lifestyle and wellbeing

 

I live with a chronic illness, and between that, and recovery from addiction, I’ve worked hard to cultivate a healthy lifestyle through diet, supplements, and spirituality. It’s true that I’m a bit of a hippie, and although I do shy away from any and all religion, I’ve found that things that get me closer to my body and the world truly benefit me. They also help with my mental health, including anxiety and depression.

I’m an American transplant living in the UK, which has created some difficulty in adjusting as well as some humorous anecdotes. I also have some lighthearted videos, discussions about feminism, and short stories housed here. There is truly something for everyone.

Please read on, and don’t forget to comment and share what moves you. Follow me on social media to ensure you’re always up to date on my latest posts.

  • I don't have any big, fancy words today. I have only the love in my heart, and the depth of how much I miss you. You're ageless now, beautiful and in no pain. But if things were different, today you would be 53. Sometimes it hurts so badly I can hardly breathe. Happy birthday, mom.
