Happy Monday everyone!








I turn one year younger this week and this year has been challenging yet incredibly positive.  I learned so much about myself.  Things that I never knew I had in me.  I didn’t realize I was capable of loving with all of my heart.  For the past few years, I’ve built this wall and didn’t realize how liberating it was to love.  To love freely and immensely.  As I experienced love with every part of my being, I also had the pleasure (a little sarcasm there) of experiencing heartbreak.  The feeling of your chest collapsing and the torture of lingering hope.  When certain scents, sights, and songs become mental traps of ‘what if or should I have done that and this’.  Even though the pain was sometimes unbearable, I felt for the first time… alive.  To feel again was the greatest gift of all.

As I embraced my growing soul, I also learned to embrace my womanhood.  Just like love, I didn’t realize how liberating it was to be comfortable in my own skin.  To really be comfortable.  I believe this comfort comes naturally with age, but also by surrounding myself with strong women.  Strong women who are positive, who uplift each other, and who say things like… go braless!  I think the free-the-nipple campaign is really a symbol of uncovering inner confidence.  As I’m on the path of feeling more comfortable in my own skin, I’m incredibly grateful for all of the women in my life who have given me sparks of confidence along the way.

I can’t believe August is almost gone.  I hope you’re having a great week and year so far.  As always, thank you so much for reading and wishing you endless love, peace, and braless breeze ;)
