Long time, no blog! 🙂 I’ve had this post milling in my thoughts for some time now, and you’ll soon see why I had to wait until now to write it. It was an incredible holiday season this year, much better than the previous holidays. I was super into it, work was busy and incredible, … Continue reading

Small Life, Slow Life: Two Thoughts for Your Weekend.
Hey guys! I’m sipping coffee on this warm Saturday afternoon feeling totally happy and relaxed. Life has been, seriously, pretty freakin’ great lately. For one, my adrenal fatigue is finally healed after years of suffering and months of work with my doctor. I’m on supplements and I pulled all irritating foods out of my diet … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: Fairytales. Why it matters that you get to choose. And some thoughts on marriage, too.
Sunday, 6pm: kneeling down to lock the door at work after a long, satisfying week. I was saying goodbye to a dear friend and her baby who had come to visit and we lingered in the doorway, chatting. Then, as it happens rarely but surely a few times during one’s lifetime, I had the unique, definite … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: The Blog Comment I Wish I Could Send as a Love Letter To Each of You.
Happy Sunday, y’all. Got this one in my inbox this morning. Thank you, dear Anonymous, for sharing your story. I remember when this happened to me. Four terrible months of crying daily. And then, in the span of a few minutes, the change. The realization that life could go on. That love is our only … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: It Will Break You. You Will Hate It. It Will Change You. And You Will Thank It.
My sister and I went to a Taylor Swift concert on Tuesday. Everyone starts out wanting to hate Taylor Swift, me included, a few years ago. And if you still hate her, you clearly don’t know enough about her…because she is generous, she is dorky, she is kind, and she has a way of translating … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: Have Compassion for the Runners.
They were always running. Even their sprint toward you was them running from something else. For a time you were a safe haven, an escape from the flames. You relaxed into their embrace, even while anxiously hearing the crackling of the fire, much too close for comfort. But do you know what happens when someone on fire … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: Five Cool Rituals to Help You Let Go.
Have you ever noticed that when it comes to letting something go, we get all agitated and resistant? It’s like when people talk about having a gratitude practice or meditating — science has shown over and over that these practices absolutely increase happiness, and yet we’re totally resistant to them and get borderline annoyed by … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: I Honestly Don’t Care If You Get Your Ex Back.
*drops mic and walks off* Seriously, though. I don’t care. I don’t care if my advice in this post helps you. I don’t care if you write me a whole novel or send me an email, detailing every last bit of the whole entire story. (In fact, please don’t do that.) I don’t care if you … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: The Importance of Finding ALL of Your Soulmates.
I think every girl my age dreamed of having a group of friends like the Sex and the City girls. They’re unspeakably close, they make each other laugh, and they nurture one another through heartbreak and tragedy. While the circumstances around them change, they always make time for each other. Throughout a decade in their lives, … Continue reading
Small Life, Slow Life: What It’s Really Like to Get Your Ex Back (Hint: It’s Not What You Think).
You won’t trust him. Every time she’s a little quiet, you’ll panic that something is wrong and she’s leaving again. You’ll be extremely suspicious of anyone who texts him. Any happy moment or memory she shares from the time you were apart will make you feel jealous and threatened. He’ll know he needs to earn … Continue reading
