I Am NOT a Newbie!

Last week I sat on my yoga mat, already sweating from the heat of the room. Only it wasn’t just the heat that was making me sweat. It was the idea that the teacher might ask if it was my first time. And guess what? It was my first time at a new studio. I […]

I Will Not Eat Your Comparison Pie

Comparison is bad news bears. Comparison takes the joy that I am holding so delicately in my hand like the most perfect little flower and crushes it with a hammer the size of Venus. How do we cope with comparison? Why do we compare? I wake up in the morning and immediately it begins, the […]

Being a Human is Hard

A friend reached out to me and asked if I could chat a bit about letting go of things that happened to you in your past. Woof. That is a tough one and I certainly don’t have it all figured out, but there are a couple of things that I have found that can make […]

I’m Just a Big Kid

Sometimes I think we need a little reminder of the small happy things that can happen in life. And then we need to remember that they can happen to any of us at any time. About five years ago, my Dad and I were driving up to visit my Daddy while he was away at […]

It’s been a crazy incredible year and as it comes to a close I start to get a little panicky thinking about all of the anticipation that comes along with a new year. There’s so much excitement, but also a lot of pressure. I usually love planning and preparing for a fresh start and a […]

After a long day of Christmas shopping Domi and I came home on a high. We love being around the holiday spirit. We even allowed ourselves some peppermint mochas…  As soon as we walked in the door, Domi quickly and meticulously wrapped one belated birthday present for my Uncle and then we walked back out the door […]

I Have an Internal Teleprompter Elf Problem

My family has lovingly named the part where you come back from vacation, re-entry. It’s the time leading up to landing back into the normalcy of life and all of the sudden realize you have to go back to work and everything feels a little bit terrifying. And it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been away […]

Airport epiphanies…

I’m pretty sure taking one’s own advice is next to impossible…I was working on a bunch of transactions this week, all dependent on what someone else said or did. I was talking to one of my friends about how she should let go and know that the best outcome will ultimately come to light and […]

It’s just 60 minutes…

The doorbell rang and I sprinted down the hallway and threw open the door to find one of my favorite people, Olivia, standing behind it with the most adorable smile on her face. She’s one of my best girls from college and I don’t get to see her all that often so every moment I […]
