While I recognize that there are days that just suck and that brain chemistry can have something to do with that, we also have free will. We also have the ability to make a decision to do something different and begin the process of rewiring the brain. And, no, that doesn’t make it easy. That doesn’t make every day full of sunshine and butterflies. Some days still fucking suck. But we do not have to live every day like in misery.Continue reading “6 Key Lessons for Living a Happier Life”

Which, during COVID-19 is much more difficult with shelter in place orders and most states ordering non-essential businesses to close. So, it’s time to update that and talk about some ways you can deal with isolation and minimize burnout when the world is scary and we’re being told to stay the fuck at home for our safety and for the safety of others.Continue reading “Dealing With Isolation & Minimizing Burnout: COVID-19 Edition”

And before I go any further into this, let me give a brief disclaimer.Continue reading “Learn to Own Your Shit When Dating”
Yall. I finally finished Morning Meltdown Phase 1 for the second time. I was part of the early training group during the summer. When I decided to part ways as a coach, they took away access to the program that I paid $160 for.
It is no secret that I have CPTSD and OCD. Of course, over the years, I’ve learned to adapt and to take care of myself appropriately. And that includes a lot of different things.
