Working for Social Cap


My new professional life is in full swing.  I am so so grateful to start every day brewing a cup of fab and fierceness, getting into the office (across from my bedroom), checking the list made the end of day before for organized reference on a new morning, and grinding on multiple projects because if I or Hunter doesn't who's going to do it??? Life of a small business owner and I wouldn't change it for a minute!

We are growing and sorting what works, what can use improvement, we hustle and flow.  It's the stuff dreams are made of honestly.  I don't take it for granted and recognize that I've been working towards this my entire working career and for that I am so appreciative.

This far in my life, my professional background is in hospitality, higher education, editorial journalism, and corporate communications.  I value these experiences and industries tremendously but I gotta say, I will work 80 hours a week for ourselves instead of 40 for another.  Gladly.  I'm still doing so much of what I've been doing for others and their vision but now it's for my own clients and my own brand.

Let me be clear, working for myself is no easy fest.  There is stress and anxiety and all that, but my lord, it is a different kind. It's a better kind, the kind I imagine you should have as an entrepreneur and as a person.  My biggest thing is to stay focused and as long as my excitement outweighs my fear I'll sleep well.

Ok, well that's enough here. Got to get back to there.

Talk soon, stay creative,
Megan

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…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
