Seeing The Beautiful Things.

  Last weekend, as Dan and I took ourselves out for lunch at Panera bread, there was a woman sitting at the table beside us. She was on her own, drinking a big foamy latte and slowly munching away at a big, delicious, sugary muffin. She was reading some sort of self-learning book.  She was just sitting there. Enjoying herself. Relaxing. Reading. Completely on her own in the mid afternoon.    A couple days…

Week In Review: Thinking Out Loud Edition

I have a lot of random, whimsical thoughts rolling around in my brain right now. Sooo I thought I’d mash my Week In Review up with some traditional Thinking Out Loud and share the random musings that accompanied my accomplishments from the week. Its fricken cold here. Like… burn your face, frozen snot kind of cold. My will to do anything at all has been at an all time low. Whyyyyyyyyyy’s…

Lessons in Letting Go

Huh. So I wrote this post nearly a month ago now. I kept putting off publishing it for this and that reason. When you start a post so far in advance, sometimes it – after time – begins to feel disingenuine because it no longer feels applicable to your current state. But theeeeeeen last week happened. And things kind of made a full circle. Maybe it was just waiting for the right time… Does anyone know what I mean…

Making Goals: How Do You Want To Feel?

A few weeks ago I was introduced to The Desire Map through Leah’s blog. I’ve found myself very intrigued by what Danielle LaPorte has written and would like to think out loud with you today. Thank you, Amanda.  With The Desire Map, Danielle presents the idea of asking ourselves, “How Do I Want To Feel?” when it comes to making our goals.  How do I want to…

Life Check In: What’s Working and Where I Still Want Change

So I started this subject on Monday and decided I didn’t want to let it go.  I spoke about the things I had noticed in my previous week that were “working” for me – the things that are making me feel good and I’m currently happy about. The awesome thing is that there are a number of these things right now. In addition to asking myself “what are the things that…

Anxiety. Could It Really Be Mind Over Matter?

On Monday I mentioned how last week I was really struggling with anxiety. This perpetual, chronic sense of body tightness and  chest discomfort just wouldn’t go away, no matter how much I tried to stretch or focus on my breathing.  When I have a lot of anxious thoughts, I feel almost as if I’ve pulled muscles in my chest. And my solar plexus turns to rock. My mind was steadily racing to…

Should Restaurant Menus Include Calorie Counts? (Thinking Out Loud)

Before I get in to today’s discussion, I’d like to thank Marina over at A Dancer’s Live-It for so kindly having me on her “Warrior Woman Series” yesterday. I’m honored to have been featured alongside so many women who I, myself, look up to with admiration. Marina is doing such a wonderful thing with this series by putting real stories out there. I encourage you to check it…

Thinking Out Loud: Change Feels Weird

Guys. It feels weird.   Yesterday I briefly spoke about how, right now, I’m feeling good. Happy, and at peace.  I still stand by this. In fact yesterday was another really lovely day. That being said, this “feeling good” comes simultaneously with a sense of also feeling really…. weird.  Especially last week, when I was just learning my new schedule and was trying to formulate some sense of routine, there were…

Thinking Out Loud: End of Summer Anxiety and Flying Away

Hi friends, It’s been forever since I’ve come here with a traditional, uncensored mind-dump, but I think this week especially could really use a good unloading of mind junk. So – I’m taking advantage of Amanda’s weekly link up and doing some major Thinking Out Loud.  First on the radar: Anxiety My anxiety has been pretty through the roof this week.  On monday I mentioned…

Creating a Life You Don’t Want to Run Away From

Many people spend their lives running.  And no, not the marathon kind. We spend so much time and energy running away from who we really are, what we really feel and what we really want to do. We distract ourselves with our iPhones the instant we have a moment of open space. We keep ourselves busy busy busy in order to avoid too much quiet time where our thoughts can get the better of us…
