I’ve been over analyzing and dissecting my life and myself as of late, after something didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Being in Tulum, amidst nature’s simplicity, and with genuine friends, has allowed me to get grounded, out of my head, and really understand that what’s meant to be will be and completely…

My 30’s have been some of the toughest years of my life. Certain events that occurred triggered deep wounds from my adolescent years all over again. Abandonment, depression, anxiety, lack of self worth, feeling unworthy of unconditional love. And while I know the saying you should always love yourself unconditionally, ironically, it’s also one of…

When my father took my mother’s life at age 5, I had no idea the mountain of emotional complexity I’d be climbing for years to follow, all the way into my adulthood. I lived with about 4 different families by the time I was a young teen with many different identities; conforming myself to fit…

I haven’t spoken on gun violence but it’s hard not to share my opinion with so much tragedy in the world created by them, especially over this past weekend… I HATE guns. I have zero tolerance for them. I hate that people can purchase a gun so freely with the power to take someone’s life….

I feel like grief is a topic that is not talked about enough. The same with depression and anxiety. In fact, research has found that anxiety goes hand in hand with grief. It’s the missing stage that doesn’t get much attention. I guess my whole point of this is I sometimes don’t know what my…

When you give yourself stillness to feel, space to deal, and time to heal, you enter into a relationship with yourself. This can be uncomfortable for some as it requires solitude. But within this stillness and space you create, you find comfort in your own company. You learn how to pick yourself up, how to…

I remember when I never thought brighter days would come. I pretended to believe they would, since they say your thoughts are so powerful…but come on, let’s be real…pretending and really believing in something are completely different. I can now say from experience, which I never thought would happen (and it’s only been so recently),…

I’ve often been asked how I got into yoga. By sharing, I hope yoga might be what helps you heal. I was introduced to Core Power and became instantly hooked. Physically at first, and then mentally, once I started to feel what was going on deeper inside of me. This internal awareness developed during a…

My dog, Lyle, took off sprinting yesterday on a busy road. He was going so fast, and no matter how hard I ran, I couldn’t begin to catch up. As I ran barefoot down the street, everything around me seemed to be in slow motion. My legs were moving too slowly, yet I felt my…
