Adaptation

I find it interesting to look back and recall how I felt in the past, compared to the present. Sometimes that is painful and sometimes it feels good. Today is one of those days that I feel “good” and know that looking back, I can remember times when it didn’t – and for that I […]

Oops, I did it again!

Dry January – Week 1 Recap

#newyearnewme…amiright? No, but in all seriousness, I do truly want to make a serious go of “Dry January” for 2021. I did well in 2020, but didn’t finish my month completely free of alcohol (read about it here). I wanted to chronicle the 2021 efforts a bit more, so here we are. Side note, I […]

The Work Behind the Wins

I am certain we have all had moments in life where we have compared ourselves to other people. I know certainly that I have compared, felt envious, jealous, or thought “I wish I was so lucky”. As of late, I have felt more and more grounded in my own actions, and accomplishments, and with that […]
