Turns Out, Life Had Other Plans

It’s 10pm on a random Tuesday in May and I am left feeling a mixture of nostalgia, loneliness and restlessness all wrapped up in one. It’s been a few weeks since I last saw my husband or my dog, and while I am learning to make new patterns for this portion of our journey to having kids, it doesn’t make any of “this” any easier. I could have been wildly financially ahead of where I am had I made better choices in my youth. I could have had a “better body” had I focused more on the vanity that conventional beauty demands.

Cheers To The Future

Sitting down to write something this important is a daunting task. It’s almost surreal to look back at the last five years of my life and realize how blessed I have been in the ability to share it with you all.

Life is busy. So now what?

Last year, I caught myself saying things like “I’ll get to it when things aren’t so crazy” or “There isn’t enough time in the day!” The funny thing is that the more connected we are with one another online and around the world, I think that sometimes we become less connected with ourselves. I had to face some pretty challenging moments that have offered me a perspective on life that I now use as a pseudo-mantra of sorts. Today I wanted to share a few life hacks that I use to keep myself balanced and from loosing my sh*t on those days when it all feels like too much.  Continue reading “Life is busy. So now what?”
