An Affirmation Conversation

Haha, sorry, I had to use that title .. the rhyme was too good not to. ANYWAY, I digress .. I went into my phone notepad the other day to type out another grocery list and noticed how many notes I had jotted down in that space. Like, excessive amounts. I was scrolling through them… Continue reading An Affirmation Conversation

Now Back To Your Normally Scheduled Blogging …

Well, hello strangers! I have to admit, I have been TERRIBLE at keeping up with my blog this Summer. Between the gorgeous weather, the 4th of July holiday and my impromptu vacation, I have completely let my blog fall by the wayside and that's not cool. Not only do I LOVE sharing and learning on… Continue reading Now Back To Your Normally Scheduled Blogging …

Tips For Making a Lifestyle Change

It's not easy when you suddenly change up the way you have been doing things your entire life. Since I was young I always ate meats and consumed dairies. I never really lived an organic lifestyle or put thought into what I was putting on or in my body. Recently, having changed my entire lifestyle,… Continue reading Tips For Making a Lifestyle Change

I SHRUNK MY TUMOR.

I wasn't super nervous for my follow up appointment ... until the night before. The whole time leading up to this visit at Dana Farber I was calm, cool and collected. The MRI really freaked me out the most but the results, at that time, weren't bothersome to me. Then, the night before the appointment… Continue reading I SHRUNK MY TUMOR.

MRI’s: What to Expect

I had my follow up MRI last Friday! I say it excitedly because I am glad it's O V E R. The very first time my PCP told me I needed and MRI I immediately panicked thinking about my claustrophobia. I hate small, confined places. Knowing I can't get out of a small space can… Continue reading MRI’s: What to Expect

Scanxiety

It's a real thing, scanxiety. I'm almost 100% positive it's not considered a real word but trust me, it's a real feeling. One that I thought I would never have to feel but since I do, I need to feel it and let it go. These past few months, while on watch and wait, have… Continue reading Scanxiety

How Quickly We Forget

I am NOT, by any means, an outdoorsy person. In fact, I really resonate with this meme in particular:I do, however have a best friend who is outdoorsy. We often speak about how we are so opposite and that's how our friendship works. She tends to get me into situations that are out of my… Continue reading How Quickly We Forget

Coffee: A Thing of the Past

I used to be someone who NEEDED their cup of coffee every single morning. I wouldn't truly feel "awake" until I was about half way through my cup. If I ever didn't have a chance to make it myself in the morning or if I was running late and didn't have time to stop and… Continue reading Coffee: A Thing of the Past

Comparison: The Thief of Joy

I saw a blogger the other day who appeared to have the "perfect" blog. Her days seemed to be spent dedicated to capturing the perfect photo, in the perfect outfit, with the perfect back drop. I immediately felt like my blog was inadequate. For a few minutes I even thought about stopping my blog because… Continue reading Comparison: The Thief of Joy
