Friday Five! Roses and Buds.

I’m finally linking up for a real “Favourites Friday,” post! I think it is so important for me – and everyone – to take time and remember the things that made – or are currently making – me smile, or something I accomplished and am looking forward to. Even in the hard times, I need to remember there is always something to celebrate. So here we go! What was happening this week, “five style&#8221…

WIAW: “Acting your age”

It’s been a little heavy around here lately. I apologize. But… I also don’t apologize because this place is for honesty and showing up in whatever mess you find yourself in. It’s just been one of those patches. But ALAS, enough of that!! Time to lighten things up! And what a better way than by simply celebrating .. FOOOOOD. Thanks, as always, to Jenn for the link up! These are my eats from Monday…

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…

Thinking Out Loud: In the Brain

Thanks to Amanda for letting me spew out some thoughts that are crowding my brain this week.  I already feel lighter! 1. Smiles: Crunchy peanut butter is so much better than smooth. Like, wow. I bought some last week after years of just having the smooth stuff. I think I knew I liked the crunchy better but I was probably scared of the added pieces of nut… Ugh (#foodfearSMASH).  I never see any other butters offered crunch though&#8230…

WIAW: Same same, but different.

Hello all foodie partyers! Sadly, I missed the coinciding “first day of fall” link up last week. But you better believe I was celebrating. The beta-carotene over dosing  intake has definitely been in full swing. Is my skin turning orange yet? For this week, I thought I’d go extra special and bring in TWO days of eats. My last two school days, to be precise. I had to laugh a little at myself when going…

Weekend Smiles

It’s Monday! I’m leaving any heaviness behind and focusing on what’s good. Go see Katie and Erin and see what marvelous things were happening this weekend! What had me smiling this weekend!? BAKING PARTY!! Sunday afternoon consisted of making a complete and utter mess of my kitchen, overflowing my sink with dishes, and loving every moment of it. Complete with 90s dance party. Of course. On the menu this weekend… Chelsea’s…

Update. Goals, Strategies and Moving Forward.

In alluding to my last post… I am in reset mode. Even before this last weeks’ event, I could feel myself slipping into cautious territory.   I wasn’t giving into symptoms so much that they were once again taking control, but the thoughts were beginning to gain strength. When school began, my routine completely shifted and control of my days was taken away… something I have greatly struggled with in the past. I found myself sitting &#8211…

Reset.

Hi all, I haven’t written in a while. Well, I’ve tried. I’ve written or started a number of posts actually, but each one ended up in the trash or put on hold. I’ve been all over the place. My thoughts, my feelings… I haven’t been able to grasp what I am feeling or thinking or what I want to do at any given time. Each time I wrote I…

Thinking out loud: Those little things.

Speaking of “thinking out loud,” have you read Michael Singhers’ book, “Untethered Soul?” I just started it for the second time. I actually think this is the first and only time I’ve ever voluntarily read a book twice. I read it last fall around this time, and just kind of picked it up again on impulse a couple of weeks ago. The week before starting school/ending summer, I was beginning to feel…
