YouTube. . . The Final Frontier. . .

Welp, I finally did it. After YEARS. . . even a DECADE of putting this off, I’ve launched a YouTube channel. I know, from what all of the internet experts say, that the “riches are in the niches” but I just don’t do well with narrowing down my interests and the same goes for my…

My #SecretAnxiety – the Unmastered Frontier

I’m fairly open about my bipolar – the depression and hypo-mania, and I’m beginning to theorize that this level of comfort correlates to a level of mastery I believe I’ve gained over it in the past few years. I’m theorizing this because I’m experiencing something new and I find it embarrassing when I know I…

Learning While Adventuring When I said that my trip was “eye-opening” in my previous post, I was referring to a few experiences, this one in particular.  Let me explain. Things that I know about myself:  I can be pushy/bossy/stubborn/whatever you want to call it.  I can also be overly helpful when mayyyyybe someone didn’t even…

Biggest Lessons in Traveling Solo

Lesson One – Solo is not for me This may sound like a cop out but the biggest lesson I learned during my travels is that I prefer not to travel solo. **Let me preface this by saying that I’ve fluctuated between the independent and codependent behaviors since I was a kid.  It changes, I’m not…

Adventuring for the Introvert – My First Solo Trip

Whew!  I made it!  I am back in the swamp lands of Florida, just in time for tropical storm/tropical depression/hurricane Hermine, whatever she’s been upgraded-downgraded to now. I won’t go into details in this post, I’m still exhausted, but I wanted to let y’all know that I survived my very first solo vacation!!!  I was…

Swearwords as motivation

If you’ve read my blog in the last couple of weeks you may recall this post here:  It’s a Process – try, fail, succeed In that post I shared a lovely graphic that I made in the hopes of inspiring you to embrace failure. Well, after asking a representative at Canva if I could use swearwords…

Leadership 1 – because we’re not even in the double digits yet

Becoming a Leader Ok, so, I had planned to write out a lengthy blog post about how to blossom into the role of LEADER. . . However, I feel like that’s doing a disservice to you, my 30-something strong readership.  Perhaps you’re already a leader and you got this ish ON LOCK, or you’re a timid…

It’s a Process – try, fail, succeed

I made up another thing with words that I thought up. Word. That’s all I got for tonight.  I’m trying to write about leadership – which is a lot harder than my stream of consciousness!   PS – I make all of my little “things” via Canva – it’s an awesome website with tons of…

Leap then Look, When not to Consider the Consequences

BEST IDEA EVER!! I’ve always had a knack for carelessly jumping head-first into whatever grand idea I thought was The Best Idea Ever at any given time.  I would chalk this up to the poor decision making abilities that come with my bipolar, but this goes way back into childhood.  I broke my arm when I…
