Do you remember back in March when the world turned upside down? What am I saying, of course you do. I do, too.
Something I specifically remember from that month, was the flood of the messages I got from people reaching out to me to ask how to practice self-love, how to enjoy spending time being alone, how to find joy in the ‘simple things’, and so much more.
They had seen me doing it for so many years, and all of a sudden it felt like they were forced into a lifestyle they weren’t ready for.
Since then, I’ve seen a lot of people start living in new ways. Using their windows for art displays, getting dressed up for ‘no reason’, writing messages in sidewalk chalk to remind themselves as much as anyone who sees it that there is beauty still like there always was.
I’ve also seen people continue to make vows that they’ve been “given the gift of time”, “going to do the thing”, “start living”, and here we are 8 months later and not much has changed. In fact, it might feel worse. The weight might feel even heavier.
As I’m writing this, “Harmony Hall” by Vampire Weekend started playing through my speakers.
Ezra sang, “I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die”.
I think we can feel that pretty fucking hard right now.
So if you aren’t happy with how you’re living, what are you going to do about it?
You can’t control what the government is doing. Whether people are or aren’t wearing something or obeying things. You can’t control anyone else besides you, your mindset, and perspective.
So are you going to take responsibility? Are you going to say that you are, in fact, the leader and controller of your mindset, perspective, and merriment? Or are you going to keep saying, “Maybe tomorrow”?
As I write this, I’m reminded of another song by Frank Turner. He says, “If we’re stuck on this ship and it’s sinking, then we might as well have a parade”.
The ship is life, Babe. We have a finite amount of time to have a time, and it’s up to us if we’re going to make it a good one.
I want to help you make it a good one.
If it feels out of your control right now, if you feel hopeless, helpless, and lost, you aren’t alone.
Not only is so much of the world feeling the same way, but I felt like that for about a decade. If I can go from someone who was the poster child for self-loathing, harm, dysmorphia, disordered feeling, thinking, eating, consuming, living… then you can, too.
It’s always possible, and because I was there, I am with you now. I am you, and I never stopped. I just know a little bit different than I used to.
What would it feel like ANY or ALL of these parts of your life were full of Merriment?
- Even CHORES!
I want to invite you to join me on a magical journey of Merriment.
I want to hold your hand, and we will fly away on these balloons into the sky.
How will we do it?
We will start with Uncustomary Babes.
Starting December 1st, the theme of the group will be Merriment ALL MONTH LONG.
Why do we only talk about Merriment for Christmas when all most people want is to be happy YEAR LONG?
Let’s talk about JOY! ECSTATIC, EXUBERANT, ELATED, MERRIMENT!
I will be giving you tools, every single day, to explore, reprogram, and integrate MERRIMENT into YOUR every day life.
On Instagram I asked if you could use more joy in your life. 100% of people said YES.
If you say yes, I invite you to come on into a magical, colorful, whimsical, creative, supportive world of Uncustomary Babes.
It’s ever-expanding, all-inclusive, non-stop fun, and also challenging because I want you to grow!

T wasn’t sure she could afford the price last month. She decided it was important for her personal evolution and made it happen for herself. In the past month, this is what has happened in her life.
