Practice Makes Prefect…I mean, Perfect. Whatever. Fuck it.



I’m Dayna. I’m a mom, a runner, a teacher, a writer, and I wanted a place to practice my writing, so here I am. This is a work in progress. I am a work in progress. The things I post here are mostly just my thoughts and ideas about life and love, being single, being a mom, being content, and also longing for more.

I was afraid to share my writing because I was afraid to put something “out there” that wasn’t perfect. And if you are here looking for perfectly written prose, you are in the wrong place, my friend. I have made a promise to myself that I will just write. And that I will stop trying to make it perfect. And I will stop worrying about whether or not everyone “gets it”, but that I’m just going to say what I think here. And if you like it, and it resonates? Awesome. And if not, that’s ok too. Just don’t be a dick.

One thing I’ve learned as an imperfect human is that when I reach out to other imperfect humans, I usually find that we are all just trying to figure this shit out. And I am often grateful to others for sharing their experiences, their words, their fears, their hopes, their ideas…because I find hope and connection and sometimes, a lifeline in what someone else has shared. I hope that in these pages you will find something that you relate to or that makes you feel connected. I hope it just makes you think, and maybe encourages you to embrace your own duality. I’d love to hear if you find something you like here.

Here’s to being imperfect. Yeah!

  1. Appreciating the persistence you put into your site and detailed information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material. Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    1. Thank you for the kind words! I haven’t added much lately as I’ve had some life transition going on, but I appreciate you taking the time to give me a little shout out. Curious how you found the site? I haven’t added the RSS feature yet – still figuring out how to do that. 🙂

  2. Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossip and web stuff and this is really irritating. A good blog with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thank you for making this web-site, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters by email?
