    Musings: These Eyes

    …never saw you leaving. Who knew that sharing such raw emotions and authenticity would be so empowering, so relieving, and so helpful through a deep, dark process? It wasn’t the cure, by FAR, but it helped. The love and responses received after Musings: Hundreds in Therapy, Later was overwhelming in the best way possible. I did not write that post for any other person, than myself. I still, after a full month post-break-up, have a hard time saying I’m single. I have a hard time not saying we or bringing up stories of us. It’s still raw, painful, and a pit of sadness still resides inside of me. Some days are better than others, some are not. I…

    Just Trying to 'Heal the Disconnection'

    I think I’m just as much of a undercover hot mess as the next person… Which is why I think I hit a nerve when I posted Do As I Say, Not As I Do!  It seems that many of us struggle daily with wanting to love ourselves (mind, body, and soul) but also wanting to change ourselves too. I think this struggle isn’t limited to our bodies, but that is where most of our struggle is focused. As Run Far Girl posed the question: Can I accept my body and still want to change it? She is basically echoing the sentiment in my post (well, she wrote and posted…

    Thinking Out Loud – Back At It!

    Annnd I’m back at it… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. It’s been a few weeks since I participated in Amanda’s link-up, but today is the day I jump right back in. The last few weeks have been slightly off due to my sinus infection & Thanksgiving, but I always enjoy this link-up!

    10 Day YOU Challenge – 2 Songs

    Music moves my soul… In case you missed My 10 Secrets, My 9 Loves, My 8 Fears, My 7 Wants,  My 6 Places,  My 5 Foods, My 4 Books , and My 3 Films take a peek! This “challenge” comes from Kristen’s at Glitter and Dust.  I’m the worst if you ask me who sings what. I love music. I love listening to the lyrics and applying them to my life, kinda sappy, right?! I love that it is there to soothe you, to get you moving, to motivate you, or to put you in a certain mood or elicit a specific feeling. I love tons of genre’s and I’m not…

    Thinking Out Loud…Literally

    Thinking…sometimes it’s a little rough 😉  Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Busy week, outside of my work hours. Every day is something and will be until Sunday. I know I am the culprit of this, I can say no to things/events, but I think I thrive on a jam packed schedule. I’m not the best “home body,” even though I can be at times. I’m much more efficient when things need to be fit in, in certain time frames. If you give me tons of time to do it, I generally still wait until the last minute. Rant over :/ Haha! Yoga – I’ve been saying I want to do…
