When I started this blog, I told myself that I would give it a year and see how I felt. That year mark has arrived so it’s time to reflect and see what my next steps will be. It’s been a crazy, and very full year. I had promised myself when I began, that I … Continue reading Out with the old…
I don’t know about you, but I am about 100% tired of all the resolution and goal-setting crap that has been inundating my inbox over the past week. If you are anything like me, you make goals by the day if not the minute. Each day we start out with a new goal in mind, … Continue reading Goals Schmoals…
I almost didn’t write this week. I have a lot on my plate completing projects and term papers for my master’s program, but then while doing all of this I’m recognizing a pattern of behavior that I realize has been part of me since birth. I’m a self-saboteur. It doesn’t matter what it is, as … Continue reading Self-sabotage
When I was younger, I wouldn’t call in sick for anything. It was a source of pride that I would go to work half out of my death-bed as if the world would stop turning if I didn’t arrive. I remember teaching classes through sticky-notes- designating a student reader, and typing notes on the Smart … Continue reading Praise the zombie days…

Quite the contrary, rather I’m a perfectionist- always seeking perfection in the things I do, in my behavior (and of course … Continue reading Throwing it all in the F@#*-it bucket: giving myself a break from perfection
A few weeks ago I mentioned the curriculum I would build for myself if given the chance to get a Masters in LIFE. Since then, I’ve been pursuing the items on my list as if my life depended on it and it has felt amazing. It hasn’t been an intentional pursuit which has made it … Continue reading Acing this LIFE thing…Summer School Progress Report.
I have fallen victim to myself. This journey that I have decided to undertake- saying “yes” to life- has turned out to be a constant discovery of all the ways in which I sabotage myself on a regular basis. And maybe not even sabotage, but the ways I stifle myself and keep joy out of … Continue reading Saying “yes” to life…by taking it back.
So during my workout exploration, I mentioned my need to rein my nutrition in and I assured you that I wouldn’t make you go along on that journey with me. Well… I lied. I’m not going to do a day-by-day report by any means, but I wanted to share my experience with this in case … Continue reading Saying “yes” to life… and taking better care of myself.
If you read my last post you know that I am on a journey taking statements that I’ve been making about myself for forever and reevaluating them to see if they are still true, or worse, if they were ever true, or if I was just going through a rough time and created a story … Continue reading Saying “yes” to life…and working out
