Do you feel stuck?
Do you feel like you do the same thing day in and day out with minimal effort or reward? Do you feel satisfied in life? Do you feel satisfied with your job or in your relationship? Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Learning When to Swerve”
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. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Relationships | Falling in Love with Yourself Again – Part 2”
Ohkay, seriously though – fitness and health are touchy subjects. We all have friends who have gained weight as they aged, or the friends that had an eating disorder once upon a time, or those friends that are ANNOYINGLY into fitness now. And maybe you yourself, fall into one of those categories. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Health and Wellness | Breaking the Cycle”
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”
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”
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”
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”
Getting back into the gym after having an eating disorder can be tricky, and it sure isn’t easy. It is easy however, to get carried away and become addicted to something else – that could potentially give you the same result as the eating disorder had: being (or wanting to be) the thinnest person in the room, i.e. “the drive for thinness“. Which we all know, is NOT GOOD. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: The Gym and an Eating Disorder”
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”
I’ve had a job since I was 15 years old – I am now 26 and I was just laid off, due to budget cuts. This is the first time that I have NOT had a job in my adult life. I went from being sad, to being mad, to feeling like a piece of garbage. Having a job has always been a part of my identity. So, what do you do when a piece of you is removed from the picture? Unwillingly mind you… Continue reading “Uncomfortable: I Got Laid Off…”
