About 2016

If I have to summarize the past three years of my life with a car analogy, I’d say 2013 was the big accident in which I totaled the car. 2014 was driving around in that car aimlessly and possibly off a cliff. 2015 was a more hopeful beginning of self-discovery and realizing that the car needs a lot of TLC before getting back on the road.

Why We Can’t Accept the Death of Jon Snow

Jon SnowAfter 5 seasons (or books) of enduring miserable winter, our beloved Jon’s journey has come to a dreadful end. As his Watch brothers stabbed him repeatedly, our hearts broke in a million pieces.

Crochet cute stuff? #iheartcrochet

I keep telling myself I need to find my passion and then everything will fall in place. (more…)

Instead I want to write about a setback I experienced last week… Actually not sure if it is appropriate to call it a setback since it was an entirely new experience for me.

I had a nervous break down. (more…)

Unexpected Turn of Events

When I embarked on a spiritual journey about a month ago, I knew that change was coming but I couldn’t tell you precisely what and how it was going to be. It is fair to say that I’ve cleared my plate, created mental space and let the universe do it’s thing for me.

I guess I was hoping for something green, something creative, some travel, some vacation and definitely some meaningful work.

Then something old became something new again. (more…)
