If you're just tuning in... Hi!!!!! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a good day! Also, let me catch you up on my most recent theme... I've decided for the trillionth time to rehash the dating debacles of my twenties. Maybe decided isn't the right word. More like, was called to. And, as … Continue reading I am a Sun, not a Moon!
Recently I've been waking up at 5 am. That gives me 2 hours—2!—for myself in the morning. Ahhhh. One morning I woke up at 6 instead of 5. It really messed with my rhythm. Also, I didn't get to dig deep into my soul that morning and I think that—exacerbated by poor-quality sleep the night … Continue reading Magical Mornings
In the Darkness I find light In the silence Inspiration The clock strikes 5 And I am beckoned to arise To ponder life In my own intimate space No kid No job Just me And my ever-yearning soul
#DemiLovatoConfident I used to think that some people were just lucky because they were popular and always got invited out. Like they had some sort of pizzaz that just drew people toward them. Now I’m wondering if it's more so that the universe is just giving them back the energy that they put in. Like … Continue reading What’s Wrong with Being Confident?
If I hadn't recently injured my back, I wouldn't have: 1- Met my awesome physical therapist who is passionate about her work and adorable to boot! 2- Gone into the hot tub post-swim last Sunday where I chatted with a man about his health goals and life aspirations—a conversation which left both of us feeling … Continue reading Silver Linings

It was a 3-way call with my grandparents and my cousin, who was 6 years my junior (on the one hand she was like a younger sister to me, sleeping in my room … Continue reading Processing Trauma and Tragedy
Sometimes it’s Kelly Clarkson, other times it's My Fair Lady. Taylor Swift had an interview once where she said she was afraid that when she was in a happy relationship she wouldn’t be able to write about break-ups anymore, which has always been her jam. When I heard this I immediately disagreed. Once we are … Continue reading The Rain in Pain is Anything But Plain
I am no stranger to back pain. I had chronic back pain in my mid-twenties for 1.5 years. It was depressing as hell. And frustrating too—going from PT to PT trying to figure out the best treatment for it. All while continuing to work full time and have an hour commute each way. I marinated … Continue reading Back Pain is Back
I did a 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2010. I wanted to be a certified yoga instructor before I graduated from my grad program to become a registered dietitian. I had this urge inside of me, that I did not want to be just a registered dietitian, but also a yoga instructor—to show the world … Continue reading The Pre-Exile Jew – Part 2
I passed by a fountain during my lunch break walk. I thought, “That fountain looks so happy!” What does that even mean? How can a fountain be happy? Because the water was gushing out unabashedly. It didn’t care how messy it was. It wasn’t self-conscious about what others thought of how it expressed itself. It … Continue reading What is Joy?
