On Nourishing: Caring for Yourself During a Quarantine

  I feel like I have seen dozens of posts like this go up on the past week, so was hesitant to create my own. However, something about several of the blog posts I’ve read regarding self-care over this quarantine don’t sound like self-care to me. They sound like work. They sound overwhelming. So IContinue reading “On Nourishing: Caring for Yourself During a Quarantine”

Sustain: women-led period care & sexual wellness

  Back in October, I had the opportunity to spend an evening with Sustain (the newest addition to the Grove Collaborative marketplace), a sexual wellness company that makes shame-free products for periods, sex and body. I was fascinated by what their founder, Meika Hollender, said about the current industry standard (or lack thereof) in feminineContinue reading “Sustain: women-led period care & sexual wellness”

On Reflection: The Long and Short of It {my hair}

  Short. Light. Dark. Blonde. Long black.   No, it’s not how I take my coffee. It’s what I’ve done to my hair over my 20 plus year history of fighting and eventually succumbing to embracing its natural form. Fiery red. Growing up I always had very long, shiny, baby blonde hair, but when IContinue reading “On Reflection: The Long and Short of It {my hair}”

Dear Molly, Is it Wrong to be Co-Dependent?

Hey. I know you talk about independence and being confident and it’s something that I’ve been struggling with lately. I feel like everyone is talking about how they don’t need a man in their life, but what if I want one? Is it so wrong to want to be in a relationship? I think I’m justContinue reading “Dear Molly, Is it Wrong to be Co-Dependent?”

make believe: a sacred pause

  Last week, I published this piece and ever since can’t help but continually think about taking a sacred pause. Through my day of living in a city of 8.6 million, being packed like a sardine each time I use the subway to migrate around the city, and never quite having a “quiet moment” IContinue reading “make believe: a sacred pause”

Personal Note: a sacred pause

Earlier this week I started fully processing the grief that has been piling up in me over the past year. A combination of losing so many people, who mean so much to me, manifested itself into an anxiety attack, my first in several years. As I came down from the attack a friend gave meContinue reading “Personal Note: a sacred pause”

On Reflection: January 2019 Truths That Are No Longer Mine

  As a society, we engage in a hypocritical game when it comes to growth. We like to mock our previous selves with self-deprecating photos and jokes, mocking the authenticity we used to adore. While simultaneously urging growth and hustle and daily betterment in our present selves. When do the scales tip? When does theContinue reading “On Reflection: January 2019 Truths That Are No Longer Mine”

On Why: Learning to Love Your Likeability

  “When you stand for nothing, you fall for everything.” One of my favorite quotes and believed to be said by Alexander Hamilton (but that detail has blurred since the 18th-century). I always find it remarkable how someone living so long ago, in such a different way could have said something that still profoundly resonatesContinue reading “On Why: Learning to Love Your Likeability”

Dear Molly, Why Her and Not Me?

I’m wondering if you have advice on something…I just want to know, how to get over feeling “why her and not me” when it comes to guys. It just makes me feel not good enough 😦 Like if a guy is totally capable of treating you the way you secretly want to but chooses notContinue reading “Dear Molly, Why Her and Not Me?”
