Hello, lovelies!

Today’s post will be short but sweet. Ever since starting this blog, I tossed around the idea of getting published on other sites, magazines, and other written word platforms. I was unsure of where to start and seriously lacking the confidence to do this. So, I just continued to write posts for my little blog here, continuing to build up momentum and generating ideas (with some bouts of writer’s block in there, too). I have loved having this blog, but I think that there may be something bigger out there for me in terms of writing. I’ve been re-evaluating my life goals lately. With that, a desire to write more and get published was reborn. I thought on some ideas. They say to write what you know about. What do I know about? Therapy. Being a woman. Traveling (to an extent). Yoga (to an extent). Education. Books. Being a vegetarian. Somewhat nutrition. I thought about these things. I stewed. I meditated on the idea of getting published and imagined what that would feel like. And then, on one of my Friday’s off, I wrote something. I wrote it kind of quickly, but taking my time to make sure it fit the submission guidelines. I thought “how cool will it be if they like this and post it?”, also knowing it would be ok if they didn’t. I submitted it. A few days later, they email me saying they accepted it. A week later, it’s posted online. For the whole wide world to see. And that feels good. I feel proud. I feel accomplished. I feel like I’ve taken one step further to my ultimate goal, whatever that goal may be. I haven’t realized what it is yet, but I know I’m on the right path. And that feels incredibly good.

Without further ado, here is the link to my FIRST EVER published article on Elephant Journal. I won’t post it word for word here, as it was written for their website. I would really appreciate it if you would take the time to hop over there and check out what I wrote. It would mean the world to me.

  1. This is awesome! It’s always wonderful when we can find out more about ourselves and what we want out of life so, I’m happy for you, congratulations! I’m going to head over there to read it now!


    1. I also wanted to say that I loved your article! I would’ve commented on there but I don’t have Facebook. Everyone always thinks I’m trying to lose weight and that I’m so healthy because I don’t eat meat, but the truth is I’m just the same as I was when I did eat meat.


      1. Thank you for your sweet words. 🙂 I appreciate them tremendously. I find the same thing – like people think I’m “better” than them or healthier cause I abstain from animal products. But I still struggle with making healthy choices everyday! Glad you were able to relate. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one this happens to! 😉
