Just Over A Year

Just over a year ago, I brought home Gryphon. My love, my best friend, and my little fur-baby. I remember many people saying to me, “When you get a dog your life changes!” It always sounded so negative. At the time, I had no idea the impact this little doggo would have on my life…… Read More Just Over A Year

Fall

I sat on the wooden ledge in the front window and watched the snow fall under the streetlights. It was a narrow, unstable ledge, but there I sat as close as possible to the most beautiful snowfall I had ever seen. The kind of storm with the big, fluffy snowflakes that you want to catch… Read More Fall

Trailblazing

In a way, we are all trailblazing through life. We are creating paths that have never been traveled before. While we learn from lessons and listen to the guidance of those older than us, the fun part of living is learning and trailblazing.

For me, it was… Read More 3 a.m. Regret

Well, thank… Read More Quaran-To-Do

Grey Zone

Isn’t life great when we have all the answers? When things are black and white, it’s easy (or at least easier) to make a choice. We can look at the respective paths with all of the information and make an educated decision. However, what about when we do not have all of the information? That… Read More Grey Zone

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?
