how do you create balance? + other stuff

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

Anyone else struggling to accept that Summer is over? Maybe I'm blaming it on the high temps still plaguing Texas, or perhaps I just haven't come to terms with the twins being back in school full-time. Either way, I am slowly starting to sink into the school year routine and the hectic schedule it brings. 


This year, the focus is on being intentional with my goals and maintaining some work/life balance. I know a lot of people strive for that, so,  I am curious if you have any hot tips for creating balance in your life? If so, send them my way!

Sounds easy enough, right?  Wrong. Why is it wrong? Well, that's because not every day allows for all of those things to happen. Most of them, yes, but every day? No.  I don't know about you, but sometimes I get so caught up in all the other stuff I forget to even do the easy thing, like drink enough water or go to bed at a decent time. In years past, I probably would have let it consume me.  But, I am noticing how important it is for the first time in my life, so I would say that there is progress in the right direction. 


I wish you all forward motion in your struggles and smiles across your faces. 


Be well,












See my August Standouts!

social media + me.

I lost my mind again and deleted everything from my feed. ( Like that matters!) I can't seem to strike a healthy balance with Instagram. One second it's fun, then it becomes just me scrolling and comparing and most importantly, wasting time. The struggle is real, y'all. I am having fun in the stories, though! To the ones that have stuck around, and for the continued love and connection you bring to my life, thank you!

Anyone on TikTok? My favorite @garyvee is hyping it up, probably due to investment, but it does seem fun! Full disclosure, I don't know how to use it, and my track record with Social Media is garbage, but you can follow me @callacreates  - I have approximately zero posts.  

I've added more songs to the "Catching Vibes &  Spirit Signs" playlist on Spotify

How has music helped you heal? What songs mean the most to you?
