I’m Heather: an average twenty-something wife and mother who writes about learning to just be.
I have three children: a 5 year old, a 4 year old, and a 3 month old. They are sweet and crazy.
I love [LOVE] to read, and have a not-so-secret addiction to YA novels. In 2012, I set a New Years’ resolution to read 50 books within the year. I read 79. It’s the only resolution I’ve ever kept and I’m pretty damn proud of it. (But I will never again read another parenting book in my life.)
I do my best writing after 2 cups of coffee, and I love getting addicted to tv shows. I can’t sit through a movie but you get me hooked on a show and I will devote every spare second of my life to it.
I’m a [recovering] compulsive binge eater. Disordered eating is (mostly) a thing of the past…but intuitive eating is an elusive bitch, yo. Let’s discuss.
I’ve dealt with depression/anxiety/related issues on and off for about a decade. I’m no expert nor am I qualified in any way to give advice, but if sharing bits of my story helps even one person feel less alone, it’s worth it.
I believe that we could all use a little less insecurity-fueled “self-improvement” propaganda and a little more self-acceptance in our lives.
And I believe that it’s okay to just be ‘okay’ sometimes.
Maybe a little mediocrity is what we need.
