Welcome to Ten Twenty Thirty!

I'm Molly, a thirty-something woman who is surviving (and even thriving!) in the face of depression and anxiety, PCOS, and never knowing what's around the bend. I'm a recovering perfectionist and control freak who's finally started to figure out some of the secrets to chilling the fuck out and calming the fuck down...but I often relapse. I live in the Twin Cities with my husband, two cats, lots of books, and a sweet hot tub.

I started this blog the year I turned thirty, in 2010 (hence its name, Twenty Ten Thirty). Writing here has clearly been an on again, off again effort. To rekindle the consistency of posts, I often turn to "The List." You can read about it here.

I also write about a lot of the stuff up in that first paragraph, especially that part about life being one big 'ole question mark. I quit my traditional, well-paying corporate job in 2015, and I've been flying by the seat of my pants ever since -- it's a decision that constantly proves to be equal parts liberating and terrifying. Like everyone else roaming the earth, I'm just trying to find a little peace, purpose, and happiness, however elusive.

I'm not quite certain about what "success" or "happiness" means to me, but I can say that the successes and happiness I've experienced so far I surely owe to years of therapy, wine, yoga, lame jokes, bad puns, my darling husband, a healthy dose of sarcasm, snuggly cats, Pema Chodron, pocket Buddhism, Tiny Buddha, and keeping it real. And other stuff and people too. And not necessarily in that order.
