The Bravery of Being Uncomfortable

I feel like I’ve been uncomfortable for years now, since leaving Southern California. I’m just not really good at being in Arizona, it doesn’t suit me.

At the end of the day, whichever side of the spectrum that you lean towards should be balanced […]

Self Love Happens One Step At A Time

My battle with self image has been a really long one. I’ve always nit-picked my body in the mirror and compared myself constantly to everyone around me including the heavily photoshopped images we are all constantly lapping up in the mass media. My weight has fluctuated and my journey with exercise has led me to some very unhealthy places, until […]
