In yoga, we talk a lot about a sense of just “being,” of just being present in the moment. Letting the thoughts and emotions rise up and fall like waves against the shore. And not having stories or expectations about the moment, but just observing. Setting a writing intention is […]
My parents are downsizing and selling the house I lived in from ages ~12-20 (although I was mostly at college for the last 3 years of it). So, Terry was all, “MEH YOU NEED TO CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET!”
And I was all, “Gull Mah, just get rid of it, yo.”
Thanks to a childhood of bullying, I’ve got a predisposition to thinking that everyone secretly hates me. I’m also rarely honest with people – including and especially myself. But there’s a small group of people (read: less than 5) who I consider my “circle of trust,” my people to whom […]
At my age, all of my girlfriends have babies and boys. (That is, they’re all married and pregnant)
Five years ago, I thought at 28, I’d be married to my ex and preggo with my first kid. I was so sure that’s what I wanted, because it was what everyone else […]
I admit it: I have a fear of running.
This is an odd statement to say, considering I’ve run 5 half marathons, 2 full marathons, and countless 5ks and 10ks and 10 milers.
But running causes me severe anxiety.

I had a bit of a reversion today in the form of a panic attack. Full-blown, “Oh-my-god-I-can’t-breathe” panic attack. And I could not figure out what was bothering me.
Yeah, that’s right. I can have a panic attack and analyze it at the same time. Because I am batshit crazy #duh.
You guys, I’m starting a publishing company.

There’s a bunch of reasons for it: separating my personal taxes from my business tax, more legitimacy for my books, a new tag line (“Light up your world.”) It will allow me to file all the necessary sales tax paperwork […]
I’ve decided I want to start living intentionally. What does that mean, exactly? I’m on a work-related travel back to the gulf coast, around 2 hours from my parent’s house. It’s fantastic, and hopefully may turn into something more permanent.
It’s funny because I can see glimpses of what my life […]
I come from an abnormally large family that I am actually ridiculously close with. My mom’s side of the family numbers around 35 folks between first and second cousins and children of my cousins that are more like my siblings and nieces and nephews. My dad had 8 brothers and sisters, and […]
