Be your own validation Only you see you When you "beautify" and before When your days are gray When you haven't washed your hair in "I don't know how long" When you dance around naked to your playlist When you scrape yourself off the bathroom floor with tear-stained cheeks Only you know you Only you … Continue reading Do you validate?
It's always bitter sweet when I hear my loved ones say that they're proud of me. Part of me needs to hear that (hello Words of Affirmation is my prime love language) The other part of me feels undeserving of those words. At times it feels as if I'm not doing enough. On the outside … Continue reading Proud of You
Wow. HI! I feel like I haven't been here in a while. Perhaps because I truly haven't been inspired to write. Instead, I've found more inspiration in analyzing my past year. It seems that I got too bogged down in churning out content. Too carried away with the social aspect of getting my writings … Continue reading This Season
Our parents. I mean, they're family, right? So, we have to love them...right? I believe so. In spite of the mistakes, in spite of our realization that holy crap, they aren't perfect....we love them. We don't always like them. And it seems like we blame them for every messed up thing about us- it … Continue reading Judging, Grudges, and Our Parents
I’ll admit it, I was dipping my toes into the adulthood pool. Sure, I live on my own and run my own business. But I had no idea about the other factors of adulting. I went from dipping my toes in to check the temp, to being tossed in with all of my clothes on. … Continue reading True Life: Idk Wtf I’m Doing

So if you have been following me on here for a while now, you know I have been experimenting with different social platforms to find what fits best with my personality, my message, and my delivery of my message. Other than this written blog, I think that I've finally found another platform that … Continue reading I STARTED A PODCAST!!!
Let's start off with the truth. We ALL judge. What we judge people on may vary. Societal standards, our own values/morals, politics, blah, blah, blah. The list goes on and on. I'm learning, though. I'm starting to realize when I'm doing it. Starting to ask myself in that moment, "have I ever done something like … Continue reading Judgement
This weekend, I learned that some people will do anything they can to hold onto the "victim" card. For them, it will always be "what you did to me!" Despite the innumerous attempts to squash the beef. Despite the knowledge of how to get out of the situation, they will decide to continue to bring … Continue reading Love Them From A Distance
Last night, I ventured into new territory. There was an entrepreneurship mixer being held at the cutest salon that I've seen in my area. Sounds simple enough, right? For me, though, it was much more complicated of a decision to make. My business hours are from 6am-6pm, Monday through Friday. … Continue reading Mix and Mingle: An Introvert’s Prospective
I know, I know... I preach about mental health and maintaining peace. I must be the world's most zen. Never stressing. Never annoyed. Always smiling and glowing. Please don't think that way. I have down days and they tend to linger. I'm not always smiling and meditating. Honestly, I end up avoiding meditation when I … Continue reading Present in the Dark
