Do you like who you are?

  This isn’t a question many people consider very often but it’s an important one. Do you like who you are in general?

Love + Loss

    I saw this beautiful piece yesterday on a friends page + she was happy for me to share this, thank you Kelly 🫶🏻   ❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹   Sometimes people walk away from love because it is so beautiful that it terrifies them. 😳    Sometimes they leave because the connection shines a bright light on their dark places and they are not ready to work them through. 🫥   Sometimes they run away because they are not developmentally prepared…

Let’s talk about shame

    I was listening to a podcast about domestic abuse yesterday.    The woman being interviewed works in the field with survivors + training professionals.   She was sharing her experience of her own abusive relationship + the shame she felt being in one while also working in the field, as well as how it changed her work.   It brought up so many parallels for me that I wanted to share.    I never share this stuff from…
