Exciting News!

I started this blog nearly a year ago. It has been an incredible journey engaging with you in this amazing, supportive community. I’ve learned so much from you all such as transparency, forgiveness, self love, and overcoming doubt.

I am excited to share that I launched my own YouTube channel. It’s something that has been on my heart since 2012. I am very passionate about my love for television, my love and disdain for characters and what keeps me invested in long-running series like Grey’s Anatomy.

I am very excited to discuss topics I’m passionate about and share lessons I’ve learned on both platforms. Most importantly, I get to connect with you on a more personal level.

Thank you for continuing this journey with me. I am forever grateful.

My Favorite Throwbacks: Part 1

There’s nothing like pure nostalgia. It reminds you of the good ole days when you had little to no responsibilities. You felt like you had all the time in the world.

Life was easier when there wasn’t a goddamn pandemic.

Last Saturday afternoon, I pulled out my exercise step, threw on a long t-shirt and a pair of old shorts from 2008, and listened to my favorite throwbacks while doing some much-needed step aerobics.

I couldn’t help but smile. I wasn’t thinking about my anxiety nor my frustration with a family member. I was enjoying a 60-minute party.

If you’re experiencing feelings of loneliness and anxiety during quarantine, I highly recommend listening to your favorite throwback songs. It can motivate you in more ways than one.

For more resources on the positive influences nostalgia can bring to your self care routine, check out this Shine article.
