Sometimes I Choose Myself Over My Kids

It’s okay, at one point I would have gasped too. We aren’t ever supposed to choose ourselves over our children – once we become parents, THEY become the priority. I get it, I really do, and my children are absolutely my highest priority. Always have been, always will be.  But I have learned that sometimes I get to matter too, in some cases, even more. Here are some ways I’ve chosen myself over them: Becoming an animal-free home Although becoming…

Why I Don’t Care If There Is a God

This isn’t what you might think. This isn’t some public declaration to discredit God or those who believe in Him. Stay with me here because it’s not about that.  I want to talk about the way we treat people, the words we use and our actions. The reasons we are who we are….who we say we are and who we want to be, and why these things are important. Because you see, I don’t believe God can or should be…

Client Feedback: Why Hailey is Rad!

Hailey genuinely cares about me and loves me as a person. She has helped me through my separation and divorce, the transition back to single life, through relationships, and the most important … she helped heal and change my heart to the point where I felt I was worth something and that I am here for a reason. The love and care she showed me changed my heart at the time I needed it the most. She didn’t know I…

How I’ve Simplified Using My Three Rules For Gifting

I’ve done it before, and I’m sure you have too. Bought things and then spent time regretting the increase of STUFF and MESS. It never brought us more joy and it certainly didn’t bring us more peace, so why did I do it? Several years ago, I clued in that for my daughter GETTING something was more important to her than HAVING it. In the store, she loved having something bought for her and then promptly forgot all about it once home.…

There Is No Such Thing As Balance

Balance.  The ultimate quest. The one thing we all seem to be in pursuit of. And something that’s been on my mind often, moreso since going back to work just over 5 years ago. Finding balance between the need to do things and the want to do things, and how I actually view the things in my life in terms of these two categories. For the past few years specifically, I’ve considered each opportunity with one specific phrase, What Do…

Finding Gratitude Amidst The Heartbreak

Last summer, while on our way back from a friend’s house, this sweet boy initiated a conversation that both warmed and broke my heart all at once. He talked about all the people and living things we’d lost over the years (his grandpa 8 years ago, our cat Mr. Bella about 7 years previous, my dad almost in early 2017, and of course more recently our original family unit plus our pets Axel, Salem, and now Malibu too). We held hands…

23andMe ~ My Life Upside Down

It was the only thing I wanted for Christmas, the DNA kit from 23and Me. I’ve always been curious about my heritage and now there’s a way to find out. But more than that, there’s even a way to be connected to others who share your same DNA. I personally know a few people (my mother included) who have discovered previously unknown family members as a result, which is so amazing though I often joke that their slogan could be:…

Ten Blessings From 2017

I’ve made no secret that 2017 was an incredibly difficult year for me and while I completely believe in being open about our struggles too, and will continue to be, I’m also a huge believer that gratitude and putting forth an energy of positivity is the real secret to happiness. So I’d like to take a minute and reflect on the past year with this in mind and bring you 10 blessings I received/experienced in 2017 {in no particulary order}:…

Wounded Healer ~ Finding My Passion As A Massage Therapist

I don’t get asked very often why I do what I do. People see it when they come to see me, they feel it. Not everyone can see themselves as a massage therapist and truth be told, 3+ years ago, I couldn’t either. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2014 and it rocked my world. I began to view health in a completely different way and found myself going more for more of a holistic route in healing. UC…
