When it comes to faith, there are far more uncertainties than strongholds, but there is something I know to be true.
Moving to a new city, there are a lot of unknowns. When I graduated from college in 2014, I followed my then boyfriend (now husband) to Atlanta. I had a good job there, and we were happy, but I didn't find the friendships or community connections I needed. After just shy of two years there, … Continue reading Feminine Feature: Alyssa Kuzins
Today, on a tumultuous day for all Americans, we need to remember what matters most. We can't control everything, we can hardly control anything, but we can control ourselves and our own actions. We can control how much love we give, and how much we keep for ourselves. Today, instead of casting hate and worry … Continue reading MIND, BODY & SPIRIT: A JOURNEY OF SELF-LOVE, Part II
I've been thinking about and practicing stillness this month, attempting to manifest the physical sensations of the emotional state I currently find myself in. For the last two and a half years since I graduated college, our world has been in constant flux. We moved to Atlanta, we traveled to New England and North Carolina … Continue reading Stillness & Gratitude.
My friend and fellow yogi, Alyssa, has a phrase she uses to describe the endless coincidences and connections that surround her life. She says things are “weird, not weird.” You know when people say, “sorry, not sorry?” They’re acknowledging that socially it’s probably the right thing to be “sorry” and yet they are not.
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.

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
Going through The Desire Map process was therapeutic, and really tied together a lot of pieces for me. Last Fall I participated in Seth Godin's altMBA program, where we pushed ourselves and our peers to dive deep and find our "why." We analyzed our actions and our goals, and dreamed about what we could … Continue reading Filling in the Circle
It wasn't until this morning when I got to work that I began to feel settled back into my real world. As some of you already know, I went to my first yoga retreat this weekend, with a group of wonderful women from all around the Pittsburgh area. Alyssa, the yogi who led the trip, rented … Continue reading How Do You Want to Feel?
Last night I left work and journeyed to my very first yoga retreat. 7 women and our yogi guide, Alyssa, are staying in a cabin in a nearby state park, spending 4 days practicing, meditating, eating well and connecting in new and deeper ways to ourselves and to each other. One of the biggest challenges … Continue reading Unplugged
