My Journey with Mental Illness

by candy barone May 28, 2023

My mom put herself in the hospital when I was 15. She wanted to commit suicide.

 

I found this out only by cleaning her room one day, as I came across her journal. Now, I am not normally one to snoop. In fact, I am a rather private person, yet, something compelled me to lift the spiral notebook out from her nightstand drawer and take a look...

My Ongoing Obsession with Books

by candy barone May 13, 2023

A little secret about me … one of my love languages is books. I am being totally serious. I absolutely LOVE books. Always have. I am an avid reader and a voracious learner, and I can never seem to read enough books.

 

In fact, I found myself the other day, when I dropped off an Amazon return to UPS, stopping into Half Price Books on...

A Double-Edged Sword: Living on Both Sides of the Blade

by candy barone Apr 19, 2023

There is this really interesting dichotomy we find ourselves bumping up against throughout all aspects of our lives …

 

You see, at our deepest level, we all crave to be seen for who we are. I mean, really seen. We seek that person or people who will really see us, really hear us, and really love us for who we truly are … the...

Book Review: "Fast Like a Girl" by Dr. Mindy Pelz

by candy barone Apr 12, 2023

This past year has found me doing a LOT of research on the subject of menopause, the mighty “m” word, as this journey I have found myself on has truly kicked my ass.

 

Perhaps, you can relate?

 

That being said I found myself, a couple of years ago, listening to an episode on LeAnn Rimes’ podcast, Wholly Human (which...

“Wait, what is Candy talking about?” you might be asking yourself right now.

 

Well, let me tell you … I’m talking about the mighty “M” word.

New Year ... Same You, Real You & More Aligned AF You

by candy barone Jan 03, 2023

“New Year, New You” … ugh, that expression drives me nuts, In fact, all the hype around the New Year makes me absolutely crazy, to be perfectly honest.

 

It’s like we pretend we have this arbitrary switch that we are suppose to turn on that is going to change everything.

 

And, then we wonder why we end up...

Becoming Aligned As F*ck

by candy barone Sep 18, 2022

I’m not logical.

 

In fact, some would even call me bat-shit crazy.

 

I don’t make logical decisions. Often times they seem radical, out there, or even ridiculous.

 

I am not linear.

I am here to “bend time” and take dynamic, quantum leaps.

 

To be a tree-shaker, a table-flipper, a rebel, and a light...

What Going Off-the-Grid Gifted Me

by candy barone Sep 15, 2022

As I mentioned in a previous post, I took an unplanned, and much needed, sabbatical this summer. What started out as a 9-day excursion to the mountains, and some time with some beloved friends, turned into going completely “dark” for more than two months.

 

And, when I say “dark” … I mean fully unplugged. Off...
