About Aspiring roots

Aspiring Roots is my way of putting all of the insights and lessons-learned on my journey with anxiety over the last year in one place. I’ve broken it down by the main pieces of my toolkit, ultimately aspiring to build and feed these core branches of roots: nourishing, self-loving, and healing. These recipes, links, and insights have helped feed a sense of well-being and steadiness within me, and I hope they resonate with you too and allow you to aspire with intention to lay down these roots in your own life.

Nourishing contains recipes that are true to the word’s truest meaning - dishes that I hope not only sustain you, but also better strengthen your body and fuel your personal growth.

Self-loving covers a broad range, but the idea tying it all together is that if it feels right to you - hold yourself to budgeting and setting aside time to support yourself in that way. The main branches of this section are searchable by category: body, sex, home.



Healing is the most personal section of my journey, where I want to share the insights, meditations, and other things that have helped me deal with anxiety. None of us should feel alone when dealing with our unique burdens, and I hope that some of the roots I’ve fed to deal with my anxiety might be helpful for others.

AR at its core is my attempt to share some of the ways I’ve found to nourish the roots that feed my mind and body in all areas of life. I'll be sharing more of my story and lessons-learned from my journey with anxiety and growing up on an avacado orchard and horse ranch to college in Middlebury, Vermont and to my present life in Brooklyn, New York. Whenever discussing the story or lessons-learned of another who wishes to remain anonymous, I refer to them as trusted confidants whose journeys resonate with the spirit of Aspiring Roots: vulnerability, resilience, and growth.
