While I've always had this sense of knowing that all the ideas we’ve explored in this space are connected and intertwined somehow, it hasn't always been easy to see and understand those connections. And that fuzziness about how it all fit together made it really hard to articulate what I do, and what it all stands for. But after working with a dear (genius!) friend for a couple of months now to sift through all these ideas and make sense of them, we've found the thread — the through-line that ties these ideas all together, and gives them a singular, clear purpose.Read More
From looking around at all the people I love and admire online, it seems like everyone has their own way of moving from one year into the next. Some are eager to sit down with their resource of choice - their Desire Map or their PowerSheets or some other introspective guide - to carefully go over what happened last year, and how to shape the coming year. They reflect, and they brainstorm, and they plan. (This is me. And it takes an embarrassing amount of restraint not to want to use #allthetools.)Read More
There’s something so satisfying about arriving at an answer, solution, or a decision that sticks. Maybe it’s a promising relationship you stumbled into after a sea of bad first dates; or the new name for your blog or business that came to you out of nowhere after months of racking your brain for ideas; or the new workout studio that seems to be holding your interest longer than all those other gym memberships before it. The one that makes you think, “THIS. Yes. This’ll be the one that changes things for the better.”Read More
I’ve realized that here, in this space we’ve created at Bloomology, we tend to 'go big.'
As we each walk the never-ending tightrope of balancing our naturally-big hearts with those big forces we recognize within ourselves (think forces like wisdom, quiet strength, and intuition) – we use this space at Bloomology to unpack and explore big questions. We willingly deep-dive into big, weighty questions that might stir up some uncomfortable feelings or tough questions within ourselves.Read More
Each year as January approaches, I naturally start thinking big. I start seeing big, vivid pictures of the imaginary new life I plan to start living come January 1st. Big goals, big ideas, big changes. I start imagining a new 2.0 self emerging in the new year, ready to live and behave in new, shiny, inspiring ways. For me, my imagined new life feels clean, clear, and electrically calm. My days are methodical, my relationships are thriving, my fridge is full of vegetables and whole grains… and I’m crushing my big, shiny goals.
The truth is, I’ve always loved the tradition of not just making resolutions, but indulging in big, dreamy ideas of what life in the new year will feel like.Read More
Meaningful change is overwhelming, and focusing on all the things between you and the finish line can take the wind right out of your sails. But narrowing your focus to one small, manageable step can be enough to help you get that first bit of traction - and finding fulfillment in seeing that one thing through with soul and with purpose helps build momentum. That momentum is key for making meaningful progress towards things that matter.Read More
It’s that time again. And if you’ve somehow missed all the back to school ads, the barrage of pleas for cooler weather on your Facebook feed, or the fact that a pumpkin spice latte now officially has a Twitter account (I kid you not), let me clue you in: September is here, and fall is coming. In this post, I will not be professing my love for all things pumpkin, no matter how real that love might be. This is not a post about cozy scarves, or colorful changing leaves, or my desperation to bring boots back into my wardrobe rotation.
This is a post about transition.Read More
