Dear Planet, I’m sorry we don’t give a Fuck

Dear Planet, I’m sorry we don’t give a fuck… Love Steph aka Destroyer of the world Guys I am freaking out just a little. OK, deep breath.  Allow me to explain like a normalish person. I just spent the better part of the evening educating myself on the current state of the environment. Yea, that’s right. I just went down the black hole of global warming and there was nothing warm about it. I feel fearful, I feel helpless, I feel we as a species are failing each other. I feel we are…

Dear 2016,

Dear 2016, I stood out on the edge of 2015 with a steady gaze looking towards you, contemplating the mysteries ahead of me. I could see you through the trees and knew the only way was forward through the shadows.  I was ready for you, prepared and determined to explore your secrets.

Once I reached you-you turned the path beneath me. This was a strange forest…

Three Inspirational Women you Should Get to Know This Year

The end of the year 2016 is quickly approaching, and as January 1st races forward, I find myself sitting and reflecting more and more about what I have discovered this year. What milestones have I reached? Lessons learned? How have I been influenced? This year was all about the self. Me, me, me… And not in a bad way. Self-evaluation, self-discovery, self-love, self-improvement, self-destruction. You name it and I probably experienced it this year. What a whirlwind. I started this year with a purposeful need to go deeper and I have. Within my own…

Ramblings on Risk

Good day beloved readers. I am looking to share some rambling thoughts with you today. I am looking for some advice and wisdom from you and myself… Deep breath, and here we go. The entire meaning of the above quote is all that has been on my mind lately. An idea of risk, decisions, and potential opportunities lost. It seems I am in a purgatory of sorts. A place in between action, change and risk and a place of comfort, stability, and normalcy. The last thoughts before you step onto that new path that branches from your current direction…

Searching for Happiness – What Makes me *$&*ing Miserable

Searching for Happiness – Self Love Books

I have been reading like a madwoman this year. My reading adventures have consisted of biographies, fiction, non-fiction, and self-help. One thing I have discovered on my reading adventures is that there are a lot of really, really bad self-help books out there. Seriously… In fact, it is no wonder why more people don’t read these types of books. Many can be overwhelming and unmotivating, leaving you feeling confused and discouraged. Don’t let those bad books discourage you from gaining the benefits of the good self-help books that are out there…
