Screw it, I'm taking a nap!

The never-ending to-do ist getting you down? Are you like me? When life gets overwhelming you just want to crawl in a hole and hope it all goes away? Well, it doesn't have to be that way!! Make some time for yourself and learn how to fill yourself up in a physically, emotionally and healthy way. No, I don’t mean watch Netflix or take a really long nap. I mean find something that really fuels you! Focusing on your health, exercise, meditation, counseling, community, working (in or outside of the home), clothing yourself with confidence or whatever it is that makes you excited and happy type of fill up!

That's why we have created Honest Talk International, a group for women to feel loved, supported and encouraged all year round, not just one day a year!
