Baggage. I’ve been thinking a lot about baggage lately. No – not my work bag, purse, lunch bag and gym bag… but the emotional bags that we carry every day that add to our struggles. Like my insecurity satchel and the I’m not good enough carry on with its matching […]

Are you carrying a lot of bags?!? Emotional bags can ...

Let’s all bloom today… together. Moving into Good Friday and a beautiful Easter holiday; I’m going to let positivity rule my life today.  I’m going to let it cradle me, fill me and I’m going to share it with everyone. I woke up today, still feeling a smidge under the […]

Blooming together with positivity, what inspires you?
