Self care

As a society, it's my opinion that we don't practice enough self-care.  Especially those of us who are single and hustling every day to make that money, be responsible grown ups, pay the bills, go to jobs and somewhere in there nurture our important relationships.

It's still early on this lazy Saturday morning.  I've walked the dog, did the yoga and am settled in with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some journaling.  Then I realized something. I'm not angry anymore. Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness

I’m a Junkie

An Experience Junkie, that is. As the photo of me with the fish will attest, I did in fact survive the excursion to the fishing lodge with The Chef.  He has proven himself to not be a serial killer, I found no evidence of blood or body fragments in the lodge and he was a… Continue reading I’m a Junkie

Rabbit Holes

It's been a few weeks since I've sat down to write.  I just haven't been inspired.  In creative projects like this there are going to be ebbs and flows in the process. My energies have been elsewhere.  I've been busier than I've been in a long time at work, I've been going on a lot… Continue reading Rabbit Holes
