What Are You Committed To?

What Are You Committed To?

Are your commitments dragging you down?

No, I’m not talking about your commitment to show up at work whether you feel like it or not…

Because a girl’s gotta pay the bills, am I right?!

I’m talking about those unspoken commitments. The ones that you’ve fed into despite their ability to leave you feeling like… well, a hot mess.

The Farmhouse Table That Drove Me Batty!

The Farmhouse Table That Drove Me Batty!

As I planned the move I decided what I absolutely needed was a farmhouse table for the new space. After doing some research, Google and Pinterest told me that building a table wouldn’t be all that hard (ladies, why does Pinterest always do this to me!?).

Naturally, I set my mind on building one. I reassured my husband that it’d be a super quick project and that with our brains combined we could totally do it.

Well, we did it (enter fist pump here)!

Body Image Distress

Body Image Distress

If you’ve read my post “Insight From a 5 Year Old” you know that like many women, I have had some struggles with my body image. So much so, that at one point, I wrote in giant letters

SARAH, STOP BEING SO FAT

across my bedroom mirror.

I was convinced that if I changed the way my body looked, I would start to believe in myself (maybe love myself?!) and feel worthy of my job, my relationships and really, my life.

Insight From a 5 Year Old

How often do you notice that nagging voice in your head that reminds you of all of your faults? Maybe you’ve become so used to it that you’ve stopped realizing how hurtful it can be.

A couple of years after graduating from college I had gained a significant amount of weight. I had no clue where to start to lose it, but I was feeling pretty terrible about myself. In an attempt to remind myself that I needed to make some changes, I wrote “SARAH, STOP BEING SO FAT” across the mirror in my bathroom with a dry erase marker.
