Life can can get hard. In the depths of the pain, there is opportunity for growth. It can be a lonely place to be in. This is a space to show up in authenticity about real life, mental health, growth and all else that comes with the human experience. For me, connection and feeling understood has been a cornerstone. Community and connection are like a life vest in rough waters; it’ll carry you though.
Today I found a reflection that I had written years ago about how I have grown through my recovery. Today as a recovered person, I am proud of both the young girl version of myself who struggles and chose to get help and the version who was able to hold the space for both griefContinue reading “Change Is The Only Thing That Will Not Change”

We live in a society that instills fear and judgement in being vulnerable, about expressing our emotions, and about being human. Recently, I have been told that my gift in this world is myContinue reading “Hello World”
There is so much pressure this time of year to feel merry and joyful. The thing is that the month, the day, or the time cannot vanish everything else that has been going on in life.
