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.

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: 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: Raw Beauty | Chillin with No Makeup on

We are told that we need to be “dimes” all the time. That our hair and makeup have to be perfect. That we can’t have an ounce of fat on us. That our outfit better be “on point”. Why? Because society has said so? Beauty is beauty, everyone is beautiful in their own way – and raw beauty is b-e-a-uuuuutiful. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Raw Beauty | Chillin with No Makeup on”
