This past weekend, I was home visiting my parents. Now, my mom is my best friend, my ride-or-die, but whenever she asks these four little words I cringe: HOW ARE YOU DOING? I know it's coming from love. She wants to be a support system, a shoulder to cry on, offer reassurance & just make … Continue reading YOU ARE NOT A BURDEN
This weekend I did some reflecting, a lot of reflecting actually. I poured my soul out to my therapist, mother & friends. I had a breakthrough in 'why I do the things I do.' It was eye-opening, surprising, and allowed to to connect-the-dots in certain areas of my life. And it brought a lifelong curiosity … Continue reading DOES ‘EVERYTHING HAPPEN FOR A REASON’?
I guess the internet is the perfect place to be vulnerable, so here I go. I'm currently laying down on my living room floor, making a body imprint on my shag rug, still in my pajamas from last night. I feel bloated, heavy, ashamed, pathetic, and misunderstood. It's no secret that fear and shame, by … Continue reading VULNERABILITY AMID THE STRUGGLE
We live in a world where media idealizes human perfection. There's always another milestone to be hit, pound to be lost, men to be met, & goal to be reached in order to be content. In order to turn inward & figure out my genuine wants, I have to block out the noise. I need … Continue reading MY VISION BOARD & A MANIFESTING MINDSET
A day in my shoes. 10 miles, 20k steps, sunshine, friends, family, cocktails, & even a little relaxation. What more can I ask for?
SO MANY FEELS. Are you with me? If you saw from my last post, the only way I can describe this past year is mumbo-jumbo (literally, I can't find a better phrase than that.) I'm sharing all of this because I know I’m not alone and sometimes it’s just okay to not be okay. I … Continue reading THOUGHTS, ENEGRY, & MUMBO-JUMBO
After some time away, something out there in the universe has have brought me back to this account. I created Mindfully Sarah (the original blog name) to be open and honest with myself in the hopes to keep myself going and pushing others to be the best version of themselves. However, life happens and this … Continue reading THE RETURN, REINVENT, & REBUILD
"I could've done better", "I should have ...", "I can't", "I'm not good enough", "I'll fail" Take a second to think about your day thus far. Have any of these phrases popped-up? Are they part of your everyday dialogue? Are you stuck in unnecessary suffering? For the last few months, the majority these thoughts have been … Continue reading CHOOSE TO SURRENDER
Hello, Hi, Remember Me? It's been a minute, but I'm excited to be back. I don't like admitting my downfalls, but I have completely been stuck in a fog since May. I'm proud of myself for what I've been able to accomplish this year at work and in my relationship, but I'm also extremely stuck … Continue reading THE COMEBACK
I just returned home from another great weekend in Austin, TX visiting my boyfriend! I think one of my favorite things about Austin is how vibrantly individualistic it is: food trucks, nature/city vibes, cool houses, beautiful views, and a blend of people. This is my THIRD post about my Austin travels & recommendations. Be sure … Continue reading TRAVEL CHRONICLES: AUSTIN, TX (Part 3)
