Fistfights and Unlocking Joy

If you reach into that metaphorical bag of joy...you're bound to come up with something... As I watched two people in front of me in a socially distanced line at a coffee shop almost get into a fistfight, I was snapped out of my reverie. I had been standing there, thinking about what I wanted…

Are we allowed to feel joy right now?

Watching my girl play our wedding song brings me so much joy, or is it happiness, no wait it's joy...oy I don't know anymore... What is happiness and what is joy? I decided to really break it down for myself. People tend to think of me as a supremely happy person, which to an extent…

Is There Anything Else to Talk About?

Hi Friends! Chelsea here. First of all, I have the sweetest neighbor in the world that left notes on all of our doors this morning asking for our numbers so we can take care of each other. Makes my heart so full!! My neighbor is an incredible example during such a crazy time, take note…

Hug Your Chicken

When you walk into the supermarket and there is nothing left on the shelves it’s very hard not to panic. When you are told to stop hugging. When you are told to isolate yourself from the outside world, that too, makes it really hard not to freak out. When you aren’t getting good information or…

Next Stop: Priority Station

This week I had to either reschedule or cancel so many plans I wondered why I even made them in the first place. This is not uncommon for me. I want so badly to say yes to everything and everyone that I say yes without really thinking or looking at my calendar. I end up…

I Will Not Eat Your Comparison Pie

Comparison is bad news bears. Comparison takes the joy that I am holding so delicately in my hand like the most perfect little flower and crushes it with a hammer the size of Venus. How do we cope with comparison? Why do we compare? I wake up in the morning and immediately it begins, the…

I Can Only Think About Elephants

As someone whose mind runs on high speed pretty much all the time being in the moment is always something that I thought wasn't accessible to me. I decided I really wanted to puzzle this one out and these are the very early stages of me figuring out how to be in the moment. I…

Ohhhh…I’m Allowed to Have Feelings

I'm pretty much one of the most emotional people ever...just ask my family...so when I was all of the sudden stuck and confused as to why I wanted to just put my head through a wall out of frustration and I didn't know why...I needed to call for backup from my oh-so-wise-thank-goodness-I-married-a-sage other half. Take…

Someone Dropped Me Off At the Wrong Competition…

I was having such a tough time putting into words (that made sense) on the page this time around, so I am trying something new here! Most normal people would probably choose to dress up and put some fresh makeup on before filming their first video for their blog, but apparently, nope, not me...was just…

I Always Feel Bad For Tuesdays

I always feel bad for Tuesdays. Even as a kid I never liked Tuesdays. For some reason Tuesdays always made me a little bit angry because they weren’t the halfway point in the week, they weren’t the beginning of the week. They’re kind of like the February of weekdays. But I think it’s unfair that…
