Finding Happiness

I have been away, taking some time to regroup. Late in 2018 we faced some challenges that forced us to move in with family. We traded in a wide open country lifestyle for a hectic urban one. It was hard, but we needed to get out of a toxic situation. Yet it has been anContinue reading “Finding Happiness”

Overcoming Chaos

To say this weekend has been rough is an understatement. My instinct is to keep things private. To discuss things is to let that wall down. To let people in is to show weakness. It goes against everything that has been bred into me since childhood. Yet sharing can be cathartic, and helps us grow.  Continue reading “Overcoming Chaos”

It is a historical fiction based in Europe during World War Two. Here are my thoughts on the book. This book focuses onContinue reading “Book Review: Between Shades of Gray”

Me First.

 In my last post I wrote about my past, and its challenges. I wanted to follow up by writing about my plan of action. One part of my plan is a deeper focus on self care. We live in a face paced world, and often put our needs last.  Taking care of ourselves is importantContinue reading “Me First.”

Inspire Me

 It is a world full of new cultures and destinations. People are diverse and  are inspired by different things. Some are inspired by beautiful works of art, or high ideals. Others can be inspired by small conversations, or an intimate moment. This week I took some time to think about what I am energized by. TheseContinue reading “Inspire Me”

What I am Thankful for

 Here in New Hampshire it seems we are in the full grips of Winter. We have had three snowstorms in a week. Today is Thanksgiving, and I am wondering where 2018 has gone. As I get older the years go quicker, with no sign of slowing down. Since it is Thanksgiving I want to share whatContinue reading “What I am Thankful for”

Fighting Expectation

  I am 28 years old.  There are certain things that are expected. I should have a house, and a successful career. Hard as I try, I struggle with these. In the last year, both of these things were within reach. Yet the goal in sight, I began to doubt myself. A steady corporate career didn’tContinue reading “Fighting Expectation”
