Scary Things

I used to hate scary things. Not scary movies or books (like Helter Skelter, that one messed with me for a while), but things that took me outside of my comfort zone. Scary things like quitting my job, starting my own private practice, writing blogs, buying a house, having a baby. Have you ever heardContinue reading “Scary Things”

A Not So Great Start

I knew there was a reason I wanted to devote an entire month to focusing on feeding and loving my body well… because it’s tough! We are not off to a great start. I’m going to be kind to myself because of my four month old. Something about cute babies and sleep deprivation makes meContinue reading “A Not So Great Start”

…Is A Temple…

I call this week’s resolution “…Is a Temple”, a short biblical saying, taken out of context to remind myself to treat my body with respect. Meaning giving it good food, the exercise it needs, and other things it needs to be the healthiest it can be. This month is going to be tough for me.Continue reading “…Is A Temple…”

Mediocre Meditation

I think some people are scared of meditation. “You mean sit and do nothing except be mindful of my thoughts for a long period of time? I don’t think so! I spend most of my day trying to ignore the thoughts that go through my head!” That is usually somewhere along the lines of theContinue reading “Mediocre Meditation”

Sacred or Secular?

 For March, the book I chose to read was called, “Grace Without God: Finding Purpose and Meaning in a Secular World” by Katherine Ozment. The author discusses, the “Nones”, the “single fastest growing religious group of our time is those who check the box next to the word “None” on national surveys. In America, thisContinue reading “Sacred or Secular?”

Growth Plan Week 4

Last Friday was the end of the “Teach Me Something” resolution. And so far I’ve learned fluid dynamics, flow through a tube that changes area, how to calculate density, acceleration, mass, and time. And my husband learned the Sun Salutations A and B and basics of trauma therapy. At the end of the week, weContinue reading “Growth Plan Week 4”

Teach Me Something Good

As the week comes to a close, I am getting ready for next week’s resolution, which I’m calling, “teach me something”. Before I explain next week’s resolution, let me recap last week: Read a book a month. I already finished one book and am on to my second book this month. Yes, I am anContinue reading “Teach Me Something Good”

Wishing Away Happiness

The summer is filling up fast. Trips and birthday parties, cook-outs and get togethers, there are lots of things to look forward to. I am a planner. I like to be organized and prepared. So when I look at my calendar filed with lots of fun activities, I also see packing lists, grocery lists, andContinue reading “Wishing Away Happiness”

Sweat the Small Stuff

..I know.. the title of this blog seems backwards… and maybe it is. But I was thinking today about how much the “small stuff” matters. And by “small stuff” I mean daily activities, everyday choices, small tasks, etc. For a lot of my life, I would only play sports that I knew I was goodContinue reading “Sweat the Small Stuff”

Yoga Every Day?

I graduated from a six month Yoga Teacher Training program in July of 2018 but I haven’t practiced yoga since May of 2018. I enjoy Yoga and believe it can cure all sorts of ailments; back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, and much more but I was in my firstContinue reading “Yoga Every Day?”
