Maybe the Answer is Less.

A couple of posts ago I had talked about searching for my something more. But what if I had gone about it all wrong? What if instead of searching for something more, I should be searching for less? Less social media. Less hustling. Less hurrying. Less worrying. Less stress. Less doing. What if my something…

One Year ago.

Today is my blog anniversary. One year ago I started my blog. When I started I had no idea what I was doing or what I was getting myself into. I felt like quitting but then I had a few people tell me how much they enjoyed my blog. I have less than 100 followers…

Searching for a Passion.

I think I have a pretty good life. I like my job for the most part. I have a wonderful husband and great kids. I have some amazing friends. I am very grateful. However, I am looking for something beyond being an employee, a wife and mother. Something of my own. Something………more. For the past…

Some of my Truths.

The days are long but the years are short. The teacher appears when the student is ready. Fear is an illusion. Continuous learning is a big part of happiness. Just because something makes sense for others, doesn’t mean it makes sense for you.

Sundays Have me in Chains.

Sundays. When I think of what Sunday should be, I think of quiet, peaceful times. My Sundays are far from that. It’s my last day to sleep in before the work week starts. Where waking up early is a form of torture for me. I wake up Sunday with a long to-do list. Setting up…

Self Care Means Something Different for Everyone.

The term self care seems to be everywhere. Take time for yourself. Get a manicure. Have a bubble bath. And while those are all great things; you should take time for that if you enjoy it, however, self care can be so much different than that. It took me a while to realize it, but…

It’s a Matter of Time.

We all get the same amount of time. We decide for the most part how we want to spend that time. Some people have beautiful gardens and you think to yourself, man I wish I had the time to tend to my garden. What you don’t realize is that her house might not be as…
