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…

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?

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?

the power of intention… (pt. one)

As a child, I was told that I could “do anything I set my mind to.” It usually wasn’t far behind “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

So, in my kid brain, “setting your mind to something” translated to a big picture idea. Like, if I wanted to be a doctor or lawyer, and worked really hard, it would happen.

Whatever the “thing,” it was always somewhere far in the future, promising eventual graspability. Regardless, I took it to mean that anything was possible.

It took me years—decades—to realize that “anything” had actually been within my reach all along…

this heaviness…

Man, it’s been a heeeeeeeeeeavy last few weeks. And I know that I’m not the only one in the midst of a major life upheaval. I keep hearing it from friends, acquaintances, astrologists, and intuitives. We’re all going through some crazy shit right now.

And believe it or not… it’s all for our highest good.

i guess i couldn’t shut up…

This past Mother’s Day, I wrote a Facebook post expressing my perspective on motherhood. With the current state of affairs, I think it bears repeating.
