Entering my 20s was a confusing time. I was trying to find my place as a young woman. Midway through my 20s, I hit a rut. I wasn’t in the best headspace. I was working a meaningless job, barely making ends meet, and feeling stuck. Not to mention the weight of heartbreak on my shoulders.Continue reading “The Student becomes the Teacher”

Puzzle Therapy for the Anxious

When I feel overwhelmed I tend to drop everything. Calls and texts go unanswered, messages get missed, social media gets parked and I go silent. I do that in an attempt to regain structure and grab ahold of life and as a result, I “fall behind.” This past weekend I was sitting on the couchContinue reading “Puzzle Therapy for the Anxious”

Actively Overcoming

Shame. Withdrawn. Suicidal Ideation. Depression. Tears. Fear. Hopelessness. Negative Self Image. Failure. Trapped. Worthless. Withdrawn. Complacent.

You see someone who’s trying to choose daily to transform her thoughts into focusing on the positive (because there are many).Continue reading “Actively Overcoming”

Stop! Natural Hair Is Not Unprofessional

It upsets me that people don’t understand how much hair is a part of our identity. Growing up I knew that we had to get our hair permed or hot combed to get it as straight as possible to match the beauty standard. Apparently, with our hair straightened it was manageable and neat. Over timeContinue reading “Stop! Natural Hair Is Not Unprofessional”

Reassurance for the High-Achiever

This is for the high-achiever who feels like time has run out. The one who can receive so many stares and yet still feel unseen. The one who has their accomplishments displayed throughout their home and pass them by daily without recognition. It’s the time of year when high- achievers suffer the most. Failing toContinue reading “Reassurance for the High-Achiever”
