You Must Also Know Your Weaknesses!

Hello my lovey doves! I am here just briefly (I am working away on other endeavors at the moment and there was another post I thought of while I was driving earlier and I seem to have forgotten it ... with any luck it will pop back into this steroidsy screwy brain of mine!) to … Continue reading You Must Also Know Your Weaknesses!

Terrace House Wisdom

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.

When I say this I mean something like if you were to find a $5 bill lying in the middle of "Main Street" and you took that … Continue reading Mindfulness Monday

Motivation Monday – Is “Failure” an Option?

Many of the posts I have started to write here - saved now as "drafts" - involve the results of action vs. "inaction." This basic "is" or "is not" can be formulated into infinite numbers of "hypotheses" despite the fact that they all basically come down to the aforementioned basic "argument." Today, for "Motivation Monday," … Continue reading Motivation Monday – Is “Failure” an Option?

Monday Motivation – Random Acts of Kindness

So today started off as a rocky last night - I was having terrible panic attacks and slept terribly due to the amount of pain I was in along with having steroid withdrawal which resulted in repeated nightmares that woke me from my rare moments of sound sleep. I finally dragged my butt out of … Continue reading Monday Motivation – Random Acts of Kindness
