Why Can’t I Quit

I've always heard people say they have an "addictive" personality.  This was never something I felt applied to me.  I discovered recently, I think I was in denial.  I do think I have an addictive personality.  Over the past 9 months, I have really been working on getting healthy, which means changing lots of bad [...]

That ONE day

I'm sitting here watching the rain pour down and dreaming back on a week ago when I had my toes in the sand. I have been in a complete funk all week. I thought it was because I only had a quick taste of the sand and the ocean, and that I was only able [...]

The Ocean

I LOVE traveling alone. I find myself when I'm alone.  I get in my head space, where it's so quiet that I can finally hear myself screaming.  I feel, I process, and I heal.  This past weekend I was able to head to the beach...for 1 day. No noise, no social media, no responsibility, just [...]

The Alone Version of Me

2017-09-08T19:22:39+00:00 August 11th, 2017|letting go, life, marriage, Me|

I have always been a very independent girl, until I got married. I was the girl, on the side of the road, changing her own flat tire. That was something Dad taught me. I never found my identity in anything other than exactly who I was. That slowly began to diminish after I married Jack. [...]

Breaking Down The Walls

I experience everything from a distance. I find myself never getting in too deep emotionally or feeling my experiences to the fullest. I can honestly say it is not intentional, but that I miss feeling the situation before I even know I stayed distant.  My dad always said to me, "Your disappointments are directly proportionate [...]

The Stork Brought Him

Lately I have found myself reliving my pregnancy. Mostly due to TimeHop reminding me everyday what I was doing this time last year.  It is so hard to put into words, but pregnancy is a giant blur.  When I look back, it feels as though it was an out of body experience.  I vaguely remember [...]

I was 12 days past due and baby boy had not made his grand appearance yet.  I was planning on doing everything in this birth process unmedicated, and as natural as possible.  I had been studying my Hypnobabies curriculum for months, mentally preparing myself for this process. I knew it could go opposite as planned, [...]
