How Newly Widowed Woman Found Self-Love and Adventure Again

My husband of 16 years passed away in a tragic boating accident in 2018 while alone on our boat in the British Virgin Islands. He left for the trip on December 19th and intended to return on the 24th for Christmas Eve. He passed away on December 20th, the morning after he arrived. He was the love of my life. We had known each other for about 30 years and it was always our plan to have a sailboat. I'm lucky we got to realize that dream. In 2000 we took sailing lessons and in 2002 we got married and...

Rings to Buy Yourself: Why More Women Are Buying Jewelry for Themselves

It should come as no surprise that in recent years the jewelry market has seen a boom in women buying jewelry for themselves. Women today want pieces that embody their intrinsic value, passion, and success. And most importantly, women are no longer looking to men to buy for them—blossoming a once-gift-heavy market into one that is fueled by self-love. Instead of waiting to be chosen—women are choosing themselves. Enter the anti-engagement ring as a case in point. The Self Love Pinky Ring was created by Fred and Far for women more intent on discovering themselves than pining after Prince Charming. The beauty of...

The One Who Improved Her Whole Life by Loving Herself

I spent the majority of my life trying to keep people happy...everyone but myself.Last year, I realized that I was always the giver in my friendships and most of my relationships. And I finally decided to honor myself—to choose myself—by eliminating those one-sided relationships from my life. It was difficult, it was lonely at times, but it was imperative for my physical, emotional, and mental health. The day I decided to choose myself, my entire life changed. My outlook on life and even my performance at work and in school improved. My relationships with the people who TRULY cared about me...

The One Who Found Strength for Her Children Through Strengthening Herself

This past January, I was 5 months pregnant with my twin girls, working from home full time and also raising my (then) 2 year old son. Then the unthinkable happened: I was laid off from my job. Suddenly, we were left with only my husband's income for our rapidly growing family. Just a few weeks later, right before I was set to give birth to our twins, COVID shut everything down. And, in the midst of all that craziness, our twins were born a month early. They spent that month in NICU. So for a month, I drove an hour there...

What are you brave enough to say no to?

For a long time, I prided myself in my desire to say yes. In fact, in 2014, I wrote a blog post about challenging myself to say yes to practically anything in the effort to ignite my imagination and broaden my life experience. I even invited my readers to join me in 100 days of yes, with all of us documenting our yes moments on social media. And for a time, saying yes worked. It opened many, many doors. And I prided myself on walking through all of them. I wrote a novel in 2010. I started my first business, Write...
