Self-Care Sunday: Sitting in Stillness

After a long and stressful week of working, or even after the day’s events, sometimes I just want to sit in silence. There are days when I will sit in my meditation space, and instead of journaling or doing a guided meditation, I will just sit there and watch the candles as they flicker into…

A Journey Through Self.

I’m thinking of doing a series of blog posts dedicated to a series of things that I am wanting to rediscover about myself: Self-Acceptance Self-love Self-Acknowledgement Self-Esteem All of these things obviously have a common denominator; self. Ive realized throughout the year, my posts have somewhat dealt with a lot of what I’m going through…

How to Forgive Myself

Loving Yourself Gets Hard, and That’s Ok.

Today, I was faced with an emotion that I haven’t felt in a long time;  I wasn’t happy with myself.  I was having a pretty bad day and beating myself up about it.  I hadn’t felt this way in a long time; in fact, I had been in surprisingly great spirits lately about a number…

Why Don’t Superwomen get an Off Day?
