Let’s Talk About Endometriosis

There is something in my life that has been a major hurdle for me healthwise.  I know I have been alluding to talking about it in a few recent posts, but I have found it hard to find the words.

How To Make A Big, Scary, Decision

I am sure that you all remember my post about leaving my job at Abercrombie after I realized that I could no longer work in such a toxic industry with a clear conscience. However, what I am talking about today is when I knew that it was the right time for me to make the big, terrifying, and ultimately life-changing decision to quit my safe, corporate job and pursue the uncharted territory of working for myself as a blogger. For months leading up to my decision, I had toyed with the idea of blogging full time, but it was in…
