The One Who Started Expressing Herself

  "I bought my ring a few months ago when I was having a hard time at work. Blue topaz is not only my birth stone but it is also linked to your ability to express yourself, which is what I really needed to do. I wear it every single day and I can’t tell you how much that reminder gets me through whatever I need to do. It’s such a simple thing, the ring, and yet it serves such an enormous purpose. Thank you so so so much!" - Maritza   Connect with Maritza on Instagram @maritzamelania.

What Keeping A List Taught Me About My Joy

Be joyful, we proclaim to each other. But the truth is – if you’re anything like me – knowing what brings you joy gets harder and harder to pin down the older and busier you get. When I was a teenager and later in my twenties, my joy was always within arm’s reach: my besties, my favorite CD and headphones, weekend getaways to Palm Springs to get a tan. Joy was attainable because I knew my joy, intimately.  As I grew up, my responsibilities mounted, and with that, my joy slowly dissipated. The more I worked, the more I achieved,...

The One Who Put Herself First

"After years of putting myself down due to trauma that occurred in childhood and quite a catastrophic life event, my AHA! moment came was when I was forced to leave the comfort of my apartment temporarily to come back home to the very place where my childhood trauma had began. I began to realize that I needed to begin to put myself first and start therapy, and to truly take care of myself so that upon my return home I could take care of my son and husband. To be present. To be grateful, but to always know that no...

The One Who Created Boundaries

" #theabcsofselflove challenge Day 2️⃣ Boundaries. This is such a big one for me - it’s actually how I started doing the @fredandfar challenges. Boundaries are awesome. It’s better to say no and honor your feelings than “suck It up” to do what everyone else wants and be miserable. Yesterday I had a horrible headache and decided to stay off my phone for most of the day (also why I’m posting this a day late). A silly boundary - but It made a big impact. These little boundaries set you up to define your bigger boundaries.I am a recovering people...

Self care isn't selfish. We know this. And yet - when we make time to care for ourselves, we feel, well, guilty. It's time to let science settle this debate once and for all: is it good for us to practice Self Care Sunday, or are we simply giving ourselves an excuse to be selfish? The Definition of Self Care Before we dive into the science behind self care, it's important to know what self care is.  According to the UK Department of Health:  “Self care is a part of daily living. It is the care taken by individuals towards their...

THE ONE WHO SURRENDERED

"I tried to give her everything she wanted. And damn. Did she want it all. She wrote it down. She spoke it out loud. She even announced to the congregation at church that graduation Sunday exactly what her plans were. The career. New York City. Of course she left a few things out though. Like falling in love by 23. Married by 25. Kids by 27. Her religion was agendas and she worshipped the details. She had absolutely everything mapped out. What she wanted. When she wanted it. And how she was going to get it. She was 18 with...
