When the toxic in your life isn’t a chemical

As we grow and mature, we stumble through toxic relationships, toxic jobs, toxic family members, toxic self-talk, toxic food for our bodies, toxic chemicals used in our households, and more. But the true beauty comes when we emerge out of the other side of the heaviest parts of that growth.

Dear Pain…

A sort of love letter to pain — my gratitude to learning strength, grace, and humility.

A Throwback Get To Know Me

Let’s throw it back to the early days of blogging with a fun Q&A blog survey to get to know me.

Real Talk: The Coron-Anxiety

Getting real around here to talk about mental health and coronavirus anxiety.

No Spring Chicken

I’m no spring chicken. The same arthritis that ate up my left hip that finally got replaced hasn’t stopped there… And touring is a lot of work. I’m impressed when I see people like Eric Clapton out there. Gee whiz, Eric, give me a… Continue Reading “No Spring Chicken”

Werk, Werk, Werk, Werk, Werk.

This is a little bit of a tough blog post for me to write: I am not the most successful at workplace or professional self-care (full disclaimer: that’s probably putting it lightly).

I’m grateful to have a stable job; I’m grateful for my wonderful health insurance; I’m grateful for flexibility and understanding leaders and coworkers; I’m grateful to be able to do what I love every day.

A Health Update: Off Meds

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a true health update here. However, while a great deal has happened, there are still no answers or conclusions to share with everyone.
