LOVE, UNPACKED

"I didn’t backpack through the wilderness, travel the world, sell all of my belongings, join a nudist survival colony, or anything quite so dramatic. But who says you have to quit your life and start a new one to go on an epic adventure? The greatest quest of your existence lies in an overflowing bag at your feet, waiting for you to unlock its mysteries and treasures."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I spent the majority of my life trying to shrink myself in hopes that I may fit into the impossible mold society kept trying to shove me into. I felt like I needed to be less loud, less excited, less emotional, less weight, less me.
One day, I realized that it is my job as a woman to command the space I am in rather than try to dissolve in it and when I stopped trying to absorb the real me, I became keenly aware that me as I am, and you as you are, is exactly how we should be. So here, in this space, we celebrate the truth.
The good, the bad, the ugly, the sacred, the unnerving, the traumatic, the unthinkable⏤we talk about real things here and most of the time, we have fun doing it. Sex, intimacy, stress, anxiety, PTSD, rape, body issues, self-confidence, trials of parenting, trials of adulting, the outrageous nonsense we’ve been taught our entire lives, and so on.
I believe in connections. Deep, meaningful, true connections. We can talk about hard things and do hard things and also sometimes laugh until we cry or cry until we can't help but laugh. I hope you’ll stick around for some great conversation, and I hope you’ll join me in being courageous enough to be vulnerable in a world that tells us we must always have a filter on.
