Nicole: On the Record and Oversharing

It’s totally bittersweet for me, but I think this was my most favorite week of the whole season! It was so much fun to see the questions my fellow Season 7 rockstars came up with and I had a blast answering them. You may learn a few things about me that you didn’t want to know and for that I don’t really apologize…I’m quirky and I’m told its a pretty lovable trait. ENJOY!

So much Inspiration, Self-Love and Authenticity

The last few weeks I’ve experienced quite a range of emotions – from soul-aching sadness to heart-melting happiness. It has been quite a ride, but I’ve never felt more alive than I do right now.

Learning to Let Go

Once I got over the initial OHMYGOD, MY BABY IS IN KINDERGARTEN shock, I’ve settled into a more relaxed acceptance of the whole situation. I think all the time we were spending together was making us both a little crazy. {Well me, for sure!}

A Colorful Visit to One Of My Favorite Cities

I’m so excited to discover that I’m giving myself permission to be myself. To have fun and enjoy my life for me and not solely as a momma. I make plenty of memories with my little person. But the Color Run was for me. Every powdery, colorful, skin-staining minute of it!

Die, Die, Die. I can’t.

I am making a few transitions currently like learning how to be a step mom, losing weight and working for myself, but my major transition is learning how to live in the now. My life overwhelms me so much sometimes that many days, I spend my free time sitting on the computer doing anything except face reality. I am trying to learn how to manage my feelings, step away from the glowing screen and get out of the house.

Shedding This Skin, I Become Who I Am

I regret not being as consistent with my blogging in the last month as I was in the first few. It looks like I still need to find a better balance with my life and making sure I can do everything I want to the best of my abilities. I admit, I applied to be a Stratejoy blogger on a whim and I’m glad that I did. I’ve learned that there are other folks out there like me who are still figuring out how we shall exist in this vast universe.

A Penny Wish for an Interesting Life

Now though, I’m beginning to realize that it’s not so much this “interesting” life I want. It gets utterly exhausting having obstacles confronting me at every other turn. I’d rather have more of those lusciously interesting moments amidst a continuous stream of joy. That would be my best life.

Self-Care on the Road

Traveling – especially for an extended period of time – throws off all your routines. A few weeks ago, I was reminded why self-care is so important, even when you’re living a life that you love.

The Kindness of Strangers

This Thanksgiving, I am feeling exceptionally grateful for people who go out of their way to help others, even people whom they’ve just met.
