On feeling exposed

Here I am, within this beautiful space where I can lose myself in my words, my feelings, and the space to create. Here I am allowed to babble and rant and rave to my heart’s content without knowing judgement or feeling shame. I am free, I can fly. This week I was faced with a peek into a reality that I want, only to have … Continue reading On feeling exposed

2018: Thrive – Q3 Recap

Ah, here we are again. Q3 was a big one, so I sure as hell hope that I can remember everything that happened. Develop well / peaceful existence: – Carving out time for writing/reading I’ve still been reading but it’s been slow which is fine. I continue to add books to my “to read” list, and I know once winter hits, cozy nights in my … Continue reading 2018: Thrive – Q3 Recap

Retrograde

Apparently it’s a thing. I don’t really follow horoscopes and the moon cycles, but I remember the last time I was feeling shitty, someone mentioned that we were in retrograde. And it just happened again tonight. The past 6 days have been pretty hard for me. I wouldn’t say I’m in a depression per se, but I’m definitely feeling in some form of a funk. … Continue reading Retrograde

I had spent all winter praying that my car would make it, promising myself that 2018 would be the year to finally upgrade. But as it warmed up and spring finally sprung, I kept pushing it off. I casually researched and tried to learn … Continue reading Dates & Cars

2018: Thrive – Q1 Recap

Wow, can you believe first quarter is done?! It feels both like the longest and shortest quarter. I feel like the older I get, the more I use the phrase “time is flying by!” and it kind of scares me. But I think I’ve been making the best of it despite my first winter back being the snowiest winter that Michigan has seen in awhile. … Continue reading 2018: Thrive – Q1 Recap

Jill Scott is my girl-crush

I was listening to my “Women who inspire” playlist today and Jill Scott’s “Womanfesto” came on and rocked me straight to my core. I’ve listened to that spoken word multiple times, but it’s never resonated quite like it did today, so I decided to go ahead and put it here, in a place where I’ll see it again and again. It feels fortuitous and timely, … Continue reading Jill Scott is my girl-crush
