Self-acceptance, where’s your head at?

The more I dive into this work, the more my own journey of self discovery deepens. I wholeheartedly believe that ignorance is not bliss. When we lack awareness, we stagger blindly through life, steeped in a history of those that have influenced us along the way. Don’t get me wrong – …

A Dating Year in Review

I don’t know about you, but 2016 has been a big year. And as tradition dictates, it’s this time of year that we are encouraged to reflect upon what has passed, as we begin to plan for the future. This rings ever more true for your love life, which coincidentally …

Peek-A-Boo

Relationships come in many shapes and sizes, but all begin typically in the same way – two people meet and begin to share parts of themselves in hopes of finding commonality, mutual appreciation and a romantic connection. A relationship is not built on a game of peek-a-boo. Cute with babies, …

Love Divine(r)

I was thinking about how often we operate from a place of lack. Putting our energy and focus on what we don’t have. I certainly have been guilty of this myself, and have come to understand that it doesn’t serve me well. How can we garner more in our lives, …

What’s your story?

We are all story tellers, whether we recognize that in ourselves or not, we are. We tell stories every day, in our regular communication, sharing an experience, how our day went, plans for the future, goals, dreams – they are all stories. How often though are we really aware of …
