So I have been having very strange nightmares over the last couple of weeks (basically since around the time my flu started). They are strange because they are about an ex-boyfriend with whom I still speak but do not REALLY still love, To clarify that, I love the OLD boyfriend, the one that I knew … Continue reading Nightmares Part … X?
Today I have dealt with "bipolar" emotions - although I had my sort of "normal" daily things to do, the total of these things wasn't great, and I felt, as I have been feeling more and more over the last few months, that I have been slipping into something like a very deep depression. HOWEVER, … Continue reading A Sense of Purpose
If you are one of the lucky "healthy, normal" people out there reading this, I have a favor to ask of you. I guess this would work only if you are over the age of 30 as well, so my apologies to any younger readers - I am quite sure I have plenty of questions … Continue reading A Thought “Experiment” for the “Healthy”
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!
I wanted to "ring in" the NEW YEAR with a challenge for myself and anyone who is reading this. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have recently (now "fairly recently!") moved and I am still putting things away and simultaneously finding things I forgot I even had. One of these things is this … Continue reading HAPPY NEW YEAR!
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
I have so much to write and I have such a tendency to ramble on and go off on tangents so I am really going to make a concerted effort to discuss ONE topic (perhaps two if they "go together," as the topics "money" and "panic attacks" often do!) at a time here. There is … Continue reading Money Money Money … and Panic … ATTACKS!
I have been watching quite a few YouTube videos recently (perhaps I will be making a comeback myself ...) and I have seen quite a few advertisements for the various "Masterclasses" being offered. The one that caught my attention today was a "writing" "Masterclass" from / with Joyce Carol Oates in which she says - … Continue reading Quote of TODAY!
I have recently started thinking about the ideas behind certain "ideas" or concepts we have; I have been thinking about them culturally (that is, how the ideas of things seem to exist across cultures and through extremely different languages and although there might be slightly different connotations to these basic ideas, the inherent "concepts" are … Continue reading The Idea of Certain Ideas
... laughing at someone's hypothetical "expense?" We all do it ... well, maybe not ALL (there are some very saintly people out there ... but I bet they too once DID it!) ... but as a fairly reasonable generalization, we all use comedy as a means of dealing with situations and realizations that might be … Continue reading What’s the Harm in …
