The Off Season

I’m a little bit on the struggle bus today trying to get things done. I have a list of home projects and another list of writing projects and sometimes when I have so many, I can’t seem to get any of them done! But my daughter shared this little insight from one of her professors that was just what I needed to hear today.

 “We need to think of this time as our off-season from our day-to-day lives. When athletes are in their off seasons, what do they do? They get better. I want you guys [us] to take this off-season to keep taking small steps in the right direction. You’re doing your best, and as long as you’re trying to be better and do better, that’s all God asks of us. Use this time away and use it well.”  

Let’s just keep on keeping on, friends, and please know that I’m thinking of all of you! 


My name is Ann Marie Scheidler and I'm thrilled you've decided to check out my blog. I'm a pearl-loving yogi with a thing for travel, a weakness for beautiful bags, and a passion for storytelling. In this space, I'll be sharing stories about my family, go-to recipes, my wellness journey, fashion and beauty favorites, and my love for Chicago’s North Shore. I find new inspiration wherever I go. Thanks so much for coming along for the ride!
