You’re only as good as you were today

Some days I just don’t feel like it. I don’t feel like cooking, I don’t feel like working out, I don’t feel like working, basically I don’t feel like adulting. I just kinda want to hang out on the couch and watch some stupid show while my brain slowly oozes out of my ears. But […]

Wishful thinking won’t get you anywhere

I remember when “The Secret” came out. What an amazing concept! You mean… I can just comfortably sit on the couch and focus while the power of thought does all the work for me? Ha! Need I say more? Oh, but I’m going to. Are you freaking serious? How is “focusing” going to make me […]

There is nothing more frightening than a blank canvas

Here I am, staring at the screen, Figma open and a very clear image of what I want in my mind. However, for some reason, making the most basic decisions seems to be too hard for me. How wide should my canvas be? What’s my background color? Should I start vertical or horizontal? Should I […]

Giving back

I am one of those people who, when presented with a question, will immediately google it. Well, I guess not just any question, but, you know, general knowledge, specific knowledge, how-tos, etc. That kind of stuff. And I have to admit that, over the years, I’ve acquired a lot of knowledge because so many people […]

Being grateful takes work

Trust me, I am well aware of how lucky I am. I live in a nice house with a loving, dedicated and supportive husband. I have a job that I love. I enjoy the foods I eat, and I have food to eat. But it’s so easy to get caught up in the routine, the […]

The Three Strike Rule

Moving to a new country all by yourself is kinda tough. You don’t have any friends so you rely on your (new) husband to connect you with his friends’ wives. Which is fine, and you meet a lot of people like that, but honestly not everyone you meet will be bestie material. I went through […]

Simplify

A few weeks ago I had a bit of a breakdown. I guess I sort of knew it was coming: I felt like I needed time for myself to think, recharge, do my own thing, do nothing. Like there was a lot on my plate that I wasn’t able to handle, and that I was […]
