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

Bodies and Health and Food and Minds

I found a new doctor. Thrilling, huh? I know it’s kind of a strange topic to blog about, but I really, really miss my team of doctors in Seattle, and since moving, I’ve just had a hard time finding a primary physician to replace them. But, I’ve found one (even though the freaking wait list was 3 months long). I’m not sure I think she’s … Continue reading Bodies and Health and Food and Minds

I can … Continue reading Celebrating consistency

Carving out time to write seems like it should be easy in my new world, but for some reason, I still don’t do it. Not because I don’t have the time, but I just don’t make the time. Why? Eh, probably avoidance, but we’ll see what we can do. Anyways, on to better topics. As a catch-up, I finally feel like the dust around me … Continue reading The appearance 

My relationship with….me

This post has been brewing around in my mind for the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t had the guts to really sit down and try and sort through it in writing. My relationship with myself has been a very long, very tumultuous road. And I don’t think I’m even half-way through. But when I pause and look back, I can see growth and … Continue reading My relationship with….me

Writer’s block

For the past several months, I’ve sat down at various times and pulled out the laptop, opened up my site and stared at a blank page for an hour, then meandered on to other social media in an effort to ignore the block in my head. I hate writer’s block. Mostly because my head will feel full (don’t laugh) and yet I can’t get anything out leaving … Continue reading Writer’s block
