Saying no to things makes me squirm. Uncontrollably. It makes me feel icky that I may be turning down something that's super important to a friend. Or, when I was a part of the work world, something that may have gotten me more pay, improved skills, or a promotion. Why? Well, for the longest time . . .
Do you have a wise friend that's always inspiring you with new things? With her new approaches to living an amazing life? And lifting you up, inspiring you to be your best? Of course you do. She's your bestie. Your go to when you're in a pinch. So why not have a list of your "bestie" bloggers? . . .
I had the best of intentions when I made a plan the night before to exercise this morning. I meant to put out my workout clothes, wake up when my alarm went off (instead of snoozing), and spring out of bed ready to face my spinning bike. But then…well…my brain happened. Nothing running through my . . .

Wow, how did this happen?” And then, my inner critic starts thinking of ways to spend the $2900 balance. It’s been three months and I’ve managed to accumulate a regular (and increasing) . . .
In case you didn't know, for years I've had a spending archnemesis. She's the anti-superhero. That nasty mean girl that comes out of hiding when I'm feeling hopeless about ever getting out of debt, unhappy with my work life, and she more or less finds ways to wreak havoc when I'm feeling less than . . .
So you've decided to live a simple life and want a small, minimal space of your own. That somewhere to call yours, away from your hoarder type family that's been making you nuts with all their stuff while you rented a room from them. Yay! It's so exciting to have a place to call home that's all . . .
It’s 2015. I’m wearing my “typical corporate uniform”, nervously twirling the lone Tiffany’s ring I wear, waiting for my boss to arrive. It’s time for my monthly one on one – corporate speak for “are you meeting your numbers and increasing our profits.” As I fidget and try to finish emails, I’m all . . .
I’ve got this odd relationship with makeup. I like it but I don’t like a lot of it – both on my skin and in the drawer.
