"Before you start to get Hefty happy and throw out all the things, get to understand several ways where you can follow the righteous way to minimalism without having to throw away a single thing."

"He asked me, 'Why can’t you just love yourself?' His concern was real…

Why can't I?

I decided right then and there to set out on a journey of self-love, and these are the steps I took to do just that."

"when we are able to start our mornings on our own terms, we tend to move through our day in a better headspace. We might have more patience or feel better prepared to tackle the day ahead. While a missed alarm is inevitable, having a solid morning routine is a great way to set yourself up for a successful day ahead."

"I'm a big advocate for turning your home into a safe haven by surrounding yourself with only the items that evoke joy and remind you of memories long past. You should be able to waltz in and feel overwhelmingly inspired and at peace from the very moment you slip off your shoes and sink into yourself..."

"There has been a positive media movement encouraging body positivity and acceptance. However, despite these efforts, we are still bombarded with messages and images that say otherwise. It can be confusing to draw the line between pursuing personal health versus trying to change our bodies, and when both can be healthily intermingled."

"I was a very picky child. No foods I wasn’t familiar with, and most definably- fried foods were my weapon of choice. Our daily meals consisted of french fries, pastas, chicken nuggets, chili, anything with cheese, and lots and lots of bread."

"Stroll through the fascinating mix of wayward cobbled streets and the perfectly cornered “squares” of Savannah, GA and you will quickly notice something that you can’t just find in any other brightly colored coastal town. Savannah brings something different to the Southern coast—something that only an old city charmed with artsy backpack-clad Savannah College of Art and Design students, locally owned coffee shops, a well-preserved Gullah culture and antique homes unscathed by General Sherman himself, can conjure."

"Ah, the roaring Twenties - not the decade of bathtub hooch and Gatsby parties, but the decade of serial bad dates and alcohol that could be compared to bathtub hooch. The 10 years nestled between 19 and 30 are transformative, to say the least. There is a lot of take, and even more give. It’s a time of discovering and rediscovering yourself as a human and member of society. It’s a time to decide if you’ll sink or if you’ll swim."

"Body dysmorphia is a mental condition in which a person believes a part, or parts, of his or her body is extremely flawed. I didn’t know there was a name for what I experienced, or that anyone else experienced it too, until just last year.
