Hi, I’m Julie. Last year, I began publishing essays about my traumatic childhood, obsessive-compulsive perfectionism, and the painful journey that followed. I wasn’t sure anyone would read them, but the thought of connecting with even one person made it feel worthwhile.
Since then, Flow has become a communal spot for those seeking a life of peace + calm — some who’ve also endured trauma and its accompanied side effects.
It turns out, treading dysfunctional waters can be an ironic gift. Although controlling our outsides is not the cure for healing our insides, creating external balance can help diffuse our inner chaos.
My boys describe Flow as my little piece of real estate, an expressive corner of the world where I can connect without it asking me to make it a sandwich. Yes. It. Is. But, it’s also a beautiful hive where we can center, share feel-good design, fashion, and healthful living inspiration, and attain calm — together.
So, thank you for being here. For reading and absorbing the karmic goodness within each post. I hope sharing my lessons-learned and tips + tricks will help enhance your path to flow, too. –xo

None of those other things makes a difference. Love is the strongest thing in the world, you know. Nothing can touch it. Nothing comes close. If we love each other we’re safe from it all. Love is the biggest thing there is.• David GUTERSON, SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS
