Do You Need Rest?

I hate to admit it but my anxiety has been acting up quite a bit lately. Between balancing work stress, freelancing, blogging, yoga teacher training, and a social life, at times I feel like I’m trying to scoop water out of a boat with a hole in it. Something isn’t working.

While some of the stress is of a positive nature (hello YTT and the boy!), they still add to an already full bucket. I needed to figure out how to find the balance of them all and what I really need.

Top 10 Books I Read in 2017

With one of my goals for 2018 to be to read 52 books, I have been working on my list of books that I want to read to make sure I’m never at a loss of what to read next.

2018 Word of the Year

It’s hard to believe that the new year is here. To be expected, 2017 was full of ups and downs, though I’m so pleased and thankful that there are so many beautiful, fun, and exciting moments that overpower a lot of the negative ones, and I am really excited to see how 2018 stacks up and brings even more great things!

To be expected, a new year brings about a lot of reflection from the year past and planning and dreaming for the year ahead. While I’ll save you from the onslaught of thoughts that have been swirling in my mind the last few days (and weeks), I am a goal-oriented individual and as an obliger, I know the importance of sharing my goals with others as a form of accountability.
