october… (pt. one)

October was hard for me. From what I hear, I wasn’t alone.

And then there was a blood moon lunar eclipse on November 8. I don’t know about you, but I woke up with a sort of optimism that I hadn’t felt in awhile.

It was like a breath of fresh air.

Not gonna lie. I was worried there for a minute…

status update…

I’ve started a number of posts this week, but trashed them all halfway through. They couldn’t accurately capture what I’ve been feeling or experiencing lately, so I didn’t see the point in finishing them.

Sometimes, it’s okay to stop. It’s okay to cut your losses and quit wasting your time.

it’s okay to ask for help…

A stomach bug hit our household last week. Aaaand carried over into this week.

Stomach bugs suck.

I don’t know about you, but I hate vomit. It’s one of the Top 3 things I try to avoid.

But the COOLEST thing about a stomach bug is that it’s often coupled with diarrhea. BONUS.

I digress…

when your body says “enough”…

How do you know if you’re stressed? Do you feel it in your body as it’s happening? Or do you only realize it after the damage has been done?

Alternatively, are you a person with their shit together who takes preventative measures in order to combat the physical, mental, and emotional drain brought on by stress?

Or are you a little bit of Column A, B, and C?

Yeah, same. I mean, we know better, but also… life, amiright?

short weekend message…

Take it easy this weekend, friends.

It’s a tough one for many.

Be kind. Refrain from ruffling feathers.

Lay low. And give yourself grace.

Use this time for healing/recovery/self-care, or to prevent burnout/illness/overwhelm.

It’s okay to say “no.” Embrace the JOMO (joy of missing out).

Sending you all love and comfort. 🙏🏼💖💫

change up your energy…

Feeling off lately? Yeah, me too.

And it’s really weird because I felt so “in the flow” last week. Then the weekend hit and BAM—off.

I think a change up in energy is in order!

I’m always hoping that someone out there can take nuggets from these posts to help them in their own lives, but I have to admit that deciding to write about this today is also a little reminder to myself.

So… let’s do this together!

fun with numbers…

Do you have a favorite or lucky number? Or keep seeing the same ones everywhere you go?

Ever wonder if there’s a significance to them beyond their face value?

Certain numbers definitely have a special place in my heart and hold deeper meanings for me.

Shall we go on a little numerical journey together?

the power of intention… (pt. three)

So, what have we learned so far? That one (seemingly) random intentional choice can change the trajectory of your life and, by applying this concept practically, you can change the energy of your home. Nice!

Now, let’s explore creating a daily practice of setting intentions to inspire personal transformation…

plot twist…

Over the last several weeks, my family has been preparing for big changes.

Three weeks ago, we moved one kid into college dorms out of state.

Two weeks ago, we took one to her first day of kindergarten, while her brother began his last year of junior high.

Next week, one will make his first foray into preschool.

And in about 16ish weeks…

the power of intention… (pt. two)

When you have a profound realization like I had in that car, it leaves a mark.

But of course, a miraculous recovery from years of self-destructive behavior is (most likely) not gonna happen.

So, what did happen?
