As my year in Korea is in its final week, I’ve been in a pretty heavy period of reflection. My new blog is up and all about what I’ve learned in #theyearofdani
I’ve grown this year more than I could have imagined. I’ve learned more about myself and my needs and desires and standards. That it’s okay to be alone. That adulting can be fucking hard. That loving myself is the biggest commitment I’ll ever make.
Link in my bio for the full blog. Lots of love, friends. #imready #transformation #growth #recovery #blog
I'm definitely guilty of being a "kinda" person. Something I need to look at. Check this video out on YouTube if you have not seen this!!
Completed my first 50-50 @liift4
workout. Dayummmm. That was hard. This at-home 8-week transformation is going to be AMAZING!!! 💪🏼🏋🏼♀️🤟🏼
Swoon. Typical feeling when i read @nayyirah.waheed.
It’s mind-blowing to me how much time i spent growing up wishing i wasn’t me. Wishing my quirks & idiosyncrasies were different ones, ones more like hers. Why couldn’t i be outspoken like her? I hoped that i could somehow grow out of being highly sensitive & deeply feeling. Interestingly, these qualities have only gotten stronger as I’ve grown up, and especially since getting sober.
We all have qualities that make us unique and that’s what makes us beautiful of course. And yet so many of us are quick to write off & give away our “weirdness.”
Your “weirdness” is the best thing about you. I promise.
🐚🦀🦐❤Take me back to my happy place please!!! I live NEAR the beach but it's been over 10 years since I've lived in a beach town and it's long over due!! I can't wait to start officially looking for places with my baybuh!!! Whoooooooo!!!!
Stepping over hump day like...
Trying something different and it not working out the first time does not make you a failure.
Making a decision to enter recovery and then have a relapse does not make you a failure.
You only really fail when you quit trying to be who you want to be.
Don’t give up because anything is possible. ——
Leave me your thoughts 👇
, you’re a babe. Traveling for work can be equal parts exciting and exhausting. I miss this guy and our fur baby. I love new cities but I also love our little southern town and our sweet community. Anxious to be home tomorrow. Watch out, Steve, monster bear hug headed your way.

The name of the game: one day at a time! Together we can do this, if you need support and help it’s here for you!
Temptation is a 😈bitch! But I got the real man ✝️GOD watching and reminding me I’ve done the same mistake 2 2 2 many mofo times! #soberissexy #signs #salud
Since I’ve been working weekends I have barely gotten anytime to be in the sun. Since I recently just started working out I’ve found it hard to want to go to the gym on my actual days off it’s much easier to hit the gym and the tanning booth after work. So my new routine (what I’m trying to make my new routine 🙈) is to do all the at home stuff and appts during my days off and then before th evening go for a walk on a beautiful trail around west wood lake and then get some natural sun tanning happening! So far, it’s been great and I’ve had some amazing company too @drgnflwr
The best thing about Yoga is that you can take it to wherever you feel at home. And sometimes that’s by the pool in the middle of the day.
Where’s your favorite place to practice alone?
Sometimes to change the world, you first have to change yourself. #wednesdaywisdom
All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone. - Blaise Pascal
I haven't stopped thinking about this quote all day. Do you think you'd be able to spend 30 minutes in a room by yourself with no distraction - just you and your thoughts? I'm noticing more and more just how desperate we all are for distraction.
We complain about technology, social media, emails etc - but do we know how to be with ourselves without those things? Anyhow, my mind's just doing some whirling and as I still have a little while longer on this bus - I thought I'd place this quote here.
I'm BIG on solitude but I'm learning that the deep solitude I want to attain is much more profound and will require a lot more inner work (not just putting my phone on flight mode for 3hrs).
If you can recommend any practices/books/podcasts/watchable stuff on Solitude - please share! Love💚
Making art is vulnerable. Asking for help is vulnerable. Changing and bettering yourself is vulnerable. Letting go is vulnerable. Evolving into the person you were always meant to be (and navigating the growing pains that come with transformation) is vulnerable.
Sometimes it’s easy to equate vulnerability with weakness, but it’s quite the opposite. Vulnerability is strength. Vulnerability is beauty. Vulnerability is power.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is to learn from your mistakes and to move forward #TuesdayThoughts
Cause it's a beautiful night, we're looking for something dumb to do
Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you
Is it the look in your eyes or is it this dancing juice
Who cares baby, I think I wanna marry you ♥️
I like the way your brain works, I like the way you try
To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tired
I like the way you turn me inside and out
I like the way you turn
I like the way your brain works
I like the way your brain works
When was the last time, you did something for the first time? 🎶🤙
There just may be a runner in me yet! 🦄
Tell me are you badfish too 🐠
🎶 You and me going fishing in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the full moon light
We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
Just movin' slow 🎣
