I’m 33 (a month ago). I have bacne that goes away (and stays away) with regular back scrubber usage in the shower, but I can’t bring myself to wash my goddamn back every time I bathe. It’s just annoying. I usually yell from the shower for Kris and make him do it.Read More
We've been duped into thinking that if we are good people who are pure of heart, if we're in service to others, if we're following our passion that literally "the rest" will follow. That's extremely misleading, often quite dangerous and most of the time sets us all up for failure and burnout.Read More
When you're in that stressful situations often, and your cortisol and adrenaline are firing for prolonged periods of time - it changes how your brain is wired. You no longer have the ability to properly regulate your hormones and this throws your health out of balance affecting everything from inflammation to thyroid issues to sleep patterns and more.Read More
Even the pseudo deep and evolved people - they are just quick to shut you up and remind you to be grateful.Read More
It's funny though how the gratitude for where you're at only lasts for so long. Because six months later when you're still in the same place, it's really fucking hard to remind yourself to be grateful for it yet another day.Read More
So they aren't scared of "the psychic". They are scared of being faced with themselves. They are scared because a psychic is generally someone you can't bullshit or make excuses with. They're detached from your situation, operating on a different plane, and are just there to tell you what the fuck is up, if you ask them.Read More
The thought of - what if I hadn't come back? Reminds me of the feeling you might have when someone dies unexpectedly and you had so much you meant to say.

I spent the next day tearing apart the book and having a true fucking awakening. I was amazed that women's bodies could do all of this incredible shit, I was in awe of my own body for the process of menstruation and the ability to grow and birth a human. I sat naked on my back porch and poured water all over myself in a primal moment of pure ecstasy at simply being a woman.Read More
Now I was in a strangers house, googling divorce, making an appointment for an abortion, trying to find a place to live, and figuring out how long the money I had was going to last me (I had quit my job in prep to move to D.C.)Read More
I had a revelation when I applied the basic principles of attachment parenting to adult intimate relationships. MIND BLOWN. And now, I'll share it with you.Read More
You could train or learn or shadow or prep or practice or plan, but when the shit goes down it's basically never going to be how you think it's going to be. So just go for it. Figure it out as you go. Commit to always learning, growing, and changing. Do your best.Read More
Who'da thought my writing prompt today would've turned into a love letter about Joseph Gordon Levitt.Read More
I don't believe in God in the traditional sense. I am way more into me and the energy I radiate. What makes sense to me is that we're all energy all the time. And we all vibrate at different frequencies and those frequencies attract similar frequencies. So it makes sense that if I'm gossiping or being negative or feeling sorry for myself that I'm radiating at a lower frequencyRead More
Usually my wishes are intertwined with expressing gratitude for all of the amazing things that already are. Though sometimes it's a yell! Like - hey! I'm ready for a fucking life upgrade.
I'M READY.Read More
I didn't make pro/con lists, I didn't agonize over the what-ifs. I didn't have a certain amount of money saved as safety net first. Because it wasn't a question. Staying at my corporate job wasn't an option. The only way to go was forward.Read More
Then I got out of that salt water float tank, I got dressed, grabbed my bag of shit and prayed to Jesus that I would make it down the hall to the actual bathroom with my clear plastic bag of poop without running into anyone.Read More
I think that the whole concept of the American Dream is complete horse shit. Go to college, get married, have a family, work really really hard and then retire and enjoy your golden years. I mean - none of that works for me, but especially the concept of having to work hard.Read More
I was unkempt eating peanut butter out of the jar watching Sex and the City. And you know - all of those other things you do when you're alone. I just wanted a body to sleep in the guest room.Read More
I always abstractly knew she was on medication for depression, but I didn't really know what that meant. Of course I have all sorts of hind sight now that I am an "adult". My mom and my grandma had a strange relationship and were always at odds about something.Read More
