When my brain starts spiraling at a million miles per minute, I find it helpful to zoom out and remind myself that I am still at the beginning of my story. Prologues is a place to get comfortable with not having everything figured out, but still trusting in the beauty to come. Whether we’re talking about mental health, relationships, wellness, or just the chaos of being in your 20s, I hope these next moments are your reminder to take life as it comes.

6. I'm Coming Out of a Depressive Episode!! (I Hope) | Tips for Getting Out of a Funk

Well, I'm either getting better, or this is a brief break. I'll take it either way.

Today I talk about a realization I had last week: I've actually been......really depressed lately. Sometimes I'm so focused on getting through each day that it takes a lightbulb moment for me to realize that things have gotten bad again - and once I do, I have to start to pull myself out of it. This episode is all about my actionable tips for getting out of a funk. I'm only sharing what has *actually* worked for me.

I also share the two books I read last week and a piece of exciting life news!

5. How To Not Be Lonely When You're Alone | Living Alone & Being Your Own Best Friend

"If you're lonely when you're alone, you are in bad company." - Jean-Paul Sartre

In this episode I talk all about my recent journey of living alone while my husband and I are long distance. I discuss my introverted nature and the way being alone has sometimes not been by choice - and I also talk about how freeing it is to embrace yourself as your own best friend and look forward to alone time. This episode is all about becoming the best company you could possibly have.
