I was tagged in a Seven-Day Positivity Challenge from my friend Evann. I usually don’t do posts like this, ones that are a recap/reflection of the past week, but I welcomed the challenge. It’s simple; for one week, share three positive things (big or small) that happened that day. I tried to capture moments from all my various daily endeavors as well as some of the unique events.
We are not meant to percolate.
I spend way too long working on introductions to my posts. Not today. I’ll get to the point. [Read more…]
Who doesn’t love visiting an ice cream shop? Well, I guess people who don’t love ice cream… Weirdos. I enjoy ice cream, and it doesn’t get much better than scoops of frozen deliciousness close enough to the ocean that you can smell the salt water mingling with the wafts of creamy yummy things. I went inside the shop to get ice cream; I left inspired about life. [Read more…]
I’ve tried so hard not to write this post. I don’t want to write this post. I wish this post wasn’t happening. But this is my life. This is my journey. This is my honesty and my outlet. I’ve tried to write about anything else… but it isn’t working. So I’m going to write about the one constant thing that’s on my mind lately. [Read more…]
Hello! I’ve decided I’m tired of being the

I’ve asked you guys on social media to come up with some questions, and you did! I’ve also added some of my own that you may or may not find interesting. Hopefully you do! These answers are 100% truth. If you want to know anything more, just ask!
Yesterday I got to celebrate the birthday of my favorite guy in the world, my Dad. He’s the man and there is literally nothing he can’t do. I don’t even need a backup person to go to for advice or help because Dad is a one stop shop. We broke out a bottle of Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve whiskey and enjoyed a glass. Anything finely crafted makes you savor the process that it took to create. The whiskey was… delicious. The time spent with my Dad, however, was even more succulent. [Read more…]
How do you measure a man? How do you weigh a woman’s worth? Is it the deeds we do, the stuff we save, the places we pray, or the professions we practice? Can you quantify the quality of a gym/box? We are at times so obsessed with leaderboards in CrossFit – who is leading in life? Does placing a value of worth on a life or WOD have anything to do with each other? Am I going to do anything besides ask questions this post?
Yes. Or at least I’m going to try. [Read more…]
If I had a dollar for every person that journeyed to the altar of change, I’d have lots of dollars. New Year’s resolutions. Spring cleaning. Giving up something for Lent. Why, when so many of us embark on the pilgrimage to change, do we remain so stagnate? Is it a lack of effort? Perhaps you simply can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Or do we just have majorly crappy goal setting skills?
