Those of you know me, know I love and chase adventure. 2 years ago I moved to Washington for the opportunities and adventure. I met some of the best and worst people of my life (I wasn't in Minnesota nice anymore). I will never tear someone down the way I was my first year here. Through hiking I was able to escape and push myself. I was able to tear my muscles in hikes so they could rebuild stronger for the next. °

I can't wait for year 3 in WA keeping a distance from the appearance of perfection and negativity and staying close everything else 🏞️. °

I've been doing a lot of self assessment this season; summer soaked in thought. Giving myself care and kindness never comes easy. Support is necessary but sometimes hard to ask for and receive. You are worth it, never forget this, even when it's dark. #selfcare #summer #mentalhealth #hope #recovery #stigmafree #selflove

Trigger Warning:
This is a tough one but it has been on my mind for a couple of months.
I have purposely blacked out the words to preserve handwiritng anonymity.
In college they teach you how to deal with the what are typically thought to be the toughest parts of teaching: management, parent involvement, standards, testing...etc.

I think the toughest part for me is the stories. The assignment was to draw out the scars on your body and one of my students drew out scars from self harm and past suicide attempts. I remember slamming the journal shut and talking laps around the classroom—hoping that when I opened it again those scars would fade away. As teachers, we remain professional and report concerns to the necessary people— we don’t talk about going on autopilot and not remembering if you even gave the same assignment for the second half of the day, or the crying in the middle school bathroom like we are in middle school again ourselves.
This wasn’t the first student I knew of that was dealt this extent of crap set of cards for life.
You can get over the late nights of grading papers, laminating, reorganizing books, administration meetings, target shopping trips, and even angry parent phone calls matter. Once the relationship with kids is built there has always been an underlying guilt of “I NEED to be better so I can give more to these kids because they deserve it.” And that is the hardest part of teaching for me.

Throwback pic from when I was in NYC 🗽🏙️
.
It’s hard for me to look at old-ish pictures of myself because I’ve definitely gained weight (which I have learned to accept) but when everywhere you look says “smaller is better!” It’s hard to remember that my happiness and self-love and respect is worth SO MUCH MORE than my size will ever be. .
So I’m cool with gaining some weight if that means I’ve also gained love, appreciation, freedom, true health, and respect for myself 😊✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼 .
(Also my hair has definitely grown which is super cool 💁🏼‍♀️)

Today was our last day at the cottage. You know that feeling? The sinking stomach, the heavy heart, the wistful stare across the lake as you wish you could bottle it all up and take it home with you. Of course you can’t, because all good things must end. That much we know for sure—it’s been told to us since childhood to explain inexplicable endings of things like candy floss, friendships, familial happiness. As I floated out on my inflatable pizza slice (an inflatable pizza slice is part of this story. I can’t and won’t change that for the sake of tone and imagery), I was quietly saying my goodbye to this restful and sunshine-filled week, preparing for the return to real life. And it got me thinking about how life comes in waves, and as surely as this wave of pleasure must end, a wave of difficulty is sure to come at some point. Last year, that wave was a tsunami. It swept me up, thrashed me around, and threatened to flatten everything in its path. But then it left. The pastor at my husband’s family’s church said in January, “I can promise you one thing. This year will be amazing. It may also be horrible. But then it will be amazing again”. That stuck to my ribs. I loved that. So tonight, I’m reminding myself that endings can be merciful too. Here’s to endings. 💫

Whe you let the breath be as it is, there’s a lot you’re NOT doing.
You’re not reacting to a thought or a feeling.
You’re not judging yourself for the thoughts and feelings that come up, labelling them as bad or good, painful or frustrating.
We’re not controlling it or trying to push it away.
We’re not trying to hold onto things that might feel good for a moment.
We’re not getting frustrated that these thoughts and feelings are still coming up after we spent ALL THIS TIME meditating- so we let go of our narrative around what we think and feel.
If you let go of these habits, even for a few moments, you plant seeds of transformation. Because when you let everything be as it is, you see that whatever is coming up is very different to what you ‘thought’ it was.
When you get distracted (those thoughts and stories will pull you back), simply be aware of it and start again.

There has been too much death. There has been too much heartache. There has been too much loss. Some of the most iconic people of my generation, gone. Gone too young. Gone before they could truly live their lives. We cry and we mourn and we all say we wish there was something more we could do. There is. We can raise up our horns, recognize that depression, anxiety, and mental illness is nothing of which to be ashamed, and give those demons a voice instead of trying to ignore them. That’s why I’m here, raising my horns, standing by @officiallzzyhale in the hopes that one day we can all live and survive. For Chester. For Chris. For Jill. For everyone.

When I first made the decision to get Norman I use to joke that he was an essential part of my mental health plan. This was to help justify spending money I didn’t have 💰
Although I would laugh along with everyone as I used this as an “excuse” I was sure from the start that this would be true. 🐶 & boy was I right! This little man has played such an important role in my recovery. It’s impossible to feel alone with a companion like this. Despite the day I’m having, as soon as I’m cuddled up with Norman or watching him run an absolute muck, all of a sudden I feel a sense of relief. A relief that everything is going to be okay. 🙌🏼
I know, I know he is a dog, not a person.
But what is better than having someone get excited every single time they see you without fail. Look up at you with the most loving eyes regardless of if you look your best, or your worst. Someone who will always love you more than they love themselves. I could honestly go on & on about how much love this guy gives me, but you get the point❣️
So thank you Norman. You’re my best friend & I promise I’ll never stop being obsessed with you 🐶

For once, I will hop on a trending hashtag: LET’S TALK ABOUT #RaiseYourHorns FOR A MINUTE BECAUSE the conversation in the rock and metal world regarding mental health following the apparent suicide of Jill Janus is really important.
Preachy posts aren’t really my thing, so please bear with me as I leave a couple small reminders and thoughts.
.
.
.

If it’s your loved one suffering, tell them you love them, listen to them, help them if they’ll let you (sometimes even day-to-day maintenance can be a crippling task), and be there for them while they learn how to help themselves.
.
.
.
If it’s you, it IS hard, and I’m with you. I get that some days are good and some days there’s no serenity to be found anywhere for you, no happiness for you, no place for you, no reason for you, no escape... I get you; I’ve been you, and occasionally I still am you. .
.
.
(Hi worried loved ones reading this, I am okay now, I formed new habits and am working always to move forward into a brighter and healthier headspace🖤) .
.
.
Art (and specifically metal) was and is an escape; it let me know there were people who understood and felt the same, it brought me to them and to healers. Eventually it became an outlet for my own demons and fascination with death, it put a positive and peaceful spin on my obsession with the (in)significance of humanity, and it continues to ground me when anxiety kicks in with a surprise attack. I hope that I can repay this to any degree; that even one person would find solace in my art.
.
.
.
The passing of Jill is something I didn’t expect to feel so profoundly; she and her bandmates were not people I knew for more than a single show we played together. But, I think it hit close to home for a lot of us... Whether it’s because we struggle with invisible demons and the stigma around them, or because we love someone who does.
I guess this is all to say: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Something to celebrate! I feel normal today! Lots of stress this past month as my dad goes through chemo and my mom had a couple medical procedures. I’m the only child so their extra care is in my hands all while I struggled with how the stress affects my rheumatoid arthritis. But today is the first day I feel like ME. I’ve been eating less (it helps my joints)- mostly healthy food, praying, meditating. It ALL helps. I care for my kids and my parents now. It was intimidating to shift into this mode. To be honest, it’s impossible to take care of myself perfectly all the time, but it means making a plan to fit in my care by what gives me the biggest bang for my buck...like a shower, a good breakfast smoothie, and meditation. And my parents? Things are looking good for them too...finally! #imstillstanding #spoonie #rheumatoidarthritis #wellnesscoach #wellnesswarrior #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillnessawareness #lifestyleblogger #momlife #betterdays #thesunisshining #imnotperfect #strongerthanyesterday #strongerthanwhatailsme #mommyblogger #goodvibes #stress #mentalhealth

We are all guilty of it. Fix your mistakes before I fix mine. But that is a selfish outlook. Let’s try to be more mindful of our own mistakes and making sure we correct our own inaccuracies first. Then and only then are we able to try to help others.

Thanks to some wisdom from @mike.schaeffer I’ve decided to track my food. Never done it before, even including during my 130 pounds of weight loss. My weight ballooned up big time thanks to CRAP eating. So, tracking everything is a nice accountability. Noticing minor differences. I still feel like a fat whale, and ripping my pants at work didn’t help either.l

Five years of some weird body transitions. I feel like the inflatable tube man in front of car dealers. 😂😭

I guess I, or Instagram deleted this picture when I posted it last 🤦‍♂️ I believe this is the infamous face my Mom coins as the “Nate pouting face.” Normally when A, I don’t get my way or B, Bengals lose. So, everyone sees it frequently 😂 So, here it is on record. If I remember this moment correctly, Kelly was mentioning how nice my butt was (not well shown) and I was thinking about how hungry I was. 😂
