March Goals

Hello, everyone! I am excited to be writing this post! The last monthly goals post I wrote was in March of 2016. Woah time flies! I wanted to get back into the swing of writing these little monthly goals posts because while I was looking at last years posts I felt rather nostalgic to see the plans and things I was up to back then. These kinds of posts are not only a great way to hold yourself accountable but also fun to look back upon. So seeing how March 1st is the traditional beginning of the new year I…

Sending Gratitude

Hello lovelies, today I want to share some big news. Brace yourselves… Today is a huge day for my blog ScaleitSimple. A wonderful milestone has been reached thanks to your love and support. ScaleitSimple now has over 2000 WordPress followers! Can you believe it? I am actually still a little shocked.  Less than two years ago when I started this blog I was in kind of a funk and at the beginning of a journey of self-discovery. A journey I have since found out does not really end. A journey that led me towards new passions and helped…

28 Lessons Learned by my 28th Year

So today is my birthday! Yay! Happy Birthday to me. I feel very grateful to have turned another year older and maybe even a little wiser. I am also thankful for all the wonderful and kind people I have in my life that took the time to send me love and light on the day of my birth, your all amazing! When I woke up this morning as is typical on my birthday it was a bitter cold -12, windchill -22. Yup, welcome to Canada! As my car strained to start and I waited for the ice on the inside…

Dear 2016,

Dear 2016, I stood out on the edge of 2015 with a steady gaze looking towards you, contemplating the mysteries ahead of me. Seeing you through the trees I knew the only way was forward through the shadows.  I was ready for you, prepared and determined to explore your secrets. There was a plan for you 2016. I had a plan for me, I guess you had a plan of your own. Straight through I approached you, the clock striking midnight in turn. Once I reached you-you turned the path beneath me. This was a strange forest, I quickly…

Lessons in Following my Dreams & NaNoWriMo Win

I’m back! Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? Regardless, I missed you my blogging pals and I am happy to be back in action just in time for this wonderful Christmas season. Yay! As you may know,  from my previous post, I have been enveloped in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) during the month of November. A task that took me begrudgingly away from my blog and all of you. However, this was the kind of break that I really benefited from, I stretched my creative limitations and expanded the barriers of what…

Hello November & NaNoWriMo

Hello, November! November is such a strange month don’t you think? Sandwiched between the beautiful and spooky month of October and the festive and busy month of December. Not only is this month the middle child of two pretty awesome siblings it is also a little bit of a reject when it comes to the weather. Snow, rain, fog, sun, wind. Anything and everything here in St. John’s. Alright alright, enough shitting on November. There are some really great things to look forward to this month also. One of them being NaNoWriMo. You may be wondering…

Ramblings on Risk

Good day, beloved readers. I am looking to share some rambling thoughts with you today. I am looking for some advice and wisdom from you and myself… Deep breath, and here we go. The entire meaning of the above quote is all that has been on my mind lately. An idea of risk, decisions, and potential opportunities lost. It seems I am in a purgatory of sorts. A place in between the action, change and risk and a place of comfort, stability, and normalcy. The last thoughts before you step onto that new path that branches from your current…
