Don’t walk out on me

It’s already first week of June and I haven’t written in a while. I think the reason is that I’ve been super focused on new relationships in my life, and new friendships and have neglected this blog. Not much has changed since my big post in May for goals and so, I’m skipping out on…

Forgiveness and healing from childhood trauma (trigger warning)

The word forgiveness is defined as the process of forgiving, or being forgiven. But what does it mean exactly? What does that process look like? And more importantly, what’s the point of it? Forgiveness is accepting your decisions or your actions. Recognizing the trauma that hurt you or caused emotional damage. Learning to let go…

Early morning rain thoughts

I actually wrote this on Sunday and forgot to post it. It’s the end of the month already and as hard as it has been this year, a lot has happened in the past month. So much so that it’s been a bit over whelming. First of all, I met with my new geneticist and…

Mindfulness vs. Mindlessness

This is a repost from 2020 – rewritten and updated This morning I decided to do a search for trending health topics to write about this week and came across this headline: Mindfulness vs. Mindlessness.

A simple request: why I use aliases online

This morning I was woken up rudely by the sound of my heater acting up. I thought for a split second that it had just exploded. I wasn’t ready to get out of bed, had a bad night, so I decided to check my social media accounts. Made the mistake of going onto Twitter. That’s…

2022 fitness and selfcare goals (updated)

It’s the first Monday of the new year and I had big plans to get up early and clean today but a migraine would foil those plans. I just woke up a little while ago and finished my breakfast and popped some pills. The migraine is finally subsiding and I have lots I need to…

Anxiety is the worst

Well, here we are into the new year and I have a lot on my mind. Yesterday was a bit of a mixed bag. I went to visit my dad for the first time after being sick for a week and he cried the entire time. We have to wear masks, gowns and gloves to…

Thursday morning coffee thoughts

Good morning world. It’s 8:00 am as I sit down with my first cup of coffee for the day. The sun is shining – brightly – the sky is clear and it is shaping up to be a beautiful day. I have a piece of pumpkin loaf and oatmeal for my breakfast, a hot cup…

Troubled in troubling times

It’s Thursday at midnight and I’m still wide awake. It’s been a long kind of day and maybe for the first time in a long while, lonely. The isolation of well, isolation life has me contemplating all my major life decisions. Like being single. Can you believe, that this week marks the 3rd anniversary of…

This chapter I call, “new beginnings”

All right, all right, all right. Things are moving along quite nicely and I am feeling more at “home” now that my computer is set up and my Wifi is finally working. Yes, you guessed it. Shaw Cable screwed up yet again. The tech tried blaming it on me or the jack but all it…
