Who said yes?

Who said yes?

  In my life there have been way too many times that I have found myself in a situation wondering how did I get myself here? Some of these situations have been quite devastating over the years and yet, I knew that in the moment I had said yes but then why did I find…

What is your relationship to your body?

How do I write about the bad things that happen? How do I write about sad things and not relive them?  Instead, being able to process them and reflect on them, to take those nuggets of wisdom from the experience and move forward better for having lived through it. I once tried morning pages, the…
