It’s been awhile, again! Haha. I have had a little time to actually do some work around the house lately, and it feels pretty damn good! I’m usually working about as many hours as my company lets me just to satisfy my greed. But I’ve been doing 40 hour weeks for a month or so & it has been really nice. I have more chores & items on my to do list than I can count, but I finally had to take a break from work to get some work done at home. Even one small chore a day cuts into the lust and it feels ...

I'm so incredibly grateful for the friends in my life who are able to give me honest (loving) perspective. As I go on this journey through life, I am realizing how much I appreciate my heart-centered circle of influence. They bring so much insight, depth and joy to my life. I can't express enough my gratitude for these amazing souls.

It's been awhile since I've written. Today, I decided it was time for a "Me" day. After a few days (weeks) of challenges, it was time to take a step back. It's amazing how often we get stuck in default mode and start spiraling into the chaos of life. Today, I took off from work and ran some needed errands but mostly I let go of some stress that has been building. I was able to step back and re-frame today because I stopped long enough to allow that to happen. It's amazing that even after years o...

This week started off on a bad foot... literally. I fell and hurt my knee by climbing over a baby gate. I think it was the universe telling me that I needed a change of plans. I was supposed to fly to North Carolina but had to cancel the trip. It wound up being a really great week. I feel so inspired and at peace. I was able to spend some time this week on the things that bring me so much joy. I haven't felt this productive and at ease in awhile. It's been an incredible week.

You would think that a cup of coffee really isn't something that a person could be so grateful for. But as I sit here drinking my coffee, I am counting my blessings. For most of my life, I couldn't drink coffee. I have what is called an angry gut. Meaning my stomach is unusually sensitive. I laugh now but growing up I really thought it was normal to feel/get sick every single time a person ate. I didn't know any better. It took me until my late 20s to finally get help and find some remedies. I s...

I had an ultrasound done last week, for my constant stomach pains. The test came back normal, which is good! I had my meds changed, & it’s helping a little bit. So I’m glad I didn’t have anything blatantly obvious wrong with me! I’m holding out hope that we can pinpoint the problem & solution!!

Recently my basement flooded for the second time in 18 months. The first time took weeks to clean up. The most recent took about a day, not including follow up on insurance claims and such. I remember the first flood waking me up to the shear enormity of other floods in the south and how I did not recognize the challenge entire communities face during a flood. My recent flood was a mere hassle more than a life moment. I am insured well and have been made whole both times. The most re...

The sun is shining and I get to work with the window open. It makes my heart feel so full. I can hear the birds chirping as I work. Yesterday, I went to the Dr later in the day. I walked out as the sun was setting and the office was closing. The employees were leaving and getting in their cars and I sat there for a moment and counted my blessings. I remember leaving the office everyday like that and being a bit bummed that I had missed out on so much of life going on outside of those brick w...

I feel like some days that I take for granted that I can sit with the window open. I worked in an office building so long and most days, I didn't even get to see outside! Today, I'm so grateful that I can sit by my window and feel the wind blowing and sun shining. Life's too short for cubicles!

I’m another year older and I’m thankful to be alive. I’m thankful for being able to celebrate with those that I love. Thank you to my amazing husband who arrranged a wonderful dinner with family last night. Today it’s nice enough that I get to sit on the deck and swing a little before the sun goes down. The air is slightly cold but refreshing. I love being able to sit here and hear the birds. It’s so relaxing.

There have been a few obstacles in my path this week, and it's been tough. There have been some communication struggles with my new office job, and trying to save energy to put into my second job. This week is just a blink of an eye in this life, so I try to forgive myself for my mistakes and keep on learning and growing to make next week better. A lot of times I lose sight of this mindset, and Matt is the one person that puts me back on the right path. His smile reminds me just how simple l...

I was having a bit of a stressful morning and kept doing my breathing technique to help release some negative energy. I needed a little break so I decided to check the mail. It's about 10 degrees outside right now. I bundled up with my coat and boots and went to check the mail. The mail hasn't come yet, so as I was walking back into the house, I realized that the sidewalk was covered in snow... So I decided to go ahead and stretch out my break a little longer by cleaning off the sidewalk which t...
