Ain’t That Some Shit

“You think can just entirely get rid of something about yourself?” I recently heard a someone say, “No. Whoever told you that is a liar!” “Well no,” I’d replied, “I just keep thinking that if I work hard enough it will like… go into remission or something.” Ha. I guess it kind of works like … Continue reading Ain’t That Some Shit

CLARITY

Get clear about why, craft your possibility of what, and . . . FUCKING ASK FOR IT.

TAKE A LOOK AROUND

I’m sitting on my couch late at night on a Friday reflecting on this year, its lessons, its pain, its growth, and looking for the light parts. Looking hard. I’m here in maternity sweatpants with a sweater stretched over my bouncing and expanding belly, wearing a messy bun and practically no make-up despite having gone … Continue reading TAKE A LOOK AROUND

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

Before this fuck-up of a year is over, I wanna talk about the “E” word You know, the E word. The one that gets you hurt, in trouble, puts your foot in your mouth, the stick up your ass, and your cart in front of your horse. THE, E word. Expectations.

Do your thoughts actually change your. . . reality?” Me: “YES! EXACTLY YES. YES. YES. YES!” This was about three-quarters of the way through a really great conversation about … Continue reading TURN THE LIGHTS ON

HOLD PLEASE

$780. That’s how much my Tuesday cost. Seven hundred and eighty dollars, and three hours out of my day. I walked out of a meeting, smile on my face, ready to continue what had already been a great start to the day, and then I saw a boot on my front wheel. Parking tickets. I … Continue reading HOLD PLEASE

TOWARDS THE SUN

It’s finally the Monday After (Christmas). My house is quiet while I work, checking emails, surveying the results of an intense five weeks, identifying what’s now ahead. My kids are gone to their dad’s for the week, my husband is lost down an NPR rabbit hole and I’ve already put away and deep cleaned my way … Continue reading TOWARDS THE SUN
