2020: Reflection

I have been choosing words for my years since 2015. As I lined them up a month ago, I began to see a visual of my life. This visual was a mountain and the past five years was me climbing it. But even the five years before that was filled with growth, change, pain, and a lot of learning. Let’s take look back at the … Continue reading 2020: Reflection

2015 The Experience – Q1 Recap

I can’t believe first quarter is over and it’s time for me to take a breath and think back on what I did the past three months. As a refresher, my focus this year is concentrated on four main areas: Writing, Traveling, Dancing, and Music. Of course I’m also trying to grow and develop in other areas of my life as well, but those are … Continue reading 2015 The Experience – Q1 Recap

Stop….Hammer time! (Or my time, same thing)

Whole30 is winding down, and I have to say that it’s not been too bad. It really wasn’t until halfway through this past week that I felt really ready to be done with it. I feel like I’ve really learned a lot more this time around, but this time it’s been less tangible things like “oh, milk makes my tummy hurt” or “I do like … Continue reading Stop….Hammer time!

2015 – The Experience

I can’t believe it’s 2015 and that I’m so late with this post. I can’t believe that we just closed another year. I can’t believe who and where I am these days. I can’t believe the changes that have been made, the struggles I’ve fought through, the awesome experiences I’ve had, and the difficult choices I’ve made to let things go. As I look ahead … Continue reading 2015 – The Experience

What’s inspiring me lately?

I figured it’s been a few weeks since I last posted a couple songs that are resonating with me, and as much as I listen to music, that’s like years! So, here are three tunes I’m totally digging: Oh, The Lone Bellow. Possibly my favorite discovery from the New Music Tuesday list on Spotify (that I listen to every week!). The harmonies, the soulful music, … Continue reading What’s inspiring me lately?

Where do you focus? Where do you go?

Lately, I’ve had this nagging feeling that I have a lot on my mind, and yet, I can’t really put words to it. It’s quite frustrating actually. I go to write or speak and just get a blank whiteboard in my brain. So, I’m just going to keep typing and hope that something comes out that makes sense at some point or at the least … Continue reading Where do you focus? Where do you go?

It’s only been 5 months….? (Part 3)

I don’t talk a lot about my family on here and there are various reasons for that. However, this post wouldn’t be complete without explaining the very people from whom I have gotten my artistic side. But first, by day, I’m an accountant. Real creative, right? 😉 It’s true, I got my degree in accounting and have been working in the financial world for about … Continue reading It’s only been 5 months….? (Part 3)

It’s only been 5 months….? (Part 1)

Hey world, it’s me again. Geez, I know, I know, where the hell have I been? Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin (everyone says that, right?). Let’s take it all the way back to post-Whole30 from last year, and I’ll try and be as brief as possible. Winter is always a really challenging time for me mostly due to the holidays. It’s generally … Continue reading It’s only been 5 months….? (Part 1)

WOD 9/6 & Whole30 day 23

Oh boy, we’re getting close! I can smell the red wine from here!!!! (Seriously guys, that will be my first jump back into the “real” world. I don’t care about pasta or cookies…I want my wine!) I forgot to take pics of my food today. I can definitely tell I’m nearing the end as I’m not nearly as motivated to record every step I make. … Continue reading WOD 9/6 & Whole30 day 23
