I bet you’ve probably heard something along the lines of “you shouldn’t use medication for anxiety or depression” at some point in your life. There’s such a stigma behind all things related to mental illness, but particularly when it comes to medication. Why is that, do you think? I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of hearing stuff like that, because medication to treat mental illness can literally save someone’s life.

Before you start thinking that I’m pushing medication on people,

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are all going to take some time today to hang out with friends and drink a well deserved spritz (just maybe sans flag print apparel and plz keep your pups inside – psa over). Okay, so I’ve been off the radar for a little while. A long while. I missed you guys! I didn’t mean to disappear for such a long time, but the last few months were a big learning experience and I’m excited to share everything with you.

Toxic relationships. We’ve all been there at one point or another. The lies, the cheating, the manipulation – unfortunately these are all things we’re all far too familiar with. But are you aware of the subtle signs that you or someone you know are in the middle of a toxic relationship? Here’s what you need to know and what you can do about it.

If you’re interested in hearing about my personal experiences being in a toxic relationship when I was younger,

Forgiveness. We’ve all heard the word before, but do we truly understand the meaning of it? Do we really know how to forgive in a way that’s healthy for us? What are we supposed to do when someone has hurt us in a way that feels unforgivable and won’t apologize? How do we navigate the difficult times when forgiveness seems completely out of the question. And finally, do we truly understand the impact that choosing not to forgive can have on our own well-being?

I’ve never been someone who particularly enjoys exercising in and of itself. Sure, I’ve found activities that I’ve enjoyed that just so happen to also provide exercise (I’ve always loved dancing, for instance), but I’m definitely not some sort of fitness guru by any means! My journey with fitness has been a struggle, particularly in the last year or so. I’ve struggled to stay consistent with anything I was doing, which resulted in not getting desirable results.

Life in your twenties and thirties can be confusing. One minute you’re on top of the world, and the next it can feel like pretty much everything is crashing down. I always thought a quarter life crisis was something you had once, like when a middle aged single dad goes through a mid-life crisis and buys a yellow Porsche and takes up tennis and maybe also joins Tinder. Turns out though, the quarter life crisis can strike any time,

If you’re ready to give up, that means you’ve already taken a very important step – you’ve made the leap, taken a risk, done something big! To feel like giving up means you have to have started something already, which is HUGE. It’s also the most important thing to remember when you get to a point that makes you feel like throwing in the towel; at some point in time you wanted to do this,

Where you should be at each stage of your life

Do you remember being like 12 years old and planning out your life timeline? Like – where should you be at 25? Where should you be at 30?

Mine waffled between get married at 22, kids at 25, become an Olympic horseback rider at 28, have a million dollars by 30 AND famous actor by 20, retire and producer award winning documentary films by 28, date a younger male model by 30.

Ah, success. What the hell is it anyway?

We are basically preparing for success from birth. We’re always prepping and practicing to get to some place; some place that we’re told is a good place to be. Sure, some of those things are probably necessities (losing your diaper dependency comes to mind), but it seems to me like the path of success has become awful straight and narrow.

Learn to walk.
