Mixed Hues
 

Recently, I’ve noticed that I and the other women in my life often shy away from our “muchness.” We make ourselves small in order to take up less space. We do so physically, through our posture and stance, and verbally, by cutting ourselves off or making ourselves less “threatening” by seeming and thereby becoming less sure of ourselves.

5 things I've learned and 5 things I'm leaving behind in 2017

This past year has been kind of exhausting, honestly. 19 was confusing enough and then I turned 20 a few months ago in September and honestly, I’ve just been getting more confused about life ever since.

It’s hard when there are beautiful people out there, but it is so important to love yourself and start lifting others up alongside yourself instead of constantly feeling jealous of other’s beauty, brains, success, etc. 

refocusing myself and jord watches

Life has been hectic beyond hectic this past month, and a friend recently helped me realize that a great deal of my stress was the direct result of my participation and efforts in things I simply did not want to do.
