yes, I’m talking about caring for yourself first because you can’t save anyone else if you’re drowning. Facts. So if you’re not open to self-care, then you might want to skip this article because it’s all about how to create a self-care routine using what I see as the six foundations of self-care.Read More
It seems that nobody talks about the identity crisis some of us go through after marriage and babies. I felt invisible. I felt like I was drowning. I had unhealed wounds that caused me to shrink back into silence because it was more comfortable than speaking up for myself...until it wasn’t anymore. I got to the point where I wished I would disappear.Read More
when I learned about palo santo over a year ago I read that it is harvested from naturally dead trees or limbs making this a sustainable alternative to white sage. To have the greatest effect, sticks should be made from trees that have been dead at least 4-10 years.
Now fast forward to a year+ later I’ve been seeing posts sharing concerns over people using palo santo--Read More
Connecting with nature was super easy when we lived in the country—we had forty acres, so I just walked outside and was basically surrounded with it. Now we live in the suburbs, and while this isn’t new for me, connecting with nature takes a more conscious effort. So here are six simple ways you can connect with some nature today:Read More
In all of the books I’ve read on the law of attraction there is the same idea that ‘your life is what you consciously create.’
And it’s been a really hard thing for me to wrap my brain around. What about all of the people in poverty? Or all of the wars, starvation, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, etc. Did those people consciously create that?Read More
They say you can never have too many books…or I think that’s what people used to say. Maybe. Not really sure. But I'm going to pretend like it’s a for sure saying because then I don’t have to admit that I might have too many books.Read More
“I’m not good enough”—it’s the root of all our toxic thoughts.
I started reading “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay the other day, though I’ve had it for almost 8 months. I guess I wasn’t ready to read it. The idea is that our thoughts create our reality, including disease in the body, with resentment, criticism, and guilt causing the most damage.Read More
I’m going through some major life shifts lately…a lot of healing, so I’m saying goodbye to toxic people. Not because “toxic” is a trending word lately, but because some people are actually toxic and harm your health. Like it’s literally a thing and can create more stress, weight gain, thyroid issues, and more…but it’s also important to note that “toxic” is not the same as “annoying” or “frustrating.”Read More
You are not a reflection of those who can’t love you.
Let me say it again: YOU ARE NOT A REFLECTION OF THOSE WHO CAN’T LOVE YOU. Someone on the internet said it–I couldn’t find the source
You are not what people say about you.
You are not what people think about you.
And you are worthy of love.
It’s okay to set boundaries with people and to set boundaries with yourself.
I used to hike alone all the time when I lived in Utah… I always told people where I was going, when they should expect me home, always went to highly trafficked trails, listened to my intuition, and never went close to dark. Then people kept telling me it wasn’t safe (mostly because of creeps that I haven’t encountered yet) and so I started hiking only if I had a buddy. But the thing is, I was never afraid hiking alone;Read More
