Evolution, Authenticity, Random Thoughts

It’s funny how I’m going through this big life change, this evolution of thought, this reprioritization…all while the world keeps turning. I write about all that here for many reasons: writing practice, journaling, tracking my progress, accountability, to hopefully relate to others, to motivate people, to raise awareness for this and that, to entertain… ThereContinue reading “Evolution, Authenticity, Random Thoughts”

Open heart. Open mind.

You know what people do? They opinion shop. They feel-good shop. They justify shop. They comeraderie shop. Not only does misery love company, but so does contentment. People are out shopping for connectedness. They want to feel good about themselves and their choices. They want to be agreed with and supported by other folks goingContinue reading “Open heart. Open mind.”

Weight Loss & Accountability…just no.

So I’ve been thinking about telling y’all that I’m going to start trying to lose weight. Telling you would mean accountability, though, and accountability means…um… having to be accountable…for actually doing it. *sigh* Why is weight loss hard? It’s not hard to eat birthday cake. Why is weight loss accountability so hard? It’s not hardContinue reading “Weight Loss & Accountability…just no.”

20 Ways To Love Yourself

1) Don’t respond to that email, text, or phone call. 2) Let that housework wait; it will still be there later. 3) Take a shower, smell good, and show up with your chin up. 4) Say “no” with a smile, because you really are too busy to take on another thing. 5) Don’t put upContinue reading “20 Ways To Love Yourself”

Let go of the crap.

Funny, isn’t? Funny to think about your old self, or maybe what the rest of the world is still doing, when you decide to be completely done with… Stupid crap. Fake crap. Meaningless crap. Other people’s crap. Political crap. Crap that ain’t my business. Dramatic crap. Pretentious crap. It’s the biggest challenge of all –Continue reading “Let go of the crap.”

I want you to be happy. Really.

Y’all notice the “support other women” movement happening over the last few years? It’s louder than ever. You can barely scroll any social media outlet twice without seeing posts, verses, and memes about women encouraging women. I don’t know where the sentiment comes from and, seemingly suddenly, why it’s a thing, but I don’t care.Continue reading “I want you to be happy. Really.”

Sorry I’m Late…

“Sorry I’m late. I didn’t want to come.” Have y’all seen that? It’s how I’ve been feeling about TILTs and posting until I can get this week behind me. Whew! I bought myself this book to start next week, but I couldn’t wait. I’m about 15 pages in, and there are so many gems, IContinue reading “Sorry I’m Late…”

Counting The Minutes

I’m tired. Really tired. Are y’all? I never want to wish my life away at all, and I try not to want time to hurry up, but I’m ready for this break. There will be no girlbossing starting Friday. I anticipate only girlresting, girlreading, and of course, some girldrinking. I’ve got mimosa and spiked hotContinue reading “Counting The Minutes”

Different. Nice.

We can be different if you’re nice. If you’re nice, we can be friends. If we are friends, you can expect my loyalty, grace, and support. We can be different if you’re not nice. If you’re not nice, we can’t be friends. If we are not friends, you can (oddly) still expect my loyalty, grace,Continue reading “Different. Nice.”

Things I Learned Today / Sunday, August 15, 2021

Things I learned today… I started to crochet a blanket last night, and I had forgotten how much I loved it. While I was yarning over and hooking and turning, I realized that a crocheted blanket is one continuous string of yarn that is continuously looped and pulled to make stitch after stitch. The stitchesContinue reading “Things I Learned Today / Sunday, August 15, 2021”
