ANXIETY & FEAR ~ we all can relate

Anxiety and fear…two words that pop into my world more than I would probably like them to.  With what is going on in the world right now, I figured it would be a good time to bring these feelings into discussion.  The uncertainty, lack of routine, and what is to be the new normal has triggered some of the qualities in one another that we often don’t acknowledge.  For me, its trying to dig deep within myself to keep the strength I have gained from many years of therapy and work within myself present on a daily basis.     From a young age, I was taught that anxiety and fear of the unknown are to be a part of my...

SWEAT ~ my story behind movement

Move your body because you love your body, not because you hate it.    I played softball, ran track, and even gave lacrosse a try.  I was a painfully shy young girl, so when it came to sports, I needed a lot of encouragement from the people around me to ensure I was doing a good enough job.  Because I had little support from the outside world, I ended up quitting.  If I could tell my younger self one thing about that time of my life it would be, you are good enough.  You are just as athletic as those other girls.  You can do this for as long as your heart desires and you will be successful.  But, my...
