Why I choose to make choices from love vs. restriction & deprivation

Still on my Lent kick, so bear with me. And, if I think about it, I probably will be for the next 39 days 😉

If you recall, I wrote a blog on 19 things you should consider giving up for Lent. If you haven’t read it, obvi you should. They’re not your typical chocolate & alcohol sacrifices either.

Well, as we know, I vowed to pick one from this list (giving up feelings of unworthiness) & practice it religiously day and night for 40 days. I, along with many gals, struggle with this. Even if we look happy, pretty, confident & like we have it all, sometimes we really don’t know what’s going on inside. I’ve had a lifelong battle with an eating disorder and probably will always struggle with this to a certain degree.

During this time, we are often urged to give up something we adore or give of ourselves in some capacity we aren’t used to. Read More

Valentine’s Day Isn’t Just About Others

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about saying “I love you” to your other half. It’s not just about flowers, chocolates, wine & GALentine time.

It’s about self love too. And, I’m not just saying this for all the single ladies out there [hand raised]. Read More

Video: The key to a happier life

A friend shared this video with me a couple weeks ago when little life things were crashing and burning all around me and I felt a weight of a thousand bricks on my shoulders. Enough was enough at that point and I finally gave in…to letting it consume me. Along with feeling sorry for myself, I felt depressed, lost and shameful with no light at the end of the tunnel.
