My Journey: Food, Body Image, Hormones, and Grief
A couple of years ago I decided that I wanted to be fit, skinny, have rock hard abs, or in other words, look like the fitness models, Victoria’s Secret models, and as if I was in a fitness competition (sidenote, I never quite got there, I just got really tired and frail).
Ode to Life
I strive to live in the world of wonder, always discovering, growing and building beauty. I want nothing more than to bring this beauty and joy into the world as much as possible. 
Tapping into the Steady Rhythm of Life
Rush, rush, rush, rush, rush. That seems to be the theme these days. Life feels like a giant race most of the time as we all gallop around at full speed on our horses, often seemingly out of control and overwhelmed, about to crash at any moment, but somehow - somehow we manage to stay on. 
Imposter Syndrome and why it's OK to feel it ALL
I want to talk about something that has been on my mind lately, and as usual, it’s been on my mind because it’s happening to me. And that thing is feeling like an imposter in your own life or own body. It’s a horrible feeling. Sometimes, it’s physical, and sometimes, it’s mental. This feeling can occur when we feel inadequate or feel like we “should” be a certain way.

Is it really worth it?
"Is it really worth it?" This thought has popped into my mind on many occasions and in many circumstances over the years, and especially as of late.

How to stop taking yourself so dang seriously! - Four of the biggest takeaways after living 30 years on this earth
I love birthdays and I love my birthday. I know it sounds self-centered but I really do. Why? It’s a beautiful day where you get to celebrate yourself - I mean, wow! You get to celebrate yourself! Your wonderful, beautiful, fantastic self! Is there anything better than that?!
My Biggest Secret - The Real Truth About My Life
The absolute, 100% raw, real and sobering truth is that I ache for my home. I ache for my hometown and my family and even (I may kick myself for saying this) the snow. The real truth is that I’ve been running my whole life. I have been running away from myself and to myself simultaneously. I have lost myself and found myself a thousand times. 
It's OK - Even when it feels like it's not
I was going to write this big, inspirational post on how to love yourself and how important self care is, and how it’s OK if you’re alone on Valentine’s Day. I was going to write about a sure-fire way to love yourself, how to truly get to your own core and forgive yourself. I was going to write about how this is the most important thing in life.
