Obviously this is a picture of me doing push-ups.
My favorite trainer at the gym likes to give 10 second encouragement. It’s effective because it’s a small achievable goal, even when it feels enormous. I’m trying to apply this mentality to 2015.
Just 10 more seconds. You can do anything for 10 seconds.

Today was bittersweet, to say the least. I’m struggling with how to process it to be honest. I have this darling friend and beloved co-worker and today was her last day. Continue reading
This is a typical Monday morning quest for me… No big deal.
It’s not you. It’s me. But seriously. You’re wonderful and funny and engaging and I adore you. Additionally, I’m sorry I’ve been so distant.
Lately, life has been…. large, heavy, hairy, busy, big. I wouldn’t go so far as to say bad because some amazing things have happened lately. However, I’ve been staring at what feels like a monster lately and wondering how my life got so out of hand. Continue reading
Do you ever wonder about your life? What your purpose is? Why you bother to get up in the morning, go into work and then come home, only to rinse, repeat the next day?
Lately, life seems to be going a mile a minute and I’ve been feeling like I’m barely hanging on. I made a decision last week that I wasn’t going to sit around and let the chaos outside ruin my internal peace. But of course, I’m really terrible at keeping calm (like ever!) so I started looking for tools to help me. Continue reading
One of my favorite pics of us
September 12 marks the 5 year anniversary of me and the Colbster. Um… excuse me? That’s insane. Five years seems like nothing and forever. Continue reading
Um…guys? I think you’re supposed to be following me.
I have recently received a promotion at work which I’m so stoked about. As the Director of Engagement, my job is to work with a team to make sure our clients are happy and successful. Weeeeeeeeee! And now the fun begins… Continue reading
Bella hard at work
I don’t want to write, but I don’t want my blog stale. It’s a dilemma.
I mean, I want to write, but not right now. I have post ideas, but I’m distracted and have a bit of writers block. This blog has been neglected for too long, but I’ve got my mind running in a million different directions. Continue reading

Today is one of those days. Nothing seems to be going right and all the pieces refuse to fall into place. It’s late in the evening and I am still online slugging along with a project when I realize that my developers have duplicated my users.
This probably doesn’t mean much to you. But for me, it’s the end of the day and I just learned that there is a lot more work to be done. This is the project that never ends. I started to get annoyed. I started to complain.
And then, I decided instead to laugh. Continue reading

What would you give to go back to school? I’m giving up an hour a week – not a bad trade for college courses! Continue reading
Vacation, just out the window.
I am on a much need mini-vacation. I’m in sunny California for a long weekend with a good friend, The Lindz. By all accounts, this should be a weekend of unwinding, drinking wine and enjoying life. I packed all my favorite clothes. I’ve gathered all my new books to read. I’ve started a list of all the places I want to eat….
…. And then all the fun comes to a screeching halt. Enter all of my insecure body thoughts. This weekend I’ll be surrounded by new people. I’ll be drinking more than normal. I’ll be eating differently. I won’t be able to control my world as tightly. Suddenly, all the joy and exhilaration I had from taking a vacation is gone, replaced with insecurities. Continue reading
