Recently, I've come across many more triggers that have brought me back to a negative place. I'll be honest, I thought I was completely healed from my marriage. I've been feeling really good and positive... yet I've experienced so many more small triggers lately that just have set me back mentally. Most of them deal … Continue reading Healing.
It's been about quite some time of self work. I've gone from separated in late 2018, to attempting to retry again during the pandemic to separated again in summer 2020 to filing for divorce at the end of 2020 to finally becoming a divorced, single mom and home owner in early 2021. What a whirlwind. … Continue reading Self Work.
We can't chose what triggers us, only how we respond to it. That's the thing about trauma (no matter how severe). There are always things that are going to trigger you - it can literally be the slightest thing. Most days, I can feel triggered and know that I am about to go downhill and … Continue reading Trigger.
I stopped working with my nutrition coach. I originally signed up for three months to see where I could take my body but something happened in the last few weeks. I felt my energy depleting, mainly because I had increased my training at Crossfit. I found myself faced with a lot of "going out" situations … Continue reading Time For A Break.
I had different intentions for today's post, but it lead me here. Over the weekend I had to reassess boundaries; not just with my ex but life in general.

As of March 2nd, I was officially divorced. We had the final divorce hearing on February 16th, everything went well. We just had to wait for the judge to sign off. Technically we've been unofficially divorced since that day, but I was waiting to have the decree in hand that made it "official." When I … Continue reading Divorced.
I didn't think there would be a part three to this post, but here we are. A couple of days before the final divorce hearing, my ex came back to me asking for another chance. If I'm being honest, it would have probably been our firth or sixth "try again" at this point? His answer … Continue reading Boundaries Pt. III
I debated on writing this post, but my mind has been racing. During the last three weeks of December, so much happened; my brother go into a car accident, I had a family member pass away, my grandmother ended up back in the hospital and my ex and I finally re-filed for divorce on December … Continue reading To New Beginnings.
"Happiness is a journey, not a destination."This quote has been said by many and I often try to remind myself of this. I was re-watching Matt D'Avella's video on The Happiness Paradox and in this video he says "the more we think about the things we don't have, the more we remind ourselves we don't … Continue reading Pursuit of Happiness.
