Keep Going

It seems like the hits just keep coming. Nice, strong start followed by a stressful move. Get settled. Dip my toes into the water to find my routine again, and deal with the holiday setbacks. Give it another go, feel great about it, and get sick. Sick isn't enough of an excuse, though, so let's [...]

Rejection

I've never been good at handling rejection. I don't know that anyone ever gets used to it, but for me, it's not even just about getting used to it. It's about accepting it. Not obsessing over it.

Forget ‘Want’

I don't want to be up yet. I don't want yogurt for breakfast. I didn't want to do yoga at an hour when most people don't even know their own names. I don't want to go to work today. I don't want to smile when I don't feel like smiling. I don't want to pretend [...]
