• Body Image & Self-Love (part 3)

    This is for all the people out there that are learning to love themselves in a world that’s constantly telling them not to… Last week we talked about self-care, this week is about self-love! I always try to choose my blog topics based on relevance in my life at the time–which is exactly what led me to this. As you probably know, a few months ago I moved from Missouri to Arizona! And while the midwest is currently being slammed with ice and snow storms, I’ve been wearing summer attire all week. #blessed On that note, the other day I went to get dressed and couldn’t pull my denim shorts…

  • Prioritizing ME

    We’re gonna start off today with a little exercise! (not the burpee kind, don’t worry) I want you to make a mental list… Note 5 things that you LOVE most in this world–GO!

  • You’re NOT Alone (Mental Health Awareness Month)

    It’s May. M-A-Y. Can you believe it!? I think I blinked twice, and yet here we are, almost half-way through the year… (help. is this what getting old feels like?) As yet another month flies by, another “Month of Awareness” comes along. This time, we’re talking MENTAL HEALTH. A topic that I personally feel very very strongly about, and am very upset at just how taboo our society seems to be with it.   We tend to dance around the subject, and avoid talking about it, even when it matters most. But if you know me, I am not one to do such a thing… So here I am, starting…
