Word of the Week: Release Life Lesson: While packing up our life in NYC, I was surprised how triggered I felt.

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.

Word of the Week: Disillusionment Life Lesson: This past month has been especially dark for me. Some might call it depression. I call it waking up to oppression.

Word of the Week: Space Life Lesson: Tis the season of shadow work, amirite? I’ve been exceptionally grumpy, wallowing in a sea of self-pity, scrolling on Instagram, fuming, thinking people are trying to suck on purpose.

Monday Vibes: What To Do When You Hate Everyone

Word of the Week: Faith Life Lesson: I don’t do well with uncertainty. I much prefer things to be in my control. To plan. Over-plan. Rehearse things in my head. Analyze. Think. Solve. Fix.
