Hi all! I hope you're as well as you can be during all this, and remembering to take time for yourselves daily—being as gentle and kind with yourselves as you are with your loved ones. I also hope you will hold me accountable to do the same, because many times I haven't been. Although I … Continue reading A Word
Hi everyone! I know it’s been a long time, but it’s been a long, hard year for most of us! It’s been a year of death and rebirth, death and rebirth over and over again. I’m grateful to have made it to the end of the year, and I’m especially grateful to be on the … Continue reading I’m Back. I’m Here.
One year ago, I took the plunge and posted my first blog post on this website, desperately clinging onto hope that I would finally begin to live life intentionally and help others in the process. This past year has been the most humbling, healing, magical year I’ve ever had, and I’m so grateful you all … Continue reading Happy Anniversary!
I want to start checking in more regularly between posts—perhaps with each season, or whenever it becomes clear to me that an update is needed. I finally feel like I am getting back into the swing of things here. I am being as consistent as I can be at this time, and it feels good … Continue reading Spring Update! 🌸🌼
I’m a work in progress—we all are. That doesn’t mean one day we’ll be able to stop the work, it means that as life progresses, so does the work. It grows as we do, meeting us where we are, consistently calling us to task. However, many of us miss out on new direction due to … Continue reading The Power of Discipline

I know I am a good friend—I’m fiercely protective, loyal to a fault, and a great listener—but … Continue reading The Power of Friendship
I’m tired. Honestly, I think most of us are tired. I feel like being tired has become the societal norm—we run ourselves ragged, complain we’re tired, allow our bodies to rest a few hours, and then repeat the cycle until days turn into years of exhaustion. It’s not normal. It’s not cool. It’s not healthy. … Continue reading Refilling My Cup
I am the kind of person people tell themselves they want to make proud. I am the kind of person who people put on a pedestal because they think I have myself together. I am the kind of person who people withhold things from because they think I’m going to look down on them. I … Continue reading Projection
“Well-behaved women seldom make history,” is how the saying goes, right? Well, I believe that the same saying can sort of be applied to the fallacy of being well-liked. It’s awesome to be well-liked. It feels nice, makes people think you’re nice, and can make you think you’re a great person (you probably are, but … Continue reading The Fallacy of Being Well-Liked
If you’ve learned nothing else about me thus far, you should know that I try to march to the beat of my own drum in all aspects of life. I try not to look around at what my peers are doing, because that’s their lane, not mine. I don’t feel like I’m behind in life … Continue reading Do I Want That? Or Did Society Tell Me To?
