My Inner Voice

I’ve touched on this subject before about how important (especially for women) it is to listen to your inner voice, your intuition, your gut feeling. You know that still, small voice inside that exists to help guide and direct your life. This voice is wiser, kinder, and more intelligent than the whiny, negative voice that … Read more

The Blended And Extended Family

The blended and extended family seems to be the norm today. When I grew up, it was something people barely spoke about. For me, this was all I knew.

People feel teenagers are apathetic, disconnected and sometimes downright rude. After teaching for 40 years what I have observed is kids are kids. They learn from their parents and from others around them. If they are allowed to do what they want whenever they want, they do not learn the concepts of deadlines, respect, and … Read more

I Don’t Diet

My name is Liz, and I am 24. I am an artist and a maker; a sister and a daughter; the joker and comedic relief; a feminist and an ally; a body positive example and a fat activist; but maybe one of the most important parts of my identity, is I don’t diet. Yep, that’s … Read more
