Traveling Man: Everything is new, – new therapist, new job, new routine

Reading Time: 4 minutes One thing I love that a lot of poets do on the open mic is declare that they’re performing new shit. If life is a stage, then I would’ve said it every day last year. Something that I’m coming to terms with – almost a year later, is how significant the transitions I’ve gone through […]

Traveling Man: Toss it in the dumpster and light it on fire

Reading Time: 3 minutes When the morning is quiet I hear everything. I used to hate this, now it only kind of annoys me. The fridge is humming. The water is shifting in the pipes. Birds are outside.

Lastly, with a new year in a few days, it’s possible that you may feel like you have […]

Guest post: What can self-care look like?

Reading Time: 2 minutes This is a collaboration and ad post. I recently met Alicia of Boxed In, Co who makes the She Matters Subscription Box through the Boston Business Women’s networking group. Over the next few weeks, we’re doing a few collaborations together and she was gracious enough to push herself to write up a quick post for […]

Resetting Your Goals and Expectations for the Holiday Season

Reading Time: 4 minutes January came and went, and the spring flew by. Sometimes it feels as though we barely enjoyed summer and if you live in areas that experience extreme cold, it may already feel like fall disappeared. That’s how it feels in Massachusetts. Hoodie weather was about two weeks, give or take. The pellet stove has been […]
