Finding Ways to Eat Healthier

I love eating out. I mean I like, really love it, and that’s on as the kids say these days, “period”. I am such a foodie, whenever a new restaurant pops up in town, I am usually the first in line. But I’ve noticed the more I eat out, the unhealthier I tend to eat; because truth be told, I am a sucker for … Read More Finding Ways to Eat Healthier

Me Time = Bath Time

Taking time for yourself is essential, and for months I failed to see how important “me-time” really is. I work three jobs, I have a fiancĂ© and three fur-babies that need my attention, and I also am a masters student. And when it comes down to time, there just simply isn’t ever enough. I was finding that I had no time for myself, because … Read More Me Time = Bath Time

Money Vs. Opportunity

“Money will always come, but opportunities to make memories, will come and go if you don’t act upon them”. I’ll be completely honest, I am not the most financially responsible if you will, I like to spend and think about the consequences later. My debt card and even sometimes my credit card, I think hate me. But, I’ve begun to realize that I have … Read More Money Vs. Opportunity

No one prepares you for the athlete fifteen. Yes, I said it… the athlete fifteen, kind of like the freshman fifteen but this happens when you are engaged to an athlete. I mean it makes sense right, a college athlete works out everyday. Me on the other hand until recently, only worked out maybe twice a week so I wouldn’t feel bad about the … Read More Creating A Healthy Relationship With Food

Women Empowering Women

In our society, women are taught to be competitive with one another. We are taught to be the prettiest and the smartest in the room. We will go to great lengths to gossip and undermine one another for personal gain. Oh, and don’t even get me started on if a man is involved… it can be deadly. But have you ever thought about what … Read More Women Empowering Women

Live Your Truth

Living your truth is not easy, especially when society is pressing you to become something you are not. My friends and I often discuss the pressure to live out our truths, in a society demanding perfection. How am I supposed to be natural and real, when those who speak out against our typical societal norms are ridiculed for being different? Well I’ll tell you … Read More Live Your Truth

It Is Easy To Be Kind

Have you ever paid for someone’s coffee at a coffee shop, donated supplies to your local homeless shelter, tipped your waiter and/or waitress your bill, or even complimented someone’s outfit, just because? How did those experiences make you feel? Or has anyone ever done any of those things for you? If so, I can imagine speaking from my own experiences, that it may have … Read More It Is Easy To Be Kind

Finding Wholeness in a Broken World

A global pandemic, political chaos, protests around the world fighting against racism, wildfires and more, all in one year. No matter what you stand for, this is a lot of information to process, and now more than ever we need to find wholeness in ourselves, in a time lacking fulfilment.
