Mile Markers

We live lives full to the brim with various events and doings, but only a handful of them are mile markers. Events that mark a significant period of time, events that veer us off course, and – if we were a house – these… Continue Reading “Mile Markers”

Landmines

If you don’t love yourself and feel wholly worthy as you are, this is the evidence. These are the landmines you’re planting your relationships. The doubts, the questioning, the need for validation, and for someone else to be responsible for your emotional regulation. I know, because I used to plant them and then be surprised when they would erupt in my face.

The Pull of Self Abandonment

Recently I reflected on what happens when you step outside of your comfort zones to change, grow, and bloom into something new.

I’ve gotten used to the voice in my head, the mean girl who tells me I’m not good enough. Not thin enough. Not smart enough. Not financially stable enough. Not pretty enough. Not feminine enough. Not enough. There has been a perpetual bar in… Continue Reading “Introducing My Inner Voice”

It’s Just a Detour

Jobs I’d applied for that seemed a perfect fit passed me over. All things… Continue Reading “It’s Just a Detour”
