A Short Story on Truth-Telling

Few people know this, but in my twenties, I used to manage a customer service team. Well, okay, I can’t lie to you. I – at first – was “the customer service team.” I was also the company copywriter, newsletter maker, Dietitian, and intern manager. Let’s just say, I wore a lot of hats. As this company grew, and their product sold more and more online, the customer service calls and emails increased to hundreds per day. I needed backup. So I began to hire. I found and hired some ...

The Road to Greatness

There was this client I was working with who was moving through anxiety. At first, she had no idea why anxiety was coming to visit. But to tell you the truth, deep down inside she knew. She just didn’t really want to look at it. But then – she got real quiet – and decided to stop listening to her head and start listening to her heart. Once she did this, she saw her anxiety clearly, but this time without fear. It was … Anxiety of the unknown. Anxiety of ...

9 Loving Reminders Every Woman Should Remember When You Don’t Feel Good Enough

Have you ever felt like you’re not enough? Or, that no one in your current circle understands what you’re trying to do? Or, like you just want to throw in the towel, curl up under hundreds of fuzzy blankets, eat popcorn and Reese’s’ pieces, and watch mind-numbing TV, queue (don’t judge me) The Bachelor? Maybe you’re even feeling some of that right now… I know I’ve been in this place …  more than once. And if we’re honest with ourselves, I think we’ve all felt not enough at some point ...

How to Use Your Intuition to Make Decisions

I used to do this thing. I’ve seen many friends do it too. And in all truth, I still can be guilty of it. So I have to catch myself and regroup. What is this thing that I’m so curiously alluding to? It’s asking everyone’s opinion and forgetting yours. Here’s an example: Once, before an evening out, I showed my family and husband two possible outfits. Out of the two outfits, outfit number two was the for-sure winner. But, I personally liked outfit number one best. Yet, I still decided ...

If Social Media is Making You Feel Bad, Please Read This

My husband and I were on the couch the other night watching This is Us. During one of the scenes with all the school-aged kids, “the big three,” my husband looked at me and said, “Is that what you were like with your friends as a kid?” He said it in this cute, playful tone. I paused, smiled, and casually said, “No, I didn’t really have any school friends until I was in the sixth grade.” I didn’t realize how sad that sounded until it came out of my mouth ...

If You Feel Lonely & Want to Make New Friends but Don’t Know Where to Start

Do you ever feel lonely? I do. Especially being someone who works from home. You see – the thing is – I thought it was only me… But the more I started talking about loneliness with girlfriends (or even random people at local coffee shops, on my walks, or at yoga), I soon discovered I wasn’t alone. And when I saw that 72% of adults admitted to feeling lonely … I thought OMG – I’m even more NOT alone in these random creeping feelings of loneliness. Which really got me ...

Not Everyone is Going to Like YOU … & it’s OK

Here’s a not-so-secret secret: OCD runs in my family. And for me – as weird as it sounds – my childhood obsession with whether or not my friends liked me was one sure-fire way to spot it. In middle school, I’d sit cross-legged, alone in my room, and mentally run through my friends, like I was going down a list. For each friend, I’d ask myself, “Are they mad at me? Do they like me?” Repeat, repeat, repeat. Typically, I’d do about three or four exhausting rounds of this… Today, ...
