I want to empower you with tools for your own journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and love. I’m going to call these sections “Warrior Wednesdays,” because being a Warrior is all about knowing, trusting, and accepting yourself in every way. By knowing yourself, you can live authentically even when the world pushes you in unexpected ways. … Continue reading Warrior Wednesday: The Desire Map
This time of year, as the days get shorter and our workloads seem heavier than ever, we become more susceptible to seasonal affective disorder, seasonal depression, and in turn negative self-talk. Those of us who battle depression year-round are especially likely to feel lower as the daylight hours decrease and the leaves begin to fall. I’ve felt this year after year. As the evenings become darker earlier, I find myself eager to get home and just cozy up on the couch. I skip yoga classes, and say no to plans with friends. Meals sometimes become secondary, as does my sleep schedule and my morning routine. I’m lucky to get out of the house with two matching shoes and a cup of coffee some days.
Prompt: If I were practicing deep self love, I would start....and I would stop.... I want to start by saying, I truly believe self-love is the beginning of all happiness. Why we don't teach our children this in elementary school, is beyond me. I'm not perfect, but I have a lot of self-care already build … Continue reading Write It Out Challenge Day #4

Good morning, lovely people! It's Saturday, a sleepy, cold Saturday, and a perfect day to look for the light in our lives. On Christmas Eve each year, my mother gathered us around the tree after dinner. The few presents that preceded Santa were wrapped with precision, and adorned in pretty bows. Three identical packages always … Continue reading Day #9, Traditions
Last night, while I meditated, I imagined myself sitting in the center of a large, open, wooden room. It was white, but sort of white-washed and worn. There were windows in front of me, behind me, and to either of my sides. Four pillars supported the ceiling in a square around me. The only door … Continue reading Spiritual Travel
After I post on my blog, or upload something new to Instagram, I always click through the posts with the same hashtags I used. At first, I think I did this to get more attention on social media. Now, I do it for inspiration. To see what other creative spirits are putting out into the … Continue reading Full of Life
Last night, I went on the best first date I've been on in years...except it was with 29 other women, no men, and instead of dinner and movie, we made succulent terrariums at an all natural beauty and skin-care shop in Lawrenceville. I know, best date ever. I was supposed to meet Aaron's sister there, … Continue reading Flying Solo
