If we wait until we are ready, we'll be waiting the rest of our lives

I've set a challenge for my writer self, as discussed yesterday, and more specifically that challenge is to adhere to five posts a week. Of course there will be weeks that 3-4 will be the average and that's okay. It's simply a challenge to me, from me and I will aim to meet the bar I am setting as best I can.

I have set up a few themes for days I am at a loss for any other topic to cover. Call it the many writing practices I have gone through throughout my schooling for writing, but I often have found that a, dare I say, "restriction" actually pushes for more creativity.

Really, this is just to get me going on my consistent mojo. These will most def morph into something else but for now this is the blueprint for days when I want to write but need a little self push. Feel free to join in and use the prompts for any of your days:

Monday: If I could...this is where I challenge myself to be brave. Want to say something? Do something? Then get to it and write it out.

Tuesday: Day of Yum. This day is dedicated to the goodness of life and that is the art of eating, cooking, hosting, planning, meal prepping, etc, etc. A picture of a cupcake will suffice too.

Wednesday w/ a cherry on top: Share something that may just be small scale to me but makes the day extra gratifying. This is a good midweek reminder to be present and aware of the good in the world because quite honestly we got enough bad going on.

Thursday: Tell a Tale: This day is one to share something funny, quirky, completely fictitious, a story of sorts.

Friday: My fashion, my heart: I'd say I have a close relationship with fashion. I'm crazy about it; I like it even on the worst days; it gives me happiness. Really, we're committed to each other in a multitude of ways. We just get each other. So needless to say today is the day we shall be fashion focused around here.

To properly kick off the Wednesday prompt:

This Wednesday's cherry on top is green tea. The stuff is good, man. It rejuvenates my soul and is literally my life line these last few, freezing, very cold, Florida days. Here's to more cherries on top of good health!

Til we meet again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:



Until …
