Don’t Get Sick

Listen, I hate getting sick too but the last time I was honest to god sick was quite a bit ago. And I work with kids...which is why I got sick in the first place. But considering how many of those little buggers cough on me (and how many adults do too), I thought it'd… Continue reading Don’t Get Sick

Put The Phone Down

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving which normally means we're eating a lot and getting together with family. Maybe we've seen the family recently, or maybe relatives are flying in from far away. Either way, the whole purpose of the day is to give thanks. For food. For family. For love. For life. We are sharing each other's company… Continue reading Put The Phone Down

I’m Full: Respect Eating Habits

So here we are, the magical week of Thanksgiving. All the yummy foods of our nostalgic, American holiday are approaching. We've only got a few days before we're elbow deep in the food of this seasonal holiday. How exciting! Except, for some us, we know that odds are, we're going to run into some troubles.  Let's… Continue reading I’m Full: Respect Eating Habits

Try It Again

The holidays are all about being kind to one another. Being generous. Opening our hearts. Spreading love. Embracing one another and being patient. So why are we not like that with ourselves? Why is this beautiful season something that we can only extend to other folks? More importantly: Who set up that standard? Let's face… Continue reading Try It Again

Listen To Yourself

Listening to yourself, practicing self-care, whatever you would like to call it we are oftentimes bad about seeing the signs our body gives us. Most of the time, as much as I don't like saying this, it doesn't matter that much. Why? Because not that much goes on in the spring, the summer, even the early… Continue reading Listen To Yourself

Rearrange Your Knick Knacks

We love our knick knacks. That is why we have them after all. We have collected them, been gifted them and because of that, we see them and see the memories they hold. We see the trips we've been on. We've seen the memory of a loved one who has passed. We see firsts and… Continue reading Rearrange Your Knick Knacks

Wake Up When The Sun Doesn’t

Daylight savings time is ending and we're about to fall back into brighter mornings (for now) and much darker nights. That doesn't mean that it won't be cloudy, rainy, or even...snowy when we open our eyes. Fall and winter are a time in many areas where the sun doesn't wake up for a while, if at… Continue reading Wake Up When The Sun Doesn’t

The Beauty of The Dark

None of this malarkey about "because you can see the light". Here, today, we are talking about the dark. And to say anything after "the dark is beautiful" should be a sin. Talking about the dark as a way to see the light has its place, but it isn't here. The darkness is beautiful on its… Continue reading The Beauty of The Dark

What Are You Afraid Of?

Here's a fun question: What are you afraid of? What terrifies you? What haunts your dreams? What do you refuse to watch on TV, in film, read in a book? What terrifies you? Don't worry, this isn't a pop quiz so you don't have to answer. Not me at least. Fears are private things, they're big weaknesses, aren't… Continue reading What Are You Afraid Of?

Darkness and Your Fears

Since Halloween is approaching, I thought it'd be nifty to spend the next week discussing our fears, horror, darkness, and all that fun stuff. We'll start with this. Why are you afraid of the dark? Why are we afraid of the dark? Later on during this journey we'll discuss what we are afraid of but for right now,… Continue reading Darkness and Your Fears
