Virtual Coffee Date [#2]

If we were having coffee I’d share with you…

I’ve just returned from an amazing weekend running around L.A. and Harry Potter World with my best gal pals

Old friends truly are gold, not many other would put up with, let alone,  join in the constant singing of Christmas Carols. But, they’re not above secretly record videos of these private off-key performances…

I’d tell you that an automatic cat feeder is my favorite purchase as of late, no more crying cats in the A.M.

Barre class has somehow found its way to be my favorite workout class. It’s incredibly challenging, but feels great as re-entry to strengthening muscles. If it’s Flybarre vs. PureBarre I would choose Flybarre every time. It’s less scripted and equally effective.

I have a post about Croatia to share, but I need to add the pictures before it’s ready. All in good time.

I’m still crushing on the Brene Brown’s work. She’s a researcher, speaker, author of several books.  Shoutout to spending a weekend with friends with whom I can unapologetically be myself and belong (rather than fit in).

“One of the biggest surprises in this research was learning that fitting in and belonging are not the same thing. In fact, fitting in is one of the greatest barriers to belonging. Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be in order to be accepted. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn’t require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are.”

I researched the psychology of human relationships, communication methods and outcomes for my senior capstone project. Brené’s research is my bread and butter.

One more Daring Greatly quote:

“The willingness to show up changes us, It makes us a little braver each time.”

That’s all for today. Those Croatia pictures are coming soon, I promise.
