Wasted Money?

But well as it happens, here I am with ample time on my hands and in a I-Gotta-Get-My-Shit-Together mood, I am paying a little more attention. Also, without an ongoing income, I am more conscious of my spending habits.

Left hanging by the handyman

Left hanging just didn’t feel right. A lot of things don’t feel right anymore. For example, words I used nonchalantly before. Just this morning, I was journaling how the down times at work kill me. I literally went back, crossed it out and wrote stress me out instead. Life has changed, I’ve changed. Grief does…

Building Gratitude.01

For some reason, sleep eluded me last night and I only started feeling sleepy just before my alarm went off..sigh. Then there was an accident on the highway which led me being 30 minutes late to work..ugh. But driving up on this little street that turns into the Parking Lot. I looked up and there…

Ketogenic anyone?

Two days ago, I stumbled across the documentary, The Magic Pill on Netflix and found it to be so fascinating. Briefly, the hypothesis behind this documentary is that our bodies are more adept at using fat for fuel than it is at using carbohydrates. According to the documentary, humans actually evolved eating mostly meat, vegetables…

My 10-day staycation started today

Well, yesterday really. But it’s 2:38am and I’m atill awake as I have been the last 3 nights. But not even this recent bout of insomnia will stop me from celebrating. 10 days off from work. Thank you Universe. I so need this time. May I use it wisely. I have so so much to…

Week 16: More of the same

I mean that’s life right? It’s pretty mundane. Same thing, day in day out. We have our daily lists made up of a mix of things like work, parenting, chores, school, study, sleep or lack thereof, pastimes, a major event here and there. The trick is finding meaning in those mundane days. Ok, have I…

Then I meditate

Sometimes life becomes too distracting and disruptive that I neglect to carve out the 10-13 minutes I need for my #DailyCalm guided meditations. And I forget how much I enjoy them, how serene yet alive I feel after these brief sessions, and how bit by bit, that calm feeling is staying with me longer and…

Week 13: In need of R&R.

Don’t want to post much this week. Between too much work and continued bouts with insomnia, I’m in need of R&R. I’ll be back next week.

One word: Ugh!

Is that a word? Probably not. It’s more an expression I guess. Whatever it is, ugh! No, actually a big fat UGH! I hate when sleep is as elusive as it is tonight. I hate that I get anxious when that happens. I hate that the anxiety feeds on itself creating even more anxiety. I…

Week 12: 12-hour Work Days

Wow!, that week just flew by. I didn’t even get a chance to post a single blog not even any of the daily prompts. I’ve been leaving the house about 8am and returning around 8pm. I usually have dinner and head to bed. No exercise, no chores, no writing, no nothing..just work. I hope I’ve…
