Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. – Jim Morrison The July 4th celebrations are in full effect. My favorite holiday is here. This holiday of red, white and blue, of hot dogs and BBQ, of apple pie and… Read More You Are Free
Memories are the diary that we carry with us. Nine years ago, I was preparing for my wedding. It was a nutty, stressful time. I felt alone, clueless, and anxious. How much are the flowers?? Will my mom sit near my dad at the reception? We need programs? Then came the day. The fireworks display… Read More The Bench
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. Guys, it’s been a long five years. But this past year has felt like one of the longest. I’ve been trying to figure out what’s been getting to me lately. What’s making me feel paralyzed. I don’t think it’s the travel and obligations. I don’t think it’s the cats… Read More My Queendom
I’m having a moment. A moment where things aren’t hugely exciting. A moment where the future seems lonely. A moment where I’m unsure if I’m on the right track. A moment where I’m questioning what “yes” really means. I wasn’t sure if I should tell you that. About my moment. But this journey is about openness,… Read More A Moment
[Note: I promised myself I’d write a blog post at the very end of May 21st–the day that I ran my first half-marathon. Nothing can really capture all the feels than writing them out at the very moment you’re feeling them. So here goes…midnight…many celebratory drinks later…and one early flight back out west in the… Read More When You Run Your First Half With Your Ex
On the flight from New York to Seattle, I decided to watch How to Be Single with Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson. I’m awesome at picking terrible movies but they’re kind of the only ones I really enjoy. Name one. I’ve probably seen it five times. Anyway, beyond the badness, I could sort of relate with… Read More How To Be Single
Life is a gift. Live it well. This past year, two people in my life have passed. Beautiful women. Both in their 30s. Too soon. Shannon, a woman who had the laugh of a lifetime. I’ve never been a sillier person than I was with her. The shenanigans we’d get into, the days we’d walk around… Read More Live It Well
My journey hasn’t been the easiest. But I’ve made it my mission to keep laughing, loving, learning, living. Being perfectly imperfect and unapologetically Fi. And guess what’s starting to happen? Things are beginning to just click.
Yesterday on Insta, I posed the question, “What would you ask for if you knew the answer was yes?” I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit because…hmm…I actually don’t know. I’ve been trying to figure out what this means. The whole not knowing thing. Am I lost? Am I scared? Do I not want… Read More Stumped
It’s becoming clear to me how pursuing my passions bring out the best in me. How loving something so much can make me a better person. How being my super awkward self, the person I truly am, can make me feel amazing. It’s becoming clear to me how much this world has to offer and how much… Read More Be. Impressive.
