Word of the Week: Expansion Life Lesson: For the last 10 years, I’ve directed all my attention towards healing myself, talking about healing myself, reading about healing myself, helping others heal themselves, creating spaces where we can heal together.

Update: Monday Vibes Dyes Her Hair Pink

Word of the Week: Self-Expression Life Lesson: I’ve been dealing with some censoring these last few weeks and it’s not only destroyed my creative process, but negatively impacted my mental health. Writing is an act of self-expression. Writing is healing. Writing is art. Art is not meant to be tied with a pretty bow. Art […]

Why Society is Afraid of Unapologetic Women

Word of the Week: Gratitude Life Lesson: Gratitude and pain can co-exist. In fact, research shows the most resilient people are able to hold both emotions at once, recognizing the human experience is vast and validating the entirety of our emotional experience is important.

Get To Know Your Community: Safia Tapal

Word of the Week: Happy Life Lesson: “How are you feeling about everything? Any fears coming up?” my therapist asked a week before Andrew (my hubs) and I moved out of NYC.

Are You Addicted to Struggle?

Word of the Week: Adaptable Life Lesson: If there’s one thing this pandemic has taught me, it’s to stop making plans. There’s a part of me that was really stressed by this at first, but if I’m being honest with myself, there’s another part of me that was relieved. There’s a strange sense of relief, […]

How to Loosen Your Grip on Life and Practice Adaptability

Word of the Week: Change Life Lesson: I’ve recently changed my relationship with quitting. What does it even mean to quit something, really? Let me explain. The hard-working, overachiever I’ve always been taught to be—praised to be—prided herself on never being a quitter. If I couldn’t figure something out or something didn’t come naturally, it […]
