  • Boundaries

    Become aware of the things you will and will not accept, not only from others but from yourself. Overcome the challenges you face, so you can start believing that you deserve the things you want in life. Unpack the reasons why you think you are not entitled to more than the bare minimum. Not all […]

  • You are Strong!

  • Dear 2020,

    We rang you in like any other year. We had our resolutions written down, we had our best outfits on, fireworks were going off; we had all the right ingredients to welcome you. We were eager, anxious, but we were ready for all the greatness the start of a new decade could bring. Sadly, none […]
