One Word: HOPE

If you’ve been around the blogosphere or on social media the past few weeks, you’ve probably seen people talking about picking their “one word” for the year. The idea is that instead of setting goals or making resolutions, you pick one word to focus on as the theme that will guide your year. I still […]

How To Vs Me Too

I took a writing course earlier this year that was called “Find Your Writing Voice.” It was great and I loved it. We explored the voices of our favorite writers, created profiles of our intended audiences and narrowed in on our statement of intent, or the focus of our writing. But somewhere along the way […]

Coming to Terms with “My Thing”

I have a confession: I want to do it all. I look around at my friends and I am very jealous of the awesome things that they do—whether it’s selling their cute handmade items on Etsy, getting their artwork featured in a gallery, making an income by re-selling items online, pursuing photography…whatever it is they […]

Tidying Up My Life

The Joy of Nothing

Tomorrow begins my last week of work. Since resigning from my job I’ve had a lot of people ask how I will be spending my time once I am no longer working. I’ve also heard a lot of people say they wouldn’t be able to do it; they would get bored after one or two weeks […]

A New Season

Not too long ago I wrote about the different Seasons of Life. Shortly after that, I entered a new season, as I submitted notice of resignation from my job at the college. It’s an amazing job with wonderful benefits and even better co-workers, which made it a very bittersweet decision. But it was a year in […]

A Field Trip to Taste and See

I went on a field trip this weekend. It was another assignment for the writing class I’m taking. Writer’s block is something that strikes unannounced, and good writers need to know how to beat it. This exercise was intended to get our creative juices flowing, but for me it was so much more. We were […]
