DIVA WTF?

Ok ladies. Let’s get real. Why is there so much stuff we keep from one another!?! Is it because of our insecurities? Perhaps the fear of not belonging? Well I say, take a hike fear! It’s fear that held me back; holds us back from living with authenticity. So I am here to proudly share something. The Diva Cup has changed my life as a woman. (If you’re reading this and you don’t know what the Diva Cup is hang tight.) If you’re reading this and “Ew gross!” pops into your head drop me a line and let me know why! Disclaimer: I am not getting paid to  ...

CLEARING THE SPACE

I recently read Marie Kondo’s book, “the life-changing magic of tidying up.” Not only was it an easy read, it was AWESOME. The NY Times refers to the book as a “liberating manifesto.”  I second that.  In following Marie’s method, I physically and emotionally feel lighter. Having more space and having my house “in order” has allowed for more flow in my life, more time for my family, more time for creativity, and more time to BREATHE. I talked to a friend about how liberated I felt to clear out the clothes that I was hanging onto. Those  ...

SIDE EFFECTS TO LIVING

The inspiration for this post came one day while I was listening to one of my  favorite Pandora stations, Yoga Workout. A commercial for Massage Envy came on …..”Help manage the side effects of life.” Now don’t get me wrong. I absolutely, 110% believe in the mission of taking care of yourself. I believe that regular massage is a form of body maintenance.  But c’mon people!! Side effects of life should include smiles, laughter, and joy; not tension and stress. However in the “never enough” world that we live in today this is all too often where we  ...

I WANT THIS ONE THING…

A Beautiful, BOLD and Juicy life. After I broke down and began to break through, I asked myself, “What do I want?” Initially, I spouted off, “I want to be healthier and happier.” Well who doesn’t?!? It was at this point when the real, good s*** began. The exquisite and juicy work. The breakthrough that led to a transformation. As I continued to explore my truths, and give myself permission to do what I truly wanted the possibilities were endless. Let’s pause for a moment here though and explore this idea of giving yourself permission. It’s easy to  ...

I CHOOSE ME

 I didn’t even see it coming. I was having the best time of my life (or so I thought I was). Hell, it was Christmas in Massachusetts and we were outside in flips flops drinking mimosas. The next thing I know I find myself in a frightfully dark place. I was paralyzed by depression, exhausted from anxiety, and frayed by trauma. My husband had to stay home with me. I could not get out of bed, could not work, nor care for our children. I was scared to be alone. I took a leave of absence from my job and dug deep within my core. I don’t want to live like this, constantly running  ...
