Self-Worth, Weight & Love Life

This is possibly the most terrifying and liberating blog post I’ve ever written.

The Glory of Self-Care

The short version: I use a ton of coconut oil and drop my stories. The long version: I think more people are talking about self-care these days, and making it a point to emphasize it with the realization that taking care of yourself means you perform better in every other aspect of your life. Mainstream […]
