• Yes, You Can

    December 31, 2016 Kate

    A quick and largely unoriginal New Years thought for you… I’m not big on New Years resolutions—January 1st doesn’t feel extraordinarily more promising than the start of any other day—but I do like to reflect on the year that’s passed. (Unoriginal already, told ya.) This little shift in thinking has had the biggest impact on my life recently. I pay attention to all the…

  • You Only Have to do One Thing Today

    August 20, 2016 Kate

    You know what sucks? Ending the day and feeling like you’ve accomplished nothing. Especially when you were busy all day (Hi, emails). You know what’s worse? Ending the week, month, or even the year *gulp* feeling like you’ve accomplished nothing. I’m all about the to-do list. ALL about it. And I’ll have days when I’m ripping through that list…

  • Procrastinating is a Procrastination Hack

    August 10, 2016 Kate

    Now I haven’t been experimenting with this for very long, BUT, I think procrastinating might actually be a procrastination hack. Hear me out. I’m in the kitchen making my 11th tea of the day (I have a legit problem) and my brain hits me with remember-the-thing-you-promised-yourself-you’d-finish-every-morning-for-the-past-week-and-you-haven’t-yet-because-you-suck-geeze-what-a-loser-you-can’t-get-anything-done-you’re-hopeless. And I’m faced with two options. A: Do the work. B: Grab…

  • Whatever You’re Scared Of, Do That

    July 28, 2016 Kate

    Ahhh the midlife crisis. Or quarter life crisis. Or this week crisis. (?) We’ve all been there. And we’ll all be there again. That super fun feeling of being completely, utterly stuck and not knowing what to do next. But you know what the cool thing is? You do know. You do know what you…

  • Procrastination Is A Habit We Can Change

    July 19, 2016 Kate

    Oh, what’s that sound? Just me eating my own words. As it turns out, that stirring declaration I made about writing a blog post every day for two weeks (no excuses, Kate! It’s only 14 days, Kate! Everyone has 30 minutes, Kate!) didn’t stick. My inner procrastinator found a friend in my perfectionist tendencies and, well, here we are a few…

  • Treat Your Life as a Series of Two Week Experiments

    July 15, 2016 Kate

    This. This I can do. Committing to an indefinite lifestyle change is, well, daunting. “I’m going to start waking up earlier! I’m going to start running! I’m going to start eating healthy!” Somehow the larger the undertaking feels, the easier it is to keep pushing the start date. “I’ll start tomorrow!” turns into months, or even…

  • Rethinking Blogging

    January 27, 2016 Kate

    So here’s the deal. Blogging just hasn’t been working for me. (That either sounds ridiculous considering I hardly blog or totally obvious considering I hardly blog…) Nearly every month I promise myself I’ll get more consistent with posting and nearly every month it’s radio silence as usual. It’s not the content or ideas I struggle with—there’s…

  • Who Should You Follow?

    November 4, 2015 Kate

    Do you ever find yourself scrolling through your phone, shaking your head thinking “… Who the heck am I following?!” Why am I looking at all these perfectly curated photo’s of DIYs I have no interest in making? Why are there so many succulents and copper accents and fringed accessories? Why am I looking at this? I…

  • On Blogging… Honestly

    July 12, 2014 Kate

    This is a subject I’ve been thinking about quite a lot lately, what do we choose to share with others online and why. Why do I use Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest? How do I blog? What do I get out of it? I never want to share things online just to try and prove I’m ‘cool’…

  • Tracing Threads

    April 8, 2013 Kate

    Well, I’ve finally taken the time to start a blog (I deemed the internet wasn’t riddled with enough of them). It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while now, likely for the same reasons most people start blogging, I wanted a place to share and explore my passion. That passion, I’ve discovered, is making…
