Why Do We Second Guess Ourselves?
Have you ever been doing something and think “oh my gosh did I do that right?” This happens to me. It used to be quite paralyzing. I would make myself crazy with the mental gymnastics of trying to figure out the exact right steps, the right words, the right whatever. What I have learned is […]
You are Mighty
“You are mighty and magnificent beyond measure, grasshopper. You are meant to blossom into the fullest expression of your unique badassery.” Jen Sincero I quite like this quote as it hits home for me at the moment. Have you ever been going along and felt like you are holding yourself back? Have you ever been […]
Books, Books, More Books Please!
Funny little story … when I was a little girl I loved to read. I had these wonderful storybooks called big little books. I still have them all these years later. Then I went to school and my love of reading left me. It got sucked right out of me. At school we had to […]
“Everybody is a Genius.”
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. -Albert Einstein I came across this quote and it stuck with me. Words are such powerful weapons and whether they’re wheeled with malice or not they can […]

Luxury? Yes or No?
How do you view self-care and putting yourself first? This is an area that has always been a struggle for me at least perceptively. It has been a block for a long time until it dawned on me that I see putting myself first/self-care as a luxury. It’s fascinating how our inner chatter takes over […]
Be on the Dance Floor!
“Opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor.” Jackson Browne This quote for me is really resonating at the moment. The quote indicates that you have to be living life (on the dance floor) for opportunities to be available to you. I liken this too if you are sitting on the couch […]
We have to matter on the inside. Mattering is not an outward concept. We have been taught when we outwardly matter that increases our value, our worth. But the reality is all of that has to be anchored, rooted, and known on the inside for us to feel valuable and worthy. For some of us, […]
The dictionary definition of justification is “the action of showing something to be right or reasonable” or ‘the act or an instance of justifying something: Vindication.” This word has been popping into my head lately. Have you ever been in a conversation and feel like you are trying to justify your existence, your view, your […]
