Part 2: My Unhealthy Relationship with Food and How “I know br​eakthrough is coming”…

This is one of my favorite song lyrics of all time. It’s from the song “Won’t Stop Now”, by my favorite Worship Band, Elevation Worship. The whole chorus goes: I know breakthrough is comingBy faith I see a miracleMy God made me a promiseAnd it won’t stop now… In 2018, I got my breakthrough, and it was absolutely glorious and divine.

Part 1: My Unhealthy Relationship with Food and All the Ugly Truths I’ve Never Shared

In so many ways, it is liberating to write this post. I’ve been wanting to write it for about a year, but every time I would start, things would get bad again, and I would start to feel like a fraud. But, I told a close friend this morning that it’s time. I’m finally here. I’m finally at a place where I can authentically and transparently tell this part of my story. It’s freeing, and also a little scary. It’s scary to expose a previous truth that I lived for so many years, but it’s something I feel ready to do. I have this need to be honest with you. I also have this need to be real and transparent and bare it all here in my little corner of the internet. It’s both liberating and terrifying, but mainly, it’s freeing.

The Truth About Anxiety & How There is No Shame in Getting Help

First things first. Anxiety Sucks.  I’ve been studying anxiety disorders, other related disorders and mental health topics for close to 10 years now, so imagine my surprise (and relief) when my family doctor suggested that I get tested for anxiety. I say surprise because “I should have known”… As someone who has written hundreds of pages in research papers related to topics in the mental health … Continue reading The Truth About Anxiety & How There is No Shame in Getting Help

“Just you” is already enough…

We are living in a time where what you see is not what you get. Everyone is starting to look the same thanks to filters and facetune. We all have perfectly smooth, unblemished skin, with bright white eyes and teeth. Our noses are all a little smaller, and the contour on our cheeks is amplified with our secret apps. Even our waistlines are shrinking right … Continue reading “Just you” is already enough…

Be Real (but not too real): Bending Over Backwards to Meet Society’s New Rules on Being Authentic

  Hello All, I have to be honest… I’m a bit fired up as I start this post. *Insert cracking of knuckles here* I’ve been a little under the weather in bed for the last couple of days, in and out of thought, reflecting on past posts, comments and reactions to previous posts, and just how I feel about it all.
