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”

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”

Something I was actually surprised about once I overcame my battle with depression was the feeling of joy. It wasn’t something I was familiar with or new how to identify. It made me feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. I didn’t know how to interpret it and thought it was surely the calm before the storm. Surely something awful was about to happen and I was too distracted to see it coming. Continue reading “Cultivating Joy”
After I climbed out of the pit of despair I had been living in for so long, I began to repair the relationship I had with myself. It had been a long time since I saw good things in myself but I slowly started to recognize them. Eventually, I was able to discover my talents and gifts. They hadn’t been used in quite some time so I had to dust them off and give myself time to remember how to use them. Once I did, it was incredibly invigorating! Continue reading “Gifts & Giving”
This goes out to all of you who need a gentle reminder that results aren’t always instant. In a world of instant gratification, it can be hard to grind every day and not see the results. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. The process reminds me of plants. When my daughter was in 1st grade, we did a project where we planted seeds inside ziplock bags and watched them grow. Had we planted them outside, we wouldn’t have been able to see all that was going on! Continue reading “The Grind, Seeds, & Patience”
Today was one of those days that I just needed to connect with myself. I asked my husband to get the girls ready and go out for a long Daddy daughter day. By 11 am I had the house to myself! Continue reading “Connection, Nurture & Soul”
I found this talk very interesting. The speaker, Esther Perel touches on some very interesting points about desire in a relationship. She mentions that any place that romanticism touches, there’s a crisis of desire. I had to watch this a few times because there are so many things to reflect on, I couldn’t take it all in at once. The question I present to you from this video is Continue reading “Love, Desire & Connection”
