The Problem with Change

Do you like change or do you hate it? Do you thrive off it or does it paralyze you? Are we meant to stay the same forever, or does learning happen in the process of change, growth and evolution? I think we all know the answer, so why are we all so damn afraid of …

All Good Things…

I've come to the realization that things are never quite what they seem. I don't care if I'm looking at a bucket of sand. Maybe it's not a bucket of sand, maybe it's the remnants of a fossil, broken and finely crushed over time. Time so gradual that no one even noticed the fossil turned …

Motherhood is a Spiritual Experience

I don't care what your faith is, what color you are, what shape you are, or what language you speak. Whether a higher power has always been present in your life, or you believe your destiny is solely based on being a good person who does the right thing to the best of your ability. …

Don’t Tell Me Halloween is Just One Day Out of the Year

If you're a parent, you're hyper-aware that Halloween isn't just one day out of the year. No. We WISH it was, but no. Halloween isn't just a tutu, a mask, or a simple costume, no.

The Great Expectations of Motherhood: Getting Out of Our Own Way

I'm not ashamed to say that motherhood has been by far the hardest thing I've ever done. The day to day struggle of taking care of little ones while trying to take care of myself, it's an exhaustion no one could have prepared me for. Late nights, early mornings, midnight surprises, the physical strain is …

To My Best Friend Just Starting Her Life, The Best is Yet to Come

My best friend is getting married in less than two weeks, and I couldn't be happier for her. She's waited patiently for this moment. A moment that feels long overdue with fate's fingerprints all over it. Over the course of 13 years, we've been inseparable. We've been through it all together and to see her …

The Faces of Depression & Anxiety: We Are Not Alone

I can't speak for anyone else, but I know I'm not alone when I say I'm struggling. I've been struggling and the day came to finally do something about it. Anxiety has had a presence in my life since I was a young girl. Unfortunate circumstances and stressful times dealt me a hand of heavy …

I Am A Mother, I Am Not Enough

  The world of motherhood has done two things to me. It has broken me down, and it has shown me who I really am. I'm not speaking in negative terms, I'm speaking in honest terms. I've been a mother for just over eight years, which also means, I've been on a path of self …
