Launch & Adjust

Launch & Adjust

If you’ve followed along here for sometime, have attended a Ditch the Clique event, or follow me on Instagram, you likely know my LOVE for podcasts. I mean, heck…I even have my own! (Oh you know…just a shameless plug for The REAL Women of 20(20) Podcast, no big deal.)

Recently while listening to one of my favorite podcasts, The Skinny Confidential Him & Her, the phrase “launch & adjust” is on repeat. But not only there, the phrase seems to haunt me in conversations and other media content I consume, too!

Let’s NOT return to “Normal”

Let’s NOT return to “Normal”

I can hardly believe it! New York City has officially entered phase 3 of reopening! Social distancing rules are a bit less strict and salons, shops, and even outdoor dining are welcoming guests again! Slowly but surely, life is seemingly returning to “normal”…

But “normal” is not okay…

Don’t get me wrong, I am THRILLED for the businesses in my community to reopen, and to once again experience the simple joy of hugging my friends and family.  But there is so much more to the “normal” life we were living PRE quarantine that we simply can not return to.
