These days lives are hella chaotic, connected and let’s be honest – a little bit crazy. It’s easy to feel lost in your to-do list and forget to take a beat think about your goals or notice the little things that make your day a bit brighter or more meaningful (I mean, none of that is scheduled). So I wanted to create a little corner of the internet where we can come together to learn from each other and celebrate the moments, ideas and actions that allow us to get our #hustleforhappiness on, whether it’s soaking in the sights and sounds of a new country (#travelhustle), or you know rocking a five minute face mask during naps (#gratitudehustle), or finally figuring out what the heck a nose frida is (#motherhustle), all with a healthy dose of #realtalk.
From sharing a profile of someone with a really cool job (you guys, my friends are really interesting people), to my struggles with perfectionism, talking about all the Sh*t I wish I knew, or following along with a “what we’re reading” in the #hustlehive book club each month, these are the things, people and moments that inspire me, challenge me and allow me to get my #hustleforhappiness on – and I hope they will do the same for you! This space is always growing and breathing to reflect the pieces of life as a whole. In a time when our attentions and connections are more instant and fragmented than ever, I want us to come back together to embrace the big moments and celebrate the little things. I want this to feel like a place where you can come to learn, reflect and just feel like you’re sitting around the kitchen table chatting about all of the crazy adventures we’re on while embracing our #hustleforhappiness.
So put on your sweatpants, pour yourself a drink (Chardonnay? Kombucha? Ginger ale? No judgements here!) and let’s talk.
Hi! I’m Belinda, but you can call me Bee.
I am a storyteller and enthusiastic sharer of information (seriously, my most common phrase is “did you hear/see/read this?” followed by an excited retelling of said thing). This has led me to a career in communications where I’ve done everything from speech writing, communications planning and social media to issues management, media relations and events management.
A few quick things about me:
- I love to laugh – full bellied, thigh slapping, face all screwed up laughter. Nobody can quite make me laugh like my husband (awww)
- I have run
threefour half marathons, completing three – you can read more about my running journey here!
- I cannot walk past a dog without stopping and trying to make it my friend
- I am hard of hearing (so if you holler at me and I don’t turn around, don’t take it personally, I didn’t hear you!)
- I kind of adore CrossFit
- I am currently navigating the new world of motherhood after welcoming a little babe in January 2019!
