“If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it.” -Yogi Bhajan

This quote from Yogi Bhajan perfectly describes my intention and inspiration behind the creation of this blog.

For over 10 years I have studied self help books that have guided me to learning everything I can about healing myself through mental illness and to come out thriving. I could write a whole freaking book on my journey and this path to healing (and one day I intend to) but for the purpose of keeping this “about me” brief, I will spare you the details for the moment and leave you with an idea of what to expect:

My intention is to teach and share what I am learning. To share the tools I have learned in my personal healing process so I can continue to master it whether it’s yoga principals, meditation techniques, journaling, etc., I have a lot to say! It would be in poor taste to keep these tools a secret because these are things I really believe in because they have worked for me during my teen years of living with anxiety and depression to early adulthood of tragically losing my father to suicide. I have dedicated my life to healing myself and it’s pretty damn rewarding and I cannot imagine my life any other way.

In order for me to share, I need to remain as “me” as possible. My grammar can be kinda sucky and occasionally you might find inappropriate words. I do not claim to be a perfect yoga teacher or blogger because again, I share and teach from where I am. I want to share that even if you don’t feel perfect where you are, you are exactly where you need to be and from there you will heal and grow.

By no means am I popular/ think I’m super interesting or even strive for tons of traffic on this page, I write and share because it feels good to me. What I know for sure is one of my favorite ways to heal is to get doped up on caffeine and write my damn heart out on all the things I feel so passionately about. I believe that in the moments where you allow yourself to fall into this  f l o w  it has something to do with your purpose and you should really follow that calling. So, here I am.

With all that said, this is me: a 26-year-old college student. Amateur writer and future author. Health, fitness, and wellness lover. Preschool/toddler teacher’s assistant by day, yoga and meditation teacher by night. Living in alignment and being guided AF to wherever that may take me.

My lovely teacher Gabby Bernstein said it best, “If I do not share my stories, I WILL die.”
