The Stories

It takes guts to put it all out there. But the payoff can be incredible. These stories are written by women who are owning their shit and who are not afraid to bare it all. Because they know that the upside of being real, is being loved and accepted for who they truly are. They no longer feel alone and ashamed of their messy lives, and they are generous enough to share it with you. Their willingness to share with honesty and vulnerability brings connection and belonging, which ultimately leads to fulfillment and happy hearts. And isn’t that what we’re all after?

My guests and contributors put themselves out there to help foster a movement to uplift and connect women through real life experiences. Their stories are not to be criticized or judged in any way. If you don’t resonate with a story, please move on quietly without comment. But if you do, please let your sisters know! xo Karm

No One Told Me This Could Happen

No One Told Me This Could Happen
