Be a Friend to Yourself

Most of us have high expectations of both ourselves and others. This is not always a bad thing. We set goals, we make plans, we want to be successful people as it relates to family, relationships, and money. But oftentimes, how we react to a different outcome of an expectation we had of ourselves can […]

Suicide Prevention: A New Conversation

  September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and our community comes together to promote suicide prevention awareness. Understanding and discussing issues surrounding suicide is an important way to help in prevention efforts and help those who struggle with mental health concerns.

Addiction: The Secret Shame

    It’s been called “the monkey on your back” and other phrases that suggest the seemingly unshakeable hold of addiction.  Just when you think you’ve kicked it, it’s back again and you find yourself discouraged, full of shame and even hopeless.  Alcoholism and addiction are an epidemic in our society, with people falling into self-medicating […]

As many of our blog posts are, this post was inspired by another blogger’s article I found on TinyBuddha.com. As someone who has an interest in fitness, I’ve noticed that there are so many ways for people to achieve their fitness goals.

Caring Confrontation

Standing up for yourself can feel really… intimidating. Seems like a silly concept, right? But, when you think about it, you are the only person who knows how you truly feel about things.

Love: In its Entirety

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s not uncommon for people to become consumed by the idea of love. For some, it is an overwhelmingly exciting feeling! They are anticipating what their significant other has planned for them, what they have planned for their significant other, or what they and their significant other have […]

Welcome to Your Life

It is very easy to get distracted from the “here and now“. What with deadlines, future assignments, goals we want to hit, and plans we can’t wait to make, is there really any time TO be present?
