It’s Right There

I’m in the kitchen, above the sink, washing my hands and I turn around to reach for the paper towel. But I saw none in the usual place, I assumed there was none left. Thoughts began to fill my head, “I hate when we run out.” Now I’m walking feverishly throughout the house looking forContinue reading “It’s Right There”

Blogging Update…

People are still asking me why I don’t blog as often as I used to. My response is always paused because there are many factors. The major one is time of course. But all of the factors, time included, are really just excuses. It comes down to discipline and habitual effort. I just haven’t caughtContinue reading “Blogging Update…”

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

  I’ve been discussing my most recent decisions with family, friends and colleagues. Being the caring, loving and most certainly opinionated people that they are; I’ve heard things that are warranted and things that I could have gone without hearing. Just in case you haven’t read my most recent post, I’ll update you a bit.Continue reading “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions”

Can’t Walk, Bike?

Last Wednesday, I could not get out of bed. I was tired, lethargic, just out of it. I had the day off so I slept most of the day away. I couldn’t even make it to the gym, in fact, I hadn’t worked out since the Saturday prior. Might not seem like a big deal,Continue reading “Can’t Walk, Bike?”

I’m Not Sure…

  I was asked recently what my goals were. I said repeatedly, “my goal is to be happy.” I know that might sound simplistic but that is exactly what I hope for happiness and peace of mind. I think last year, I wrote about why I think peace of mind is foundational. It doesn’t preventContinue reading “I’m Not Sure…”

Subway Chronicles, Part 2

I made my way back to NYC the other day. I had this brilliant idea to commute during rush hour. Let’s just be clear that’s all the way from Poughkeepsie, NY to Park Slope, Brooklyn at peak time! I make it to the Metro North train leaving Poughkeepsie with literally a minute to spare becauseContinue reading “Subway Chronicles, Part 2”

I’m a mess right now, upside down

I’m so sick of being sick. This week has been a trying one for me, from dizzy spells to now a stomach bug. I could tell you where I’m writing this from but that might be TMI. It seems that I can’t catch a break. I was talking to a few friends; We were doingContinue reading “I’m a mess right now, upside down”

There Is No Going Back

  I had a photo shoot over the weekend. Minutes before we left for the shoot, I told my roommate, I couldn’t do it. I understood how important it was to me and this “brand” that we are creating but I felt terribly insecure. How do you allow yourself to be in front of aContinue reading “There Is No Going Back”

Just Keep Swimming

I’ve spoken a lot about my workouts and the benefits of exercise. It has been my best friend throughout this process. I may struggle with my eating habits. But I’m very committed to my fitness. I work out five days a week. It’s not always consecutive, my days off during the week are dependent onContinue reading “Just Keep Swimming”

Open Minded?

        I was in the art store with my roommate yesterday. While she was debating between colors and trying to break into the cage with the spray paints, I wondered off. Walking aisle to aisle, I was captivated by creativity but still uninterested because this isn’t my medium. As fate would haveContinue reading “Open Minded?”
