Diminishing Joy to Avoid Pain | Salt + Sunshine Series

My jaw DROPPED reading this part of the book. I couldn’t believe this concept was in front of my eyes typed out. (It starts on page 80) Other people in the world must do this and over a million people have read this book so I’m willing to bet it was a HUGE sigh of…

Don’t Walk, Run From Negativity | Salt & Sunshine Series

It’s not often I pop into this series but I love it because it’s dedicated to staying real and positive. So many people have their demons, have had horrible life experiences and feel more of a natural pull toward darkness, negativity, complaining and generally just not liking anyone because it’s easier for them to be mad….

Regrets | Salt & Sunshine Series

This is a tough one for me. But in my heart, I know it is so relatable for everyone. Regret is a powerful emotion. It’s consuming, it’s obsessive, it’s cruel, it’s justified. Regret is hard, but if you flip it on it’s back, you will truly see that regret is a lesson. I’ve tried to figure out…

Grocery Store Perspective | Salt & Sunshine Series

Yesterday, I was at the tail end of a nine day streak of hosting a workshop, moving to a new home, shooting two weddings out of town and shooting five sessions. Oh, and I also have three daughters four and under 🙂 I was at the store with an overflowing grocery cart to catch up…

Goal Amnesia | Salt + Sunshine Series

Have you ever wanted SO badly to reach a goal, a number, a figure, an amount of money..that you just become fixated and stressed beyond recognition? You project this anxiousness by yelling at someone you love, being impatient, acting panicky. Everything is a big deal all of sudden, even if it’s really not. It’s not some…

You’re Not Beyond Repair | Salt & Sunshine Series

I think a lot of us who have negative pasts full of dark corners and very undesirable memories tend to continue over and over shaming and punishing ourselves…as if we are never to be redeemed or forgiven for these mistakes that we made, incidents that happened to us and poor decisions we chose to repeat along…

Jealousy + Feeling Light | Salt & Sunshine Series

This is a toughie. Jealousy is an emotion, but it’s also an instinct that’s been around since the beginning of time, back to when it came down to survival. Like a lot of instincts, however, we have the choice to evolve from it and I am making a case today to prove to you that…

Why Are You Trying So Hard? | Salt + Sunshine Series

The Salt + Sunshine Series is meant to take a negative and turn it into a positive 🙂 Some of us are just huge sensitive Sallys…and if you’re one of those kind of gals, let’s unite today over this post. It’s funny how strong I’ve become in being resilient toward rough situations and people that have…

Paychecks + Valentines | Salt & Sunshine Series

I used to think that a successful holiday meant BIG presents, flashy, WOW-I-can’t-believe-you-bought-me-a-car/diamonds/etc … in order to be a good holiday. I thought if I could nail the holidays and do things that looked like perfection on the outside, the inside of me would feel better..but it’s NOT how it goes. I know this now…

It’s been a hot minute since I visited this blog series! With the welcoming of wedding season and the welcoming of this new pregnancy…add on some sessions and mentoring and appointments in between, I’ve felt so EXCITED but slightly overwhelmed!
