The Art of Finding My Voice:
Self-expression is one of the most important things we do as humans. Using our voice is our human birthright and allows us to speak our truth, connect with others, to ask questions, understand the world better and also to let go of things that don’t serve us anymore. We can use our voice to create joy in the world or we can use it to cause pain. Even our internal voice, can cause both. Our bodies know on a cellular level the messages we feed them, making it a constant practice to learn how to be in good relationship with ourselves as much as others. Our voice is one of the most powerful tools we possess and it is up to us how we use it.
I choose to share my stories because I truly believe that through storytelling and sharing, this is how we connect with others and how we know that we are not alone in how we are feeling, the things we think and in what we are going through. Shame cannot exist when light is brought to it. It is only through isolation and feeling alone that shame can fester.
I write about all sorts of things in my life, but mostly relationships with myself and others. I am committed to lifelong learning about how we as humans interact with ourselves, each other and the world around us.
The biggest commitment each of us can make to each other and to ourselves is to align our actions with our words, knowing that actions always speak louder than words. Also to take care of ourselves as lovingly as we take care of others. It is when we are in a good place within ourselves that all the goodness and beauty ripples out to the world around us.

Throughout my life I was never really into health and wellness. And never thought I’d be on this journey. In fact, just 9 years ago, if you asked me, I’d never have thought I’d be where I am today. I choose to share my story
I didn’t write as much during the last 9 days of my project. I was feeling processed to the max having sifted and sorted through so many emotions throughout the several weeks prior. I focused more on reflecting about general things in life like my
6-7-18 Day 21 Why do I do this work? It doesn’t come easy or feel lighthearted. It feels restricting when I thought it would feel awakening and life-giving. It’s like I’m grieving for the way I’ve always known relationships to be which hasn’t well for
After realizing I was possibly emotionally unavailable, I needed to do some more research which involved digging into what this meant and how to change my own patterns. So, I went to the best blog I could think of, The Baggage Reclaim. Natalie Lue is
This has been quite the year! I spent 5 weeks in Bali for Yoga Teacher Training in February, came home for 6 weeks then took a vacation to Mexico. I have also transitioned to being a full-time personal trainer/fitness instructor/health coach/jeweler. It has been a
Through the last 4 years I have been journaling like crazy! Trying to dig deep looking to make sense of life and what I need and want going forward. I think this commonly happens for people who go through a major loss or a major
