Discouragement

This is a rambling post. But rambling can be good, right? Let's jump right in. No one...and I mean no one can escape discouragement. Whether it's the occasional setback or the constant drone of a buzzing bad hand that gets you down, discouragement will find you. And it'll find you whenever it wants. It's not fun. It's ...

Burning Out or Backing Off

Hello, hello! Happy Monday. With the start of the work week comes, well, all the work. Exercising, meal planning, work, extra work, hobbies, lunches, commitments, kid's games, and so on will fill the week. The games have begun! But what happens when you start getting tired? Unable to function and cranky all the time? Are you going ...

Surrender To Positivity

I touched this on this topic before. In a way, at least. There is a strong positive voice inside of each of us. Whether we admit that or not is our choice. That doesn't stop it from existing it just stops us from listening. That voice exists to lift us up, strengthen us, and give us ...

You Won’t Ever Be Happy (Enough)

WOAH! Controversial topic over here! But it's not what it sounds like so stick with me. You won't ever be happy enough. Not if you're looking to be happy enough. Or happy in general. It doesn't quite work that way.  The latest kick is to embrace yourself, love yourself, and find inner happiness. Advertisements and ...

I’m Not Strong Enough

Here's some word vomit: I'm not strong enough to face my battles. I'm not strong enough to conquer them. I'm not strong enough to stand on my own two feet and push through the headwind of my struggles. I'll fall to my back with an open, vulnerable belly. I'll fail if I fight. I'm not strong enough to ...

Appreciate Your Mornings

Mornings are beautiful. Mornings are gorgeous. Mornings are divine. Not enough people think so though. It's part of our society to bash mornings because those initial moments aren't comfortable. It's hard to wake up. It's hard to see the beauty of the morning. When your head is hunched over your coffee, when you're squinting in the sun on ...

Bright Day Yoga

On this blog, we've covered what to do with a dark day, a sad day, a frustrating day but we haven't touched on what to do with a bright day. Not every day is about overcoming struggles but it's a lot easier to ignore the good days. Isn't it? So, what do you do when the sun is ...

Be Good To Yourself

These happy little plants, watered and fed, sitting in the warm sun are just that....happy. They've got everything they need. Their roots are stabilizing them as they reach their arms to the sky. Or just as they grow and multiply. It's simple for them, isn't it? Sucking water up their stems, turning sunlight into energy, it's easy ...

Why I Go Upside Down

I do yoga. I love yoga. I breathe yoga. Okay, little much. But I really, really love yoga and for me, that means loving inversions too. Putting your head, hands, or both on the earth and floating up your feet just feels divine. When you do it right. But why do I go upside down? What draws me ...

You Aren’t a Fraud (Maybe You’re a Writer)

I'm not a fraud and neither are you. You know how I know? Because you found this article. Unless you've subscribed to me and this blog, and unless you're reading this to support my non-existent income, you're a writer. You desperately searched "Am I a Writer?" to no avail. You scrolled and scrolled and scrolled ...

Space and Kindness

Welcome back! Or should you be saying that to me? Let's talk. How long can a hiatus from something go on for before it becomes neglectful? How many months, years, or decades can one spend away from something before it's considered abandonment? Sounds like pretty complicated stuff BUT (luckily for us), the answer is in the intention. ...
