3 Good Things: January 16, 2022

 


Happy New Year! I've written out a few things that I'd like to accomplish in 2022. These aren't so much resolutions as they are to-dos. For example: go on more family hikes, visit New Orleans (god willing in a few weeks!), re-read Man's Search For Meaning, and manage social media usage...to name a few. How about you? Are you a fan of resolutions? Or do you pick a word as a guide for your year? As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of a fresh start. I feel energized and hopeful at the chance to start anew. 

Now, on to 3 good things:

1. Healthy dose of awe.

2. Season 2 of All Creatures Great and Small is out!

3. The great Alan Watts. This makes for the perfect 10 minute meditation.

3 Good Things: September 18, 2021

 


1. This hilarious murder mystery (And yes, such a genre exists!)

2. "You can't control the amount of time you spend on this planet, but you can control what you contribute while you're here." Great piece by James Clear.

3. Enjoyed watching the footage from this recording.

End of Summer





There are still a few more days left of summer. I must say, we had a great one. Our final adventure was up north where we stopped in Pennsylvania, Vermont, New York, and Delaware to visit friends and family along the way. These girls are quickly learning the art of a road trip!

School has started and the transition has thankfully been seamless. After an eventful summer, we're keeping things low-key and quiet this fall – soccer on Saturdays, movie nights on the weekends, house projects, garden maintenance, front porch hangs with neighbors. It's somewhat counter culture these days, but I try to avoid too much hustle and bustle. This time of year always makes me want to slow down and pause.

3 Good Things: July 29, 2021

 





We spent a week out west bopping around Wyoming and Utah. It was a dream to be able to show the girls these special places in nature that mean so much to us. While their favorite parts of the trip were bunk beds and the neighborhood pool, they did very much enjoy hiking and swimming in three different lakes! I'm excited to continue exposing them to the great outdoors both near and far.

A few good things (lord knows, the world could use more GOOD):

+ Groovy yoga beat

+ Top Olympic moments off the court

+ Saw this in theaters on Tuesday and it was just as fantastic as the trailer looks.

3 Good Things: May 28, 2021


It's the last day of school for the girls. Summer, for us, begins now! While we have a few fun trips planned, I also hope to leave a lot of white space for impromptu adventures involving water, popsicles, and time with friends and neighbors. 

A few good things:

+ Radical acceptance. I try to do a Tara Brach meditation a once or twice a week. 

+ This gave me chills.

+ Binged the final season hard
