Option B: Finding Self-Compassion In the Face of Adversity

Option B: Finding Self-Compassion In the Face of Adversity

12:30pm Saturday, June 16th I’m sitting at C-Bear’s desk right now (shhh…she doesn’t know), overlooking the colourful part of SoMa where we reside with Coffee Table Jazz music playing in the background. The sun is out and there’s not much time left before I have […]

Why Romances Fail and Past Projections Prevail

Why Romances Fail and Past Projections Prevail

I am sitting on the hardwood floor in my apartment tonight. Our apartment is an disarray right now. We just sold our barstools and sofa, so the only place we can sit is literally on the cold hard floor. Packing boxes tower above me.  Lately, […]

Living Success as a Mindset and Way of Life

Living Success as a Mindset and Way of Life

I’m not doing anything particularly productive this Saturday afternoon. Usually time flies when you’re having fun… but in my case, every second feels the same because not a word or thought has decided to form in my brain and I’m just sitting at home, staring […]

First Encounter with the American Health-Care System (Not That Great TBH)

First Encounter with the American Health-Care System (Not That Great TBH)

Photo credit I wanted to share my first experience with the American Health-Care System—it’s a long story, so bear with me. The health-care system and researching how it all works was not high on my list of priorities when I thought of when moving to […]

Can you throw out the laundry list of bad & accept who you are?

Can you throw out the laundry list of bad & accept who you are?

Lessy’s Laundry List of Bad Qualities: I’m clumsy. I spill things. I get too emotional. I say what I feel… no filters needed. When things get tough, I retreat into my own shell and feel defeated until I feel recharged again. I am passionate, then […]

Who Are You In The Midst of Conflict?

A Day In The Life, The Moment Is Now

A Day In The Life, The Moment Is Now

6:30 pm I’m sitting at a table in a public space in front of Book Passage, the magical little bookstore that operates in the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, also known as “San Francisco’s liveliest bookstore.” Laptop is open and I’m typing […]

Do You Hold On To Who You Used To Be?

Do You Hold On To Who You Used To Be?

It’s the end of February already. Phew.  It was a tough and exciting month and one fraught with unexpected twists and change. It was the first time I spent Valentine’s Day as a singleton, and it was also the first official year that I’ve been […]

What It’s Like To Become The Person You Want To Date

What It’s Like To Become The Person You Want To Date

Utah & Texas Musings I’m still up after finishing a little bit of email correspondence. All the while, I am laying in a big comfortable bed in a hidden gem of a hotel in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, called the Ashton. It’s 2:04 am right now, […]

January 2018: The Great American Roadtrip to Napa Valley

It’s been 2018 for almost a month now… and it’s gone by like a whirlwind.  Lastest update? Well, I just learned that you need to be really careful with the superglue tube, or else it will spill all over your fingers and then it’ll be […]
