When Push Comes to Shove

Life. It's always give us new twists and turns. Sometimes we have no idea what is just around the next corner. We can to an extent control those twists and turns, but sometimes they just come out of nowhere and we are forced outside our comfort zones.

The comfort zone is something I feel like I have been clinging onto for way to long. I have made safe choices and I hardly ever leave room in my life for risk. I am starting to feel like that is a mistake.

I am not growing any more because I am refusing to push myself. I thought I was pushing, but now that I look at the past few months, I've really made the same choices I've always made. It's a pattern so to say.

Today I am making a pledge to not just push myself, but to shove myself off that ledge. I have to many dreams I am not pursuing because I am staying safe. I don't want to regret those decisions in 10 years. I want to know I tried. I did everything I could to pursue those dreams.

If they don't work out, I hope I at least find another path along the way. But I will know I tried my hardest to get there.

This is something that has been pressing on my mind heart lately. It's been heavy. It's been a different kind of uncomfortable. It's a reminder that we all eventually run out of time, but also a reminder that it's never to late to start.

Maybe that is why this blog still seems to be standing still. I have ideas, but they never come through. I don't want to let this space go. I love coming here, but I also realize how much I neglect it and all of my readers by not showing up.

It's not you. It's me.

I'm the scared one. I need to get over that and let the creativity and ideas shine through.

Now on to figuring out how to get my butt in gear.

There Are My Obsessions: Fall 2017

I realized I have never done an obsessions list. Or in better terms, a list of things I am loving at the moment. This came to my attention last night when I realized I have a very real obsession with a new drink I just tried.

My first obsession is kind of a double whammy. I am in love with the eatery CoreLife. This is a chain restaurant that opened here a few months ago. I have been several times now and it is amazing. It keeps me in check with eating healthy. The pricing is reasonable and the servings are large. They have selections of salads, broth bowls, and grain bowls. They have a fantastic blog as well that has healthy lifestyle tips. They currently have 23 locations and they are opening more stores through 2018!

Now this next obsession also comes from Core Life. They have a seasonal drink for Fall and it is apple cider green tea. It is to die for! It is just perfect in flavor. I am going to be super sad when this drink goes bye bye.

Now that it is officially Fall, I am so happy to get all things pumpkin and spice out. I will admit I have only had two pumpkin spice coffee's since they came out, but part of that is I work at home and I don't go out as much anymore. I am however rocking my Leaves candle which makes everything smell amazing. Obsessed.

I bought a new velvety soft blanket at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago, and now that it is getting chilly out. I am in love! It is just what I needed to keep my all snug and warm through the winter.

So what have you been obsessed with lately?

OMG I'm Alive!

Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to pop in to say hello and to assure everyone I was indeed alive. I finally decided to take a well needed break. September was super busy for me and I just needed a few weeks to be lazy on my couch. #sorrynotsorry.

So how are all of you? I hope well! I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs. I miss reading. I will say it has been super nice to stay off my computer after work hours, but I do miss the blogging community when I'm taking a break.

I have so many drafts ready to go that I need to add finishing touches to, so hopefully I will get some done this weekend and get posting!

I celebrated my 1 year wedding anniversary on September 24th. I want to share on that. I also want to share on my trip way back on labor day weekend. That was an amazing trip and much needed. I also promised a stitch fix post on my 5 of 5 keeper.

It's all coming! I promise!

So tell me something good that happened to you this week?

Happy weekend!
