How this Hippy got her Groove back

The free-spirited, fly by the seat of your pants lifestyle is not for me. I enjoy freedom and am frequently called a Hippy, but I am lady who needs structure in her day. I am not new to creating schedules for myself as a way to feel better either. When I was single and really wanting to find the love of my life, I created what I now call a Love Schedule to begin re-creating that part of my life just like I’ve done with my career now. I showed up every day for myself which increased my self-trust and confidence and that energy is what I sent out into the world. Read More

I knew myself, I knew that I liked to have control over my house and I also knew that the routines I had set up for myself were very carefully crafted to make myself feel safe in my day to day life. When I entered a relationship for the first time in years, I realized the so-called safety I'd created was fake and nothing made this more apparent than moving in with someone again. Read More

3 Ways to Find Yourself After a Breakup

So often in the beginning stages of a new relationship, I would unintentionally turn into a different person hoping beyond hope that what I was saying and doing would be enough for him to love. I didn’t think it was lying, I could learn to cook, and maybe I did like snowboarding, I just didn’t know it? Obviously this was not a good idea though, and this became even more apparent when my ex broke up with me out of the blue and I was left homeless, jobless and single. Read More
