I’ve debated starting a blog for several reasons. For one, I used to think blogging was only for cookbook recipes, fashion tips, photography, or super trendy mom blogs. And two, being vulnerable with your thoughts on social media is just plain scaryyy. But I’ve come to realize that a blog can be for anyone with a passion for sharing feelings, stories, ideas and opinions. I mean, I once read an article about why cats will one day rule the world (she had a good point) and if someone had the confidence and creativity to publish such an article, then I can too.

After reading a quote by the great Brene Brown- “The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born from our creativity.” I was inspired to finally put my thoughts into words.

Mental health, spirituality, empowerment, compassion, self-care, book recommendations (and of course, cats and plants) are all topics that spark my creativity and hopefully will be able to give a unique contribution to others.

With that being said, I hope you follow along with Sincerely XOXO: the art of being creative, spiritual + human.
