5 Ways To Stop Hating Your Body

Weight issues… such a big topic and one so intertwined with loving your body and loving yourself. I’ve been on both sides of it, loving and hating my body… feeling like I’m too fat or not fat enough. (Read my body story) Struggling to separate who I am from the number on the scale or what people think of me. The thing that always annoys me is the pictures that start out “Real women… (have curves/ aren’t a size zero/ ect)” or “Real Men… (want a woman with curves, don’t like bones)” to which I say “We can do better.”…

Saying No: An Act of Self-Love

One of the foundations of self-love: Boundaries. Your ability to say “no” to people is often an indicator of how well you’re loving yourself. If you are constantly saying yes to people and situations that you want to say “no” to you end up being exhausted, burnt out, and with little time for yourself and for self-care. When I first created my Self-Love Planner (years ago!) one of the things I noticed right away was how much time I spent doing things that I didn’t want to do. At that time of my life, I was still an introvert in…

Why We Can’t Let Go of Bad Relationships

Last week, one of our lovely members of our Self-Care/Self-Love/Mental Health Group – The SoulSisterhood, made a post that made me feel some things and I wanted to write about those feelings. She’s in a great relationship, she’s happy, she’s treated well, yet she can’t stop thinking about her ex-boyfriend who she had a very up and down and somewhat toxic relationship with and she thinks he might be her soulmate, which causes her to have doubts about her current relationship. Giiiiiirl. Who hasn’t been there? If you haven’t, count yourself lucky. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in…

March Self-Care Planning!

We’re on the cusp of a new month so it’s time to pull out your Self-Love Workbook (or your March Self-Care pages!) and start planning! I promised myself at the beginning of this year that I was going to hardcore focus on my spirituality. I’ve felt so spiritually depleted for a long time and I want to be filled up with that magic again. I cleaned and re-arranged my altar. I’ve started keeping track of the moon phases. I even started a Facebook group so that I’d have extra accountability. February was a gigantic failure. Don’t ever let anyone tell…

How to Deal With the Death of a Loved One

Have you been a reader for a while? Then you might know that I just came upon the one-year anniversary of my mother’s death. It never really gets easier. I think I’ve learned that the first year is the hardest. It’s getting through all of those initial hurdles. The first birthday, mother’s day, holiday season… that punched-in-the-gut feeling hits you on those days. I think the second time around might be easier. Just a bit. Losing someone you love is painful. Often it’s so painful that you can feel it physically. No one ever really tells you about that –…

Anxiety & Self Care

Morning you beautiful people! Today I present to you a guest post by the talented Josephine from Crazy Whole Life. Five years ago I would have laughed at the idea that I would be diagnosed with anxiety. A huge part of my identity was that I was someone who didn’t stress. I was the peacemaker in our family, the responsible oldest child, and the calm eye of every hurricane. So when I started having anxiety symptoms I assumed I was having a heart attack (one that went on for days, weeks, and then months). I went so far as to…

Self-Care Memes for February 2019

For the longest time, I’ve been really intimidated by Instagram. There’s just so much prettiness! At the same time, I’ve also been really frustrated with my Facebook Page. Facebook algorithms make it so hard for posts to be seen unless you pay money to “boost” them. I have over 20,000 fans on my Facebook page and I’m lucky if I get 50 likes on a post. It’s so discouraging! I decided to try my hand at Instagram and it has paid off big time. In just a few months I went from 5,000 followers to almost 20,000, insert cheering! I’ve…

Intrusive Thoughts and Obsessive Thought Loops

What’s an intrusive thought? An intrusive thought is an unwelcome involuntary thought, image, or unpleasant idea that may become an obsession, is upsetting or distressing, and can feel difficult to manage or eliminate.* We all have intrusive thoughts, although it’s something we don’t talk about because of embarrassment, shame, and well, guilt. They range from things like wanting to break everything when you’re walking by the dishes at Target, thinking you have a deadly disease because your stomach hurts, or replaying an event in your head over and over again. There are darker intrusive thoughts too. Thoughts like hurting the people you care…

Self-Care Battery: Recharge Yours!

In the Self-Love Workbook, I talk a lot about self-care and recharging. But how do you know what and how to recharge? Let’s have a little chat about your self-care battery. Have you ever heard of the “Spoon Theory“? It’s a way to describe how people with chronic illness have a limited amount of energy. Every day they are allotted a certain number of “spoons”. Every activity costs a certain number of spoons. Getting out of bed may be two spoons, cooking breakfast is one, showering is two, doing chores is three, while going to work is four, and going out…

The Law of Attraction

Chances are that you’ve heard a lot about “the law of attraction”. I know I have, especially in many of the online circles I’m in.

Well, let’s take a moment to run through the basics! What Is the Law of Attraction? Let’s start out with a brief summary. The law of attraction is a belief that the universe provides you with whatever your thoughts are focused on. Accordingly, if…

The Secret to Fixing Other People

The secret to fixing other people is that you can’t. You probably already knew that. It doesn’t stop you from wanting to fix people. To see what they’re doing wrong, to swoop in and save them from themselves. Raise your hand if you’ve wished with your whole heart that you could take away someone else’s pain. It’s so hard to watch them struggle, especially if you’re empathic like I am. Their pain affects you almost as if it were your own and you hurt for them. A long time ago I had a friend that struggled with drug use. She…

The MoonSisterhood: Online Witch Group

I’ve been practicing an earth-based spiritual path for nearly 18 years now (Gods that makes me feel old). I started out as a little baby Pagan reading Scott Cunningham books and practicing magic outside in the dead of night when my mom was asleep. The thing I remember most about that time, silly as it is, is the apple cinnamon scented candle I used for all of my spellwork. To this day, that smell brings me back. Over the last few years I’ve grown detached from my path, wandered out into the middle of nowhere and I’ve completely lost my…
