Hi, I’m Liz, and I am SO THRILLED that you are here!  Welcome to the Starfish Diaries, where I am unabashedly sharing my journey of love and light, and I hope very much to share the road with you!  I’ve named this blog after The Starfish Story which touched me deeply when I first heard it years ago.

I’m on a mission to remind myself and anyone who will join me to love our damn selves every day, to forgive ourselves for our flaws and mistakes, and to laugh a lot along the way.

A little about little ol’ me…

I’m passionate about a handful of topics, and hope to share my ever-growing knowledge with you here.  I have lived with anxiety for most of my life, and find that talking about mental health openly and honestly is beneficial to all of us.  Since I started practicing yoga and taking better care of myself physically, I’ve found that my anxiety is much better managed, and I’m excited to share my experiences in the hope that it will inspire you to do the same.

I also ascribe to a vegan lifestyle, and loooove to share that knowledge with the world.  Veganism isn’t as hard/scary/weird/restrictive as you think!  And every little drop of awareness gets us closer to a kinder, healthier planet.  I’m happy to answer questions, share my experiences, and monkey around with some fun recipes here in the hopes that we can at least inspire conversation.

In general, I’m on a path to mental and physical wellness, and I’m taking you with me!  Learn with me, grow with me, and laugh with me- that’s all I ask of you.

If you’d like to connect more personally, I’m totally down with that.  You can reach me using the form below, and I pinky swear to respond.  Just to give you a snapshot, I live in Tampa, Florida, with my wonderful husband, adorable chocolate lab, and 2 mischievous rescue kitties.  We’re from chilly upstate NY, so we spend as much time as possible outdoors, and will never get tired of palm trees.

I am excited for this little project of mine to grow, and to share the self-love, self-improvement, self-esteem highs with anyone looking for a boost.  To learn more about my purpose here, check out this post.

I’d be thrilled if you’d subscribe via email (using the form to the right) to stay up to date with new posts, and to drop me a line anytime.

Thank you for showing up, you are the bomb.
