Stupid Stuff I Do

I’m a real piece of work sometimes… I log into Zoom calls and can’t get in, then wonder what’s wrong. The meeting is tomorrow. I make a point to buy heavy cream for my coffee at the grocery store, because I’m out at work and can’t enjoy my coffee without it. Then I leave itContinue reading “Stupid Stuff I Do”

I Am Learning to Love the Sound

I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that aren’t good for me. Is that not the best? I saw it posted this morning, and I could hear the sound…and it’s sweet. It’s not easy to (a) admit when something is not good for you and (b) walk awayContinue reading “I Am Learning to Love the Sound”

Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety

Anxiety is a bitch. If you’ve experienced it, you know it can be triggered by something big…or insignificant…or come on without warning and for no reason. You just feel freaking nervous…and anxious…and like something bad is about to happen…and you can’t breathe good…and there’s some weird fear thing happening…and you shake a little…. Ridiculous. Today,Continue reading “Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety”

Sick of Shiny

I am a collector of quotes. I like inspirational sayings, motivating verses, and passages that hit home. I have a whole Pinterest board related to them, as well as various and sundry clippings, post-its, and cut outs of gems that struck a chord. But sometimes I get sick of shiny. I don’t want to seeContinue reading “Sick of Shiny”

AWOL…but with permission.

I’ve been AWOL. I never thought I would go without posting a TILT, but it’s been over a week without one. I was pretty committed and swore I’d never do it. But I had permission…from myself. I think sometimes life surrounds us with a hundred little stacks and piles. Stacks and stacks of responsibilities. PilesContinue reading “AWOL…but with permission.”

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”

Let yourself go?

What do y’all think it means if you’ve “let yourself go”? Are you eating ice cream straight from the carton, curled up on the couch in sweats, most weekends? Girl. Took a shower…maybe yesterday? Sister. Wear your husband’s old, holey softball tournament tshirt and faded leggings…with Uggs… to the grocery store? Sweet Friend. We doContinue reading “Let yourself go?”

I’m working this week to CREATE a little more peace, love, and joy by making some adjustments here and there to my daily habits.  Yesterday, I told you about the first one… I turned off my email notifications.
