Grays & Torreys- My 2nd and 3rd 14er!

Last weekend, I finally completed a goal I have had for the past year…to hike another 14er! Colorado has 58 mountains that tower over 14,000 feet. We call them 14ers, and they provide a beautiful and worthy hiking/climbing challenge. If you want to read more about them, you can do so here: What are 14ers?Continue reading “Grays & Torreys- My 2nd and 3rd 14er!”

Shame on you, not-knower!

I have toiled with the idea of becoming a professional of just about every field I have been exposed to. I hear about something cool and spend way too much time writing my story in the future…as a preparation for future interviews or documentary films 😉 about my great success. My boyfriend and I wereContinue reading “Shame on you, not-knower!”

A Simple Salad and A Feral Cook

Adam and I decided to cook dinner together last night, which is something we just don’t do enough. We usually have a lot of fun and eat much healthier and more intentionally when we eat at home. I bought the cookbook Love and Lemons this weekend, so that inspired us to change our ways. Now,Continue reading “A Simple Salad and A Feral Cook”

Career Positivity

In an age of women stepping up in the career department and gaining confidence in unprecedented ways historically, I must admit I am not quite there. I suffer from quite the inferiority complex in my professional pursuits and dreams. I found a website that claims it can help people deal with this using the lawContinue reading “Career Positivity”

A Wanna Be

I am a “wanna be”. There are pretty specific requirements for such a role. Not be much of much. Have had potential at one point of life to be more. Not follow through. Not know how to follow through. Dream about being someone or something else. Repeat. This is the life of a wanna be,Continue reading “A Wanna Be”

This might be it.

At times, life feels devoid of purpose…a purpose-less life. I have heard people who recover from various life crisis, such as quitting a corporate job or selling a business, call it a purpose problem. A purpose problem seems to be there when you are crazy successful and you lose your way. Then, your story canContinue reading “This might be it.”

Day 50: That is a wrap?

Wow! Day 50 of #my500words….here we are. I don’t know if I want this challenge to end. While I have found it exhausting on busy days, it has been so enriching! It has forced me to put my crazy thoughts onto a “page”. And, this alone has been therapeutic…even when I wasn’t saying all thatContinue reading “Day 50: That is a wrap?”

Day 49: Pure Potentiality

I am 1 day from reaching my goal of 50 consecutive days of blogging 500 words! Wow. Once I complete this, I am going to (I think) take a little break and reevaluate what I want to do with this goal and this blog. But, I think it has been really helpful for me toContinue reading “Day 49: Pure Potentiality”

Day 48: Let go & let go & let go (repeat)

Yesterday I cried. I cried from what I assume was stress or a whole web of complicated feelings. My post from yesterday was not that well written or thought out…but it was full of feeling. I was bubbling over last night, but I couldn’t figure it out. I couldn’t express it. I have this frustration,Continue reading “Day 48: Let go & let go & let go (repeat)”

Day 47: Control and Love

Love and control…control and love. Two sides of the same coin? Or, are they just confused. Parents and children…children and parents. A confusing relationship that is so rich but is often fraught with frustration. Why is that? And, why do we try to control the lives of those we love the most. Is it fear?Continue reading “Day 47: Control and Love”
