I’ve been reading Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” again now that I’m in a new position at work with more responsibility and more people depending on me. She quickly mentions how “all advice is autobiographical” and it just blew my mind. Is this why I feel the need to create my picture quotes on Instagram? To give myself advice as much as I give it to everyone else? Why, yes it is. Continue reading
I must confess: I am a laggard when it comes to most trends. Yoga, iPods, iPhones, skinny jeans, even Instagram! So when I started hearing all this hype about mindfulness and ‘living in the moment’, my initial thought was “give me a break”. Mindful eating? Meditation? Ugh. Continue reading

Call me delusional, but I really don’t think it’s as bad as it seems. Here are some of my optimistic reasons why growing old means that life only gets better.
Jelly? (Me trying to set the mood for this blog)
