Day 5 has been ROUGH. Not rough because the M&M’s are hard ~ rough because LIFE IS HARD. And the M&M’s are supposed to help buffer that difficulty just a bit. But it’s pretty hard to get those M’s in when you’re at rock bottom. (Except actual M&M’s, of course). But these wonderful M’s might help you out of rock bottom, Pixy! VICIOUS CYCLE. Anyone … Continue reading Day 5.
Here we go, kids! It’s August 1, and I am so ready. I’m nervous, I’m unsure of myself, and I’m definitely feeling that discomfort that comes just before I say negative things to myself, and quit. NOT THIS TIME! I’m going to push through this time ~ to the NEXT LEVEL! I’m treating this day, August 1st, as a new year. One year of … Continue reading Day 1: M&M’s
Oh friends, I TOLD you. I TOLD you I would add more to the list. The three M’s are about to expand to four. I forgot. Forgive me. I almost didn’t want to bother you all with this, but my friend Liz (Hi, Liz!) just told me she wanted to add an M! Then I thought, “Well, now I’ve gotta do it!” It was a … Continue reading ONE MORE M?
Dare I share this? I am notorious for starting something, blogging about it, and not following through with it. How many Whole 30’s, or Whole 21’s have there been? UGH. I hate not having any follow-through. But here I go again! Back on the horse. Here goes… I’ve been reading Julia Cameron’s life-changing book: The Artist’s Way. I have one more chapter left, and then … Continue reading THE THREE M’S.
Okay, I’ve got an idea. Can I run this by you? What if…instead of focusing on eliminating certain types of food, counting calories, and depriving ourselves of the things we love…we merely ADDED the things that fuel us and make us sing? And if that list is a big list ~ and oh honey you know mine is ~ we would literally run out of hours … Continue reading lightbulb moment: my healthy additions.

Hello friends! I just noticed it has been a few months since my last post. I am going through a lot of changes in my life. All are good, I promise! But my world is sort of turned upside-down in the meantime. There’s so much exciting opportunity on the horizon, but I’m afraid I might be stuck in the trenches right now. My little Pixy-Kitchen … Continue reading ch-ch-changes…
Hello beloved friends. Did you know that you are my accountability partners without even doing a thing? I don’t even have to know who’s reading this to feel a sense of responsibility when I make a declaration, or a promise. It might backfire on me from time to time, but it’s still so therapeutic to try. I’m going to do a week-long reset, starting today. … Continue reading Pick your poison.
Have you ever felt guilty for someone else’s nasty behavior? That doesn’t make a lick of sense, but I think it happens more often than we realize. Let me set the scene. A person we love misbehaves badly. We could stop their behavior by saying something, but we don’t know what to say. And would they hear it anyway? Then we watch the downward spiral of … Continue reading soap box.
This Lent has turned into something completely different than when I started over a week ago. I love it when you make plans to be diligent, and then God decides to take you for a ride down a much deeper, more poignant path. That is, if you let God do such crazy things. Here’s basically what happened: I started the Lenten Fast with the intention … Continue reading next stop: self-love.
