How to Ask for What You Want (Even if the Answer is No)

By | Career + Academics, Self Love & Empowerment | No Comments

 

Hello! It’s 2018! And I’ve finally decided to become more assertive!

 
lol took me long enough.

And for the record, I’m learning to ask for what I want not because I made an actual conscious effort to do so – but because over the past few months I’ve chased after some responsibilities that pretty much made it a requirement. A new career endeavor. Buying a house in Los Angeles (omg I’m broke). Remodeling. Hiring new people. Hence why this blog has sounded eerily similar to crickets. Read More

The Fine Line Between Self-Improvement and Self-Acceptance

By | Self Love & Empowerment | No Comments

 

My profession is a bit of a contradiction.

 

Life coaching is all about self-improvement. Get up early! Be productive! Think positive! Get the job! 

But it’s also all about self-acceptance. You’re beautiful the way you are! They should love you for you! 

Of course, those examples are exceptionally easy. Accept what you cannot control, and improve on what you can. Read More

-The Crown, Season 1.

By | Self Love & Empowerment | No Comments

 

I’ve always identified with being an old soul.

 

While I admire shiny new pennies and all of their enthusiasm for life, there’s something compelling about the deep nature that comes with settling into yourself. Old souls have a deep appreciation for the life they live, but fond respect for the life before. If you totally understand what I’m talking about, then chances are – you’re an old soul. Here are a few more signs that you could fall into this camp! Read More

There’s an epidemic attacking this generation.

I’m sure of it. And not just because I feel like it’s personally attacking me as well, but because it’s attacking my clients. My gorgeous, high-functioning, creative, intelligent, and successful clients. I mean these are girls who PAY PRECIOUS MONIES to talk to someone about their goals, dreams, and setbacks. These girls have their shit together, ya know? Read More

Learning How to Quit as an Adult

By | Self Love & Empowerment | No Comments

 
 

Growing up, we were told never to quit something we committed to.

 
Quitting was a sign of laziness. A sign of weakness. And worse, a sign of entitlement. Our parents made sure we followed through on anything we signed up for, regardless if it was absolutely agonizing. So learning how to quit as an adult can be quite the challenge past the age of 17. This habit of following through has served us well – but it’s also created a few inefficient stretches and definitely caused some unnecessary stress in our lives. Instead of leaning on our best judgment to decide how to continue, we default to a previous habit that doesn’t account for extenuating circumstances. Read More

I turned 30 this summer.

Yes, a few belated happy birthdays would be lovely to hear, but this really isn’t about THAT (wink). This is about all of the 30 lessons I’ve learned leading up to this 30th birthday.

Because the reality was, I dreaded my 30th birthday.

 I totally expected it to be terrible. That’s what everyone says, right? I feared the worst. But before my 30th birthday arrived, I started talking to people about their experiences turning 30. And what I found was fascinating. Read More
