Keeping promises to myself
Tuesday, April 27, 2021      11 comments

I'm here to stay true to myself. I promised myself that I would "blog it out" many a time. Truthfully, I have not done that...I have watched my SparkCoach assessment numbers slip before my eyes and have done nothing to correct it. Half-a$$ed a... Read more
Rolling with the punches
Thursday, March 25, 2021      6 comments

One thing that can be said for sure is that rolling with the punches is starting to become a way of life for me. Letting things "be" - helping out where I can - saying "no" - big steps for me going on. At least for today. LOL Expressing m... Read more
Do the right thing
Monday, March 15, 2021      11 comments

It's been a year of Covid-19 sucking the life out of everything. Literally and figuratively. It has not been an easy year. Some have struggled more than others. Some have paid the ultimate price and people have been left behind. There is... Read more
Deleted blog day!
Thursday, March 04, 2021      10 comments

I had one written and then deleted it. It was good to get the words out on the "page." It wasn't good and it wasn't bad. It just was. Thoughts. Sometimes that is all the therapy one needs...like an email you delete and don't se... Read more
Belly breathing
Sunday, February 28, 2021      6 comments

Ever watch a baby sleeping? The peace on their face, the rise and fall of their belly. In guided meditation, you’ll sometimes hear the words “soft face, soft belly” or something similar to that. The reminder to breathe from the abdomen is a... Read more
50 is "Nifty!"

The hubby turned the big 5-0 yesterday....and in true pandemic fashion, we had an uber-small gathering of his parents (the people most connected with hubby's existence on earth) and our new small family of 4 (oldest kiddo is now in Delaware at u... Read more
The hiatus... retrenching...
Wednesday, February 10, 2021      8 comments

I guess it was 2 weeks ago...a few major things at work came about, the most important being a vaccination opportunity for airport workers. This high level county effort was filtered down through various platforms and would up in my zone with a... Read more
Mindfulness of "the rut"
Thursday, January 28, 2021      7 comments

Ever scroll through inspirational quotes on social media and they just hit the nail on the head? It happens to me all the time. This past year has been one of a lot of introspection and building up that self-care muscle...and today is no diffe... Read more
"Do more of what makes you happy"
Tuesday, January 26, 2021      5 comments

It's a slogan on a new t-shirt I bought myself. It's also on a little trinket dish I gave my son for Christmas. It's a motto I can get behind because let's face it...it's easy to forget ourselves, let alone happiness when under stress or when ... Read more
So...2021
Friday, January 15, 2021      8 comments

So...2021...I’ve deleted several blogs since your start... This Friday morning, I woke up from weird dreams and had to get up and out of bed. On average I wake up around 4:30am nowadays. I wish it were later, truly. I look at the bright sid... Read more

As you can see, the image above is what I created for our 2020 Christmas card! I saw the template and was inspired, because let's face it, this... Read more
The magic of the delete button
Tuesday, December 08, 2020      12 comments

Yesterday I did it. The hotmail account that has been giving my iphone a hard time has been officially deleted off of it. It was the second time I had to delete and reinstall. Well, as they say, the Second time is a charm....Once bitten, Twice ... Read more

The last month of the year is here! and with it my 117th day of consecutive meditation! I've blogged about the benefits of meditation...and this can be chalked up to another one, I guess. I just want to make a note about this Thanksgiving.... Read more
A new day & able to breathe
Wednesday, November 18, 2020      7 comments

After I posted yesterday's blog, I felt much better as the day went on. The supportive notes from my Sparkfriends were extremely helpful. The extra sessions of meditation were helpful. The "letting go" of things was helpful. On days like... Read more
