5 Things to Tell Yourself When Feeling Down

5 Things to Tell Yourself When You're Feeling Down

There is something very powerful behind the words “I am.” Whenever you say to yourself “I am…,” what follows is influential; whatever follows is an affirmation, something you eventually begin to believe in.

On Overcoming Fear + Embracing Change

On Overcoming Fear + Embracing Change In life, there are small things we’re afraid of (spiders, anyone?) bigger things we’re afraid of (that’d be thalassophobia for me, thanks), and those really, really big things we’re afraid of- like making a significant lifestyle change or staring failure right in its face. Of course, there’s the actual fear- a natural instinct that’s part of our survival mechanism which protects us from danger- we kinda need that one to stick around. There’s also a…
