The Truth About 2016

The Truth About 2016

So it’s been a year. And it has BEEN A YEAR, if ya know what I mean.  I took a full year off from the blogging game, for reasons I still can’t quite articulate. I didn’t set out at the start of 2016 to deliberately ignore my corner of the internet, it just happened. Last December, I started a new copywriting job that was an absolute blessing and so much fun. My boss is fantastic, my hours are solidly nine to five, but flexible because I am a contractor. I have worked on a variety of projects, put some new creative ... Read More »

A Letter To My Former Self: 2015 Edition

A Letter To My Former Self: 2015 Edition

Dearest 29 and 30 year old Erika, You set one intention beyond all others last year, and that was to practice presence. You came out of 2014 emotionally bruised and battered and exhausted by all the expectations you had for the year that refused to come to fruition. You felt your way through the start of the year tentatively, war-torn and bleary eyed, but determined to focus not just on the big stuff, but be proud of how you showed up for your everyday life. 2015 was slow and steady. At times it seemed uneventful and you were kind of ... Read More »

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 »

Well-Rounded Summer Reading for 2015

Well-Rounded Summer Reading for 2015

bibliophile: n. a person who collects or has a great love of books. This describes me well. These days I seem to read at least two books at once, and if I am loving them, you are sure to hear about it. My master “to read” list is sitting at a hefty 205 titles. I check my Amazon wishlist regularly to see if any titles I have been eyeing have gone on sale so I can snatch them up immediately. I will sacrifice sleep to finish a good book.  If I’m not reading, something is seriously wrong. I made a goal to ... Read More »

On Losing Those Last Ten Pounds

Every January, we make resolutions to get healthier. Well, January has come and gone. How are we doing with those resolutions, folks? While looking back at the goals I set in 2014, I was surprised to find that while I was still active last year, I did not cover nearly as ground than the year the before. I finally tried spinning classes (and loved them), so that accounts for some of it, but according to my Map My Run data, I completed about 30 workouts less. It was kind of disappointing to see those numbers go down, but I have still managed ... Read More »
