How to Get in Touch with Your Inner Child

Something many of us lose as we grow into adults is our connection to our inner child. We lose that sense of wonderment, adventure and magic we have as children. With trauma, work, bills, obligations, responsibility… we get swept up in the day to day and forget to dream and play. I know I definitely have.

That’s why I am so unbelievably excited to share this project with you. Lauren Brooke Sanchez (who’s artwork you’ve seen on the site lots) has written a book for both children and adults called “Remembering”. It’s about the journey of our souls back to remembering what’s its like to see magic in the world. The first time I read it I burst into tears – I had no idea how much I actually needed to read it. And of course, being Lauren, the artwork is pure magic. Everything about it makes my heart light up. Here’s a quick video with Lauren talking about what this book is about, what it means to her, and what her intention is.

 

Lauren is running a kickstarter until July 15th. You can help support her dream AND get a piece of this magic for yourself hereI hope you’ll consider donating – this story is important, and something I think this world truly needs.

Buying for Wherever Your Life is At

Aside from the pain, the most frustrating side effect of endo is the how much my body changes. Depending on where I’m at in my cycle, what pain meds I’m on, whether I can walk around or not, my body shape changes drastically. I can be so swollen I look several months pregnant, gaining inches overnight. My

A Brightening Facial Oil for Dry, Dull Skin

My pain meds make my entire body dehydrated, no matter how much water I drink. After a few days my skin gets dry, dull & flaky in the morning. I used to get away with only doing any kind of skin care at night, but alas, no more. I still follow this ritual at night,

Sexual Assualt, Power & Entitlement

It’s also something that is terrifying to speak out about, but today I’m sharing my own story on here. When
