I can’t sleep

I've been getting back in touch with myself and it's a good thing. It has involved changing how I dress, act, speak, wear my makeup--- everything. so as to be more authentic. I know there's a time to be professional but I'm becoming much more comfortable expressing myself and not hiding who I really am--- [...]

Blogust 12

Had a great weekend. Definitely overate yesterday, but for whatever reason I'm not beating myself up about it like I normally would. I still lifted today and plan to do cardio (zumba) tomorrow. I try to live by not waiting until you like how you look to go out and do things. You'll never reach [...]

Blogust 3

I felt very bad earlier today. Making plans often triggers me in ways I don't readily become aware of. I've dealt with flakey people a lot and I'm a firm believer that you should never chase people to hang out with you. If they want to, they will. Period. However, my past and my anxiety [...]

If I haven't always believed that, I absolutely do now. It is so helpful to know yourself well if you [...]

Healing Sea

The sea air heals me. When the sun and it touch my skin it creates a perfect temperature, peace, and sensation both within and outside of me so that the boundary between myself and nature is blurred. I am reawakened to the notion, the truth, that there is no separation. I am a part of [...]

Wellness Wednesday: Grief

My new year started off pretty grand with dancing and fun, but then when I woke up I learned that I had to say goodbye to one of my best friends that happens to have fur. I've been through this before, 4 times to be exact, but it never gets easier. I sort of knew [...]

Women Invest More of Themselves

Somehow amidst all of my end of semester madness, I am doing some extra reading. I am reading a book about the trauma related to experiencing infidelity in a relationship. The author makes the claim: Women are more easily traumatized because they invest more of themselves in relationships. I agree with this. It has been [...]
