Good morning, birthday girl. You were on my heart late last night so I followed the love and wrote to you. And yes, I am crying already. I hope that as you read this, you find some words here and hold them close as you move throughout today.
Believe it or not, I've always had a hard time communicating on a vulnerable level. I have no problem expressing myself in my songwriting or while up on stage. I easily vent about my frustrations or gossip about the latest happenings when sitting down with a friend. Lord knows I can literally talk the paint... Continue Reading →
It's a Monday and it's November 1st. For whatever reason, kicking off a new month at the top of the week has always held significance for me. It's kind of like New Year's or a birthday - a reset, if you will. A chance to pay attention and not get stuck saying (once again), "Man,... Continue Reading →
Confessions from a literal “bleeding heart”. It’s been hard to share pretty posts when life doesn’t feel pretty right now. So consequently, I’ve been relatively quiet on all fronts for a couple weeks now. Which is less than ideal when one has just released their first new music in a year - with more releases...

Daily meditations, yoga stretches, long walks, a good book - I do these things to quiet my thoughts and center. But now, I'm being asked to hold a magnifying glass over my thoughts and memories every morning, and then re-center myself from where ever the chapter/exercise took me? And I'm doing this voluntarily? Correct.
Well, this is a big week. A big week on many levels. I'm experiencing all kinds of feels. But more on that later. It's been a quite awhile since I've written and posted a blog, and I feel like I should catch you up on the happenings... A year ago today, I was preparing to... Continue Reading →
I'll start this post off with a simple "Thank you" to whoever is reading this. Whether it's been a random call or text to say Hi, a congratulations on my engagement, leaving a comment on a video I posted, or coming up to me after a show... I'm thankful (and still socially awkward with compliments)... Continue Reading →
So, for the past few weeks, I've been trying to commit to "mental health mornings" to start my day. Aside from waking up at the ass-crack of dawn to work out, I've been trying my best to take advantage of these early morning rises to "check in" with myself too. So after our work-out, and...

It's a weird thing. I have literally thought to myself and/or said out loud to others, "I really feel like blogging" and yet... nothing. For quite awhile now. That is always a huge indicator for me. I write when I have something that needs to be said. When the desire to write my heart, read... Continue Reading →
http://www.RachelWilliamsOnline.com I don't know when it happened exactly. I just know it happened. It wasn't overnight. It wasn't one catastrophic event. It wasn't someone's words that lingered. It wasn't one specific loss that did me in. So I guess it was an endless series of things...life...that didn't seem all that noticeable at the time but "out of nowhere",... Continue Reading →
