Sorry I’ve been away for some time. You know how it goes. The busyness of life. I don’t know about you, but for years I have been a stress freak. Most of the time I knew this. I was aware. But I did little to change it. I have been terrible at managing and acknowledging… Continue reading How About Now?
I’ve kept a journal off and on for years. More recently it was off. Now it’s back on. I try to write in it every day. Do I write my most secret, innermost thoughts? Not always. But I do skim the surface pretty good.
My journal is a form of therapy. I write about what is happening in my life – the good, the bad, and the ugly. I write about my questions, thoughts, and fears. It’s therapeutic. And it helps.
At this time in my life it seems to be important to write things down. For some reason, I have a lot of questions right now. I’m trying to figure some things out. I’ve trying to put some things in their place. Journaling is free. It’s the least expensive therapy out there!
Do you keep a journal? I’d like to hear about it.
I’ll talk to you soon.
Chore – Noun. A routine task, especially a household one. I don’t know how it works you in your house, but, when I get home from work, I have to do my chores. What do these chores consist of, you might ask. Aren’t you almost 50 years old? Is someone giving you an allowance to… Continue reading Ahem…And Now, A Few Words About Chores
I’m going to be traveling in a few weeks to see my daughter and her family. As usual, I’m having the pre-travel freak-out. I don’t like being away from home. Heck, I don’t like traveling…period! Oh, I love the idea of going to exotic places or traveling overseas. I just don’t like the actual act of getting on a perfectly good plane and flying through the air. Or riding in the car for 8 hours to get to our destination. (Remind me again why would anyone do that)? I do love the idea of seeing family and friends, no matter where they live. But like I said, it’s the act of getting there that is difficult for me.
I’m not sure where this comes from, but it’s the same process each time I get ready to travel. It’s hard on me to be away. This time hubby is coming along, so I won’t have to do all the driving. He will help. I guess I’ll start meditating…it always helps!
Do you ever have a pre-travel freak-out? I’d like to hear from you!
Thank you, Bing, for the cute little image!
Last year I decided that I needed to cross something off my bucket list. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. So I went to the music store, bought a guitar, and took lessons for six weeks. Fast forward to the end of those six weeks, and I felt like I had wasted… Continue reading Yes, I Play The Ukulele
I owe a lot. I have a huge debt. A sleep debt. In fact, lets not even call it a debt. Let’s call it negative net worth. I haven’t slept in years. Not well, anyway. You might be wondering, why? Could it be hormones? Stress? Too much looking at the gadgetry before bedtime? Too much… Continue reading I Can’t Sleep
