True Friendship: An Afternoon In

We often think we have to make extravagant plans to have fun with our friends.  When in reality, we should know someone is not our friend if they always require such things. True friends don't need some well thought out plan every time you hang out. True friends can just "be" with one another.

Veggie Pizza Date Night In: Relationships are Successful When You're Best Friends

I dedicate this post to my best friend. I'm so lucky to have you and call you mine. No more froggies to kiss, I found my prince.

You have a quiet strength about you that makes you wise beyond your years and your tranquil nature balances out my neuroticism. All I can say is: Thank you, best friend.

The Ghost I Call Empathy

I can honestly say I pride myself on being empathetic. I feel other people’s pain as if it were my own. It’s not because I think I’m so perfect, it’s simply because I am able to recognize my privilege. The older I get, the more I feel like it’s my duty to help other women. I sincerely feel like it’s my job to understand the different issues women face.

Be Bright, Be YOU

I dare you to love yourself. I dare you to lift up other women and support them when you can. I dare you to fearlessly compliment others without ulterior motives. After all, someone else’s beauty does not detract from your own. I dare you to, unapologetically, be the best version of yourself. A world where all women are secure, that's the world I want to live in.
