Welcome to try small things! I’m Julie. This is my lifestyle blog for foodies, readers and decor enthusiasts who love to discover and try small things. I live with my family (including my 8-year-old son, my 10-year-old daughter, and our beloved kitty) in Ottawa, Ontario.
It’s taken me years to talk about it outside a very small group of family and friends, but I struggle with depression and anxiety (there! I said it!), particularly social anxiety, which makes it tough to try small things. It’s a good day when I’ve had a great workout (I love The Dailey Method barre and cycle) tried a new recipe, read a few pages of a great book or changed something in our home to give it a fresh feel. (Not that the house ever looks this clean.) I’m a homebody and an introvert and I’m tryyyyyying to be okay with that, but honestly I see some of the adventures people get up to and feel badly that I’m not doing more. But I’m trying. (Small things.) And it makes me feel so good to hear that you want to try some of the same things too.
