Finding Myself In Finland, Part 1

Finding Myself In Finland, Part 1

Here’s what I don’t want to do. I don’t want to tell you the whole story. I want to stick to the Instagram version where I was thrilled all day every day and never felt so great in my life. But, since my word of the year is Authenticity, I’m going to be brave and tell...

What Has Your Pain Done For You Lately?

Perspective For The Win. Right?!?!

Perspective For The Win. Right?!?!

Perspective for the win! Every time! Until…...   My father’s favorite one-liner is about a man who has no shoes. “I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” This quote that most people know is meant to invoke a sense of perspective that allows...

Untangling Your Health Story

Untangling Your Health Story

As a kid, I loved sitting down to untangle chain link necklaces. You know, the kind that you would tug at from one end and it wouldn’t unravel, it would just make the tangle more solid? I revelled in my ability to sit patiently and push on that tangle until I saw a...

Sometimes I’m Just  A Little Mental

Sometimes I’m Just A Little Mental

I can be so dysfunctional. I’ve used my word of the year method instead of resolutions for some time now. Choosing a theme instead of setting resolutions that I'm not going to keep anyway works better for me. I love it and it has enriched my life. That being said...  ...

New Year’s Resolutions Suck. Read This Instead.

No, seriously. New Year's Resolutions Suck.  I’d like to share with you what I do instead of New Year’s resolutions. New Year's Resolutions suck, we all suck at them and we all get sucked into them. A few years ago, I started choosing a theme for the year instead of...
