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. 🍂
I've come to the recent realization that I don't know who I've become. Over the last few years since separating myself from my ex-husband, I realized I had lost myself.

I know, I know there are others that have it WORSE then I do. I'm beyond grateful to have them … Continue reading Stress: Part III

Perhaps in time my desire for training and teaching will come back. For now I just want to focus on the most … Continue reading Impulse. 🌿
At the end of this month, I will be leaving the fitness industry. To be honest, it just does not align with my current path of life. It's been a wonderful 10 + years but it's time. I don't know where life will take me yet but all I know is this feels right and … Continue reading It’s Time.
It's been a while since I've done one of these posts. I figured, since I'm focusing on a "low buy July," I might as well share what I spend in a week being a bit more mindful of my spending. Let's jump right into it, shall we? Monday: $0As I mentioned in THIS post, I'm … Continue reading What I Spend In A Week.
