The fall

That lower-case 'f' is on purpose. We're not talking a season here, we're talking an experience. A not-awesome experience. On a quick decision, I signed up for a half marathon next July. Awesome. No problem. I'm out of shape, but this is something I've done before, so it feels like a doable goal, something to... Continue Reading →

Passion: 2

Okay, now we've discovered something you are passionate about - hooray! But Caryn, why did you ask us to sit with it for a minute? I'm glad you asked! If you're anything like me, it can take a moment of reflection to determine if something truly is mine, or if it's something I have assumed... Continue Reading →

Passion

A few weeks ago, I asked all of you what you wanted to hear about, and the topic of passion came up. Specifically, finding passion again.

I get the fear of failure, the sting of being wrong, of somehow creating an unsolvable mess, especially in the professional realm. We as... Continue Reading →

We have recently moved. And when I say "recently," please understand that this has been a process that started in February, capped with nearly a month of transitional housing. All along the way, people have asked that dreaded question: "Are you excited?" They have bright, wide eyes and good intentions. They are usually smiling. And... Continue Reading →

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 →
