Proof You Aren't the Only One Who is Sick of Hustle Culture This blog post started out as a journal entry. Usually in times of confusion and frustration I turn to my journal in order to explore my feelings in a productive way that brings me peace and clarity. I decided to share my thoughts on hustle culture on my public blog with the hope that other people who are experiencing something similar see that they aren't alone. I also want to inspire my readers to embrace a more authentic and heartbased approach to balancing work and life. Here it goes: I’m feeling anxious after scheduling my social media posts for the week. Why? Because it was “too easy.” Yup....

When You Feel Hopeless On Your Healing Journey, Read This This blog post is completely different than any post I’ve ever published here. There’s no advice, journal prompts, or “how to’s” in it.

I’m at peace now. I’m free.  This blog post...

Ask An Empowerment Coach: How Can I Set Boundaries, Find Peace, and Live Authentically Without Hurting People's Feelings? (Journal prompts included!) My clients are ambitious and loving women who come to me because they're  sick and tired of shrinking around their needs and getting the short end of the stick in their relationships.

I love answering it because my response helps my clients shift from feeling powerless and ashamed of their needs...

Real Talk: Am I The Only One Working Through Trust Issues While Recovering from Trauma? I have trust issues.  When I say that, my inner voice automatically goes, “Duuuhh!! Look at the hell you’ve been through!” That reaction is what self-compassion sounds like it my head. I've been recovering from trauma for a few years now. I’m a survivor (not a victim) of narcissistic abuse, childhood neglect, sexual assault, and betrayal (including self betrayal.) So, it makes complete sense that I would have a hard time trusting. But the problem with that is it prevents me, an advocate for mindfulness and all things YOLO, from experiencing my relationships to the fullest. I rarely give anyone a chance to “be there” for...
