Change

Because the Universe is abundant, the job that I just quit came along at the right time exactly when I needed it. I was underemployed for years. Being underemployed is maybe better than being unemployed. But for years my work life had me feeling under-stimulated and underpaid. Something was always wrong with every other job. Maybe there was no paid time off. Maybe there was some paid time off that I used up way too fast. Sometimes I didn’t like the people and the neighborhood where the job was. No matter what, something was always off.…

How I learned to love Exercise

For as long as I can remember I have had a love-hate relationship with exercise and fitness. I’ve always loved the idea of looking and being fit, and I’ve always hated exercising. But I accepted working out as a necessary evil and even if only sporadically I would make myself workout. From time to time (when I say time to time I mean every new year) I would recommit to fitness. Each January, I would make a vow to myself that I would eat right and workout and achieve that beach body that I’ve always wanted.…

Why it’s Not Hard to Love February

By now you know that I don’t like the winter and that I’m not a huge fan of Mondays or my survival job. So I am thrilled to share with you about something that I love for real. I love February and I am so excited that it’s here. There’s so much that I love about February. The holidays are fully behind us. I don’t know about you, but for me, the holiday season is a lot. I spent January winding down and I know that I started working myself up about the holidays back in…

Dread

The dread is becoming undeniable. I’ve done some reflecting and I have to face the fact that I need to make some changes. The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to reflect on where we are and where we want to be. I love the sense of renewal and the feeling of possibility the New Year represents. But I have to admit that I don’t love facing the dread that has been building up inside of me.

Winter in BX, NY

Winter is coming

I feel like a character from Game of Thrones, crying that winter is coming. I spent most of October being sad that the summer is over. What I learned about myself is that I take too long to do things. I should have stopped mourning the end of Summer in September. Although Fall does give me a feeling of hopefulness and optimism, I usually ignore that and focus my energy thinking of all the things I hate about the winter. But I recently decided to become the type of person who does not waste energy in…

How I learned to love Mondays

I know love is a strong word. It is fairer to say I have learned to face Monday with less dread. The thing is, I feel like “I love Monday” has a nicer sound than “I face Monday without dread.” I used to hate Mondays. My alarm clock was an assault that rocked my senses. It didn’t matter what job I had, I hated Monday. I felt that the weekend was my real life and that having to go back to work interfered with my ability to live and just be. I used to dread the…
