What a year, 2017 was intense and full of self-discovery, much of which was spent testing out different approaches to eating, nose in a self-help book, while working out. I kept trying to figure my life out: how to be healthier, digging deeper, defining my values, understanding my wants.  After nine months hot out of […]

I love finding new ways to look at the same old stuff. By throwing things into the air and seeing where everything lands I give myself the space to explore, expand, and further know my own truth. The concept of being what I want to see in the world came from this exploration and it […]

Why am I, Jenell Riesner, a complete and total Badass? When we first challenged ourselves to write a post about being a badass, the first thought that popped into my head was, “How am I going to write a blog post about being a badass when half the time I don’t feel like one?”. I […]

One of the first things I do when I leave for vacation is turn off my push email notifications on my phone. It’s an exhilarating feeling!

Most days we wake up, look in the mirror, and nitpick all the things we wish were different about our bodies. It’s not from a place of hate; there are a lot of things to be proud of. That said, most days we aspire for change in how we look in some way or another. […]

This quote by Wayne Gretsky changed my life. I spent most of my early years living out LOUD, being me, doing what I wanted, and not worrying an ounce about what others thought of me. If I wanted something, I truly believed it was mine to achieve. I could get it and I went for […]

I recently read Jen Sincero’s You’re A Badass (http://www.jensincero.com/store/). I first heard of the book after a tea date with a friend who said that it had changed her life.
