When we think of health and wellness we often think of eating right, staying active and practicing positive habits that will help us grow into the people we want to be. But something that is so often missed within the conversation of health, wellness and healing is actually talking about the hard stuff and getting support for the shit that keeps us up at night. Everyone's life is one big anonymous journal where pieces of ourselves stay hidden because of the mental health stigma. This podcast is dedicated to opening up those journals and letting people have a safe place to tell their stories.
Leaning into your Purpose
To be completely transparent I have zero remembrance of what I rambled about in this episode. What I do know is that I finally spill the beans on becoming honest about my wants and desires in life, especially in my career. And what that means for website design. Listen up because (I believe) it gets a lil' spicy!
Thoughts I've been having lately
I feel like I've been in a thinking mood lately. I've been trying to take myself off social media a bit more so I can be in the present and since then I've had quite a few thoughts about life. So join me in this episode as I'd love to see what your thoughts and opinions are on these topics as well.
We Back Baby (Where the frick I've been)
Did you miss me?! No seriously, I even missed me. Because ya girl has been going on a RIDE, mentally, the last 4+ weeks. I felt like I was legit drowning in my thoughts but I can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. So if you've been curious (which I know you have been), grab a drink (cause you'll need it) and take a listen into this 24 minute episode.
Questions for when I'm Anxious
Over the past few years I've gotten really good at identifying my triggers: Feeling anxious in relationships, Financials, Imposter Syndrome and being in a sensory over-loaded environment. I decided to write out four questions I can come back to when I start to feel myself going into fight or flight mode with my goal being to ground myself.
I wanted to share these questions in hope they inspire you to write your own to come back to when you start feeling anxious, frustrated, angry, depressed, etc. Or if you want, take mine!

I Stopped Going to Therapy
I believe therapy is a gift everybody can give themselves. We all deal with a level of childhood trauma that ultimately affects how we presently think, feel and handle emotions during specific situations and triggers. When I started going to therapy two years ago I was struggling with anxiety daily/every other day, severe mood swings and disassociation that would take me out for the day. Because of talk therapy, I can confidently intellectualize my triggers, thoughts and choices which feels super empowering. The only problem? My inability to feel deep emotion which talk therapy wasn't able to help me with, which I explain more in the episode. So sit back, relax and join me as I go into detail about the next steps in my mental health journey..
