Uncomfortable: The “C” Word – CHANGE | A Year of Growth

Was scrolling through pictures I was “tagged in” the other day, and it legitimately made me stop what I was doing.

MBA Graduation 2017

It’s been over a year since I packed up my life (and Nina) and moved to Phoenix, just about a year that I’ve been single – I know right?, and I’ve been with Dansons #DreamJob for a little over a year now as well.
When I saw all those old pictures this moment of realization hit me like a frikin brick. Does that ever happen to you? You know something, but then it’s like oh snap! I REALLY understand it now. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: The “C” Word – CHANGE | A Year of Growth”

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: When You Think He’s “THE ONE” but He Isn’t

So, let me start this off by saying that I LOVE this guy’s family. We still have a “good” relationship and they are supportive of different events in my life – like my TEDx talk. Which honestly, means a lot to me.
But, what messed me up with this relationship, was the expectations created from thinking that he was the one.   Continue reading “Uncomfortable: When You Think He’s “THE ONE” but He Isn’t”

Uncomfortable: Your “First Love” and What that Relationship Teaches You (Part1)

So, my first real relationship was when I was a Junior in High School. We had been friends for a while, and initially we had planned on being “friends with benefits” (sorry Mom and Dad). But, the more we got to know each other the more we liked each other – go figure – and that lead us down the yellow brick road to (theme music please) da-da-da-naaaa: dating.

The 5 most important things I learned from that relationship are as follows: Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Your “First Love” and What that Relationship Teaches You (Part1)”

Uncomfortable: My Dad the Professional Badass – Growing up with a Lieutenant Colonel

Growing up everyone was scared of my Dad. He was loud and macho and he would put the fear of God into you if he needed to. Talk about scaring your children (and their friends) straight. All that being said, he is one of the people in my life that I respect the most. And personally, I believe that a little “fear of Dad” is a good thing for kids – it was one heck of a motivator!  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: My Dad the Professional Badass – Growing up with a Lieutenant Colonel”
