Anxiety and When Life Happens

Wow. Bed bugs, losing clients, a more strict budget, more shifts at work, poor decisions leading to worsening mental health, needing an oil change, broken washers and dryers, and learning to like our “new” home. We’ve had a lot more to take in and handle than we ever could’ve anticipated these last few months, and … Continue reading Anxiety and When Life Happens

Sometimes moments just stick out in our minds. Silly. Strange. Peaceful. Annoying. Expectant. No matter what they are, our minds choose them as important to remember.

This bead serves as my reminder to believe in my own abilities. Often times, being able to do your best relies on believing in your own abilities. For me and … Continue reading Anxiety and Doing Your Best

Someone Who Inspires Me

I’ve spent a good deal of time thinking about how to answer this one, especially since I have so many amazing people in my life that bring wisdom, fun, and encouragement, as well as many people I’ve never met or met in passing that have highly impacted my life. But I realised that I want … Continue reading Someone Who Inspires Me

Five Places I Want to Visit

I’m definitely a contradiction. One of the most baffling types. I itch for two conflicting things constantly, and I can never tell which I want more. I am a homebody, but I’m also a traveler. There are so many things that I adore about both. Like the soft, yet cutting feeling of blades of grass … Continue reading Five Places I Want to Visit
