Stillness | December 2021

While trying to decide where to go with my last effort for my One Little Word in 2021, I realized that it's impossible to distill twelve months of Stillness into one post. I can't really put something together that shows everything I've learned and then wrap it up with a pretty bow. I can only... Continue Reading →

Stillness | November 2021

Friends, we only have one month left with this year's word. How can that be?! Stillness has been such a good fit for 2021 and I don't think I'm ready to leave it behind. Of course, I don't have to! I have a new word picked out for 2022, but Stillness will continue to work... Continue Reading →

Stillness | October 2021

Can you believe it's the last week of October? This is my favorite month and I'll be sad to say goodbye to it. And as we get closer to the end of 2021, I'm beginning to think of next year's word and what I'm looking to learn from it. But before then, I'm happy to... Continue Reading →

Stillness | September 2021

It's the last Tuesday of the month, so I'm checking in with Carolyn and my One Little Word. You can see all of my Stillness posts here. September was a month of feeling unsteady, off-kilter, and not quite like myself. It was a time of paring down and changing focus. The biggest shift for me... Continue Reading →

My Desk on Friday

This picture of my desk on Friday night illustrates my life right now. Empty notebooks. A closed laptop. Piles of paper that don't belong there. Library books buried in the detritus. I took last week off from nearly all of my regular scheduled programming. My journaling streak? It's over. Monday, August 30 was Day 513... Continue Reading →

Stillness | August 2021

September is nearly here! But before we can step into early fall, we have to let go of August. I can't think of a better way to end a month than checking in with Carolyn and everyone's One Little Word. I've used this year to practice slowing down and cultivate stillness in my life. I...

Stillness 2021 | A July Wobble

A big thanks to Carolyn at Your One Word for hosting this monthly check-in. This has been quite a year and I love having this link up to keep me on track. You can see all of my Stillness posts here. I'm having a bit of a wobble with my word right now. Nothing major,... Continue Reading →

Stillness June 2021 | Check In

The last Tuesday of every month always sneaks up on me. But that means it's time to join Carolyn and write a little something about my one little word for the year - Stillness. Since we're halfway through the year, I want to take the opportunity to reflect on some of the practices I've cultivated... Continue Reading →

Joyful Weekend

Oof - I didn't mean to take another week off from blogging. Yet here I am, bashfully reentering the blogosphere. For some reason, writing felt like an insurmountable task. I was bored with the blogging schedule I've been following for the last year and couldn't figure out how to break through the staleness, so today's... Continue Reading →
