I didn't expect to get so much joy from this book. A Monk's Guide to a Clean House and Mind by Shoukei Matsumoto was in my "recommended for you" after reading Don't Worry: 48 Lessons on Relieving Anxiety from a Zen Buddhist Monk by Shunmyo Masuno (which I will talk about a smidge next week). … Continue reading Cleaning for the Heart + Mind. 🌿

3 Ways I’m Creating Balance.
As I pick up more shifts and add back more classes, I've been trying to create a better balance for myself during the week. Not only for myself but for the kids as well. I reached my point of burn out and I'm slowly trying to recover. I started "really" picking things back up the … Continue reading 3 Ways I’m Creating Balance.
Burnt Out. 🌿
Yet again, I am burnt out. My ADHD brain doesn't know when to say no... but it has been better. Back in the day, pre-diagnosis, I would have said YES to everything. So 100% of things. Now I'm between 50-60% saying "YES" to what I should probably say no to. Not bad, but still a … Continue reading Burnt Out. 🌿
Almost 35. 🌻
I'm just about four months from turning 35. I don't know why it feels like such a midlife crisis to me. So please just bear with me until June. I won't go back into it ALL (you can read more on that jist HERE), but there have been quite a lot of changes that … Continue reading Almost 35. 🌻
“Hi, It’s Me.” 🌿
As per the "norm" as of late, I didn't know what to write. I try to post weekly, but this past weekend a lot happened in my overall life [especially with work]. I'll discuss more details perhaps in another post but for now I just wanted to say that I am drained. Going from having … Continue reading “Hi, It’s Me.” 🌿

End of 2022 In Books.
As we are almost approaching the new year, I wanted to end with some book recommendations. Some of these books are more for personal development, but a good chunk are for fun and sharing what really interests me without fear of being judged.It's why I changed my blog name in the first place; I wanted to … Continue reading End of 2022 In Books.
Minimalist[ish] Workout Equipment
If we are being honest, the most "minimalist" equipment would just be yourself. Maybe yourself and a mat? Over the past couple of months of taking down my workouts and focusing on low impact workouts, I not only look better, but feel better in my body and joints. I did a previous post back in … Continue reading Minimalist[ish] Workout Equipment
Navigating Holidays; Divorced. 🌿
I'll admit I'm a bit of a scrooge during the holidays.Over the past couple of years, I haven't become better about the holidays. But for myself, where I don't have the kids on whole days of holidays (we split the day itself in half) I just feel empty sometimes. A bit before Thanksgiving, I was … Continue reading Navigating Holidays; Divorced. 🌿
Letting Go. 🍂
Why was I holding on so long? As the leaves let go of the trees and the earth where I live prepares for winter, I've been finding myself letting go of who I've become over the last 10 (or so) years. When I agreed to work a couple of Saturday shifts a month at the … Continue reading Letting Go. 🍂
