UUUUHHHHHH.....

Tina Belcher So much has been going on since January 1st, that it's no wonder why you haven't heard from me lately. I briefly mentioned my trials and tribulations last week but while everyone is busy putting their best foot forward on instagram this year, I've been busy trying not to have a crap attack. If you watch Bob's Burgers, you understand this statement. Team Tina Belcher for the win.

Don't get me wrong, I totally had good intentions of starting 2014 off with a bang just like the rest of the world but instead I landed with one pissed off cat, new roommates and a carnival of circus folk. Seriously, I haven't slept in days. I'm all in for a good story or two but lately mi vida loca has turned into a telenovela for the books.

Not all is lost though. In this entertaining mess, I've been working hard on some exciting new steps. I guess you can call this my pivotal balancing act with the Universe. So how am I keeping my head above water? Well, thankfully I have an amazing group of friends and a mother that keeps it real. Plus add in Danielle LaPorte's latest book The Desire Map to the mix and you have salvation. Special thanks to Sarah from Very Sarie for pointing me to this book. It's my secret weapon in the battle against the UUUUUUHHHHHHs.

I know I can't be alone in this state so hollaback with what works for you when you may have a little too much on your plate.
