This might be the most controversial thing I’ve ever put on my blog, but I am going to say it anyway. I’m trying to view Monday as a gift. Trying. Praying. I woke up in a horrible mood. Tired, grumpy, so not ready for another week in the daily grind. My fuel tank feels empty and more than anything else, like the toddler I secretly am, I just don’t wanna. However, my prayer this morning was and is to be… Read more »

Good Morning, Party People! It’s Wednesday! How are we feeling? I should so totally be a hype man. Is that a career? This would totally be me: Anyway, all is rather quiet on the Western front. I’ve been meeting deadlines like a champ. I did yoga yesterday. I’m just trying to live my life. I seriously have nothing to report. I haven’t been sleeping well, so my mind isn’t being very creatively forthcoming. I’ve mostly been Pinteresting “how to clean… Read more »

Welcome, friends. We made it! I am so excited for this year. I truly believe it can and WILL be the best year ever. Of course I couldn’t let today fly by without the obligatory resolutions post. So here we are. In the past, I’ve made over 9,000 goals and tried my darndest to accomplish them, but, inevitably, failed. So this year, I’m boiling it down to overall goal categories that I want to focus on, and giving examples of each…. Read more »

Hello. This post is late. Yesterday was a shambles. I was in a funk all day and I just got myself to bed. I’m not sure what spurred the funk. I’m thinking it might just be general exhaustion and frustration. And the fact that my birthday is swiftly approaching and my 25th year of life has been… interesting. I’m looking forward to the holidays, but I am REALLY looking forward to kissing 2014 goodbye. And by kissing, I mean murdering… Read more »

Did you know that God left us instructions for how to deal with haters and internet trolls? Because He did. Enter Proverbs 9:8: Let’s dive a little deeper, shall we? “Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you.” To me, this means two equally important things. 1) Just don’t. Don’t even bother. 2) No matter how right you are, they will hate you. When we engage haters and trolls and even people who poke fun at us “all in… Read more »

Morning, my sweet friends! Maybe it’s my morning cup of coffee, or the fact that I woke up early enough to enjoy a leisurely coffee, or that it’s already Thursday, but I have definitely been feeling more peaceful since I’ve decided to concentrate on not guilt-tripping myself. I am cutting myself a break. And it feels really nice. I’m hoping those of you that related to my last post are feeling similar peace in your lives. If not, I encourage… Read more »

LeFou, I’m afraid I’ve been thinking… “A dangerous pastime!” “I KNOW!” (Name that movie.) I’m not sure why I’ve been so introspective recently, but I guess it’s just where I am right now. And that’s okay. I’m sure there are all manners of pyramids and flow charts and 90s television shows that talk about life, and finding balance in life, but I’m going to talk about it some more. SO DEAL WITH IT. I feel like my life, right now,… Read more »
