I have been "watching" (my version of "watching" is more like half-listening to while doing other things) the Netflix / Japanese "reality show" "Terrace House" and I just came across some wisdom that I suppose I had overlooked while halfheartedly "watching" / listening to the show. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this … Continue reading Terrace House Wisdom
FREEDOM is the ability to RESPOND to any situation by looking at it antithetically.. If your natural REACTION to a situation is one way, try stepping back and thinking about it in exactly the opposite way. For example, my last post about "helping others help themselves" - that is, knowing first that the person who … Continue reading Friday Freedom
I would like just to "share" with you a "coping" strategy I have only recently learned to utilize. I have a formal diagnosis of panic disorder - something which is not at all helped by the illnesses I have or the drugs used to treat them! At any rate, when I am faced with a … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom
"“When people show you who they are, believe them the first time. "~Maya AngelouThis is one of those quotes that's hitting very close to home lately. I started writing a post about the importance of going with your "gut" instinct - a topic which ties into this quote very closely. There are so many implications … Continue reading Tuesday Tip
I will try to return to my more "succinct" posting style with this one - please bear with my "bombastic loquaciousness" when it pops up!

Here is yet ANOTHER TRULY succinct post! I'm on a roll! *CHEERS!*I think those of us who are "givers" in life - those of us who tend to "give give give" in relationships of any kind - are either the children of abusive parents or narcissistic parents or had some other experience in our early … Continue reading Thursday Thought
Sticking with the alliteration ...Today I realized something very important. I have been having similar dreams as I was having when I discussed them in my post about nightmares and why I thought the people I didn't really care about were the ones "starring" in most of my bad dreams. I have to say, I … Continue reading My SOUL Sunday – Nightmares Revisited
Lately I have been thinking a lot about my "Chinese astrological" horoscope for this year; I won't "indulge" you with which "sign" I fall under, but my memory keeps reminding me that this year I am supposed to find "career success" in one form or another - that is, as long as I keep "my … Continue reading Tuesday “Tip”
Today I officially moved out of my apartment; I handed in my keys to the "landlord" and *poof!* done! The apartment itself was nice and I met some of the best people and best friends I have had in a long time; I also have quite a few memories in that place (that I can … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom: TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE?
So I am in a bit of a rush this morning; I have a LOT of work to do after feeling so poorly yesterday, but I did want to kick off this idea of "Tautology Tuesday." I am not sure if this is something someone somewhere has already "thought of," but it's an interesting idea … Continue reading Tautology Tuesday – Ghosting?
