Learning to Take Back Ownership of My Body

Learning to Take Back Ownership of My Body

Today, I’m going to be writing mainly to the ladies that are reading this; however, I know that this topic can absolutely apply to men just as equally. So, while the writing will be addressing women from the point of view as a woman myself, I think this could be helpful to anyone who reads it, whether it rings true to your own experience or it just gives you insight into what others have experienced, this is an important message.

After enduring an abusive relationship for over two years along with experiencing a lifetime of men treating me as though all I had to offer was my body, I had come to a point where I believed all the messages about my body and worth were true. It seemed, to me, that society believes that as a woman I owe my body to others. That when men want a piece of me, I must give it without question.

The Universe Wants to Guide Us; We Just Have to Listen

Over the past couple weeks I've been going through one of those phases where I just don't feel inspired to post on social media or write. These happen every once in awhile, and I know I'm not the only one who experiences these phases as I see other people post on social media about their feelings of burnout pretty regularly. 

Normally, when I feel burnout like this my reaction is to fight back with it. "Keep on schedule." "Keep posting every day. You can find something interesting to share." "You have to keep this up if you want followers." It's a never ending battle, one that's pretty exhausting and feels really disconnected. 

But, something changed during this most recent episode of stepping back. Instead of fighting with the lack of desire to share, I started asking myself why I wanted to share in the first place. What was my initial goal anyways, and did that goal need to be met with a constant flood of content?

A Year of Exploration and Healing

A Year of Exploration and Healing

Hello lovelies,

Welcome to a new year, 2018! It's hard to believe another year has passed, and for me, it's hard to believe all that's happened over the course of just 365 days. It's been one whirlwind of a year that's taken me from living and working in Boston, to moving to Iceland where I returned to school, and all the way over to Ireland. There are so many things I have to be grateful for looking back, all the opportunities and growth I've been afforded, and at times I still can't believe where I've ended up.
