It feels so great writing a blog post again! For the past few months, I've been juggling with exhaustion and discouragement.

I tried to implement my morning … Continue reading There is nothing magic about self-care
I know the feelings. I've felt them again and again and again. Actually, I'm feeling them right now. Feeling discouraged. Feeling overwhelmed. Feeling like I won't make it. Feeling like I'm not enough and never will be. Feeling like giving up. But you know what? These feelings are a lie, a BIG lie. I AM enough I CAN do … Continue reading Soar, don’t creep
More and more, I realize I need to be intentional about what I do and don’t do in order to make room for the people and things that matter. I often, make this, always feel like I have too many things I want/need to do and never enough time to do it all. It leaves me … Continue reading February – The month of routines and art quotes

Last week, I had to remind myself of that numerous times. I had … Continue reading The importance of taking one thing at a time
I believe in striving for excellence, not perfection. This way, we do the best we can with what we have and surpass ourselves time after time without losing hope. I also remind myself that my whole life is a journey. There is no goal I will ever accomplish completely. This, to me, is a great relief. … Continue reading Perfection will always be out of my grasp
The biggest struggle in my life right now is self-care. Being a working mom, I want to be able to do it all : play with the Peanut, keep a tidy home, feed my family well, spend time with the boyfriend and with family and friends, create, read, write, watch movies, and the list goes on. … Continue reading The self-care struggle is real
The first week of the year is behind me and BOY am I proud of myself! Not only was I able to follow my January Goals (you can read about it here) but I was able to implement simple changes to make my life and that of my family simpler and greener. Setting just a few … Continue reading Setting goals makes for a rested mind
