A Letter to Things

In my pursuit of pleasure & following my theme of Nurturing, I’ve jotted down some thoughts on a recent read. Check out the post that explains here>>

First up…a letter to things 🙂

Dear turquoise peace pants,

Firstly, I love your teenage color and cost (ala Target). The soft interior lining has me almost delirious with coziness. Almost. Because, I bought a size too big, you sag around my pouch and booty (hey, that can be a song!) instead of snuggly holding me in. I feel all loose and floppy. Then, the leggings seem to taper (hello, 80’s, much?!) if not a straight leg.

I expected a yoga pant fit. I mean, you’re throwing up a peace sign, man.


But, again, your softness and color make me smile. So, I’ll keep you.

Lazily yours,


(what my family calls me)

Every Year, I name my year, give it a theme – so as to better visualize, focus and keep moving forward.

This year…

  • I will nurture my children with hugs, kisses, love & undivided attention –
  • I will look at them when they speak to me and I will encourage their curiosity, honesty, creativity, silliness & emotional well-being.
  • I will nurture my husband with sweet, encouraging words, quality time/attention and support in his goals and ours as a couple and family 🙂
  • I will nurture my body with nutritious meals, clean eating/drinking habits, daily exercise and strength training, dress my body in clothes/accessories that make y spirit happy and inspired!
  • I will nurture my mind with outdoor walks, scheduled meditation/journaling/quiet reflective time.
  • I will nurture my creativity by releasing old beliefs/doubts/negativity through ACOA reading and therapy
  • I will nurture my dreams by dreaming, recording, journaling, believing in myself – beautiful, nurturing self-talk and centering.
  • I will nurture my relationships with my family (parents/siblings) by first making myself strong through therapy and self-work so I can express my opinions clearly and calmly without feeling threatened or guilty.
  • I will nurture my writing by setting clear, realistic, simple goals and by Writing.Every.Single.Day.

So, what’s your word?
