*This post is sponsored by Chesapeake Bay Candle. Last month I hosted my second wellness workshop. I’ve mentioned holding these workshops before — usually in a Life Lately post — but haven’t gone into too much detail. I have a running list of post topics, goals, and other random tidbits relating to this blog that I don’t want to forget. Last year I included a sentence about having get-togethers, but didn’t take much action on it. All of a sudden as the summer approached, I felt the need to put my goal into action. I wanted it to be more… View Post

I’m roughly two weeks away from working entirely for myself. My only remaining job where I work for an employer is relatively hands-off as the company is based on the west coast, so I’ve been effectively working for myself for a couple months now. I don’t know that I ever pictured my life where it is today; in fact, I imagined at this point in my life I would be practicing pharmacy for virtually the rest of my life. To think that I was a person capable of owning a business would have been laughable to me. I was an… View Post

Happy Friday! Weeks have been super weird for me for the past couple. It’s like Tuesday hits and I feel like the week is going so slow, then all of a sudden I feel like I’ve skipped Wednesday and it’s already Thursday. I’ve had that same consistent feeling for about three weeks now. I don’t know what that means and I don’t hate it; it’s just weird. Does that happen to anyone else? Yesterday I took Donut to the vet for the first time and on top of a clean bill of health, I found out that she’s likely two… View Post

Feelings are hard for me to describe. I can come up with all kinds of visual representations of scenery or things you actually look at, but since identifying and owning feelings is such a relatively new ability of mine, it’s difficult to approach them with the same competence. My plan for this post was to start with a loose idea and see where it took me. Sometimes I’m laser-focused on a topic and other times I only have a rough idea of what I want to say, so I sit down and let my fingers do the talking. My rough idea… View Post

Bad news — I’m dealing with another injury. Good news — it’s not as severe as when I hurt my back and I was out of commission for a month. I can’t pinpoint exactly what happened to my foot, but I can pinpoint when I noticed that it was hurting. I was walking back from training a client and noticed that the top of my foot felt different — almost crampy and like it needed to crack. I’d felt a similar pain before when my shoelaces were too tight, so I figured that Donut’s exploits and the number of times… View Post
