Why Creating A New Year Theme Can Work Magic

By | 2017-12-27T01:42:02+00:00 29th December 2016|Inspiration|0 Comments

My self-love journey started with learning how to say no. In my 20s I ran myself ragged from attempting to work a full-time job in a major city, riding my bike to get my graduate degree after work, and saying yes to every social outing and invitation. My life was very full, and while I sometimes miss that, I was exhausted. The exhaustion was turning into anxiety, questioning my decisions, and restlessness. At ...

Have you ever felt like a fraud or been afraid that you would be found out? This is a fear that sooo many women have and it's called the Imposter Syndrome. I had dealt with it for years and honestly, it kind of sucks. It's the feeling that no matter how beautiful people tell you you are, or how talented and smart, how many straight A's you get or degrees you have or ...

It’s not as easy as it looks

A few weeks after giving birth to Kai, an acquaintance of mine had a baby and posted on Facebook "every day feels like Christmas morning" in regards to life with a newborn. My heart sank. In essence, I was not feeling like every day was Christmas morning. Far from it. I was feeling a range of emotions from overwhelming love and gratitude, to total despondency and doubt. Questions started going through my head ...

When Some Days You Just Have Nothing

By | 2018-01-13T18:47:28+00:00 14th June 2016|Inspiration, Motherhood, Self-Love|6 Comments

Saturday didn't start out great. I had a client call, which I was late to, because I couldn't find my phone. I was beyond tired and didn't know why. I was frustrated and a little worried about being so tired. There were errands that needed to be run but I didn't want to do them. And Kai was teething and wouldn't settle down because he was in pain. Some days, you just have ...

Why We Self-Sabotage and How to Stop It

When my son was born, everyone told me, "just enjoy the time, it goes so fast." Here I had everything I wanted. A beautiful, healthy baby. A nice home in a great city. A wonderful husband. A thriving business. So why, when everything was so great, would I find myself stuck in worry and unable to enjoy the moment? And then I would think about how fast it goes, and get upset I wasn't enjoying ...

10 lessons I learned in Hawaii and wish for you, too.

A little over four years ago, I was blessed to spend four months at a reforestation sanctuary in the mountains of Hawaii called Ahu Lani. Ahu Lani roughly translates to heavenly shrine. This was a time of so much growth and change for me. I was 26 years old, freshly out of grad school and in need of "figuring out" my life. Really, I needed to feel my hands in the dirt and ...

Music heals everything. I am a true believer in this. It heals the mind, the heart, the stress, the pain...everything. Growing up music played a big role in my life. At the age of 5 I started playing the violin, and played as one of the top violinists in orchestras until I was finished college. I've also dabbled in guitar, drums, piano and even harp. But above all, I love to sing and ...
