Books that Changed my Life

It’s crazy to look back and realize that a book literally changed my life. I’m a pretty big reader anyway – I usually burn through 2-3 books a week. So while yes, I do read a lot, it also means that the ones that stand out are extra special. I realized I kept telling peopleContinue reading “Books that Changed my Life”

I walked past the mirror and looked at my flabby body up and down for the fiftieth time today. All I saw was a bloated face with a ridiculous second chin.

A Letter to my Body

Dear Body, I want to start off with an apology. I know I haven’t always treated you well. Not only did I not fully know what you needed, I straight up ignored you when you tried to tell me.

Episode 16: Do you believe you’re Deserving?

Have you ever thought about how you’re allowed to feel? What about what you deserve to feel? I feel like we’ve gotten so desensitized to what that even means.
