As 2015 is upon us, I've been thinking not so much about what I want to do this upcoming year but about the kind of person I wish to be.
Yet, letting go can also be freeing, and full of new surprises. So what if it gets messy or feels awkward for a bit? Each time you choose to let go, you build up the trust you need in yourself to be better the next time.
Just days before my 21st birthday I discovered that my boyfriend had tried cheating on me for the fourth time that year. I was heartbroken and exhausted from trying to share my love with someone who couldn't stay dedicated to me. Due to a promise I'd made to myself after catching him the third time, I ended it.
Once you see where you're shape-shifting to satisfy your ideas about other peoples' desires, you get the awareness that your reality is made up of choices that you are making, not someone else. The beautiful, liberating news is that you are free to choose again.
Self Discovery - YES! During this holiday season of happiness, comfort and joy, I thought I'd share a discovery that's given me, and those I care mo...
For the most part red carpets are filled with sad, "hangry" stars, full of fillers and botox and empty of nourishment or self confidence. But, if you dig a little deeper you will find that every year there are a few standout women in the spotlight, who are not afraid to breakaway from the B.S. and send a more positive message.

I'm really not sure how it took so long to reference Bob Goff's infamous Love Does book but I couldn't wait a day longer. Earlier today I was skimming through his book and came across some of the notes I made in it a few months back.
Beyond the window, I see the mind and the heart of someone who chooses to listen to herself, her emotions and watches them pass by -- acknowledged but not burdened by them. Who doesn't use food as a quick, cheap fix for those feelings.

The good news is that you can build confidence, both in yourself and in others. Here are five areas you can start working on today to help establish and build your confidence so that it can have a positive flow on effect to every area of your life.
With New Years just around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about what New Year's resolutions we would like to make in the upcoming year.
I came to the conclusion that my life would be much more productive if I could gain the confidence to go out and about my life without having these worries weigh me down. How would I do this? I decided to take a no-makeup pledge.
