Showing Up

Most recently I had a conversation with a friend and she said, “I’m taking a risk…” and I responded, “No you are showing up to your life.” In that moment, ...

Standing In Your Power

If there is one thing I’ve learned in 2013, it is that there is something so beautiful when you stand in your power. Let me be clear-this is not me encouraging you to be aggressive. I think aggression is actually weakness because when one is aggressive they are operating out of fear. Standing in your […]

Start With Gratitude

  I am forever and always in a state of gratitude. I can’t imagine life without the little moments when I say to myself, “Wow, I am so blessed.” I don’t think gratitude should only be recognized on a holiday. I believe we all should incorporate moments where look and honor how beautiful our lives […]

100% Self-Approved

And…..I’m BACK! Did you miss me? I am a miracle-lovin’ lady who drinks bunches of kale and can’t help herself when it comes to raw chocolate macaroons, but I also struggle with validating my emotions end experiences. I was texting with my best friend and I told her “I wish I was more grounded.” All […]

Happy Healthy Body

I felt like I had to throw some body awareness love out into the world today. We put our bodies through a lot of sh*t. A LOT OF SH*T. And you know what, our bodies do not deserve that. We honestly take our bodies for granted, when they are responsible for keeping us alive. That’s […]

My Funny Life

Today I had to coach myself to put pants on. “Go to your dresser. Open the middle drawer. Pick pants other than sweatpants. And repeat with a clean shirt.” This is a typical conversation I will have with myself after suffering from a panic attack the previous night. Panic attacks leave me in an aftermath […]

Life is so beautiful. I know that I often forgot this. I will focus on all the anxiety I feel and just try to get through the day, instead of actually enjoying the day. When we are going through something, we just want to get through it. I encourage you to feel it. It will […]

I Choose To Fight For Who I Am & What I Deserve

4 severe panic attacks in 48 hours…now that’s setting a record my friends! I always regard my anxiety as a ‘blessing’ because I do feel gratitude for the disorder I have to live with each and every day. There’s not one day that I am not giving it my all to be my best self […]

Showing Up In Boulder

There’s one way to show up to your life: it’s to follow your heart. This past few weeks have been a true test of following my heart even when I feel raw, scared, and unfaithful. I was accepted to Watson University in May, a program that is redefining higher education and shaping the world’s upcoming […]

The Blessings of a Weakness

I purposely choose to say, “I am blessed to have multiple anxiety disorders.” I honestly feel gratitude for growing up with severe panic attacks. I understand this seems strange-how could one feel so much love for something that caused so much pain? In society, we normally categorize a weakness as being “bad”.  But how could […]

The (Almost) Makeup Disaster of 2013

Let me just start by saying, “Thank goodness for ASSET, or in public I’d look like an absolute crazy lady!” This past weekend I ventured to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the first ever Under 20 Retreat by the Thiel Foundation (which was an amazing experience!). Of course, this was my first time traveling on a plane […]
