Staying on Track with Time and Money

Howdy! Over the years, I’ve had people comment positively on my money habits. After talking to a coworker the other day about finances, I had the idea to share what I do with others. Beyond that, though, I’ve been doing my best to be more on top of my time and making sure I’m getting…

Hands On: Home, Health, and Education

January has been here and gone and oh, what a month it’s been! I’ll do you all a favor and save you from the personal matters that were included in this month. Many tears were shed. Instead, I want to focus on something positive. I’ve heard someone mention time and time again that something changes…

New Year, Same Consistently Evolving Me

A new year is upon us and, if you’re like me, you don’t believe that January 1st magically makes you a better or more motivated person, just like your birthday doesn’t make you feel any older or wiser. Everything is always achieved gradually. But perhaps it is the new year, the recent passing of my…

Out Of Sight, But In My Mind

I was off to a quick start with my reading journey and finished my second book, The Lakota Way, within days of finishing Anything. I picked up my third book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle before the holiday craziness really kicked in and, if time permits, I’ll have a couple more book reviews up within a week…

Books: 40 by 30

As I had mentioned in my last blog post, one of the things I’d like to do before I’m 30 is read 40 books. I decided I want to document each book I read in a running list that can be easily referenced whenever. For that reason, this post will have a permanent spot in…

30 Things To Do Before I’m 30

My birthday recently passed and if you’ve been following for over a year, you know that I make a yearly list of things to accomplish during that new age (previous ones here and here). This year should be 27 things to do while I’m 27, however, I didn’t do so great on crossing things off…

Let’s Talk About Therapy

As I recently stated, I started going to therapy. My decision to be open about going to therapy isn’t a ploy to gain concern of my well-being, but to hopefully help others understand that you don’t have to be broken to be in therapy. We will go to a doctor for anything from something acute…

Unearthing Peace

I went hiking yesterday for the first time in over a year. I was so excited about it that I started to think about everything that could go wrong to ruin it. Who’s been there? I’m happy to report that nothing went wrong. However, I struggled a lot on the hike. No matter how out…

Soul Season

“Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have.” -Unknown We’re a few days out from the official beginning of fall and, while it’s not my favorite season, there’s something about this time of year that always makes me feel very connected to myself. Perhaps it’s because…

Color Changing Sensory Bottles

Woohoo! I’m so excited to be sharing my first activity and learning related post. This one is a relatively easy DIY project that children can help with. It might be best if you handle dyeing the baby oil though. It can get a little messy. There are several how-to tutorials out there for these and…
