Community Question | Posting Schedule

I know there’s no shortage of expert advice out there for bloggers. One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to come up with a posting schedule. You want it to be something that works for you and something that you can deliver consistently. If you have one day to write, I suggest scheduling the posts for the week if it makes it easier than writing every day. Not only do you want to have fresh content on your blog regularly, but you want it to be quality content. Continue reading “Community Question | Posting Schedule”

Results Outweigh Discomfort

For the past year, I’ve been intentionally pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. I’ve been taking steps to turn my dreams into reality, building my business in a way that’s not conventional yet fits into my life and vision perfectly, and taking opportunities that make me nervous. Many times throughout the year, I’ve faced situations that made me feel uncomfortable; not only because I was taking chances. I was also in situations that challenged me to use my voice in a way I wasn’t used to.  Continue reading “Results Outweigh Discomfort”

Interview | Peace From Panic

I’m so excited to share an interview Jenny @peacefrompanic recently did with me via email. It was so much fun to connect with her. She had some really great questions and I enjoyed answering them. Be sure to leave some love on her blog. If you haven’t met her yet, she’s one of the first bloggers I connected with when I started blogging last year. She’s a kindred spirit that I’m grateful to have met. She blogs about mental health specifically how she helped her daughter manage panic attacks when she was growing up. She continues helping young people by speaking at schools about mental health awareness. Thank you for all that you do Jenny ❤ Continue reading “Interview | Peace From Panic”

Waldorf Education

This mama’s soul was set on fire a few days ago! Personally, I’m not a fan of conventional education systems. Too much value is placed on achievement, grades, and collective progress. Not enough value is placed on developing strategies and providing tools that will serve kids as they get older. Kids are taught with the intention of passing standardized tests. As a parent, I’m more interested in my children learning to utilize tools, come up with strategies, and work through processes in ways they can apply to any area of their lives. It’s my belief that school should be a place that helps children develop as individuals and supports their development to adapt to the real world. What I see in school is a place where children are generally expected to conform, do things the same way, and are measured by the results.  Continue reading “Waldorf Education”

Progress Over Perfection

Blog (1).png

I know the illusion of perfection is appealing. The thing is, perfection has a way of holding us back. It can make us feel like we can’t move forward until we’re “ready”. If we wait on being perfect, we’ll miss out on a lot of opportunities. Continue reading “Progress Over Perfection”

9 Lessons I’ve Learned in 9 Years of Marriage

Today marks my 9th year wedding anniversary! I’ll be the first to say that marriage is tough. It’s not like the romcoms that make it seem like this whimsical story of two people that meet and fit together perfectly. Even though it can be a challenge at times, it’s also pretty amazing. I’m so grateful for my partner in life and the relationship we’ve built. I thought I’d share 9 lessons I’ve learned in 9 years of marriage: Continue reading “9 Lessons I’ve Learned in 9 Years of Marriage”
