My Failure Plan

It was Disney Princess Marathon or bust! The very first time ever decided to run I managed about 3 minutes then wanted to throw up. That didn’t seem like a very good sign. According to my Disney Princess Marathon guide I was still supposed to go another 17 minutes. I walked for about 10 then … Continue reading My Failure Plan

They’re going to judge you anyway…

Judgment. Everyone does it which means everyone is subject to it. This was a paralyzing fear I had/have. When I was much younger I would do whatever made me happy and was fun. I was also 10.

Dear mom who spilled her guts out to me by the pool last night:

Thank you. I can't even imagine how difficult it must have been for you to keep those feelings bottled up that you'd share tears, fears, and secrets to a stranger. I am thankful that I walked over to you even though it was just to introduce myself since our kids started to play together and … Continue reading Dear mom who spilled her guts out to me by the pool last night:

Let’s just get to the good stuff

This is my very first post. I find it to be just as difficult as it is to start any new journal so I will start with how I got here. You. Yes, you. Whoever is reading this first post is someone I know personally. Eventually ( see that bold statement I just made?) it … Continue reading Let’s just get to the good stuff
