Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." - Gloria Steinem

I have been in a funk lately. I think it's a combo of me getting sick right in the smack dab middle of graduating(and still bouncing back in some ways) and also the void I feel from being done with something I so intently focused my life on for the last year.

I am so happy to be done, yes, but I knew I would feel a loss from the experience being complete. I am having a hard time honestly. New projects are under way but I'm not as dedicated as I'd like to be yet. I'm trying to take advantage of having more free time and relax but it is harder than I realized it would be. I'm at a turning point, waiting to get off this page and on to the next...

How does one truly refocus and re-purpose their direction when one chapter closes? We all hear the messages to feel inspired; we're told to be aware of doors closing and opening constantly and one of my favorite movies offers a really great quote that I'm constantly referring to:
Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most." -Hope Floats

How true this rings right now. It's just the initial hurdle of transition that I'm facing. I am constantly dreaming and scheming a next great adventure. I feel so ready to launch tons but also I feel overwhelmed on where to start at times. My ambition is at a high level but fatigue is also present. It's tricky right now being ready to jump but stumbling to make the move.

I will get moving, but I just wanted to put this our there for anyone who may need to be reminded that dreaming is in fact a form of planning. And breaks are needed for recharging. We all get where we're going and the pace at which we do it is not always a race. As my forever icon Carrie Bradshaw once stated, it's time to "breathe and reboot."


Til we meet again,

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…

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:
