Last year, I was a mess. I was navigating a new job while my husband worked inhuman hours and mourned the passing of his dad. We had a house that we’d fixed up and was filled with 2 cats (who love each other) and a pittbull-boxer mix named Taco.
I constantly felt like a failure.
Like I wasn’t doing enough, the house was never clean enough, and I was exhausted all the time. My inner narrative was incredibly dark and things were just tough.
I feel like a butterfly just emerging from its chrysalis.
For me, the most important lesson was learning how to think about my thoughts and stop giving them the power of my attention.
My name is Michelle Barrow and I’m passionate about helping others become more aware: Of themselves as well as their relationship with people and the planet.
I believe in the power of living with mindfulness, intention, and magic.
I’m not an expert on anything, but I’m constantly trying to grow and learn. I hope that by sharing what I learn as I go along, you’ll be inspired to take life into your own hands.
We all have the power to change the world. We just have to learn how to tap into it.
My posts are divided into four main categories:
I hope this blog becomes a resource you can turn to again and again to live with more magic, mindfulness, and intention.
