How do you ease yourself into the shoes of someone you haven’t met yet? I’ve been on a self-love journey for just over four years now, although I feel like I’ve climbed through many chapters until I landed at this page. This year has been very different from the rest, not because it has been…

You are a powerful and phenomenal being

 On your down days, do you forget about your greatness too?  I’ve been friends with anxiety and depression (or maybe they’ve been friends with me) for quite some time, only this year I have been super proactive in addressing the root cause.   Self-care is no joke and as much as we can say affirmations…

Why I almost gave up on writing (and what happened instead).
