Ding!

Sometimes we have to use “reverse principles” in order to break a bad habit. One of the ideas that James Clear writes about in his book Atomic Habits  was the importance of not just forming new/good habits – but actions must be consciously taken to break old/bad habits that don’t serve our identity.

Little Boxes

Recently, I was thrown a bit of a curve ball, which in turn landed me in a situation I’m not all too familiar with…being “the other woman.” Who knew?

Running

Some people find running to be a momentary way to clear their head. Others call upon running only when they want to escape a particular situation or person. Yet others seem to run in circles with no real destination, but is running really a thing to be so frowned upon? YES, emphatically, I agree that […]
