Today we’re talking about something that’s been on my mind awhile—what it means to be spiritual and why I think so many women, especially my fellow sassy women, haven’t felt comfortable in this space.

I want to keep that side of me while embracing vulnerability. I can do both and so can you if this is a part of you that you’re not ready to let go of either.
