Snowy Adventures and My Secret Spot

It’s a brand new year folks (where does the time go?!) and so far, 2017 is going swimmingly! (Again, I know there are plenty of valid fears and disappointments out there over the state of politics and our world today, but I’m keen to keep this blog about positivity and finding happiness so am goingContinue reading “Snowy Adventures and My Secret Spot”

It’s About That Time Again

You guys, this year absolutely FLEW by! Where did the time go?! 2016, though perhaps politically quite terrible (which I will not get into in this blog post because this is a predominantly positive space and goodness knows what we have in store for us), was personally pretty amazing for me. But it felt likeContinue reading “It’s About That Time Again”

Welcome (Back) to the Jungle

Friends, I feel it’s only fair to warn you in advance: this (extra-long) post will probably make you want to immediately shell out your hard-earned money for a one-way ticket to Southeast Asia. And I wouldn’t be able to blame you one bit if you did! I spent the last two weeks in Thailand gettingContinue reading “Welcome (Back) to the Jungle”

A New Kind of Journey

“Saraswati, Senior Dharma Yoga instructor will bathe students in sound healing on the deepest levels while laying in Shavasana to the sound of the Crystal Alchemy Bowls & Gongs.” This was the description of the “sound journey” that I went to at my yoga studio a couple of weeks ago. I know, I know, itContinue reading “A New Kind of Journey”

Full Steam Ahead

Now, I know that many of you are probably not resolutions people, especially at this time of the year, when your New Year’s resolutions may or may not have fallen by the wayside. Personally though, I love them! I like having goals to achieve and I think they keep me from getting too complacent. Yes,Continue reading “Full Steam Ahead”

Striking a Balance

Today’s post is about finding balance in life. I have so many things that I want to accomplish in this moment in time that I’m having trouble figuring out how to do it all. I want to get fitter, improve my yoga and rock climbing, lap swim four days a week, keep up with myContinue reading “Striking a Balance”

My Time Is Mine

You guys, I am feeling so damn inspired lately! Since I’ve last written, I’ve done so many productive and cool things, and my self-esteem is shooting through the roof compared to what it was a month or two ago. If any of you are feeling blue or low or a little bit like you’ve gottenContinue reading “My Time Is Mine”

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Happy New Year, my dear friends! I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that you’ve come out of the season energized and rejuvenated, like I have. I know the holidays can be a bit on the stressful side, with all the traveling and crowds and having to pick out presents that (you hope) peopleContinue reading “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

Reflections (Someone is feeling mighty cheerful today)

I have noticed as of late that I have somehow, slowly and inconspicuously, managed to find my own life again, without Rich’s presence. Most days, I don’t even think about him anymore. I have found that I have much more pep in my step, optimism about the future and, in general, a very real feelingContinue reading “Reflections (Someone is feeling mighty cheerful today)”

Be Kind to You.

Weekends are wonderful and terrible for the newly single. They’re wonderful because, of course, you’re free free free and can do whatever you want! They’re terrible because what you want to be doing is spending the weekend with your ex, which is no longer an option. I was feeling especially vulnerable this weekend, and missingContinue reading “Be Kind to You.”
