Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.
#totalhonestytuesday #truth I accidentally left my phone at home today. I didn't run go get it. An entire workday without it. Not only did I survive, I was more present .. even on my evening commute. Not to worry .. it's going with me tomorrow. But maybe I'll try to quiet some of the beeps .. #balance #realworldzen #unplug

Some days you start out with all the best intentions with your green smoothie and every intention of hitting the gym on the way home. Then you have a rough day at work, your period hits and you find yourself eating three Rice Krispies on your way home, barely stopping to remove the wrapper. #totalhonestytuesday @faganchelsea

#TotalHonestyTuesday: I suffer from anxiety. Some days, it inhibits my ability to focus on my work. When that happens, I try different forms meditation. Focusing on balance helps, but some days, like today, I have trouble clearing my mind. #MeditationTime #BalancedLife #TravelPics #GirlsTravel #Hawaii #Wanderful @faganchelsea

More than one week ago I put in a notice at my job. 99% of my colleagues still don't know. I can't tell them as I'm trying for 4 weeks to negotiate my relocation I'm not sure I'm still interested in. So all I can do now is drink my ginger tea, watch leaves turning into beautiful colors, sell our furniture and see what will happen in the end. #totalhonestytuesday #ginger #tea #work #confession #changesarecoming #staystrong

I must admit, I'm pretty impressed with my makeup job. Which was a three minute update on what I wore to work earlier. And was too lazy to curl all hair, so only did two pieces on either side. My shoes don't match my dress, which is a thing that happens when you hardly ever dress up to go anywhere. It's not Tuesday, but #totalhonestytuesday. Not classy. At all.

I know it's a day late for #totalhonestytuesday but grad school gets in the way and when you finally get a few seconds of floofy mind dump time to scan Facebook you remember other things. Anyways, I don't know how @faganchelsea does this but she happens to put into the universe just what I needed at the perfect time ever since June 2012. I am right there with you Chelsea. I was born in Nairobi, Kenya and my family moved to the U.S. and when it came to communication – I learned it all from my family. Regardless of how busy you thought you were you always had time to stay in touch with the most important people in your life. One of the hardest things during my transition and integration to the U.S. was keeping in touch with the few people I considered best friends. I was 12 when I moved and just started learning to use email and MSN messenger and even MySpace to stay in touch with my childhood friends. I was in the middle of figuring where I fit in and other than my family, I was relying on my friends. The crazy progress of communication across seas made it easier to stay in touch something my parents and their parents appreciated. Once I got a phone and texting my behavior mirrored what I'd seen and lived. So when my friends went to college (in the U.S. and abroad) I went into gear and texted first and responded immediately. All the time. I learned quickly that it's not the way others communicate. I took it personally and after some therapy I learned that it's not something I needed to be ashamed of. I will always text first and respond immediately. I've seen how my grandparents and parents and family over the world ached for that ability to stay in touch and couldn't because of circumstances out of their control. So here I am, of that same tribe of girls who always text first.
