31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #10 — No One’s Harder On Me Than ME.

In my ideal world, I’d be blogging every day with months of content queued up so I could spend my days exploring other interests, and living my life like a normal person — like those people I see on Netflix who go to bed at reasonable hours and look […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #9 — The Practice of Patience – Learning to Play the Long Game

In the #BloggerLife, I need to accept that success won’t come overnight. I’ve never been the best at exercising patience, but if I’m looking to build something that’ll last and make its mark on the world around it, I need to build it right, giving it whatever time and […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #6 — Push Past Your Limits!!!

I wish I could show people what it’s like in my head. Though I don’t always produce by putting content out as often as my peers who have, let’s say, more time on their hands, the intent’s always there. The #BloggerLife’s constantly competing with the rest of my […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #5 — I’m My Own Worst Enemy

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31 — #3: It’s Okay to Outgrow Things!

Life changes only help cement things we know already. At our 2011 wedding, I knew there were plenty in attendance who I wasn’t seeing again anytime soon, with me moving from Mississauga to eastern Toronto, and frankly, changing my priorities as I made room for new things in […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #2 — Your Parents are Real People… Just Like You!

Parenting is no joke. Though I’m only 18 months into my parenting journey, I’ve already taken note of ways my behaviour’s impacting my impressionable little son.
