For a long time after Jess died, I was angry. I guess in some ways, it’s normal to be angry when someone you love dies. It’s unfair for someone so young to die. She had struggled and conquered so much, and had so much life left to live, and then, suddenly, this. A freak accident,…… Continue reading miss you, bee
I laughed when people were telling me “oh have a nice trip to Thailand! That’ll be so relaxing!” Im doing a 200-hour yoga teacher training. Did NOT expect this to be a relaxing vacation by any means. But strangely, I’m feeling more relaxed and at ease than I have in months. Just walking out of…… Continue reading sah wah dee khaa from thailand!

Bubble baths, days at the spa, retreat getaways to a tiny private island….this might be the kind of thing the words “self care” bring to mind. Maybe I’m going a bit overboard with the luxury vacay part, but you get the general idea. It’s all about “treat yo’self” this, and “YOLO – if it makes…… Continue reading hey, take care of yourself, aight?
“New year, new me!” *Pause here while I search (in vain) for an eye-roll emoji* If your Facebook newsfeed is not already plagued with the fitness, diet, self-improvement hype of the new year, prepare yourself. It’s coming. While I’m not necessarily hating on the whole idea of making a resolution to be “healthier”…I kind of…… Continue reading new year, new mindset
