After graduating college and landing my dream job, daily goals became a thing of the past. Realizing I needed something to strive for on a daily basis, I decided to become a runner. Inspired by BenDoesLife, this blog was started as a way to hold myself accountable for sticking to my healthy lifestyle. My journey to a marathon starts here and now. Rock on!

Back to basics, anyone? Feels like a solid plan to me.

Roasting veggies, quinoa and an apple. Even Bood got in on it. Score.

Happy Caturday, rockstars! It’s a great day to be alive.

We’re so fancy.

It’s a nice day for a white wedding.

Is it just me, or is it hair-pullingly frustrating when people are snappy and/or rude and/or acehats without explanation?

If I’ve upset you, let me know by using your big kid words. Pull me aside, tell me how you feel. Be an adult about it. I’ll listen. Heck, I’ll apologize sans-hesitation if I’m in the wrong. That’s a promise.

If you suddenly, and without provocation, begin treating me with disdain and the lion’s share of attitude, however, let me assure you: I don’t respond to childish temper tantrums. I don’t appreciate indirect insults or demeaning insinuations about my moral character. Unless you have something to say, and you are interested in saying it to my face, cool it with the sass. I refuse to allow unwarranted negativity enter my life if there’s no light of resolution to be sought.

If you’d like to converse like respectable human beings and talk through the issue(s), I’m all ears. Otherwise, suck it up and be willing to talk through it with me, or keep it forever to yourself.

Why is it so difficult for some folks to be honest with others about what they want or how they feel?

You’re very welcome.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a double rainbow first thing in the morning. Awesome way to wake up!
