Better Than A Bucket List

I’ve had a bucket list for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved the idea of one. The wistfulness of that list always left me something to dream about when I became an adult. But looking back now, I realize I had never really actively worked toward achieving anything on that list. It’s just super romantic to say I want to visit Paris one day.

Pay It Forward

I’ve had mixed feeling about the whole pay it forward movement. Don’t get me wrong: I LOVE the idea of doing kind deeds for strangers. I enjoy the unexpected show of goodwill and kindness that I can plop into someone’s day. But when you get into the weird showiness of posting about it on social media or telling people about it…I don’t know.  It feels disingenuous. It takes the beauty out of it a little. But here I am, the girl that’s about to tell you how I paid it forward recently.

Do The Scary Things

I started 2018 with a blank slate. About two months from being officially divorced, struggling through my small business because my heart wasn’t in it any longer, floundering through having to be financially independent for the first time in two decades and terrified that my children would see me fail at life, I knew I had to get my shit together.

A Life To Love

Why is divorce something we feel we have to admit to people, not disclose? We don’t have to admit that we went to Target for milk and spent $157. That, my friends, is something we should feel shameful about. But divorce? No, Becky. It isn’t.
