#whereivebeen

I've lost my lifestyle blogging voice lately.  I've been screeching loud using my creative, editing, project planning and organizing voices though.  That's right, life of a business owner.  A new business owner.  Dream big!


I sat down to write this post 3 times before these particular words came to me.  It occurred that I missed this space and needed to push through whatever block I've formed for it.  It feels nice this time stuck and I managed to say something.


I have been keeping insanely busy with my regular full time job and my own business's happenings so I've been finding myself keeping other areas of my life incredibly simple.  Clean eating is a wonderful thing for this very reason.  It's easier than I ever thought and does amazing things for a person.  I also have been sleeping in once a week.  Some way, some how.  Sleep is so so good for a person and rejuvenates like no other.  These are proving to be ways that work for me to keep sane when the rest of the time I am running around like a goose for her geese.


Some things I'm loving lately:

-This as my background pic. It says fall, yummy, and gives me happy vibes.


-Strength training as I go. Finding ways in daily life to incorporate little practices.  It's possible weird but I find it easier to find small ways to turn a house chore into repetitions.

-Turning 30 so soon!  What a whirlwind and what a privilege.  Aging is a powerful opportunity to reflect and celebrate.

-Running when I can.  I feel stronger every chance I get to practice.

-Crock pot meals!  I got a new crockpot and am thrilled to use it.  Chicken tacos are on the current list.

-Thanksgiving plans.  We will be spending our time for turkey and grace in Alabama at my man's grandma's house.  Tons of family will be corralling from here, there, and every where to come together.  The house is a beautiful custom designed rustic style home on a large plot of land.  I'm already planning my outfit details around cozy cute flannels and the perfect black leggings and have my eyes on a certain type of boot I'll need to fetch.

-Fall TV.

-Temperature under 85.  Any temp lower than that is a celebration and is practically billowing, color changing trees here in FL.

That's all for now.  I'll be back.  I always am.

Until 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…

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…
