From Breath to Bounty

The physical manifestation of DOING seems simple enough. Action, we are taught, is almost instinctive in its ease. We are raised with the notion of simply doing to produce any given result, and taught that the consequence of such will shake itself out. If all you know is to simply do a thing, then it’s…

START

Inhale… Here’s the reality for many people: they know WHAT they want. They don’t know HOW to get what they want. Even without the loftier wishes, hopes and dreams of the most ambitious of imaginations… getting started is often the hardest part. The naive will say ‘just start.’ Okay. Just start WHAT? The crafty will…

I AM… Laura

I first learned about the power of my voice while performing in theater as a young girl; I noticed that it was the only time people would listen to me. I became obsessed with theater from then on, and loved the ability to become other people through various roles. But as I got older I…

Listen…

… to the one person who you are least likely to listen to. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how potent, how perfect a message is. If the wrong person for you is conveying it, there’s a pretty excellent chance that you’re not going to pay attention. And even if you do (pay attention), you’ll likely listen…

Right now, self care means taking time to yourself to take inventory of what you personally need, to best function in your own life and to be a beneficial factor in the lives of others. But I haven’t always felt that way. Growing up, the idea of self care was as foreign as an undiscovered…

LOVE: Words & Weapons

“I’m so fat.” “I’m such a loser.” “My face is so ugly.” “My hair is the worst.” “I can’t do that because…” If I had a dime for every person who said those things and so much worse in my presence… I’ve often pontificated about the danger of weaponizing words, particularly against yourself. That if…

Love, Drew

When I think of self care, so much comes to mind. I initially think of health, because that notion has been ingrained in our psyche since we were kids. Despite that constant reminder that we should eat right and exercise, many of us just don’t. Outside of that, I think of self care in terms…

Love, Jade

When I think of self care, I think of responsibility. Nobody is going to take care of you but you. They don’t have to – and even if they did – they are not you and don’t know what you truly need to be fulfilled. It is honestly listening to what your needs are and…

Love, Kelly

When someone mentions self-care, I literally conjure up feelings of maternal instincts… like nurturing your inner child. A need to play, heal or even practice discipline can be expressions of self-care. As an empath, I believe in the energetic expression and transfer of matter. As a people-pleaser, I’m guilty of sometimes letting the basic idea…

Love, Delaney

I’m 55 years old. Some days I feel 35, and other days I’m closer to 85. I spent 20 years as an International Flight Attendant and 15 years managing talent in the entertainment industry. I’m also mother to two incredible sons. My life has always been about taking care of people in some form or…
