Friday Favorites: Recent Words, Quotes and Synchronicity

It has struck me that I am quite the, “word hoarder” if you will. I love articles… I love words… I love things that speak to me (unless you stand on two legs and try to talk to me when I’m hangry). I also love synchronicity – when I see something written that aligns with where I am at emotionally or is connected to something I am currently reading about. This happens quite a…

Depression and HA Recovery: Self Care

My Year in Review was positive It was full of a sense of new peace and happiness that I felt, specifically in the ending months of the year. I was scared to write that post and was very hesitant to even hint at the thought that…I’m happy…because inside, I felt like I knew there would soon be a down swing. I don’t believe this is a pessimistic voice talking, but rather a realistic…

Feelings and Food: My Struggles With Intuitive Eating

Goodmorning friends,  I’m currently sitting at a McDonalds having an early morning breakfast and (decaf) coffee. I have an appointment with a dietician across the street, so I’m just having some sit down time before going in.  This dietician. I saw her for the first time about a month ago.  It wasn’t really something out of my choosing, but rather a request from the nurse I’ve been seeing.&nbsp…

Remembering What is Important and a Merry Christmas Eve

Hello dear friends It is afternoon here on Christmas Eve Day. My house is filled with a beautiful silence. I know it won’t last much longer,  as I anticipate the arrival of my two brothers and their partners (and their dog). I’m sitting here by my window ledge looking out at the snow, drinking a mug of hot coffee and snacking on a collection of chocolate edibles. I just finished up a…

Week In Review: Fighting the Feelings and the Count Down Begins

Finding out today was Sunday was definitely a… surprise. You know something’s off when you nearly forget to write your favorite link up post. As cliche as it is, I’m still going to say it: “Where did this week go?” I wish I felt this way because my week was all sorts of productive and fun, but really, I just have no idea where this week went… or what I did…

Week In Review: Pushing Through Lethargy

Last week wasn’t that fun guys.  I’m just feeling so. bloody. tired. Physically, like crud. My body doesn’t want to move. All week I felt heavy and could barely keep my eyes open – even at work standing up. And with that, my mood has been pretty low. Motivation and care is nearly zilch. I don’t know if it was more the weather (rainy and cloudy all week), &nbsp…

Ready or Not: My Summer Plans. Part 1.

I feel like I’ve been formulating this post in my head for the past two months. Each week its focus and mood shifts. If I were to have written this a couple of months ago when the ideas were first stirring, I think you would have felt a greater sense of confidence and abandon.  I probably would have titled it, “Why I’m Ready.” I really want to try and bring back…

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…

If we were having coffee…

I’d want you to share what it is that makes your belly light up with butterflies. I’d want you to talk about the thing that makes you smile like a giddy school kid.  I’d want you to talk and spew without censoring yourself or worrying about saying the wrong thing. I’d want you to trust that whatever you say does not impact the external light that you give off, for this light…
