I am a different person than who I was a month ago. Gross. I hate being that pretentious asshole that declares their self evolution. I seriously debated about writing this post, to be honest with you. Some things do need to be said, especially since this is a mental health blog. It is absolutely vital… Continue reading Gaining momentum
This post isn't really for me, as much as it is for you. Please read at your own will and take as much as you want. Sometimes seeing our feelings validated in written form is more healing than we can comprehend. So, here's to you, dear reader: People post online, "Adulting is hard." I'll let… Continue reading You are stronger than you think.
Sorry, I've been out. Or rather, I've been in. Inside the lucid chaos that is my psyche. I have learned that as I near age 30, a baby by all accounts, I still bear witness to some horrific things. Life is hard. And the trials and tribulations never stop. It is an endless cycle of what once… Continue reading Lines in the sand

I know that I have been MIA for quite some time now, and I have strong hope that I will be fully back within the next couple of weeks, but until then I just wanted to express my thoughts and concerns revolving around a certain… Continue reading Intentional Internet
Well, it has been a full month since my last "post" (the one where I said I was taking a break) I don't want to neglect my blog. It is such a part of my spirit to write, but honestly everything is harder than it should be right now. To make a very long story… Continue reading Where have I been?
January is quickly coming to an end. It's gone by pretty quickly, hasn't it! I know so many people who set goals for themselves and then who stopped short and decided to quit trying. Here's the thing, it's better to fuck shit up and fail than it is to not try at all. A lot of… Continue reading Let’s talk about motivation.
Warning: This post is very wordy, apparently we have a lot to say about PCOS! In the past week I have had numerous friends vent their frustrations about PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome. In a society that is so focused on feminine beauty, it can be hard to live with a hormonal imbalance that makes women… Continue reading A chat about PCOS
If you have never seen the movie called "The Family Stone," I highly recommend it. It is my all time favorite holiday movie, because of the chaos that is family and the emotional context that is portrayed in nearly every scene. We see Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker), a high strung career woman initially fail to… Continue reading Smoke and mirrors in the living room
Thanksgiving is this week, can you believe it?! With the added stress of the holiday decadence, I knew that I had to introduce you guys to one of my very best friends. Michelle has lost a total of 130 pounds and I had to pick her brain on how she did it. Also, I am… Continue reading Meet Michelle (an interview- part 1)
I've had an interesting week, to say the least! Sadly, this weekend I have been sick and in bed most of the time. Tea, soup, some reading, and my favorite candle have helped. In addition to family snuggles, of course! R had to work for about 15 hours on Friday and 15 hours on Saturday,… Continue reading Sunday Musings…
