Mission on Muchness

“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.” We’ve all been down the rabbit hole once or a few times in our lives. Possibly a few times since this morning. 🙋🏻 Yes, me since sunrise with orbits of thoughts around my head. It happens during interminable unproductive meetings. It maddens from the misery of a long, un-prioritized…

Just do it.

The Sunday before last I ran a half marathon with no preparation or training. How appropriate to title this blog the Nike slogan, right? 13.1 miles and I had mentally convinced myself that I would not finish. I was ready to accept defeat as long as “I tried” to run the race. I felt guilty…

Pretty Dawn Good

I made history being the most awkward person to accept a marriage proposal. July 5th I kissed  my boyfriend on the Eiffiel Tower and smiled as I said, “Aww, look babe we can now say we kissed in France on the Eiffiel Tower.” As he took the opportunity to transition into proposal mode he shared…

I’m trying to get back to myself. I was listening to the radio the other day and heard this ad endorse “delicious consequence.” I…

We Were Meant to Pulse

I come from a small town, the kind of town that carries a redneck reputation, where the trucks are big, the bonfires are rowdy as hell and well a lot of baby making happens. Most of my high school’s graduating class still remains within a 10-mile radius of the town, at least it feels like…
