What I Learned From 30 Days of Yoga

I can’t say whether or not my depression has gotten better. Maybe it has, and I am just too down currently to notice it. I can say that I have been thinking more about my actions and how it affects others, whether close or far from me. This incredible journey of soul searching and discovery…

Day 23-30: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

This yoga journey has awoken my love for stretching and meditation. It was supposed to focus on helping me write, guiding me through depression, and taking a moment to understand myself. At the end of this journey, I have come to realize that I am but a small fish in a big pond. My mortal…

April in Review

April was a difficult month and thank God it is over. Let’s just be clear that I met none of my writing goals and none of my social media account goals. I feel like I have had difficult months for the last few months and it’s time for a change I tell you! Here are…

Fighting Beyond the Pain

The last few weeks have been pretty hard for me. There has been tremendous pain, overwhelming anxiety, and that no good bastard name depression. It hasn’t been easy, there were moments when I got so upset I just started throwing pillows. I really didn’t want to break anything but also needed to get my frustration…
