Good deals I've come across, posts of note, quotes I love, and other such things.Here we go!+ Thanks to Hillary's recent list of favorite things, I have a new song to absolutely obsess over. I was actually having a kitchen dance party yesterday morning that apparently ended up entertaining the gardeners next door. (Note to self: Close doors and blinds before busting a move in the…

    Dear Annika,Four days ago (sorry!), you turned 11 months old. Meaning that next time I do this, you will be ONE!This month has been another month of explosions for you, the two biggest being that you have started to walk and you have started to say a couple words. A couple weeks ago you took a few tentative steps, and you have slowly been increasing since then. By now you walk steadily for 8-10 steps at a time, and occasionally walk as a mode of transportation, even though crawling is still faster. You've also figured out how to stand up without pulling or bracing yourself on anything, by…

    Ebola can be scary, especially for an immunocompromised transplant patient! (Especially in Cleveland/Akron where an Ebola patient traveled immediately before being diagnosed!) The media is going crazy with every lead they can find, and people are blowing things out of proportion on social media. Instead of being consumed with fear, I decided to get some answers. On my quest of separating facts from undue overreaction, I’ve generally avoided the media and stayed in-tune to the CDC and live airings of our local health departments, doctors at our top Cleveland hospitals, and government…

    Dear Annika,Today you are 10 months old. Ten! Only two more of these until you are ONE, and we are done with the monthly photos. Judging from your desire to rip your 10-month sticker off your onesie while I took your photo today, I'd say that might not be a bad thing. This month has been all about the standing. You always want to be upright, and you're very good. You pull yourself to standing on almost anything, and you only need a surface of an inch or two (like a puzzle box) to get yourself upright. Once you're up, you no longer need to hold on to anything to stay that way, and will…

    Dear Annika,On Saturday, you turned nine months old. Three quarters of a year! (Plus three days. Sorry about that.)If last month was the month of gradual skill-building, this month was the month of the breakthroughs. The biggest is that shortly after you turned eight months, you started to crawl. You were cautious at first, and often switched between two knees and one knee and one foot, but by now, a few weeks later, you have it down, and go zooming by on hands and knees, invariably on your way to grab something you shouldn't be touching. Baby-proofing is a lot tougher this time around,…

    Dear Annika,Today you are eight months old. We are in prime Peak of the Baby season, and it is glorious. This month it feels like rather than any major breakthroughs, you've been working on building upon the skills you already have. You sit endlessly by now, and are happiest like that, playing. You've spent a lot of time this past month working on getting up on all fours--you can get up on your knees, though you don't usually hold the position for long, and you also do a lot of planking and downward dog. It seems like progress toward crawling, though I think that may still be a ways away.

    Dear Annika,Today you are seven months old. Closer to a year than to birth. Let's not discuss it.It feels like a lot has changed this past month in terms of your skills, your disposition, and the way you spend your time. By now you are a master sitter and can sit unsupported indefinitely (though we still put a pillow behind you to accommodate the occasional crash). As a result, you spend most of your play time sitting or playing on your belly (you will often get yourself from sitting to prone-on-the-belly on purpose by leaning forward as far as you can and then kind of toppling off your…

    Amanda

    I am so deeply grateful to be celebrating my fourth “transplantaversary” today. Yesterday marks the day I entered surgery to receive a new liver, and today marks the day that I awoke for the first time with new life within me. Without my gift of life, I wouldn’t have received the opportunity to love again, complete my education, visit new countries across the world, become a godmother, meet new friends, touch more lives, or savor every ordinary day. The journey has – at times – been treacherous and almost too much to bear. There has been fear and pain. But today,…

We are getting married in the spring, and we couldn’t be more excited. I’m nearing four years with my new liver, and it is so healthy. I only have one more year of the hepatocellular carcinoma protocol and then I’m officially in the clear. I’m doing well since my last major surgery last August and the reconstruction has not only helped cosmetically but it has radically eliminated my adhesion pain. If you have…

I wouldn’t change my experience.  It profoundly altered my life in ways I didn’t expect… So the next time you’re faced with something that is unexpected, unwanted, and uncertain, consider, it just may be a gift. Stacy Kramer, brain tumor survivor, so eloquently told the story I’ve relayed to countless individuals.  I think a lot of us who endure life-threatening illness come out to see what a gift it was.  As I’m sure it was for her too, many of my nights were sleepless; there was a lot of pain.

I have been absent from my posting for a little bit due to the crazy busy (but wonderful) holidays and wrapping up my baccalaureate degree in Public Health with a focus of Education and Promotion.  But I need to say something important right now.

  • Radical Self Love: Gaining Wisdom To Help You Conquer With Latham Thomas

    Natalie MacNeil
    23 Oct 2014 | 11:03 am
    There’s a secret ingredient to the “special sauce” of building a business that so many of us tend to overlook as we hustle our way to success, but without it we risk never reaching our business goals and, even worse, losing touch with ourselves in the process. What is it? Radical self love.   Self love. It’s sumptuous, simple to put into practice, and shores up your feel-good reserves so you can power through those tough situations. (Click to tweet) And in this week’s Conquer Summit interview, fitness and lifestyle expert Latham Thomas is going to share her advice on practicing…

So many mega successful entrepreneurs know a little secret about this: Earning money shouldn’t be hard work. (Click to tweet!) In fact, this week’s Conquer Summit guest, Tara Gentile, believes making money should be a beautiful and easy thing, which I absolutely love.

    Gaining clarity and finding your purpose can be a real challenge, especially when we’re enmeshed in so much busyness in our day-to-day lives. But finding (and focusing on) your purpose every day can also bring great freedom and incredible personal success. This is something my friend Nisha Moodley and I talked about during our Conquer Summit interview last night.   Nisha knows a thing or two about finding out what’s true to the heart and creating a “sisterhood” to help each other gain inner wisdom. She is a coach, a community cultivator, a writer, a speaker, and a…
  • Emotional Freedom Technique For Busting Business Blocks With Susan Bushell

    2 Oct 2014 | 11:38 am
    What’s holding you back from the success you desire?   We all hold onto emotions and past traumas and heartaches that can affect us in so many different ways, and these blocks can actually prevent us from fully conquering in our businesses and in our lives. When I first heard about the emotional freedom technique (“EFT”), I’ll admit I was skeptical. But in learning that EFT is a powerful, drug-free, easy-to-learn, easy-to-use technique that can reduce stress or painful emotions associated with thoughts, past experiences, etc., I decided I had nothing to lose and gave it a shot.

    The first time I spoke in front of a crowd was on what was then the largest stage in the content strategy industry: Confab, in Minneapolis. It was 2012. I was about to drop Fugazi references and pictures of my great grandmother’s cookbook and surprisingly no fart jokes. I was hoping not to shit myself, to be honest. I had somehow attracted a standing-room only crowd, despite no one knowing who the hell I actually was. I swallowed. And the first thing I said was a complaint. “I just realized I missed cupcakes.” Snack time had just occurred. There were cupcakes. Fun fact: I don’t really…

I should help the kids with their rooms, but instead I lack patience – instead, I just do the rooms myself.) I pick up the living room. I pick up the kitchen counters, one at a time. I pick up the dining room so I can pick up the far counter so I can pick up the near counter so I can finally have space to place the dishes as I wash them. Right to center to left to away, dishtowel over my shoulder, a single…

    I joined Facebook on October 24, 2006, on my 28th birthday. Why I joined is pretty boring: I joined because it was the thing you did. I joined because I wanted to be part of a larger society, and it was this network that allowed me to reach out to all of those people I had long forgotten or missed since graduating from high school. In the seven-plus years that followed, I saw Facebook go from what felt like the newest version of MySpace to a multi-billion-dollar company that relied on my data and the data of those around me to sell ads, curate content, and promote events and causes from those…

    “This must be what the Londoners felt like during World War II,” I said to a friend last night. She corrected me and said, no, actually, they were probably scared shitless, and we’re just sitting in the backyard. We fully understand that they these are just fireworks. They will not harm us. They will not take our home or family or country. Yet, as the third straight night of slow rumbles lull me to sleep – booms and crashes off in the distance, seconds apart, like we’re living in the suburb of a warzone, with lights flashing and the occasional close rock of…

    Up until last April, I had never touched the ocean. 1. I had been close to the ocean. I had travelled under the ocean. But I had never actually ventured out to it – never tried to take in its size, or let the salty remnants of millions of years of biological change wash over my feet. The ocean was a thing outside my realm. The ocean was as foreign as India or Japan. Last April, I finally did it. I touched the ocean. The Pacific Ocean, scene of a million surf wipeouts and Instagrammed sunsets. And now, here I was. Ready to do the same on the opposite coast. I got out of my car and walked…

One of the highlights of living in San Francisco is its proximity to “ALL THE THINGS.” Want to go on a short hike? You can hop right to it, and that’s exactly what we did several weekends ago. We went about an hour outside of San Francisco to Lake Lagunitas in Marin. I’d read about Lake Lagunitas in a Weekend Sherpa email and made a mental note of it as being low-key and dog-friendly.

    Hey! It’s a non password protected post! And this one is at least 75% more upbeat than the last two posts. At PT one night, my therapist and I got to talking about our irrational fears. Soon, we had a large group discussion about it and honestly, some of them were pretty funny. I don’t count spiders, rats, heights or confined spaces as irrational fears, it’s more the…uncommon ones. At first, I was all, “heck no I don’t have those!” and then, while doing my second round of “monster walks,” I remembered mine. I have two. I’ve told a…

    In my early 20s, I knew what I wanted to achieve professionally. That goal drove me forward for a very long time. I only wanted that goal met and I wouldn’t let it go. Even when there were signs that maybe I should. Growing up, work is what fed you, literally. It would provide for you, and having one wasn’t for “fun,” it was to let you be independent and self-sufficient. I have been working non-stop since I was 15 years old for that reason. Thus, work has defined me as a person for a very long time. It was the fuel I needed to go forward, the comfort when I had…

The West Wing I love The Newsroom and have seen other Sorkin dramas so I get his “style” but I don’t get it. I’ve watched 6 episodes and it is not clicking for me. Snore.

We would have dances at competitions (since they took ALL DAY) and I always remember hearing this song there. Anyhow, signs. Yeah, I believe in them. Sure some stuff may be coincidental but sometimes, I think there is something that happens that really points out to you what you need to be doing. Here is my recent story about signs. Six weeks ago, walking out of my MRI, my iPhone randomly started playing music. It selected “Hold On” from Neko…

(Braving Costco on a Saturday is no small feat, let me tell you this. A smoothie for $1.50 was a small price to pay to have a calm child.)Anyway, as we were standing there in line, Eisley noticed a little girl who was sitting in a cart over to our left. She burst into a smile and pointed at her, excitedly announcing, "Mommy! She looks like Mulan!" Jay and I glance over and see a small, serious little girl of Asian descent,…

    Yes, indeed, this blanket is finally (finally!) done, as of yesterday. I started this blanket back in June, but never finished it because I ran out of yarn and couldn't find these same colors at any craft store. (I hadn't intended to make a blanket with this yarn when I first purchased it, so I didn't bother to keep the paper with the name/color on it for reference. Lesson learned!) I had the blanket almost completely finished when I ran out of yarn, so I left the poor thing tucked under a table in my crafting nook for months.

I thought I'd share this very simple project with you—especially because it cost a total of around $2 to make the whole thing.I've said it before and I'll say it again: Target's dollar bins speak my love language.I picked up four of these from Target…

Instead of a 5-6 hour stretch to start the night, it’s more like a 4 hour stretch and I won’t blather on about sleep, because I know that he’ll sleep well eventually, but woe. I miss the good sleep! – Is FANTASTIC, however, at falling asleep. I just swaddle him and leave him alone and bam! Sleeping baby. Is awesome. I approve, tiny baby.

    I turned 30 (!) on Tuesday and got to thinking about the lessons I’ve learned over the past three decades. I distilled them down to three ideas that I want to share with you (and remind myself!). Keep my eyes on my own page. Aka: no comparing. Whether I’m comparing for good or bad (“Hey, at least I’m not as bad as X!” or “I’ll never be as good as Y!”), nothing good comes of it. This might look like comparing my business to others, my wardrobe to others, even the size of my thighs to others (I used to be so fixated on comparing my thigh size to…

    There’s a little meme going around Facebook that asks you to share your top 10 books. When I started thinking about the books that changed my life, they were all non-fiction. Maybe that means I’m not reading enough heady fiction books., but reading non-fiction books have been some of the most transformative experiences I’ve undergone in just about every aspect of my life. Career I went from thinking I’d be an elementary teacher at an international school overseas to working for myself as a web designer. How? Books. (Okay, and blogging. And some community college…

    One year ago last Friday was the last day I worked at my office job (an administrative assistant at a high school) to work for myself as a web designer. I have not regretted leaving for even a minute, though I have missed my coworkers and the students I spent my days with. It was my dream to work part-time and I did it. It was also my dream to work for myself from home and, as one of year ago, that’s exactly what I’m doing. It’s surreal in some ways to realize that I what I wanted for years I’m finally doing.

    [September Update] Don’t buy anything except gas and groceries. Success. (Mostly. I bought the pacifiers and an app). I went into Target exactly ONCE (for peanut butter – they have the cheapest natural peanut butter. Did I really just admit that? My life is so exciting I can’t handle it), which is pretty amazing considering most months I’m there weekly. It’s so liberating and freeing to just not have the choice of purchasing things. It definitely helped me get started on a habit I want to develop – waiting at least a week before purchasing something I think I…

I hit my target of running 1000 miles in 2014!!!It's pretty cool to see that number on my RunKeeper app, and it's a little crazy because when I plugged that in at  the beginning of the year it was really just an estimate or "Hm, I wonder if I will ever reach this?" type of a thing.This is the first…

We hit up Larriland Farms with some family friends up in Howard County, picked pumpkins, took a hayride and generally enjoyed the season.   We also saw cows! Ethan has started mooing which is highly amusing. We did not pick Apples (that would have been a nightmare with little man) BUT we did buy some fresh picked ones and so Hubs has been in full on apple baking mode. His first mission? Apple fritters.

Like how most of my days go, which is why I have my tagline, and why I so frequently question if I really exist, or if I'm just actually a real life Truman Show...My life has gotten exceptionally out of control yet again (my chronic case of FOMO insists that I say yes to all the things....) so I'm in a place where I have so much I…
