Mixtape: Get Through.

mixtape for getting through tough feelings


I wasn’t going to share this playlist.

It isn’t about being positive in the wake of the hard shit.

It isn’t about turning your face to the sun when all you want to do is weep.

It’s about getting through by actually feeling what you’re feeling.

Not cramming it down. Not ignoring it. Not running away from it.

Actually feeling it. For a little while.

It’s short for a reason.

And eclectic as fuck…because feelings can take you all over the place.

Many of these songs are about love…it makes a great metaphor, doesn’t it?


Don’t punish yourself for having feelings.

You get to have them. All the feels.

You don’t need to wallow in them.

But you do get to have them.

And then maybe, when you’re ready, let them go.

Mixtape: Windows Down

  This is the face of a girl that just had the most ridiculous dance party with a gaggle of preteen boys in the car next to me. We were stuck in standstill rush hour traffic. The mom driving seemed less than thrilled, but we were laughing our faces off. Those are the best dance… Continue Reading

Mixtape: Emerging Spring

  I talk a bit about the crazymaking time that is spring. All we can do is learn how to deal with the anxiety, the uncertainty, the seasonal sways. The yoga mat has caught some tears. Meditation has been replaced with relaxation. I make it a point to sit in the sun, even when I have shit to do. Especially when… Continue Reading
