MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS: EPISODE FOUR

So, we did this crazy thing called buying a business while both working full time and having a baby and parenting two big kids and we’ve been living in a time vacuum since last October or so. I often forget what year it is. 2020? 2018? HOW MANY YEARS JUST HAPPENED TODAY?

HEY MAMA

Today I celebrate the tenth birthday of my daughter.  She’s ten. A decade. 3,652 days (you know, plus leap years?) old. Parenthood, well that escalated quickly. But seriously, when people say “the days are long but the years are fast,” they aren’t fucking kidding. I still remember her birth with fresh pain, and can still … Continue reading HEY MAMA

GAS PEDAL

Wow. So January is off to kickass, rockin’ good start so far. But um, holy time commitments batman; according to my calendar, I have about 30 free minutes in the month of January, 15 in February, and potentially five, give or take a phone call, in March. Wowie wow wow. I love it. It’s good. … Continue reading GAS PEDAL

MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS

So, after a rather lengthy internal battle, a few rounds of rationalization, several bottles glasses of wine with my friends, and uh, careful review and critique. . . I ordered my Christmas cards this weekend. Sigh. Insert monkey covering eyes emoticon here. Yep. I caved.  I totally did. Like, I did the expected thing. Ugh. … Continue reading MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS

(SHE’S GOING) THE DISTANCE

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record here, but for real people, when you know what you want, and you let the universe know- IT DELIVERS. Remember those miracles I mentioned last month? And how once I was very clear about what I wanted the universe just made it rain? Yep. So … Continue reading (SHE’S GOING) THE DISTANCE

SOMETIMES I LISTEN

So, I’ve been going along here, full speed ahead. 13-15 hour work days almost seven days a week. Getting my shit done. Saying “yes” to everything. Saying “no” to very, very, very little. It’s been awesome. Amazing. Fan.Fucking.Tastic. Things like this have happened: My yoga classes are growing, some even doubling in size. My writing … Continue reading SOMETIMES I LISTEN

YOU SAY IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY?

So. Today. I um. I’m celebrating 2014. Oh. No, not the year. I mean, I have punctuality challenges, but I’m not that late for New Year’s Eve. Nope. Today is my 20-14 birthday. You know, 20, plus 14. Go ahead and roll your eyes. I know. It’s lame. And yep. I’m 34. This girl. Right … Continue reading YOU SAY IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY?

GUTS OVER FEAR

So, I have  confession to make. Gulp. I’m not actually always that good at letting shit go. Like, um, I am. . . but . . . I’m also . . . not. I’m good at letting SOME things go. I’m good at not letting MOST things bother me. I can release hurt, anger, pain, … Continue reading GUTS OVER FEAR

JUMP

Yesterday was a trip. Literally. I had my first day at a new part time job (yes, another one. . . ), about 30 miles away from my house, back in the community from “before.” Before, as in prior to when I made all this progress. Before, in my previous existence, when I was unhappily married and taught … Continue reading JUMP

HEY THERE, YOU’RE AN ALLSTAR

Have you ever observed a spinning top? It leans one way, and then another until it slows and topples. Notice that it never simply spins in the middle, centered, perfectly balanced in all directions.Let’s take a look at that little metaphor of life, shall we?How many things are you doing right now? How many jobs, … Continue reading HEY THERE, YOU’RE AN ALLSTAR
