Alright, y’all might or might not know that I LOVE StitchFix. I tried StitchFix a little over a year ago. I wanted clothes that fit, were nice, and weren’t leggings, t-shirts, and oversized sweatshirts. Can you say #basiccollegewardrobe? Mind you, I didn’t realize how much my body would change over this last year, so it
I have found writing about this week’s chapter more challenging than previous chapters. Usually when I’m reading it I have a way that I can relate and a story I want to share. And this chapter that didn’t happen. I was struck by what Brown was saying about feedback. She talks about how our culture
I kinda loved this chapter because it was a nice break from some of the intense self-knowledge I’ve gained from the other chapters. This chapter sets us up for the next couple.

My boyfriend quotes movies and I get totally lost as to what he’s referencing. Anyway! I’m really excited about a new month, new beginning.
Last week I was listening to Dr Mariza’s podcast, you can find it on itunes. The episode I was listening to talked about the importance of routine. Over the last year-ish I’ve struggled to have a routine. I used to have a morning routine where I’d wake up make my coffee and sit down in
I often write about oils, ways I’m using my oils, favorite blends for oils, etc. A friend of mine who enrolled with doTERRA and had never used oils before expressed to me feelings of discouragement when it came to using oils because she felt they didn’t work for her in the way they work for
We all have shame. We all have good and bad, dark and light, inside of us. But if we don’t come to terms with our shame, our struggles, we start believing that there’s something wrong with us – that we’re bad, flawed, not good enough – and even worse, we start acting on those beliefs.
As a young, unmarried woman, with minimal responsibilities, it’s easy for me to make time for self care. Over the last few weeks I’ve had a couple people tell me they’re in survival mode and self care has completely gone out the window because they just simply don’t have time for it. They feel like
