Gratitude practice. 

Today was my last day of PT! Woooooo! I’ve been going for probably 8 weeks and I’ve worked really hard to follow instructions. But today I was deemed good to go! Yay! Last night I was running (love love love love) and listening to Kelly Roberts’ podcast, Run Selfie Repeat. In it she was discussing…

a year ago

A year ago (yesterday, 1/23/16), I wrote a letter to myself and gave it to Patrick with instructions. I told him to give it to me whenever I seemed like I was struggling or in need of some self-wisdom. He decided to give it to me yesterday, a year after I had written it. Lately…

year

there’s a lot happening this year. a lot. but I also feel at my most still and peaceful than I have in really long time. so bring it. “I know not all that may be coming, but but be what it will. I’ll go to it laughing.” “Three things in human life are important. The…

glorification of stress: a s/o to my fellow collegiate kids

^^yeah, what the heck is that about.  Here in college-land, hell week is upon us and finals are approaching. This is the time of year when students start (if they haven’t already been) pulling all-nighters, drinking coffee & redbull cocktails, taking focus-enhancing drugs that I never remember the name of, and ultimately making sure everyone…

a lil somethin from me to you

I feel like I’ve learned a lot lately. And no, not just tomorrow’s physiology exam that I crammed for today. In lieu of some long-winded essay about my thoughts, I’ll just give you this: stop forcing what you know won’t budge. relax and leave it to the wind. in some beautiful way, it works out. always….

note to me

“You don’t become brave from a lack of fear. You become brave by being really really afraid of things, but doing them anyway. My bravery is a spine made of more wishbone than backbone, an incessant need to shake the world instead of live in it.” Note to self (and therefore, all of you): There…

oh hi

HI IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME ultimately I’ve spent my time away from here trying to seek out inspiration, balance stillness and peace with work and school, and trying to seize the moment. life is cool. also still as confusing and unpredictable as ever, but that’s the best part! here’s to fridays and physiology…

an epiphany of sorts

Today I had somewhat of an epiphany, I think. I’ve been struggling with the thought that I typically care more about people than they care about me. Which probably sounds pretty self-deprecating, but it’s one of those nasty insecurities that I can’t ever shake entirely. Anytime that thought occurs to me I always find myself…

0:00:00.0

You know what’s absolutely crazy? The fact that we think we’ve all found absolution. We tell ourselves we know who we are. We know what we want to do with our lives. We know the type of person we want to marry. We know the general progression our life will follow. And I know I…

say it

Hi! I don’t know how to write this post. I love you. I say that to people a lot. And it means something different to me depending on who I’m talking to, but that by no means detracts from what it means in its entirety. And it doesn’t mean that I use it recklessly. It…

21

Hiiii! I turn 21 tomorrow! When I turned 19 I did something similar to this, but then forgot last year, so I’m bringing it back! I love love love birthdays for everyone. Another year of life! YES YES YES! I’m so happy to have you here! ANYWAY, 21 Things I Know To Be True Things…
