Self-Care Saturday: Shopping

Believe it or not, shopping is a part of self-care. Owning clothes that fit your body and your lifestyle is a part of self-care. Over the last year, I’ve lost 20 lbs. It was a slow gradual process and came as a result of taking care of myself. However, I’ve been running into the issue... Continue Reading →

Daring Greatly: That’s A Wrap

I finally finished the book this week! It was kinda fun doing a book series blog post, and it was most definitely challenging. I’m really glad I did it, and I learned a lot from it. That being said, let’s get started on the last chapter. Wholehearted Parenting I’m not a parent, yet. I hope... Continue Reading →

Self-Care Saturday: Reflection

Since I started this blog back in January I have been doing Self-Care Saturday posts. I posted a lot about essential oils initially as they play a major role in my self-care. However, over the last 2 weeks I started prioritizing a different aspect of self-care. I definitely still use my essential oils in my... Continue Reading →

Mind you, I didn't realize how much my body would change over this last year, so it... Continue Reading →

Daring Greatly: Disruptive Engagement

I have found writing about this week's chapter more challenging than previous chapters. Usually when I'm reading it I have a way that I can relate and a story I want to share. And this chapter that didn't happen. I was struck by what Brown was saying about feedback. She talks about how our culture... Continue Reading →

Daring Greatly: Mind the Gap

I’ve mentioned before that I kinda live under a rock, especially when it comes to references, so I learned the history and popularity... Continue Reading →

Daring Greatly: Vulnerability Armor

This chapter immediately brought to mind the first deep conversation I had with my boyfriend. We talked almost every day for 14 mos before we decided to see if there was something more to our friendship. We live 500 miles apart. He works a Monday - Friday 7-5 schedule. I work 3 12 hr night...

It’s May Day

That's a thing right? I keep seeing that all over facebook, and the same memes about how it's about to be May. I'm really bad at catching references of any kind. My boyfriend quotes movies and I get totally lost as to what he's referencing. Anyway! I'm really excited about a new month, new beginning.... Continue Reading →
