No one is keeping a tally. So why am I?

By Christy Uffelman   I’ve been battling my inner Martyr lately and losing. She shows up whenever I get stuck in the tiresome cycle of Overdo. Resent. Repeat. Whenever I say yes instead of no.

Learning to #OwnIt

By Christy Uffelman “No one likes a girl who brags.” So says the voice in my head. I don’t know about you, but I learned a long time ago that when we talk about how fabulous we are at something, well, that makes others feel ‘less than’. So we hold back, we censor, we deflect.
