You know what I’ve realized over the past couple of months? That EVERYTHING, literally everything, ebs and flows. I know we’ve talked about change and it being a constant, but every once in a while we get in these ruts – at least, I know I do… Where you think, feel, believe, that everything is staying the same – that you are stagnant or even trapped.

Uncomfortable: Relationships | Getting Back On The Horse
So clearly, this is something that has been prevalent on my mind as of late. I’ve been single for about 6 months now, and the idea of entering the dating pool again is somewhat terrifying. And I’m sure many of you feel the same way…
I’ve dipped my toe here and there, but I haven’t made the full on plunge yet. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Relationships | Getting Back On The Horse”
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: The “C” Word – CHANGE | What’s Your New Years Resolution?
I know that we touched on this in the previous blog, but I wanted to follow up with y’all – because I have some questions…
Do you make a New Years resolution every year? Or do you do it when you know something big needs to happen, or is going to happen? What motivates you to make a resolution? Continue reading “Uncomfortable: The “C” Word – CHANGE | What’s Your New Years Resolution?”
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: Girls are Crazy Because Guys are ***holes
Have you heard of the “crazy/hot scale” A.K.A. the “Hot Crazy Matrix”? If you haven’t, sadly, it is a thing for this generation. But, ya know what? I think it is TRASH!!!! 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: Why Can’t We All be Like the Drunk Girls in the Bathroom?
One thing that I learned working as a #JackGirl in the Reno Rodeo this year, is that women LOVE to hate on other women… And the huge resounding question in my head goes like this: WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!? Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Why Can’t We All be Like the Drunk Girls in the Bathroom?”
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: Freedom of Speech | Does it Still Exist?
More than five different Conservative events, on college campuses, have been cancelled since the beginning of this year due to violence, or the threat of violence against the scheduled speakers.
Milo Yiannopoulos had two events cancelled at the beginning of the year. One at UC Davis in January and one at UC Berkeley in February.
At the Berkeley event – all hell broke loose, literally. The protestors caused about $100,000 in damage – breaking windows, throwing rocks, and setting a generator and some trees on fire on campus. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Freedom of Speech | Does it Still Exist?”
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”
