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…

Fear of Failure

In the Artists Way, Julia Cameron poses the question, “What are your procrastinations with moving on from here? What is the payoff to staying stuck? What are your hidden fears?” After some digging, and letting myself be 150% honest with myself, there were three words that summed up everything. Fear. Of. Failure. My whole life, I have felt like a fraud. I have always been “that girl that could do everything.” “Miss perfect.&#8221…

What Am I Learning?

Ancora Imparo: “Still, I am learning” (Michelangelo) This weekend was full of lessons. I learned that relationships require complete vulnerability, and that this vulnerability requires that you uncover all the things that do not make you perfect. The things that prove you, too,  are flawed and make mistakes. I learned that it may fill you with deep sadness to have those truths unveiled. Those truths that you have always known about yourself, but have secretly hoped no one…

Life. And How To Get Yourself Back.

Life. It just loves its roller coaster rides, doesn’t it? It just loves to take you up up up, then throw you a mighty curve ball.  Testing you constantly. Like that damn high school teacher always pulling pop quizzes on you… but only on the lessons where you just so happened to nap off in class. Anyway. This is going to be a wordy, maybe not quite comprehensive post. I just need to write. Right now I…

…is this thing on?

Hi… (Can you smell my apprehension through your screen?) As I sit here in my rain-leaking, garbage infested basement at work, scarfing down my Annie’s Mac&Cheese, I’m staring at my screen thinking, “Would I actually do this?” “Make my own blog?” “Put something out there for anyone to possibly.. maybe.. potentially.. actually… read?!” …..Why am I doing this!? Over the last few years, I…
