While nursing a glass of red at a post work VC event, my eyes scanned the room and it was quite clear that the numbers spoke for themselves, likely a 3:1 or maybe even 4:1, men: women ratio. It’s only been in recent years that I’ve become comfortable in such […]

When You Shift, He Shifts

It’s no secret that I’ve been separated for a very long time now. In the beginning of this year, things with my ex weren’t great (to say the least). As we continued with our parental and financial negotiations, our relationship hit an all time low, and I was beside myself as I struggled and fought with a man I once really, really loved. It’s baffling how love can turn into something that feels so much like hate—even when you know it’s not hate and never will be.

I Left My Guilt, Shame, and Fear Behind

I went to bed endlessly focussed on my next move, and as I tossed and turned, the irony hit me like a ton of bricks: I couldn’t sleep because of the weight of the decision, but I really needed to sleep on it.

A friend of mine asked me to share all of my wonderful experiences I’ve had so far, so without further ado, here’s a list of my favs

What would you do if you knew no one was watching?

Sitting amidst 380 people in a gigantic camp theatre nestled in Rockhill, New York, I fought back the endless stream of tears that were burning the back of my throat. (All I had to do was say go.) Up there on the stage was one of my favourite humans, Jonathan Fields, reading a chapter from his new book, How to Live a Good Life. I felt like he was talking directly to me. At that moment, the room ceased to exist. Here was his invitation to me:
