6 Ways to Love Yourself by Taking Care of Your Mind

Part 2 of the Self-Love Series

Welcome back, my loves, for the second part of the Self-Love Series.

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason—that every experience we encounter shapes us in some way and is exactly what we need to experience at a given moment. And I believe that you clicked on this article for a reason. If you’re a close friend of mine, the reason could be that you’re just trying to support my creative project which is this blog (which is so sweet, and I love you all). But maybe you clicked on this article because you feel something lacking. Maybe you’re struggling to love and accept yourself. Maybe you’re looking for more ideas on self-care. Maybe you’re looking for someone to give you permission to love and take care of yourself in a world that can be very externally demanding.

Dust of Gold: A Sampling of Poetry

One day the wind will speak to you.


Hopefully everyone is doing well.  I just got back from my two-week-long trip to India, which was absolutely amazing. There was lots of family time, delicious food cooked by my sweet aunts, buffalo and goats strolling down the streets, and some really heartwarming human connection. Traveling out of the country is always such a privilege, as it provides a great deal of perspective. I just love seeing how, in some countries, things are so different than what I’m used to in my daily life, yet it all works perfectly. It’s also really interesting to see how love and laughter serve as a kind of universal language. But that’s a thought for another post. Continue reading “Dust of Gold: A Sampling of Poetry”

For Those who Struggle with Body Image Issues

When I was eight years old, I thought I was fat.


I hope this first week of 2018 has brought a great deal of joy and motivation to you all. I’m still in India and will be for a little while longer, but I plan on writing about it when I get home.

Since it is the New Year, I’ve been doing a little bit of thinking about New Year’s resolutions. If you read my previous article about my favorite New Year’s practice, you know I’m more prone to come up with intentions rather than resolutions, but, nevertheless, the latter are on my mind.

Sonia’s Favorite Practice for Ushering in the New Year

…and I slowly and ceremoniously burn them.

Hello, and Happy New Year!

Does anybody else feel like 2017 flew by? Sometimes I feel like the older I get, the more quickly the years pass. It’s crazy. I’ve always really liked New Year, though. I love how everyone gets together and celebrates the leaving behind of the past and the raw possibility of the future. It’s so much fun, and honestly, it has always felt pretty spiritual to me.
