Never fear, this isn’t an article about how Hurricane Irma brought out the best and the worst in humanity, or a “hindsight is 20-20” list of what to do and what not to do to prepare for a storm. I mean, I could write all that if you’re dying to read about it, but a… Read More Revelations from Irma**
I’m feeling pretty hardcore when it comes to self care lately. Ye ol’ anxiety has reared its ugly head extra ugly recently – if I’m honest, August was the WORST – so I’m all in. Loving myself and getting zen like a BOSS. Because I’m so over this nonsense. I hesitated to write this post… Read More Baby I’m Worth It.
I’ve mentioned in the past that I’m a big rule follower. I’m comfortable with a black and white version of what is right and wrong, allowed and not allowed, good and bad. Since the world is not black and white; but rather shades of gray… and purple and magenta and enough other flashing bright colors… Read More All the Rules and All the Guilt
I’m flailing a little bit lately in the blog department. Working on getting a little more streamlined and consistent. In the meantime, I think it’s time for a list. A list of my favorite things. Yoga Shocker, right? Bear with me. I love the practice of yoga, but there’s more to it than that. It’s… Read More These are a few of my favorite things.
I don’t know about you, but lately I am pissed. And crabby. And disillusioned. Kind of terrified. Pretty disgusted. Totally over it. Lots of negativity coming from a blog that professes to be “a journal of light and love,” eh? Let’s hash it out. I hate the bad things that are happening in the world.… Read More I love you. No matter what.
When we’re kids, we are constantly asked what we want to “be” when we grow up. Of course, the question is meant to ask how we want to toil for money once we are mature adults contributing to society and paying bills, but that would be overwhelming to a child, right? Asking them to define… Read More Defining success by happiness, kindness, and having a dog.
Ever feel like you have things completely figured out? You are ROCKING this life thing like a boss? Nah, me neither. I don’t know a damn thing. I question every decision I make, and blame myself HARD for every struggle. Do you know that for awhile, I was convinced I had an incurable illness, and… Read More On anger, guilt, fear, and shame. But most of all, faith.
I took a little time away from writing. I took a little time away from a lot of things. Some of them were due to a minor injury: yoga, running. Others were due to a general feeling of overwhelm (partially because I was missing the yoga and running), and that general feeling led to a… Read More A Love Letter to Me, from Me.
I like to look put together. I’m no fashion model, and my hair and makeup routine is pretty efficient, but I have the basics down. Earrings are a must. Hair wrestled into straight lines or pulled back, enough makeup to look even-toned and bright-eyed. Outfit pulled together and un-spilled-upon (at least to start). Ready to… Read More Pulled Together on the Inside
