HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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!

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. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this … Continue reading Terrace House Wisdom

Wednesday Wisdom – “Righting Your Heart”

I have been sort of watching (in my "watching way" of leaving shows on while I am doing other things) this Netflix Anime called ピアノの森. It's a little goofy (the attempts at getting the "animation" of piano playing is VERY computerized, if that is a "proper" description), but there was just an interesting line that … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom – “Righting Your Heart”

The Wisdom of … “Gossip Girl?!?!?”

Who ever would have thought I would be quoting "Gossip Girl?!" But here I am and here it is - something to think about in many contexts - "It's not the secrets that cause the problems; it's the assumptions that people make about them." This doesn't apply just to "secrets;" it applies to relationships we … Continue reading The Wisdom of … “Gossip Girl?!?!?”

Wednesday Wisdom Part 2!

I just wanted to share the "wisdom" given to me by the landlady at my first "bad" apartment in this most recent run of "bad apartments." The landlady was amazing and I still think whatever she was paid could not have been enough to manage the apartment complex she did manage. At any rate, when … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom Part 2!

Thursday Thought

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

Wednesday Wisdom – “Deserving”

Don't ever think you are "too good" for people you don't know or that you are "too good" for certain things to happen to you. You never know what others are going through and you never know what tomorrow will bring. You can anticipate every scenario imaginable, but I guarantee that if you even look … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom – “Deserving”

Wednesday Wisdom! “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead!”

This one WILL be short and sweet! I had planned out a continuation of "Tautology Tuesday" from yesterday but Imma save that one for later in the week! For now, I just want to talk about something I'm sure you've either heard or said yourself:"I'll sleep when I'm dead!"Now, the general insinuations here are: 1. … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom! “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead!”

Wednesday Wisdom – What Causes Unhappiness?

Good morning, world! Today I am going to address an issue with which I've been butting heads frequently - namely, how to deal with "negative emotions" when they arise, RESPONDING to them rather than REACTING and letting them overwhelm me. I am putting "negative emotions" in quotes here because there is a fair amount of … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom – What Causes Unhappiness?

Wednesday Wisdom: TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE?

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?
