Flipping the Birdie to Self-Loathing

There I was, halfway through a 90-minute hot yoga class, panting like a (downward) dog, cursing my (aunt) flow, while practicing my Vinyasa Flow, and sweating my (figurative) balls off. For some odd reason, the teacher decided to worship birds today. We chirped and pecked our way through pigeons,  eagles and swans. We performed variations […]

In a room full of darkness, all I saw was light.

  I’m scared. Not the kind of scared where you check the closet twice for monsters and make a flying leap onto your bed so the girl from The Sixth Sense does not reach out from underneath to grab your legs. Not the kind of scared you feel on the drive to your boyfriend’s house […]

Letters to me;

  I wish I could write a letter to my 10-year-old self. Gangly, awkward, innocent. I wish I could tell myself to spend my weekends sleeping on the trampoline instead of worrying so much about bugs and monsters and bad guys. I wish I could go back to elementary school days and parachutes in PE […]

Wake up & CHASE YOUR DREAMS

Over the past little while, I’ve had a chance to get to know myself pretty darn well. In August, I moved to a new state, started a program at a new school, and made a whole new set of friends. I was forced to get out of the comfort zone that I had grown to […]

What Nike meant to say was “Just DON’T do it.” (sometimes)…

The past few months have taught me a very valuable lesson. A lesson that I am still working on mastering fully, but a lesson that I wanted to share with you nonetheless. This lesson has been in patience. As Americans, we learn day-in and day-out that we are living in a fast paced world and […]

[UN]realistic expectations

I have a rant that has been brewing for some time now. And I know that I am certainly not the only one who has these thoughts and feelings, but I am not bound into any sort of contract or agreement that would limit my expression of these feelings  (ps. any sponsorship inquiries or publicity […]
