Are you just living, or are you ALIVE?

The dishes need washed, more things need to be crossed off my list... and before I know it, I've done it again. The week has flown by and I didn't take time to do the important stuff. I can't remember the funny thing the kids did (and I didn't write it down). What am I talking about? I'm talking about being so caught up in the "daily-ness" of life that I forget to ENJOY it.  I've seen other people do it, too. Someone I know closely has said (many times) "I get so busy putting out 'fires' that I don't deliberately set aside...

In the middle of it all, we added two (cute!) babies to our family! Alex was working 80+ hours a week to pay off hospital bills, and I was trying to run a business, raise babies, and mostly just stay afloat. In reality, it felt like I was barely keeping my head above...

What is Slow Living?

Stress. Overwhelm. Busy, Rush, and Hustle. These are very common words, and a short time ago, I was letting them run my life… and I was getting sicker and sicker. Most days you could find me frazzled & stressed out as I tried to do All. The. Things. “I’m SO overwhelmed!!! 😭😭😭” was my go-to explanation when Alex asked how my day went. I was SO busy. The ironic thing is, that the more I rushed around, the less I seemed to accomplish. My days were filled with frustration as the busy and stress cycled around. It's shocking to see these pictures....

How to Stop People-Pleasing.

I am a recovering people-pleaser.   Conversations with friends used to go something like this: Friend: “Hey! Can I come over in twenty minutes?"  Me: YES! In my head: I'll have to put off my errands, and the laundry will need to wait for the second time in a row... Second Friend: Do you want to hang out today?” Me: SURE!
