You can have it all, just maybe not all at once…

I really, truly believe it is possible to have everything you want in life by believing you can, hard work and not giving up. The world is literally your oyster. However, I also think I would be remiss if I didn’t say I think it’s next to impossible to try and create the whole entire […]

You are loved.

You are loved.  You are loved.  You are loved.  Don’t believe me? Repeat after me: I am loved.  Again.  I am loved. I am loved. I am loved. Say it seven times. I say that because I literally just googled “How many times does a person have to tell themselves something before they believe it” […]

Slaying the Dragon

When I was in therapy on Monday I started listing all of the terrible things that I was sure were going to happen. “I’m scared I won’t be able to do all the work.”  “I’m afraid this person is going to think I’m stupid.”  “I’m worried that I will never follow my dreams.” “What if […]

Today Will Be a Better Day

I had a rough day yesterday. Domi started his master’s program and it is ending up being much more time consuming than we expected. Which means I’m on my own more than usual at work and that was scary. I spent a lot of the day crying. I think I was mostly afraid of feeling […]

Just love, okay?

I was Facetiming with one of my friends the other day who was struggling to make a decision about the relationship she’s in and whether or not she is ready to take the next step. I told her, “just do it! Take the next step. Love with your whole heart until maybe one day you […]

Running…Slowly

I’ve never been much of a runner. However, I’ve always had this insane jealousy of those that can run long distances. And by long distances I mean anything longer than five minutes. I always saw my friend Alex who would go on trips all over the world posting Instagram stories of her morning runs in […]

Dear Uncle Herb, what’s the meaning of life?

“Today, Dennis and Chelsea went for a beach walk and Chelsea came up with a game. She said, “let’s figure out the meaning of life. Each thing we pick up will be a clue and with them all together we’ll have our answer.”

Just Own Up to It

We all do stupid things sometimes. When I was in high school I, of course, wanted to be liked by everyone which I have since learned is virtually impossible. But one of the most common currencies in high school is gossip and if you have gossip on someone and you share it, it tends to make you more popular. I was not immune to this.
