Self-care, yo.

Today I received some really good news. Like, turn-the-corner good news. And in celebration, I went out and got a pedicure. Pedicure was not the only option in this kind of case. Celebrations can include all kinds of things. Foods. Drinks. Sweets. You get the drift. But right now, I'm working on my self from... Continue Reading →

Pop

It's the sound you never, ever want to hear. I was exercising at home, running with high knees, when, POP went my calf. It was audible, and hit me like a sucker punch in the gut. Joints go pop, knees go pop, muscles should certainly not go pop. But there I was, sitting on the... Continue Reading →

Fret

Fret: to worry, be anxious, feel uneasy, be distressed, be upset, a state of anxiety or worry Twenty-five days ago I left my full-time job. These past weeks have felt foreign in a way that seems both normal and absolutely surreal. When I worked a full (overfull, really) schedule, there was always that escapist part... Continue Reading →

Holding space

I'll confess: my life circumstances have a direct effect on my publishing. Sometimes when things are in process that I can't talk about, I don't write for fear of tipping hands that can't afford to be tipped. I'm fully human, which means that even though we live in a compartmentalized fashion, tending and grooming our... Continue Reading →

This was the pancetta…

I was cooking a great recipe for Sausage Kale Sweet Potato soup, and I thought, "Wouldn't it be fun to take pictures along the process?" Here's the pancetta, here goes the sausage, and on through the process.... Continue Reading →

Bathing Supta Baddha Konasana

This weekend found me holding space for several issues in several roles (no, we're not talking about those today), and it came at a cost. I'm tired. I'm at the end of myself. So I pulled out my list and opted to take care of me. First, alone time. There was too much out and... Continue Reading →

Saturday morning

Monday through Friday, I hustle. I #Werk. I roll myself out of bed before the rest of my people, dress like the #BossLady that I am, and walk my high-heeled self out the door to hit the office. And once I'm there, it's nonstop. Email. Phone calls. Meetings. Instant Messages. Text Messages. Conference calls. GoToMeetings.... Continue Reading →

Off the top

I don't know about you, but today for me was a full day. You know the ones, where you get pivots and unexpected shifts which can be challenging to navigate. I came home to find that all my peoples had similar days. There were tears, disappointments, boundary-drawing (no, you cannot play Xbox when you are... Continue Reading →
