It’s been a challenging week to process. Mentally & emotionally. I’ve heard the word twice this week. And I’d be lying if I said it didn’t affect me. Suicide. Twice in the same day, I was faced with working through the very real topic of suicide. First, a friend called crying to say that her daughter wanted to and acted on attempting to take her own life. Later that same day, the news about Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss came across the feed. My heart sank, I uttered a low “ugh” and… Read More »It’s Ok To Say, “I’m Not In A Good Place.”

In October that year, I created & started The ‘Me Project’ – 30 Days of Getting My Sh*t Together (see our ‘Me Project’ page) to get my life back on track through my self and soul care. I was seeking opportunities to feed my mind, body & soul when a Firewalk came across my FB feed through a friend.

Are you being true to yourself? ???? LISTEN. ✨ That was the biggest lesson that I learned during my Firewalk this time around. Listen. ✨ I walked but, right before my foot hit the ground, I knew that I had made a mistake & I wasn’t actually ready.
