For most of us, working from home, being an improv…

I Don’t Know How to Feel

I sat down at my computer yesterday, trying to formulate some words about how I feel. There’s so much criticism in a person’s silence about the current issues were facing; the murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others that have suffered the horrific an unjustified and untimely death. But, I want…

WTIO Bucket List

It’s happening. I’m going crazy in quarantine. Although things are starting to open up in phases, I can’t help but realize that a full opening of the world and the ability to do the things you once loved to do without worry may be far-fetched right now. Now that I’ve had all this spare time,…

A Journey Through Self.

Letting Go and Letting the Universe Handle it

How many times do we hold on to the stress and weight of others’ burdens? Why are the individuals labeled “strong” not allowed to be human? Sometimes, letting go is a means of survival. It is a stress reliever, it diminishes levels of anxiety, etc. The simple art of letting situations go and allowing them…

Compassion, the Underworked Muscle

As I was reading my current book, Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection, I came across a quote that held a wealth lot of meaning to me and decided felt compelled to talk about it, because it speaks so much necessary truth to those who suffer with self-compassion. The book has a section that…

Remember to Breathe

Let’s get real for a moment. I don’t believe that mental health is something that is discussed to the fullest degree. There are so many misconceptions and assumptions about depression, how to deal with it, who should and shouldn’t be faced with depression, etc.; the fact of the matter is, anyone can be riddled with…
