Hi friends. Welcome.
So glad your here with me.
Two weeks into December already.
Need a quiet place to rest a while? Need a few minutes to yourself ?
Yep me too – – –
So here are a few good things I’ve pulled together with that in mind.
A Good Word
You don’t have to do something shocking to get noticed.
You don’t have to do something earth-shaking to matter.
You don’t have to change anything about yourself to be loved.
Be YOU xx
A Good Look
Treasure found in stillness. Stopping mightn’t be popular this time of year but it might be just the thing you need (and maybe where you find that thing your really looking for).

It Doesn’t Have to Be All Or Nothing
Lessons I’ve learned the hard way.
I held onto an “all or nothing” mindset for years.
You know the one.
If you can’t be the best – why even try?
If you can’t go all-in then you can’t go at all.
It kept me stuck in many areas of my life for many years.
I was wrong.
And as gentle and as boldly as I can – I’m saying:
Start where you are.
Do what you can.
We are all just trying to figure it out.
It’s ok to embrace progress over perfection.
It’s ok to not be “the best” at everything.
We live in the messy middle – some days are better than others.
So today and this new week.
Lean into the curiosity to grow.
To try new things.
Every small step forward is taking you further than doing nothing at all.
It doesn’t have to be all or nothing
A Good Read

My mother was a drug addict. She ran off to California with a boyfriend when I was a baby. A few years later, she died in her apartment in Van Nuys of a drug overdose. My older brother and I were raised by my grandparents and our foster mother, Esther. Time was divided between the middle-class neighborhood just north of Boston where my grandparents lived and my foster mother’s apartment in a housing project just up the hill. It was in the time spent between those two homes that I learned the differences between the haves and the have-nots, and nowhere was this more apparent than in the kitchen – – – Keep reading
