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 

2017 – “Create” and “Persist”

Usually, I start my New Year’s post about 2-3 months before December 31st. This year, oh boy have I been dragging it out. I’ve been collecting random bits and pieces of thoughts in my head for the past month, but just haven’t found made the time to sit and actually put them down. Truthfully, I’m still unsure of how my thoughts will shape into something discernible. … Continue reading 2017 – “Create” and “Persist”

The circular effect of good habits

A couple months ago, I came back from a big international trip and panicked because I didn’t have any other trips planned until November. So, to compensate, I booked three weekend trips for October. Whoops. I’m now two trips in, and while I have had great times, I am half-way regretting my decisions. Mostly because I now won’t have a full weekend off/at home until … Continue reading The circular effect of good habits

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
