Happy Valentine's Day.

Three little words ...

For some, today is a day to celebrate a powerful connection with another who elevates and enhances your life. A partner, who sees you, gets you, and chooses to share life's every day moments with you. It's that recognition of feeling love's embrace all around you.

How I Learned to Say YES to Myself

by candy barone Nov 03, 2020

I spent years trying to be what everyone thought I should be ... in fact, I lived a good portion of my life trying to fit into a certain box, trying to be something I wasn't.

That is ... until I hit rock bottom. 

I was successful. I was living the corporate dream and climbing the ladder to MORE ... more recognition, more...

My Take on Meditation & Mindfulness

by candy barone Oct 18, 2020

Sitting still has always been really hard for me. Just ask my mom. Lol!

I've struggle with everything from slow flow types of yoga to traditional forms of meditation. I actually used to even shame myself for not "getting it right" when I would try these types of classes.

Learning to Love My Body

by candy barone Oct 07, 2020
I’ve hated this body. I’ve punished this body and robbed it of love. I’ve pushed this body too hard to the point of exhaustion, where I’ve caused it unnecessary harm.
 
I’ve spent a long time loathing and despising this body. I wasn’t shaped like the other girls. I had more curves, more muscle. I...

I Never Knew I Could Go Both Ways ...

by candy barone Jan 03, 2020

It’s interesting ... I grew up being told and believing that I was an extreme extrovert. In fact, every profile tool said the same. I carried this label, this programming, with me my entire life and allowed it to define me, my actions, my truths, and my way of being in the world.

As a result, I couldn’t understand how I would often...

A Different Father's Day Celebration

you empowered strong Jun 16, 2019

Today is always a weird day for me. My dad passed away 9 years ago this very weekend. However, I didn’t talk to him for 15 years prior. To say I had a difficult relationship with my father is a mild understatement. It was the epitome of challenging, and often times extremely abusive, (physically, mentally and emotionally). I cut my father...
