Stepping Into The Light - How To Own Your Story

31-Oct-2014

We’ve all been there right? There’s a part of our past that we’re not too thrilled about sharing. There’s that mistake or failure that we’ve experienced that we’re ashamed of, and we beat ourselves up for it.

How To Deal With Anger And Not Burst Into Tears

24-Oct-2014

I was thinking of the word anger and what it really means. Like, what does it mean to really be angry? A common definition relays the feeling to annoyance and displeasure. That seems right, I do feel both of those things while 'angry' but why do we feel that way towards others or situations, why do we care?

Yes, that guy seems great, perfect actually, but there’s no way he’d go out with me.

How To Live Well: My Interview With Petra Nemcova

03-Sep-2014

I was instantly in awe, and yet completely comfortable while sitting down alongside Petra Nemcova. After she kissed me on my cheek three times (I was ready for the first two; I am French I know how this goes, but the third was a complete surprise!) I laughed and we introduced ourselves. I guess I should have picked up on that foreshadowing right there, being an English major and prior AP English teacher. I guess I should have known that Petra and I were going to get along like we had known each other for years. But like that third kiss hello, I was completely surprised! My interview quickly became real girl talk and I loved every second of it! Read on to see how women should celebrate themselves everyday!

Congratulations, You’re Doing It Right!

There’s a common misconception that in life, if things don’t come easy, then it wasn’t meant to be. Maybe you’re feeling discouraged, that your life is a mess and you couldn’t be further from living your dreams. Some people might even be telling you to consider a backup plan or to be more practical. But I say keep going and…congratulations, you’re doing it right.
