Uncomfortable: Relationships | Falling in Love with Yourself Again

It’s been a hot minute since I posted in here, and I apologize for that. Life has a funny way of getting in the way sometimes, and I wanted to think this whole thing through before posting about it.
As some of you know, my boyfriend (of two years) and I split a few months back… and while some people go out and blow off steam or jump back into another relationship (let’s be honest, like I have in the past multiple times) – this time was different.  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Relationships | Falling in Love with Yourself Again”

Uncomfortable: Taking Ownership of Our Mistakes

No one likes to admit when they’re wrong. It’s this human instinct we possess to protect ourselves from the hurt, from the bad that may ensue after we make a mistake. So, because of this, we have a legitimate issue when it comes to owning our mistakes, our flaws, our imperfections. And everyone has them; but it is so much easier for us to point out the flaws in others than it is for us to take a good hard look at ourselves.  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Taking Ownership of Our Mistakes”

Uncomfortable: Who do You Want to be?

Yes, this is a legit deep question here. However, we all ask ourselves this question at some point. Some of us maybe once a week, or a couple times a month, and others – maybe several times a day. The key here is that we are asking ourselves who we want to be, not whatContinue reading “Uncomfortable: Who do You Want to be?”

Women are crazy because men make us crazy (for the most part); as there are always exceptions to the rule…  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Girls are Crazy Because Guys are ***holes”

Uncomfortable: Stereotypes | Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover

So, I’m dancing in the Jack Tent this year at the Reno Rodeo... if you’re from Reno you know that the Jack Tent is the place to be during Rodeo. It’s a blast and it is known for its dancers. Myself, and three other fine ladies, make up that group this year.  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Stereotypes | Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover”

Uncomfortable: My Continuous Battle with Bulimia Nervosa

This is not a comfortable conversation at all, but that’s what this blog is all about, right? Honesty?!
A lot of people look at eating disorders as a “phase” in someone’s life. But, what many people don’t understand, and what most of us (who have had an eating disorder) go through, is wayyyyyy more complicated than a phase. An eating disorder is a mindset, and changing that mindset and your ideas about your body, isn’t always easy. For me, this has proven to be a constant battle…  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: My Continuous Battle with Bulimia Nervosa”

Uncomfortable: Non-Negotiables | 3 Tips for Sticking to Your Guns

A couple blogs ago I wrote about the importance of non-negotiables in a relationship. But, not all of us have defined our “non-negotiables” for life. The promises we make to our friends and family, to our bosses, ourselves, and our lovers. Non-negotiables are the things in life that you are not willing to negotiate on, the beliefs you will fight tooth and nail over and for.
They follow your ideals and values and outline what you will and will not accept from others – as well as what you will and will not accept from yourself. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Non-Negotiables | 3 Tips for Sticking to Your Guns”
