My {un} Perfect Life

comparison is the thief of joy

The other day I was thinking about life. My thoughts were drawn to just how regular and mundane daily life can be for me {and probably for most people}. I don't have a fancy life nor does my life look at like a Pinterest pin. Truth be told I'm just sorta ordinary. My ordinary typically includes...an early morning workout followed by Shakeology. Off to work where I try to keep the ball rolling in terms of office supplies, lunches, copy machines, travel arrangements, paying invoices, ... Continue Reading...

But what if….

but what if

Last Friday I was reading a post on The Blended Blog by Andrea whose blog home is Living on Cloud Nine. She featured some of her favorites from the week and as I read the post and followed the links I was captivated by the post Has Blogging Gotten out of Control? by Fashion on the 4th Floor.

A blog is a frequently updated online personal journal or ... Continue Reading...

what’s saving my life right now?

Yet, I want to continue to pursue those things that were on my heart as January 2017 opened. Those ideas of others and refocus. I’m pursuing those. Yes, I’m ... Continue Reading...

“B’s” for the New Year

sharing my heart

Don't you just love the start of a New Year? Something about a new and fresh is exciting to me. It helps that so many other bloggers are of the same mindset. I love reading posts about goals, planning, organizing and words of the year. It just gets me pumped! I have been thinking, planning and organizing myself. I've thought about a word for the year but I'm not sure about that. But, as I was planning this weekend a few words came into my mind. The two that stand out the most were others ...

A Stylish Fit Intro

Allura-greatvibes

Friday has arrived and this means we are but a mere week away from Christmas. I hope you are enjoying the season but I know it can be a difficult time for some. If that is you, please know I wish I could hug you! Really, I do and I just wanted to say that....I just wanted you to know that. Well, today marks the beginning of a transition for me and this little ole blog. I have wanted to re-brand this blog for quite a while. It took me f.o.r.e.v.e.r. to decide on a new name. I knew the ... Continue Reading...
