My 40 truths

1. I loved creating a stay at home adventure this past year! Im am leaving a decade behind in amongst covid and have been working hard on this last piece to 40 by integrating fitness into my routine daily (or at least regularly)! My first truth is that I made some dumb decisons in this past year, which interfered with my daily training goal- Due to unforseen night-outs and going extreme, beyond societys standard of healthy drinking, i had hangover days where there was simply no way to find my way to work out- for reasons that were clear- #shithappens

2. My kids kept me moving out the door each and every morning let me explain myself- they wake early- so the key is to be awake earlier- and this helped me check time for me, alone, for my wellbeing! #parentingtips

3. My kids are crazy most days and they fuel my crazy- which works in such a way that were all a bit dysfunctionally crazy- but were finding our way to regulate daily- #emotionaldysregulation

4. I dream of becoming a business owner. #dreams

15. I am a writer. my first book was put out there in the universe to share that were all walking the impossible- yet we can make it- its possible- I own a blog, titled #shiftyourlifedesign and it began with mental health in mind. i believe in the better good and write about what ever feels right the days i open it up to blog about stuff. I have been working on my second book and it too is about learning to be the better good when everything, even me feels unsettled and extreme. “The halfway house”. #blogger
