3 a.m. Regret

I woke up, and I was suddenly showered with regret. I’m sure the average person has had at least ONE of those nights. Whether it is a night that is a little too much fun, or the middle-of-the-night (somewhat crazy-puff) moments where we can’t resist, we’ve had a 3 a.m. regret. For me, it was… Read More 3 a.m. Regret

More Is Less

We’ve all heard the saying that “less is more”, but what about when “more is less”? Hear me out for a minute… Over the years, I have become obsessed with many things. Yes, I would say that “obsessed” is a fair statement. These things have sometimes been great (like golf) and other times not so… Read More More Is Less

Want

You can’t always get what you want. As the song goes, it is the reality of life. Sometimes your dream job doesn’t materialize, the material object is out of your price range, the relationship doesn’t work out, or whatever else you might be thinking about. I’ve been thinking a lot about “want” this week and… Read More Want

Well, thank… Read More Quaran-To-Do

A Lesson In Self-Love

Today I thought I’d give you three short notes about self-love. Self-love is truly one of the most important qualities one can have and it takes a lot of work sometimes. It’s not about thinking you’re perfect or being a complete narcissist, but it is about accepting yourself, giving yourself permission to focus on you,… Read More A Lesson In Self-Love

Winning?

Usually winning is clearly defined. In sports, it is the team with more points at the end of the game or the person that crosses the finish line first. However, this week I was thinking about the less clearly defined “wins” in life. The ones that involve power struggles. These wins can involve self-sacrifice or… Read More Winning?

On The Road Again

The other week I was driving a route I have driven many times before. Lyrics of the song “On The Road Again” looped in my head, and I found my thoughts drifting as they often do when I drive. To me, driving is meditation to a certain extent. I would say this is mostly because… Read More On The Road Again
