|My Brand New Belief System |

Day 9 of the #tut30days “Infinite Possibilities Project” was a tough one for me, because it touches on a word that holds a lot of weight. I therefore consulted Google to assist: The Assignment: Choose Beliefs For Each Area You Wish To Transform The Term: be·lief bəˈlēf/ (n.) an acceptance that a statement is true… Continue reading |My Brand New Belief System |

| For The Love Of Monday |

"I close my eyes and breathe deeply: Such serenity transports me to tomorrow. I wake up before the sun rises: It’s Monday. I love Mondays. I smile as my eyes flutter open, reach to my right to turn off my alarm. My husband still lays sleeping next to me, so I quietly slip out of… Continue reading | For The Love Of Monday |

| Game Changers |

The first week back to work was much more draining than expected. After a twelve-hour Monday, my Tuesday-Friday seemed to drag. Although I made small steps to ensure that I was engaging in more productive activities, my #tut30days challenge was put on pause while I crashed on the couch post- 6PM. This remains my biggest… Continue reading | Game Changers |

While I didn’t think that the Mandarin Hotel in Washington, D.C. would be my writing location for the evening, my job has a funny way of making things exciting. Nevertheless, I am working a bit later than usual and am discreetly multi-tasking to log my #tut30days assignment. Today’s challenge is all about the specifics: “Getting… Continue reading | Juicy Details |

| Packing Up 2016 |

What goes up, must come down, and today I am organizing the house one final time before my vacation comes to an end. Our Christmas tree was the last item to be taken down, and I dove into the project this morning, piping hot cup of coffee by my side. I love this type of… Continue reading | Packing Up 2016 |

| Short But Oh So Sweet |

I wish you a “Happy 2017” from my living room recliner, tired but aware that I cannot go to bed on “Day 1” without writing. I am pushing myself to get a few words down, and am mentally noting that tomorrow will need to exude a different tone, if this exercise is going to work.… Continue reading | Short But Oh So Sweet |

|8,760 Hours Later|

On this final day of 2016, I find myself reflecting on the last 8,760 hours in the rear-view, as so many others are. This entire vacation has been rather introspective and I have already evaluated the year as a whole in a separate post, but I only touched on my biggest triumphs and heaviest regrets… Continue reading |8,760 Hours Later|


| Letters & One Liners |

Despite the fact that my year was devoid of any formal writing, I did do something that was a little bit more private, but still captured a day-to-day point of view. After my wedding, I began to travel at least once a month and I wanted to keep my brand-new marriage blossoming while I was… Continue reading | Letters & One Liners |


| The World We Know |

Today marks the halfway point of my vacation, and I will admit that a terrible thought filled my head as I sat down to edit another abandoned poem this afternoon: I fear that this all won’t last. When work resumes, when my frequent flyer miles begin to escalate once more, I am scared that the… Continue reading | The World We Know |
