As in over half? C r a z y. “time flies, but you’re the pilot.” I also realize I’m a good 8 days late on publishing this month’s challenge. Guilty as charged. Hear me out? … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” challenge: month 5 – #simplysaving, final recap

Guys, saving money is haaaard. Over the course of the month, I realized how easy technology & society have made spending money. You could actually leave your wallet at home, cut your cards, or put them in the freezer and still find a way to spend money. Hellllo, Amazon app, “buy with 1-click” features & … Continue reading

on moments & how love does

I couldn’t stage moments like today’s even if I tried. For what started as a negative, slow-moving, self-defeating run through the neighborhood; suddenly took an abrupt, unexpected turn. It was transformed to an adrenaline-filled, heart-pumping, sweat-on-my-brow, smile-on-my-face kind of workout. It ended with double, hand-to-hand high fives with a stranger little girl; who whimsically joined me for a round of … Continue reading

Impulse buying. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never really been the oops-I-just-went-on-a-massive-shopping-spree kind of girl. But still… a new tank here, another coffee there, some extra home decor, speciality groceries on the reg…you … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” challenge- month 4: #simplygrateful31 final recap

Being the simply complicated person that I am, naturally – I found a way to make even my #simplygrateful31 challenge mildly complex. I mean, have you been reading the captions??! You won’t find many one-word answer “I’m grateful for ____.” posts.
