The Long Game of Following Your Dreams

The Long Game of Following Your Dreams

Over the past year, I slowly laid down the dreams and timelines I once carried so tightly. I told you how I had carefully laid plans, and but how I was learning to let them go. As I made peace with the idea that I was not in control of certain areas of my life, I started to reconsider the things I did have some control over. I asked myself what the next right thing was instead of revising my five year plan. You may have noticed things have gotten a bit quieter around the blog this fall, and in part ... Read More »

Five Years: An Ode to New York City

Five Years: An Ode to New York City

Five years seems like a major milestone for us – this raucous, seductive city and me. As one who loves new adventures, endless options, and would prefer to always be on the move, half a decade is a big deal.

Photo Credit: Michael Comeau, Creative Commons I am thinking more often and more actively about what it looks like to be a mom in the city. I am asking more questions of friends who are moms, babysitting for friends, and finally picking up books that talk about child-rearing. I should know by now… this is how I do things. I am a researcher and fact-gatherer at heart. I want to be fully informed on whatever is my current topic of interest. I want to discuss it with anyone who will listen, and then eventually at some point, I feel ready ... Read More »

2014: The Year of Intention

As I was reading through other blogger’s posts and their new year’s resolutions, I saw a lot on this idea of choosing a “theme word” for the year. At first I thought that might be a bit much and didn’t think I had one, but as I sat down to solidify my goals for this year, the word intentional kept popping up. I want to be more intentional with my life, living more aware and with more purpose, in every single facet. Too often I find my NYC whirl-wind paced life distracts me and my days, weeks, and months begin ... Read More »
