Anti-Racism Journey and Resources

Anti-Racism Journey and Resources

In February I joined a thought work book club and where we read Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. While reading this book we did the values activity as a group. During this exercise you select all the values that apply to you and categorize them into your top 2 main values. My top two values were connection and growth, but one value I was reminded of during this process was my value for equality. By focusing on survival and controlling…

Growth During Isolation

Growth During Isolation

It’s been a few months since I last posted on my blog, but these are not normal times we are living in. This pandemic and accompanied isolation has given each of us more time with our thoughts and how we are living our lives. In this space I’ve been taking time to learn, grow, and do a lot of inner work. I have been slowly but surely working toward my truth, seeing the most impact in the last few years….

Perfectionist Fantasy During Social Isolation

Perfectionist Fantasy During Social Isolation

It is April 2020 and we are experiencing a global pandemic. Where I live in Utah we also experienced our first large earthquake in mid-March with well over 200 aftershocks that we are winding down from. To slow the spread of the virus many people have been forced to stay home. Individuals have lost their job, are forced to not go in, or if possible work from home with the exception of front line health care workers, grocery store employees,…

Morning Pages and Free Template

I’ve talked a few times about morning rhythms and journaling, and over the past few years, my morning rhythm has changed, but a practice that has made life easier each day is journaling.

10 Ways to add Hygge to Winter

We are well into Winter with mid-February, and now is a great reminder on how to be intentional this season. I know by this point if you live in a location that has snow you may be ready for Spring, but we still have some time left this season and a few snowstorms to see. This is usually the most difficult time of year for me to enjoy the weather, but I am working on being more intentional overall and…

How To Create A Habit And Achieve Your Goals

How To Create A Habit And Achieve Your Goals

It’s the new year, and many people are working toward a new goal or a habit they are trying to implement. Often, we get overwhelmed with the number of goals we give ourselves each January. By providing so many options, we tend not to achieve what we set out to do. To alleviate this, you should create a habit instead. I know the idea of creating a habit can be both exciting and a bit boring. We tend to think…

10 Ways to Add Hygge to Autumn

We are well into autumn with the start of November, and now is a great reminder on how to be intentional this season. Fall tends to be the easiest Hygge season for me as it is a time of year to wear your cozy clothes and watch the leaves fall. Once I discovered the concept of Hygge, I realized I had unknowingly embraced this concept every September by rereading my favorite book series, eating pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, and drinking…

1.5 Years into Minimalism

It’s been one amazing year and a half since I started this journey. I have grown so much since my last update at year one.

Each of these items happened because of my journey into minimalism. I set up a boundary with my brother for him to move out of our house. After a…

How Finding My Values Helped Me

val·ue/ˈvalyo͞o/ noun plural noun: values a person’s principles or standards of behavior; one’s judgment of what is important in life. In 2017 I was essentially just going day by day and was completely uninspired. I felt like a zombie who was just here for the ride. If this sounds familiar to you then discovering your values and living them daily will help you get out of that rut. In February 2018 right after I finished school I felt completely lost, I…
