Stronger Together Newsletters

Another positive of social distancing… time to create HILARIOUS (and powerful) newsletters. I started because one of my Warriors was having a tough day. The newsletters were well received so I continued as a way to share bite-sized healthy habits. June 17: tribe & consistency (vol 7) June 3: use your voice (vol 6) MayContinue reading “Stronger Together Newsletters”

Giving back & expanding my reach

Getting the juices flowing. I’ve just secured a new gig… I’m going to be a weekly contributor to a very VERY very important non-profit! I’m over the moon excited. It’s going to allow me to stay in the recovery space in a productive way. Rather than blabber on about things happening in my world, IContinue reading “Giving back & expanding my reach”

6 Lessons Learned: Breaking My Silence

Breaking the silence on abuse is not always possible. It can be very dangerous. Depending on the type of abuse and the emotional stability (or lack thereof) of the abuser, it can lead to murder. That said, I have found great comfort in a few truths… Reputation I would rather people think I’m “crazy” andContinue reading “6 Lessons Learned: Breaking My Silence”

Empower Myself through Self Care Practices

As the decade comes to a close, I cannot help but think about all the progress I’ve made personally, professionally and spiritually. About 500 days ago, I made a promise to myself. The promise was to make Chicago home. Turn a city of pain into my new playground. Create a life filled with love. HoldContinue reading “Empower Myself through Self Care Practices”

Art of Receiving. Art of Reciprocity.

I’m constantly surrounded by love. I know this in the deepest part of my soul. My heart is sometimes overwhelmed with pain. My head gets distracted with trying to quantify things. But my soul knows. It always knows. When my grandfather transitioned, I felt a part of my heart go with him. I felt veryContinue reading “Art of Receiving. Art of Reciprocity.”

Lost in Trauma, Gained through recovery.

I’ve been spending a great deal of time on LinkedIn. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. 2017, I started public speaking workshops for teenagers. 2018, I had a bunch of purging on facebook. 2019, I’m doing awareness on LinkedIn. Officially it’s the last platform to break my silence. I know that I’m loved. I knowContinue reading “Lost in Trauma, Gained through recovery.”

There is NOTHING simple about doing the work.

Every once in a while, the Universe decides to spinkle my life with amazing people. To be fair, my life is filled with amazing people. Sometimes I allow my emotional pain to sit in the drivers seat preventing me from seeing things for what they are and people for who they are. With all theContinue reading “There is NOTHING simple about doing the work.”

Slay the Dragon. Smell the Flowers.

My life is all about setting and crushing goals. And then every once in a while sharing that journey with the world. 🌱 Climbing international corporate ladders was a 6 year process. 🌱 Owning my own company was a 2 year process. 🌱 Ironman finish line was 1 year process. 🌱 Domestic violence (recovery)… I’m officially quantifying it asContinue reading “Slay the Dragon. Smell the Flowers.”

Sometimes the solution is a ROADTRIP

I’m on another road trip! I love the hustle of the city. I loveeeeeee the open roads. For me, city life is still playing by the rules of ‘normal social constructs’. Deviating from these rules is not always received well… Sometimes I need to shrink myself to ‘fit in’. My magic is sometimes resisted… mostlyContinue reading “Sometimes the solution is a ROADTRIP”
