I know the title of this article kind of sounds like a bummer. And I don’t mean to imply that you have terrible things wrong with you, although you might. But, that’s not a problem. Because guess what? So do I. And so does everyone. I’m 41 years old and I would like to think that I have many of my “issues” under control. I’m a super functional human being and I have really positive and healthy relationships that make me happy. However, over the last few weeks, some of my not-so-fab traits have been emerging, and I’m really motivated to improve them. And I’m so relieved these issues have danced into the light for me to face. Because, I can’t really become a better person if I don’t know what’s wrong with me in the first place. And neither can you! Continue reading YOU CAN’T BECOME A BETTER PERSON IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU
I’m really not knocking makeup at all. I truly want to be that woman who can put it on and wear it flawlessly. But, it’s just so problematic for me. And even though I downright worship women who rock the makeup look, and have fun with it, and play and experiment, I just can’t. Does this make me less of a woman? I don’t believe so, but it’s definitely something I’m grappling with. Like everything, it comes down to deep and inner happiness, and soul alignment. And even though I wanted to enjoy this experiment, my soul crumpled when I tried wearing makeup. And there’s just no getting around it. I just can’t do it. Continue reading MY SOUL CRUMPLED A LITTLE WHEN I TRIED WEARING MAKEUP
From my experience, the key to being happy at work is all about finding the right match. It’s kind of the same as finding a good relationship. You can work at it and improve yourself, reflecting and growing and changing along the way. However, if your partner sucks, or is just incapable of being decent, it really doesn’t matter what you do. And leaving becomes the best option for all parties involved. I do believe that the same is true for finding happiness at work. And it’s all about recognizing the warning signs. Continue reading HOW TO GET HAPPY AT WORK
I have been meaning to do a YouTube article for awhile. But I can be really fickle about my YouTube tastes and didn’t want to create a whole article about my faves, only to find that they have changed within a month. However, I have been super obsessed inspired by these channels lately, and figured I would just take this article by the balls and run with it. It’s also 100% possible that within a month from now, I won’t like any of these channels. Regardless, for now, I’m here to share with you my favorite YouTube channels and why I like them. Continue reading YOUTUBE CHANNELS THAT I OBSESSIVELY WATCH TO DECOMPRESS
I have been on such an emotional trip lately. And during one of my dark days, my partner and I were driving somewhere, with me in the passenger seat. I was feeling so anxious, and for a moment, I just closed my eyes. Breathing silently, I began focusing on the blackness behind my eyelids. And after only a few seconds, I started to feel instant relief for the first time in days and days. I go in and out of my meditation practice (I am currently so out right now). But in this moment, it was impossible to ignore the benefits of silence. What’s crazy is how easily I forget, and how long I let myself go without stepping into silence. So, for your information, but also to remind myself, I want to dive deep into exploring the benefits of entering into the silence zone. Continue reading THE BENEFITS OF ENTERING INTO THE SILENCE ZONE
Wow, the topics of body image and judgement are so huge. And I might be a total fool to try to tackle them. But, I think these are important topics for all women. We all want to believe we’re the best versions of ourselves at all times, but how can we possibly be? And I really would like to know, am I the only woman who goes into judgement mode when I look at other women? It’s terrible, I know, but sharing out loud about uncomfortable topics is my way of healing. So, without further ado, let’s let the healing begin! Continue reading BODY IMAGE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN LOOK AT OTHER WOMEN?
I’m not saying I’m totally comfortable with talking about masturbation. Even seeing the word feels kinda weird, doesn’t it? Typing it out certainly feels kind of weird. But why? Obviously, it’s a natural thing. And lots of men talk about it in SO many different, fun, and creative ways. So why can’t we? Why are we so embarrassed? In our culture, why is talking about female masturbation so taboo? Continue reading WHY IS TALKING ABOUT FEMALE MASTURBATION SO TABOO?
I don’t know if it’s because Mercury is in Retrograde, or what. This planet retrogrades from May 29th to June 22nd 2021, and with this galactic chaos comes implicit problems with communication and technology, among other things. I openly admit that I do not do well when things are out of my control. And a lot of adulting often consists of dealing with shit that I don’t have much control over. I can typically handle this kind of thing in small doses. But as this retrograde unfolds, and more and more shit becomes uncontrollable, I’m finding that adulting is hard, and I’m super struggling with it right now. Continue reading ADULTING IS HARD AND I’M STRUGGLING WITH IT RIGHT NOW
I don’t know about you, but I’m not the least bit ashamed of the fact that I go to therapy. I mean, are people still embarrassed to admit this? Or even embarrassed to go? The benefits of therapy, when you finally learn how to do therapy the right way, far outweigh any shame or embarrassment … Continue reading HOW TO DO THERAPY THE RIGHT WAY
I recently binged watched The Goop Lab with Gwyneth Paltrow on Netflix and she did an episode on female sexuality. This episode got me thinking about so many things, and why it’s so hard, as women, asking for what we want in the bedroom. I also appreciated how Gwyneth shared that as a young woman, she was mostly concerned with pleasing the guy. And only in her 40s did she start thinking about her own pleasure. I felt so validated by her honesty. And up until that point, I really thought I was the only woman who felt that way. Continue reading ASKING FOR WHAT WE WANT IN THE BEDROOM
