Self-Care

It is really easy to forget to take care of yourself. I do it all the time. Things get busy, or exhausting, or both, and then all of the things that are meant to make that easier to deal with go right out of the window. I am so bad for this. As soon as life gets […]

November: A Very Challenging Month

Well, that went by quickly. I’m pretty sure I blinked and the entire month of November managed to sneak its whole big bad self right by me. How? I took part in three separate and completely unrelated challenges last month: NaNoWriMo, a plank-a-day, and No Sweets November (a joint effort between Sarah and I). I […]

Crush Your Comfort Zone and Live Longer (Sorta)

Ever heard the saying, Life starts outside your comfort zone? Totally cliche, I know, but also totally true. Weird how that works, right? I have been in a rut for the last, oh, four months. (Have you guys noticed?) There was a lot of stuff in flux, a lot of transitions and things to get used to. I […]

The Calling

Remember this song? Do you feel like you have a calling? Like there is something in life you are meant to be doing? I do. And I don’t. It’s complicated. (Isn’t it always?) It feels like my entire being is straining towards … something. But what that something is? I have a few ideas, but nothing […]
