My mom called this morning after I had finished my morning meditation. She’s cute. She said, “Meditation is easy, all you do is think of all the positive things in life and you’ll feel better through your day.” Yes, thinking positive puts you in a better mood, but that’s not quite meditation. That’s more like, positive affirmation contemplation. A true state of meditation comes from letting go of your attachment to thoughts, whether good or bad. Nothing is good […]
I first heard of the Periscope app when Kino MacGregor (Kino Yoga) kept talking about it in Snapchat. At first I was annoyed because she was promoting another social media site on a social media site. I wanted to spend countless hours on snapchat, not being redirected someplace else.
And then I finally checked it out.
When my most favorite people and mentors start doing something, I want to follow what they’re doing because they know what’s up! Soon, I saw Chalene Johnson […]
Hi! I had quite an adventure in Europe. I also had a lot of fun bringing my little friend Munches around and taking pictures of him in many of the places I went. It was a fun project for me and he made a great point of reference for the photos. You can find the pics on Instagram using the hashtag #AdventuresOfMunches.
I am a talker. I always have been and it’s how I’ve always felt with my emotions. I talk to people. Sometimes it’s venting and sometimes it’s just thoughts about life and love. Lately I’ve felt supressed and haven’t shared my feelings with many people. I’ve been unable to share exactly what’s going on in my life, mostly from fear. Fear that i will be judged and shamed. Some people have ideas or have asked but I haven’t been […]
It’s nice to look back and see what you’ve accomplished. And today I’m not necessarily looking at goals, but rather counting the fun summertime experiences I’ve had. The summers here in the north are way too fast so every fun event needs to count. This list of pictures is in no way in chronological order. They are kinda scattered. That’s okay. It’s just memories.
Full weekend camping trip to Itasca. We did all the usual things like biking, kayaking, running, […]
I’m going to Europe! In less than three weeks. For an entire MONTH! That’s right folks. I’m headed over the Atlantic on July 20 to go explore the world and territories unknown to me. Now don’t you worry, I’m in good hands with a couple of good friends who have experience traveling and are super awesome, so I will not be doing this alone.
Where are we going?
First we fly to Dublin, Ireland where one friend’s brother lives. Then I’m […]
There’s no where to move except forward. Dwelling on the past, questioning the what ifs and the should haves won’t get you anywhere but depressed. There’s a saying that if you are depressed, you are living in the past; if you are anxious, you are living in the future; if you are at peace, you are living in the now.
So what do I want to do to make the rest of my life, the best of my life?
I’m going to keep doing what I’m […]
I have this calendar hanging in my bathroom by the mirror. Every X represents a day that I did not have a binge/purge episode in the month of May. I’ve struggled with this eating disorder thing since I was a teenager. I’m now 26 years old, so I guess you could say I’m at about the 10 year anniversary mark. An eating disorder isn’t something that just up and vanishes after a bit of counseling and working with a […]
It’s time to come clean.
Okay, not quite. If you know me personally and we talk in person, you might have an idea of what’s going on in my personal life. And honestly, it’s probably of no interest to most people. Without giving away too many details I want you to know that I am doing really well. I am really really happy. If you’d like to find out more, talk to me in person please. I will share everything […]
A few days ago I knew I needed to just get out of this depressed funk I’ve been in. I had decided to press the delete key on this pity party I was having. From an outsider, I look happy and act happy. But there was and is still is this emptiness inside me. I started questioning my life. What was I waking up for? What was my purpose?
I resolved to make little changes in my life instead of […]
