of attention deals with social anxiety? No, way. Didn’t your mom ever teach you not to judge a book by its cover? I’ve had conversations about having social anxiety with people who also deal with it, and the truth is everyone just copes with it differently. Some retract and distance themselves; I over compensated by forcing myself to be…

There Is Nothing Wrong With You

"There is nothing wrong with you" - is what I wish someone would have said to me when I was young and struggling with my mental health/anxiety.   “ Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. “ -mentalhealth.gov I found this quote while writing a blog about combating stress for one of my clients, and I thought…

To Whom It May Concern, This is a letter to me, but also to you, because if you’re reading it then lets just assume you need to hear it too. Everything is going to work out the way it is supposed to, what is for you will never miss you. It will always find it’s way to you. It may be right in front of your nose. The thing you want is already there, it already exists out there, just…
