Getting My Mind Right & a Drive By Shower

For as long as I can remember giving birth has been one of my greatest fears. Probably since the day I realized how babies actually come into this world, I've been petrified of the day I would give birth.

OH. BABY.

Wow. It has been quite a while. I know I usually give some schpeal about how busy I've been and how I can't believe I have let this much time pass without writing but truthfully, I allowed it.

With that, I also completely trust the universe. I know, that no… Continue reading Trusting the Universe is Scary but Necessary

The Art of Letting Go

I've never been good at letting go of things. I don't mean silly grudges or gripes. I always have an easy time of letting those go. I mean tangible things. Things that are comfortable to me.
