Well, this just happened 😍

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all doing well and enjoying your Spring.🌹🌷🌺

As some who follow me on social media may know, the last couple of weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster. However, yesterday afternoon, I received my welcome letter for the holistic-based Nutrition program I had applied to for my path to becoming a wellness coach.

I've thought about and researched this for a while now, and it's manifesting nicely. Though I have taken other smaller accredited nutrition courses, I wanted one that was more in-depth and more holistic, and this completely fit what I was looking for. 

Though I had no clue I'd end up taking a course from a bigger University, I am a little nervous but very excited, as it will fuel my love of learning as well as provide me with credits for the bigger goal.

Between all of the signs I have been getting this year, like numbers and heart shapes, plus remembering my love of learning and wellness, as well as the fact that I missed medicine all these years—it's been 20 years, in fact—also gave me a little shot of courage I needed to apply.

Have you taken a leap, made a career change, or gone back to school after a long hiatus?

For me, it's a step on my journey to getting "me" back and thriving.

Thank you for stopping by, and take care,


New Name, but still on a journey to thrive

Hi Everyone!

If it's your first time here, I'm Erika, also known as "Missy," and I'm excited to be back to blogging, and doing product reviews.  Some of you may have noticed the new name, after much thought, it just fits, really fits.

Life took me on some unexpected detours, but during that time, I took an unplanned, but needed breather, I worked on recharging my batteries, and gained some fresh perspective, some moments have been eye-opening, so to speak.

Recharged, and renewed,  I'm ready to pour into Learning to Thrive, Not Just Survive.  This re-launch is also a journey of healing, and growth, because honestly, I've been in survival mode since I was 4 years old, and I am more than ready to thrive.

Besides the breather, and recharge, I have also been working on getting my Holistic Nutrition Cert, Sleep, Stress Management, 200 RYT, and finally formally learning Meditation, which has been enlighting since I've thought for years I was doing it all wrong.

Along with this journey, I'll be sharing, and talking about what is or hasn't worked for me, the physical challenges I am currently working around, as well as brands I love, recipes, as well as product reviews.

I will only review a product or service that I use or have tried, and I try to be fair in my reviews.  As many of you know coffee is my blood type, I love trying, and learning about cruelty-free brands, I'm still a rescue pack mom, and probably always will be.

I'll still share yummy recipes to include my love for seasonal, and local produce, my love of PNW, small business, and more.

Thank you for stopping by today, and for following along,  you can also find me on my other blog, and social media.
