The Practice of Self-Kindness for a Happy + Healthy YOU

Hey friends!

I started out with the intention to write a light and simple post on self-kindness, but ended up with something longer and deeper than anticipated.  

Self-kindness is complicated. 

There's enough fluff all over the internet.

And I'm not light and fluffy.

I hope that you enjoy this post, and are able to be a little (or a lotta) kinder to yourself as a result!

The Authentic + Passionate life IS the Journey

Hey friends,

Let's jump right to it today.

I recently got into a somewhat heated conversation with a family member who doesn't quite agree with my approach to life.  He stated the following:

  • following one's passion can be fickle and unreliable;

  • instead of chasing one's passions we should just bring our passions into what we do;

  • young people idealize what they don't have;

  • following passions may not be practical depending on where they are in life;

  • learning how to delay gratification is more important that living with passion.

Why I'm Done Pursuing Balance


It's hard to believe that the summer solstice came and went, isn't it? That's because life seems to fly by for all of us.  I was thinking about it...

So, achieving balance which is "essential" for feeling good physically and mentally, should be somewhat easy for me, right?

It's not.

A Post with No Ending or Point

Hey friends!

This post is long overdue, and a fair warning, may be a little over the place.  I hate to say that I've been "too busy" to blog, but I truly have been too busy.  I've been pulled in a million different directions between motherhood and business.  In addition, we took a vacation last month, and then my dad ended up in the hospital.  I tried to keep everyone updated on Instagram, and appreciate all of the love and prayers we received.

Running a Business + Being a Mom


I have been totally swamped in motherhood over the past 10 days.  Bodie, who is not an easy toddler in general, got a cold early last week, that turned into a secondary infection last weekend.  He ended up on antibiotics.  My husband and I got the same bug, and went on antibiotics as well.  It's the first time I've had to take them in years!  

Being sick, and being a mom quite frankly sucks.

Being sick, and being a mom to a sick kid sucks even more.

Being sick, being a mom to a sick kid, and a wife to a sick husband is the worst!
