What I Learned While Packing: Embrace The Mess

As you saw from Monday’s epic post, last week was a big one. I packed up and moved out of my apartment.  There was a lot of sweat, and a lot of mess.  Throughout the week – and which came as a pleasant surprise –  I came to embrace this mess more and more each day. I have no idea where you stand on the “clean obsession” scale, so you may not…

The World of a Super-Feeler: Parenting a Child Through Difficult Emotions

I was first introduced to the term, “Super-Feeler,” when I began seeing a new psychologist a couple of years ago. I knew she was specialized in something called, “Emotion Focused Therapy,” (EFT) but to be honest I had zero idea what that even meant. Needless to say, I was quite shocked (and intrigued) when a couple sessions in she used me and the term, “super-feeler” in the same sentence. &#8220…

A Few Simple Words

The week before last, I had my wallet stolen (or lost? …who can ever be sure). This was the second time this happened in three months. I had just taken out cash, so yeah, in addition to everything else, I lost 100+ dollars.  I have no idea what happened, and I’m not going to spend any more time trying to rationalize it or retrace my steps. And I’m not going to spend any more…

Trials and Errors of Blogging (and life)

I initially wrote this post a few days ago and then struggled to decided when/if I would post it.  I am feeling more compassionate as I now return to my laptop and have decided to give it another chance. Welcome to my current blogging mind dump.  I’ve been feeling really uncomfortable with my blogging. Its been creeping up over the last month, but really struck me hard last week. I published what, after the…

Check Check… Houston, do you read me?

Hi friends! I’m taking this Sunday morning as an opportunity to say an official “Hi” from my new space …especially to any of you who have been so kind to follow me, either through email or wordpress. When I made my transition last week, I did not realize that my followers (you!) failed to come along with me! Huge boo. I had to, just recently, have my subscribers separately transferred to my…

Womp Womp.

#tragedies Hey guys, As you could guess from my image, last week was a titch of a messy one.  Not in a bad way necessarily (although this was a particularly tragic morning).  I stayed in good spirits throughout… it was just one of those weeks that threw a few “new” things at me. One of those things was the learning of a bit of a blog boo boo. I ran out of “space” on my…

My Little “Routine”

You know those articles that present us with lists of things we should incorporate into our daily lives? “9 Daily Habits That Will Change Your Life.” etc… I stumbled upon one the other day,  and it got me thinking about all the years I spent trying to find my own routine.  All those times I tried to follow lists of health guidelines and suggestions thrown at us in countless web posts, but more often than not, failed…

Christmas 2015

Like so many years before, another Christmas has come and gone. Of course, the season of the holiday continues, but the glitz and glamour of the one special day is now past. It was a traditional Christmas at my home, as it always is. The Christmas Tree was decorated with our random assortment of ornaments, all bursting with childhood memories.  Too many gifts were placed beneath. My goal for homemade and simple giving was achieved and finished off…

Reaching for Control Amidst a Multitude of Passions

Goodmorning! From me, my couch, and my steaming bowl of pumpkin oats…. Crock pot pumpkin-apple steel cut oats I seem to always have a lot going through my mind. My thoughts seem to be constantly racing from one to another…to another…to another. Plans. Ideas. Plans. Ideas.  One hardly has a chance of fully developing before a new one comes and pushes it aside. Lucky for me, this little notion puts me in great…

Life. Mess. Messy life.

Note: before I get into the post, it seems I may have lost some of my previous followers… only one aspect of this past week (which you are about to hear a little about). So if you were one of my lovely followers, please re-follow me! I’d hate to lose you! So. Now….  This week happened. It happened a little something like this. Or maybe more like this… You know how life just loves…
