10 Ways to Love Your Body Through Chronic Illness

I am a chronic illness warrior. 

I say that loud and proud now, but that wasn’t always the case. When my chronic illness story began over 15 years ago, I did not love my body. I despised it. I cringed at the fact that I didn’t know what was happening, that I had no answers to my symptoms, and I felt like a medical mystery no one could solve. 

Fast-forward to today, and I have three diagnoses: chronic migraine, generalized anxiety disorder and depression.

All the doubts and questions flood your mind. “Are they the right one for me? How do I know this is the right decision? Are they going to break my heart?

4 Ways to Stop Focusing on Your Flaws & Fixate on Your Beauty

Perspective is everything. 

From angles to lighting to colors and to sizes, we view things from a very unique perspective. This also applies to how we see our body. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve scrolled through Instagram and marveled at how the light hit someone’s face just right to showcase their perfect skin, or at how the right angle, pose, and curve seemed to be accentuated perfectly.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” 

This is something we hear from a very young age. Do you believe in this statement? I haven’t always been the best role model when it comes to loving my body, my features or my curvy waistline.

Six years ago, I was a HOT MESS! My life was in chaos. My MIND was in chaos. I was depressed, confused, and frustrated. I had no vision, no direction, and could NOT see my next steps. I was STUCK.

How to Love Your Body - Overcoming My Eating Disorder

I never felt like I was enough. 

As a little girl, I compared myself to my friends who were more outgoing, popular, stylish, and thinner. I was quiet and shy, and believed I would never measure up or be successful because of it. My self-loathing magnified when I hit puberty and started noticing changes in my body.

How to Let Go of Your Imperfections and See the Beauty

WE EQUATE OUR BODY’S SIZE TO OUR SELF-WORTH. 

“You are not thin enough, tall enough, tan enough, your skin or hair isn’t flawless, your teeth could be whiter…” where is this invisible scale on which we measure ourselves?

4 Ways to Tackle Job Uncertainty

“You are a sophomore now, I recommend you choose a major very soon.” 

Those words pressured me to the point of picking up a book filled with a list of majors. Right there and then I flipped through the list and picked the one my finger fell on: Communication Sciences and Disorders. {Quickly googling the job placement statistics…..98%. Holy goodness, dad would be proud.}

7 Ways to Integrate Deeper Vulnerability into Your Life

Vulnerability is an amazing, life-changing thing.

It has the power to propel you out of your comfort zone and guide you into a stronger, more transparent version of yourself. But it’s also scary, nerve-wracking, and can be really, really hard to do on a regular basis. That’s why a lot of us have large, life-changing moments of vulnerability. We build up the courage, take the leap, and then settle back into our comfort zones for a while.

How to Escape Your Comfort Zone for GOOD!

They’re different for every person. They change with culture, upbringing, beliefs, lifestyles, and – get this – circumstances. Extroverted people will have different areas of comfort than introverted people. Musicians will (probably) have different comfort zones than mathematicians. (I just say this because I’m a musician, and very much not a mathematician.) Comfort zones aren’t all bad until they start controlling your life.

Why Most Women Think They’re Bigger than They Really Are + How to Combat Body Insecurity 

Oh the joys of spring cleaning

I stepped into my closet, and overwhelm hit me in the face. So.Much.Stuff. As I sifted through every clothing item in my closet, I thought to myself, “Almost 1/3 of my closet doesn’t even fit me anymore.” So, I immediately began to toss random clothing items to the side. “Those shorts can’t possibly fit me. I bought those when I was in much better shape. That shirt can’t possibly fit me. It’s two years old.”

5 Ways to Tap into Your Creativity

I never used to consider myself to be a creative person.

When I was young, I loved to draw and do arts and crafts, but as I grew older I focused more on school and sports. I remember always feeling moved by art though. I would watch a good film, see a pink and orange sunset, or listen to music and just feel this pull. This pull to create something that would invoke others to feel something, just as art in its various forms, made me feel something.
