Time To Rise...

Women Singing Earth by Mary Southard
Since I was almost as young as I can remember, I took on the role of being the caretaker in my home. Growing up in a drug induced and abusive environment, there was always this inherent need to make sure my mom and my siblings were safe.

Rising Woman ~ Jaylene Welch

I'm super excited to introduce Jaylene Welch to The Rising Woman Project as her story has inspired me since first seeing her back in 2012. Although I think we've only met once or twice in person, I feel like we have traveled parallel paths in many ways. Thank you for sharing your story here, Jaylene!

Rising Woman ~ Constanza Eliana Chinea

I'm honored and humbled to introduce the next guest and conversation to the Rising Woman Project, Constanza Eliana Chinea

If we are going to empower women to rise, then we must empower them ALL. I'm thankful to provide a space for all women to share all stories and passions, as well as for all women to be able to find stories to be empowered and uplifted by.

Rising Womxn ~ Linda Schwartz

I am deeply honored to introduce our first Rising Woman interview of 2019, my very dear friend, Linda Schwartz! Linda & I quickly became friends in 2011 while we both were diving into the transformational work of Landmark's curriculum for living. Over the years our paths have weaved in and out and it has been such a joy to watch her evolve and see the beautiful life that she's creating today. 

In this interview, Linda takes us through her journey of personal growth and self discovery from a treacherous childhood to becoming a woman who is empowered and making a difference in the world today.

Confession: I Almost Drank

It has been 605 days today since I've had a drink of alcohol. That’s not a particular/special milestone, it’s just another day, however it is one more day that I’m thankful for. 

Last weekend I thought really hard about drinking. It all looks so fun and glamorous out there!

The Dating Game

I have been delving in and out of the dating world for the past almost 3 years. What a roller coaster, I tell ya! 

I am learning SO much and I’m mostly thankful for the experiences.

The Story is Being Written...

Sharing this with you is super scary for me, but I feel like I don't have a choice anymore. I need to put this out there to you, and to the Universe, to hold me to my word.

Not a Single Mom...

Ok, I am a Single Mom.

But not by the terms that you probably just read that.

You Don't Have To Do More...

I have been thinking a lot lately about what I'm creating for my life in 2019.

The New Year is always my favorite time of the year and one of my favorite holidays. I have always loved new beginnings and fresh starts.

Too Many Rules, Not Enough Fun!

I'm coming out of a bit of a funk over the last week or so and took a few days off from my writing to let myself get through it.

This weekend I had a little surprise visitor that I haven't had in quite some time...

We shall call him Loneliness!

Staying Sober on the Holidays and the Hard Days

This post is for my #soberwarriors #sobercurious or just plain #sober on the holidays and the hard days...

Holidays and special occasions can be hard! There is so much normalization around drinking and partying around the holidays and special occasions.
