There Is No Better Than Here

I really appreciated everyone's comments last week on finding balance, and whether or not it's important or possible, or even the point. Kind of along those lines I came across these ten rules for life the other day, and thought I would share them here. I especially like #6, and think that's one I probably Read more…

Still Not Good Enough

It's been four months since I started my Good Enough Project.  I've been so lax about mentioning it lately that I think I should recap: Around the beginning of October I started feeling like everything in my life was sort of getting the good enough treatment. As in, I'm doing a good enough job at Read more…

About Those Resolutions

I'm writing this on Sunday night. I've just put Veronica to sleep and I'm sitting next to the fireplace. It's like 10 degrees outside. The house is quiet. Greg sits behind me at his desk, writing, wearing headphones. It's the second day of the new year. I made a simple Sunday supper, we opened a Read more…

On Finding Peace, When You Least Expect It

It's Monday midday, and I'm sitting in a coffee shop near my office. I'm in that interim between work and home, so often only experienced in the car, those short twenty minutes sometimes the only time I have to myself each day. My good enough project has been lagging a bit. Or maybe it has Read more…

How Having a Baby Ruined My Marriage (Kidding, Sort Of)

I always cringe now when I hear someone on a TV show (or God forbid, real life) say something about how they want to have a baby so that it will bring their marriage back around. Having a baby didn't really ruin my marriage, but it sure did change it. Greg and I had only Read more…

Confession: I’m Not Very Good at Normal Life

This is a confession of sorts. The gist of it? I'm not that good at living a normal life. This is something I learned about myself a long time ago, but it's something I seem to forget from time to time. In thinking about my good enough project, and the hows and whys and the Read more…

The Thing Itself, and Not the Myth

So, things have been going well this week. I'm surprised to say that I already feel a slight shift. A certain levity, and the briefest hint of something even better to come. I've accomplished most of the items on my week's to-do list, which has felt encouraging. On Monday morning I went to a yoga Read more…

Is it Possible to Miss Yourself?

I'm writing this with tears in my eyes. I just finished reading through some of my old, LA archives and they left me with my heart in my throat. Today I was thinking about that time in my life, just over three years ago. I was 28 and living in Los Angeles and it was Read more…

Good Enough Project: Week One

Okay, so I'm serious about this project. Ever since I wrote that first post I've been giving this a lot of thought. The thing is that I'm just not satisfied with the way my life has been unfolding. And I'm determined to do something about it. Like I said, I feel like I've been on Read more…

On Finding Purpose & Intent

Greg and I ran the Bucktown 5k this morning, getting up earlier than usual, and dropping Veronica off at Sandy & Sarah's for the morning. (As payback they made us pancakes when we got back. Rude, right??) Greg made Veronica try on his running vest before we left. You know, for a Twitter photo op Read more…
