Sometimes you have to be the a**hole

I was talking to my Dad this morning on the phone on my way to the gym about a friend whom I have known since I was 13. Our friendship has changed. It seems to be out of date and not working anymore. You know those friends where you reach out to them on their […]

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” […]

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 […]

My Heart is Not a Piece of Pie

Hi. I am Chelsea (Hi, Chelsea) and I am a stage five clinger. I always felt like my friends were slightly out of my reach. They were a little too cool, a little too everything to want to be my friends. So, when I felt friends slipping away I started to hang on and hang […]

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 […]

A Cure for the Mondays…on a Tuesday

This morning I was having a serious case of the Mondays even thought it’s a Tuesday… The idea of moving sounded hard—let alone negotiating real estate transactions. But then I remembered something… I come from a family of car dancers. A good song comes on while we’re on our way somewhere and we just can’t […]

Dream, Write, Let go…

I believe that I can manifest anything in the world by putting it out into the universe and then working hard on the things I know I can change and then just letting go. Sometimes I forget that when I was 15 one of my parent’s more “spiritually inclined” friends gave me a candle and a […]

Daddy always said, “Say Your Prayers”

I always had trouble sleeping as a kid. I always wanted to sleep in my parents bed and every time I tried to sleep in my own bed there was somewhat of an emotional breakdown. I didn’t want to. I was so scared. And let’s face it, I ended up sleeping in my parents’ bed […]
