Off to the Woods

24-Jan-2014

There are times in life when the world seems like it is spinning a bit too fast and we’re gradually being left far behind, and for some reason things stop making the proper sense and start dancing a strange out-of-step dance. That’s quite normal, since everyone passes through troubling moments sometimes, but the way each one of us manages to take things back under control is the main point of living a lovely and excitingly free life.

Homemade Vegetable Stock

24-Jan-2014

I make all of my own vegetable stock. Being from New England, we have a relatively long winter, and that means a lot of soup. Plus soup is a great way to stretch any vegetables that you may have left at the end of the week. Buying prepared stock from the grocery store is expensive, and you can never be sure what exactly is in the box. Luckily, making your own is so easy!

6 signs that you're relying on a sugar daddy/sugar mamma

22-Jan-2014

If you let others control your money, you're leaving your financial destiny in their hands Learning how to step into your money power and creating financial independence for yourself does wonders for your self-esteem. I truly believe that nothing strengthens your core power and self-confidence like learning how money works and how to make and manage money. I went through a divorce in my twenties and although I had always been very independent, I must admit that I worried about making it on my own. So many of my friends enjoyed two household incomes, and I was about to embark on a solo money life. Would I make it?

Take a Chance on Yourself

21-Jan-2014

The late Heath Ledger once said, “If you’re just safe about the choices you make, you don’t grow.” How dangerous it is; and scary is change for growth? The greatest fear we all face is that of change, for we all have a certain level of fear to that which is foreign to us. We fight to keep things the same, to keep our days similar, our friend’s common, and our lives usual. We don’t trust our selves in the moments that are foreign to us, and that is understandable. It is scary to take chances, to try new things and search into the unknown because you never know what will happen. You could waste your life in the end, lose someone you love, or even lose your own life. In those moments of complete recklessness and leaps of faith though, I would argue that those are the moments where you are truly living. It doesn’t have to be a drastic change, you don’t have to fight a lion but focus on what you are afraid of and challenge it. Overcome obstacles or chase your crazy dreams.

Indecision. What to do with it?

15-Jan-2014

When we are living busy lives, it’s nice to be able to avoid too much indecision, particularly with small everyday choices. I can understand why there may be indecision surrounding a big life-changing event (ie. Moving overseas, or deciding to study again) but those little inbetween decisions really shouldn’t require too much deliberation, it slows us down, removes us from our flow and enhances any insecurity or uncertainty we may be harboring. The funny thing is you normally know the right decision, it’s the first one you think of or when we are tossing up our options perhaps its because they are both good options… in which case just choose one and make it the right one. I’d never considered this before – but it makes sense to me. Things don’t always have to be right or wrong, only our thoughts make them so. “There is never a perfect decision. The best option transpires only because a decision of some sort was made that served as a stable base from which to build and create an end result. We don’t have to be 100 percent certain.”--Sarah Wilson Madame Nourish (aka Jess) loves green juices, fresh coconuts, quinoa cookies, sun salutes and the ocean.

Life has definitely thrown me some interesting curveballs in the last year or so. I married my best friend on June 23rd, 2012 on our 12 year anniversary. I have been with him since I was 13. I watched 4 of my friends get married last summer, including my mom, and my baby nephew was born. With all these amazing things happening around us, it was hard to imagine the hurdles that came next.
