Next Stop: Priority Station

This week I had to either reschedule or cancel so many plans I wondered why I even made them in the first place. This is not uncommon for me. I want so badly to say yes to everything and everyone that I say yes without really thinking or looking at my calendar. I end up […]

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 […]

Icky Days and Icky Nights

I got home last night and flopped down on our sofa. I was exhausted, I was emotionally depleted and I was ready for bed and it was about 7:05pm.I had a crappy day yesterday, but as I fell asleep I closed my eyes and thought, “it’s okay, tomorrow will be a better day.” So, I […]

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 […]

As someone whose mind runs on high speed pretty much all the time being in the moment is always something that I thought wasn’t accessible to me. I decided I really wanted to puzzle this one out and these are the very early stages of me figuring out how to be in the moment. I […]

What Do You Do???

That picture/thumbnail is of Domi and I doing something that definitely doesn’t involve how we make a living, but something that is equally if not more important to us-traveling and being together. We are made up of so much more, so why is society so focused on how we earn a living instead of all […]

Sorry, I Am Not Sorry

I apologize for everything…Maybe it’s just me, maybe it’s part of the human condition…I’m not sure, but am I alone here?? It’s not required that we constantly assign blame for everything we do, so why do we? I’m not sure, but I’m trying to work it out… Happy Friday Friends, I hope you have the […]

Ohhhh…I’m Allowed to Have Feelings

I’m pretty much one of the most emotional people ever…just ask my family…so when I was all of the sudden stuck and confused as to why I wanted to just put my head through a wall out of frustration and I didn’t know why…I needed to call for backup from my oh-so-wise-thank-goodness-I-married-a-sage other half.

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.

Gratitude and Mexican Reveries…

The holidays can be a fraught time for many, but for me, personally, outside of my birthday, it’s my favorite time of year. It’s a time for traditions and a lot of food and for me, those check most of the boxes. Every year since I was seven, my parents and I have ventured to […]
