No Great Story Ever Started with Someone Eating a Salad

I’ve been trying not to complain during the month of May. I realized that a lot of what I put out into the universe was along the lines of I’m tired, or I barely slept last night, or I am so busy at work or where am I going to find the time?! Then I…

Little by little

I watched a video recently where a woman talked about how you can tackle anything if you’re prepared and I sat there thinking, “Well, duh.” But then I stopped and thought about all the times I thought about doing something, and my brain told me, “No. That’s too hard; we can’t do it.” Laying the…

Life is weird. Life is crazy.

I read somewhere on the worldwide web that, “being totally busy is a wasteful way of living,” and it really stuck with me. Work has been crazy the last few weeks and I feel like I slipped into a routine of waking up before dawn, driving to work, working till the sunset and then driving…
