Scary Things

I used to hate scary things. Not scary movies or books (like Helter Skelter, that one messed with me for a while), but things that took me outside of my comfort zone. Scary things like quitting my job, starting my own private practice, writing blogs, buying a house, having a baby. Have you ever heardContinue reading “Scary Things”

A Not So Great Start

I knew there was a reason I wanted to devote an entire month to focusing on feeding and loving my body well… because it’s tough! We are not off to a great start. I’m going to be kind to myself because of my four month old. Something about cute babies and sleep deprivation makes meContinue reading “A Not So Great Start”

…Is A Temple…

I call this week’s resolution “…Is a Temple”, a short biblical saying, taken out of context to remind myself to treat my body with respect. Meaning giving it good food, the exercise it needs, and other things it needs to be the healthiest it can be. This month is going to be tough for me.Continue reading “…Is A Temple…”

Growth Plan Week 4

I wanted the challenge of sticking to a daily habit. The journal provided me with that accomplishment (so far) but it also taughtContinue reading “Journal and Beyond”

I have enjoyed writing them but feel I need to add more direction. I recently finished The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. For one whole year, she pursues increasing herContinue reading “The New Plan”

Sweat the Small Stuff

..I know.. the title of this blog seems backwards… and maybe it is. But I was thinking today about how much the “small stuff” matters. And by “small stuff” I mean daily activities, everyday choices, small tasks, etc. For a lot of my life, I would only play sports that I knew I was goodContinue reading “Sweat the Small Stuff”

Clearing Clutter

Last summer, my husband’s Hyundai Sonata broke down. After several trips to the mechanic to investigate the problem and a couple hundred dollars later, it is decided that the work it requires just isn’t worth it. It isn’t safe to be driven, so it sits. In my garage. taking up valuable space. For months IContinue reading “Clearing Clutter”
