Tips & How-Tos


How to start feeling the healing.

You know those things you keep bottled up inside? Stored away for safe keeping because you don’t want to process, understand, or deal with any sort of emotion? Well, I hate to break it to you, but that bottle is getting full, and it’s about to do a Diet Coke and Mentos experiment on your ass.

It's time to slowly take small sips. It's time to process and understand what you're feeling...why you're feeling. It's time to water the grow and heal with the feel fertilizer.

It's time to feel the heal.

Can I Phone A Friend?

Back in high school, a wise friend once told me:

"The older you get, you will start to realize that you only have five friends. And if you're really lucky, you will have two really good friends."

I thought that was crazy but man was he right.

But as much as I wanted friends, making new friends as an adult is hard. But you don't have to make things so difficult for yourself. You don't have to start from scratch to find friends. You have friends. You just have to reach out more.

How To Start Loving Yourself In A Lonely World

We always hear to treat others the way you want to be treated, and that is something I try to live my life by. Putting others first is something I have always kept as a priority. Being positive and encouraging to my friends when they need someone on their side? I'm there. But, often times we forget to see ourselves as a friend. And when everyone seems to be so far away, we tend to shoot down the one person who is always there for us, no matter what. I'm talking about you, yourself, and you.

Why you need to feel, so you can heal.

For many years, I convinced myself that feelings weren't something I wanted to get my hands into again. I closed the door, built a wall, refused to take myself down that path.

I lived safe for many years. Just starting into the beautiful blue water of life that was in front of me, making every excuse not to jump in. But this past year, I decided to climb the wall and look ahead, I took the time to grow and heal. I took some risks, I took a chance and decided to feel.

You cannot heal or grow without feeling. Your soul doesn’t work that way. If we spent time trying to find closure within ourselves to understand our feelings better, I think we would all live happier and healthier lives.
