“no habit is an accident” challenge – month 11: simply choose happiness.

It happened again. I said to myself, “NO! No challenges this month. NO way, not happening. TOO much. Brain overload. All challenged out. Busy enough already, but thanks anyway, Mr. Challenge. No seriously, I’m good over here, ok!?? Yea… Not dramatic at all. Anddd that’s when I heard the bells ringing: “ding, ding, ding”! All challenged … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” – month 10: 21 day #leadinluon integrity challenge RECAP

3 weeks later, and my stance on integrity hasn’t changed much, but this 21 day integrity practice helped bring to life some aspects of it even more. The past couple weeks definitely included some crazy and even heart wrenching series of events. So it’s safe to say I have a few takeaways and reflections. In a way, I … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” – month 10: 21 day #leadinluon integrity challenge

For starters, I can’t believe it’s month 10 (!!!!) of this yearlong challenge. The 2014 new year feels like yesterday…no really, I’m not even being clichè! Secondly–in a way, procrastination has really paid off for me so far this October (ha).  I hadn’t gotten around to picking my next ‘habit’, and was even contemplating giving it a … Continue reading

sck. favorites: all-natural health remedies

In the grand scheme of things, thus far in my life, I’ve been incredibly healthy.

Yet for the health woes … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident” challenge, month 9: #simplyselflove—final recap

*This post is well overdue, and I will let that be that! There were times this past month when I felt convinced this challenge would also result in failure. But as I’ve continued to learn over the course of this year, no habit starts or gets broken overnight. What I also learned is that the … Continue reading

on “faith in chaos”

In my junior year of college, our field hockey coach unanimously (I presume) declared our theme for that season as “faith in chaos”. This phrase was somehow represented by the “π” (pi) symbol and was imprinted on all our gear. I’m sure you can see the connection between “π” and ‘faith in chaos’, too. (Eye roll). Considering I … Continue reading

“no habit is an accident”challenge month 8: #simplyselflove + #mirrormantras

When thinking about this month’s “no habit is an accident” challenge, I knew I wanted it to be something that kept me focused and working on my top 14 for 2014. I also knew it needed to be something I could simply incorporate into my already jammmm-packeddddd day to day. Maybe even something that made … Continue reading
