Hi! I’m a Toronto-based writer / journalling enthusiast / tarot reader who hails from Brantford, Ontario, but has called Toronto home for 10 years. Where I feel (and have always felt) most at home though, is in writing.
I’m a big fan of keeping a journal practice, and more generally, using creativity as self-care. I write about wellness, but I’m more interested in exploring what it actually means to live well.
Wellness is a really complex topic, especially for women. But that’s why I love writing about it. There’s this idea that women aren’t “supposed” to put themselves first, but when we don’t, nothing works. We suffer and the people we care for suffer.
Self-care is a radical act because it’s about saying my body, my intuition, is telling me to do something and I’m going to do it. It’s a radical act because it goes against everything we’ve been conditioned to believe.
Actively engaging in self-care is empowering. If I want to be part of a social structure that treats all women like what they do, need, and want matters, I have to recognize what I do, need and want, matters, in my own life. I read tarot and journal because they always bring me back to the place of knowing that I know what’s best for me. That I can trust myself! I want everyone around me to have access to that place in them.
Dig? Let a girl read ya cards.
Peep what I have to say on my blog where I post about dreams and tarot and other fun things that catch my fancy.
Thanks for reading. See you soon!
