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

2019: Soar – Recap

It’s ironic how much I’ve been agonizing over my 2020 post and feeling so lost on what all to write, and I hadn’t given a thought on my 2019 recap post. However, I always find my words forward when I look back. Man, how to even encapsulate it all? Fun stuff: I went to Ireland I knew going into 2019 that it was going to … Continue reading 2019: Soar – Recap

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

2018: Thrive – Q4 Recap

Here we are, the end of another quarter, and the end of the year. Q4, you did not disappoint and neither did you give me a lot of rest. Develop well / peaceful existence: – Carving out time for writing/reading Since moving into my house, I’ve put a lot of thought into how I wanted my office to feel. It was really important to me … Continue reading 2018: Thrive – Q4 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

July: The Month of the Plan!

Hi, hello, it’s birthday month!!! More specifically, MY BIRTHDAY! I’ve always been a big fan of my birthday, unlike some people who try to tell as few people as possible, I try and tell everyone. Well, kind of. I’m not obnoxious about it, but for those I love and trust, yeah, they know. Surprisingly, the older I get, the more I enjoy celebrating my birthday, … Continue reading July: The Month of the Plan!

2018: Thrive

I started this damn post in October, so why am I just now getting it posted (late) in January?! I bug myself. *sigh* Anyways… Going into my fourth year of goal planning with word association and it feels good. Why is it that we never appreciate our progress in the moment, only when looking back? When we’re in the middle of a grind, it’s so … Continue reading 2018: Thrive

2017: Create & Persist Recap

Another year has come and gone. I’m officially in my mid-30’s now, and kind of feeling like I’m finally hitting my stride in life. Kind of. Maybe. *insert shrugging emoji* But in all seriousness, 2017 was a crazy year and I’m pretty damn proud of myself for what I was able to accomplish despite the crazy ups-and-downs and how unhappy I was for the first … Continue reading 2017: Create & Persist Recap

Celebrating consistency 

When I go back and read through posts about my workout routines and dieting, I see a girl struggling so hard to find some sort of balance in life and love of her body. I can sense the excitement and hope in early posts, the plans for shopping for size 6 jeans, and every man’s head turning when she walks in the room. I can … Continue reading Celebrating consistency 

The appearance 

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
