Happy New Year's Eve eve!

With another year pretty much behind us, and the renewal of my domain name for this here space on the interwbez, I am feeling all kinds of reflective. For starters, I am incredibly baffled how yet another year has come and gone so quickly. Yes, it's the same amount of time as all previous years, minus leap years, but 2014 feels like a blur.

I definitely grew this year in terms of being realistic. I am a dreamer, and I long for dreams to come true. What I usually struggle with though, is the time leading up to making a dream come true. I am impatient and hasty at times, while contemplative and indecisive too. I hope to re-purpose these qualities into more productive versions of themselves during the next year.

I am quite excited for 2015. I've spent time reflecting and evaluating what worked and what didn't this past year, to prepare for the new. And I believe if you can identify your own key components, you are destined for goodness. Now among so many things that made 2014 awesome, allow me to share...

A few of my Favorite 2014 Moments::
-Graduating as Salutatorian with my MA in New Media Journalism
-Blogtober 2014
-Celebrating 7 years together with the love of my life
-Hosting our first real live Thanksgiving dinner at our home
-And anytime I laughed and/or smiled so big:








MARY MOTHER! That is not even half the fun times of this year. What a reminder to feel so incredibly thankful for living life!

And now may I present...

-My not so much resolutions, but rather Top 2015 Intentions List
:
-Be in the moment more-not always thinking of my next move
-Be off my phone at least 2 hours before bed
-Grow steadily with Yoga/Meditation practices
-Build our business with two of my very good friends
-Earn my social media certification
-Write a book over the span of 2015
-Travel more
-Cherish my lovey ones extra good


It's been great y'all. Talk to you next year!

Until we meet again,
M

  1. It was great catching up on your blog this weekend.

    Being OFF my phone aka disconnected is always a work in progress for me. When did we get so connected?!

    Love your goal of yoga/meditation. I was never a big believer until I joined a gym that was big into it and I am a lover now. :)

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:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
