Welcome back to the work week – if you’re working that M-F grind. Mondays I always feel a little nostalgic for the weekend + am planning my carry over from the previous weekends “Crap I didn’t get that done!” I am always a fan of the #MondayMotivation to get back on track + realize that I am not the only one that feels like a hot mess! I got some good feedback from my Dalai Lama and MLK quote posts, so I thought a Buddha quote post was needed. Check it out + share it with someone that needs it :)…

We’ve been having a lot of discussions about effective communication in our workplace this month. I think it’s important to have that discussion in general, in all aspects of your life and your interpersonal relationships – to check in and make sure you are getting the most out of your time here on this planet. It doesn’t always go so well – because understanding people’s love languages + personalities is something that is very difficult to understand- however with a little love + understanding, these are things that can be overcome.

For me – I’ve been very introspective lately as people close to me are having end of…

Happiness and relative happiness is something I think about often – and how other people treat you and how you treat yourself can have impact that cuts so deep. I recently started watching 13 Reasons Why on Netflix – it’s a beautiful, haunting piece of art that tells the story of a teenage girl’s suicide and the experiences that lead her down this path.

So – it’s April. in Maine, spring has sprung, and that means 3 months ish till summer. Fortunately, 3 months is JUST enough time to start burning off all of your winter indiscretions. I’m back on the no drinking during the week bandwagon, and I’ve finally bit the bullet and joined a CrossFit gym, because I cannot be trusted. (Side note – this motivates me – just do what motivates you! but whatever you do – just do something 🙂  For the record – I’ve participated + enjoyed ALL of these trainers/gyms and  I recommend them highly – Union Street…
