I Need a Hug

I have so many amazing takeaways from the recent episode of Brene Brown’s Unlocking Us podcast where she has both Emily and Amelia Nagoski on to discuss Burnout and How To Complete the Stress Cycle. 🔓🔥 I can not recommend it enough (PS – Brene Brown’s brand new podcast, Daring to Lead, launched yesterday — I… Continue reading I Need a Hug


Do you ever feel trapped, mentally and / or physically? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Maybe it’s in a physical space, a job, a relationship, thoughts in your head or emotions and feelings in your heart 🧠💞 Sometimes I spend so much time overthinking and running possible scenarios through my head that I become uncertain of what has actually… Continue reading Trapped

Summer Has Come and Passed

Actual photos of me all day today. All day? Who am I kidding, this is me more days than not. ⚖️ Feeling all the feelings, thinking all the things and maxing out with all of the “over”s. 🙂☹️🙃🤪 Overwhelmed. Overworked. Overreacting. Overachiever. Overprotective. Over-thinker. 🤬 But, also… Overjoyed. 💞 Dancing along the fine line of… Continue reading Summer Has Come and Passed

It was written almost one year ago (8/22/19), which was particularly interesting to consider given what the past five months have looked… Continue reading Our Places

Black Lives Matter

Somewhere around 4am, I found myself wide awake and unable to fall back asleep.  The thoughts keeping me awake were not really anything new. Not only is racism not getting better, in some ways things are actually getting worse.  I am not an expert, and would never claim to be, and I know that I… Continue reading Black Lives Matter


I’ve never tried running more than a few yards while pushing a stroller, but you know what else I have never done? Tried running while being chased down, as I feared and fought for my life. I’ve always been told that people fear what they do not know and do not understand. That does not… Continue reading #RunWithMaud
