Being Good Enough

I discovered this unpublished blog from 3 years ago and decided to put it out there. Chime in if this is something you experience! I don’t know about anyone else, but I struggle with being or feeling good enough. It plagues me in everything I do.  When I don’t feel good enough, I take steps…

The Mud

I trudge through the mud, pulling each foot slowly forward. Moving at a painstakingly slow pace, I’m not sure I can do this much longer. I contemplate sitting down and allowing the mud to overtake me. I’m in agony, exhausted and wracked with pain. It’s excruciating and I’m ready to give up. Done. No more….

It Takes Guts

I wrote this after my Advanced training in CranioSacral Therapy last July. Every morning for 5 days, we shared in a circle setting and spent the afternoon and evening in sessions. There were 2 groups of five and we did some very intense work, growing, healing, learning and expanding. The following was written after one…

Lemon Macaroon Cheesecake Tartlet

Cheesecake is probably my favorite dessert.  If I opt for dessert, it’s always my go to when I’m at a restaurant.  I never thought a raw cheesecake would ever measure up, but this recipe is fantastic! When I think of Cheesecake, I think of my friend Jen.  She was my roommate for several years and…

The Adrenal Cocktail Creamsicle

Yes!  There is something delicious and simple to make that can support adrenal and hormonal health.  It popped up on my Instagram newsfeed last week and I had to give it a whirl. I started following Vanessa Bradford last week and the information she is posting is spot on!  I have really enjoyed her refreshing…
