Walking through it

Let me set the scene for you. This weekend I headed to NYC on the Megabus for an unscripted weekend. I didn’t know how long I was staying, or what I was doing, so I packed for two nights. I get a text message from the fella telling me where to meet him. I googledContinue reading “Walking through it”

Adventure

At heart, buried beneath my love of routine, is an adventurer. When I think about the times that I have felt most alive, I was heading into the unknown. Life has gotten in the way of exploration. Work. Stress. Money worries. Thus I’ve found myself wanting. The times that I’ve been the most creative haveContinue reading “Adventure”

Joy comes in the morning

Yesterday was a rough day. I felt off kilter from the moment I woke up. I had everything planned in my head, but everything was off by half a step…from my commute, to my working interview, to the rest of my day. I’m not gonna lie…I was so disheartened, disappointed, disillusioned. I mean, I hadContinue reading “Joy comes in the morning”

Would you say those things to your best friend? To your child? To your lover? No? Then why do you do that to yourself?Continue reading “Self love and acceptance”

I left my job in the dental field almost six months ago. I was sick mentally and physically. I was so far beyond burnt out that I was unrecognizable to myself. Over 10 years ago, I left a church. I was mentally and physically sick. I was so far beyond burnt out from volunteering aContinue reading “Breaking trends”

New-found Joy

When I was a kid, my father always told me, “Girl, whatever makes you happy, makes me happy.” I never understood that fully…I thought it was a dad thing to say, nice and all…but I never truly got it. I spent a lot of my life so deeply unhappy with me, that I couldn’t trulyContinue reading “New-found Joy”

Unwritten

When something comes up over and over, you have a choice. You can ignore it or you can investigate it. In light of becoming more self-aware, mindful and such things, I decided to embrace it. Right after I graduated from Temple in 2005, I went through a very dark period. I broke up with myContinue reading “Unwritten”
