A Letter to My Ex

To my ex, When you sent me the papers, I cried all night. It wasn’t like I hadn’t conciously made the decision. I think we were both in agreement on that. I think I cried because it was so final – so real. And…

Spain Update #9: Just Keep Trying

For awhile now, I’ve been beating myself up for not having every aspect of my life organized and together. I haven’t been focusing enough on school, or I need to apply more hours at my job – I need to walk my dogs more,…

2020: A Decade Worth of Reflection.

When I look at who I was ten years ago, I see a young, clueless girl. Always overstressed, I had to be perfect at everything. I had to get this new adulting thing down! Super responsible, always working really hard. I was too tough…

Journey Into Happiness: When I Lost My Older Sister

Damn it, what a year. I didn’t sleep. I didn’t want to eat. I didn’t feel a damn thing. I remember driving down country roads with my boyfriend (now husband), just looking out in silence. I didn’t care about any of it. I was…

Journey Into Happiness: Stop Being So Hard On Yourself

If you’re like me, you are super hard on yourself. You always want to be the best, do your best – and the truth is that it’s impossible to be perfect. When we aren’t perfect, it’s easy to beat ourselves up about things. But…

Journey into Happiness: Dealing with Disloyalty
