Dear Starfish Diaries

Welcome to Starfish Diaries!

Da Da dummmmmm…..I’m super excited to FINALLY show you my new logo, created by the fabulous artist of PS Enjoy Your Life.  Whether you’ve been reading for awhile (THANK YOU!) or you’re just joining me (WELCOME!), I’d like to take this opportunity to talk a little bit about why I’m blogging and what you can expect from this site.

But First…..here it is!!

I’m obsessed.  It’s fun and colorful and uplifting….all of the things I want to you to feel when you stop by this page.  I hope you love it too!

Speaking of the things I want you to feel, here’s my spiel.

I’ve spent a lot of my life feeling afraid, and not good enough.  (For what, for who?  Couldn’t even tell ya.)  I’ve been on a journey for the past few years that has NOT been without its peaks and looow valleys, toward figuring out who the heck I am, and loving the bajeesus out of that person.  It’s been hard, but it’s been exciting, and it’s far from over. My hope is that if you are going through any kind of transition, or a similar journey of self-discovery, that you’ll read some of what I have to say and get that, “OMG me toooo!” feeling.  The one that makes you feel less alone, less abnormal, and filled with hope.  I spent a lot of time searching for inspiring books, blogs, TV shows, etc, looking for words that resonated, and every time I stumbled upon something that clicked it healed a little part of my soul.

There are a handful of topics that I could talk about for days, and you’ll see them appear here frequently.  Those are mental health (shout out to my anxiety peeps!), veganism (I will never lecture you, cross my heart), yoga (namaste), and general self-care and positivity.  Even if you’re a fully sane (lucky duck), meat eating, downward-dog hating couch potato, I really do think you’ll find something good here.  Even if it’s just a laugh- I mean, I do mention toots occasionally, and are they ever NOT funny?  Nah.

I won’t lie and say that this is a completely selfless endeavor- far from it!  Writing and sharing has been extremely liberating- therapeutic, even!  And hey, if someday an agent stops by and wants to pay me a bazillion dollars to write a book…so be it.  #agirlcandream

I do hope to create a community of positive, supportive people who lift each other up, and, more importantly, learn to lift up their fabulous selves.  Be your own biggest fan.

If you’re just tuning in, I’d be beyond thrilled to hear from you- check out some old posts- there are fun, lighthearted lists like this, there are more personal posts like this, and if you want to hop on board the ol’ clean eating ship I’m trying to keep afloat, check it here.  Oh, and if you’re wondering if this blog thang is only for kids these days, check out this.  You can follow along by subscribing via email, or follow me on social media: Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Whether or not you decide to check back in from time to time (I really hope you do), I think you are just the bees knees for stopping by.  And because I AM obsessed with the new logo, here it is again:
