This Morning’s Prayer

So the hate train has pulled into the station and its occupants are poised to be in power for a minute. Those of us being hated feel some modicum of fear. I get that. I also get that in order to become really good at something, "you have to get terrible out of the way." … Continue reading This Morning’s Prayer

Almost There

Alright - major life happening number two is this Saturday. Woot. Once that's out of the way, I'll take maybe another week or so to re-spawn as they say in Nerd Fitness. I've got to figure out the new plan as I will no longer be an "I" but a part of a "we".  There's … Continue reading Almost There

BuJo-ing with ADOSS, Part 3

You can read Part 1 here, Part 2 here. As I'd mentioned, in June I joined the Nerd Fitness Academy. I liked the idea of having a definitive fitness program to follow as my half-assed attempts over the last few years hadn't netted any lasting or noticeable results in my physical appearance.  Anyway, of course … Continue reading BuJo-ing with ADOSS, Part 3

3:00 AM and I want to play 20 Questions.

Awake. Let's play 20 Questions.  I'll ask, you answer. Or at the very least, I want you to THINK, really think and come up with HONEST answers. I once wrote, "we lie best when we lie to ourselves."  Not sure if that was an original thought or if I heard it somewhere and forgot where … Continue reading 3:00 AM and I want to play 20 Questions.

“The fact that so many people today are depressed…”

"...is a sign that something's WRONG"  (emphasis is mine).  Quote from Marianne Williamson on an old episode of Marie Forlio TV. I'm trying y'all, I really am...and this showed up. Thank you Universe, Goddess, God, Buddha, the Ancestors, et. al.

Random Bits & Pieces, again

July Camp NaNo I was off to a pretty decent start - got a few words or so ahead of the game then didn't do a lick of writing these past two (or is it 3?) days. Sigh. So much going on right now (as you'll see below) that I'm living in "overwhelmed" mode. I … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces, again

Random Bits & Pieces

Happy Birthday I am now officially involved in counting down to my 50th birthday. I've got a list of activities I'm going to shoot for enjoying in the next 12 months, all culminating in the biggest birthday celebration I've had to date. Activities appear in no set order; those with specific dates are in bold: … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces

Accountability

I'm on week one of my 2nd Nerd Fitness Challenge, week two of my own Life/Fitness Challenge; the Eight Week Challenge on The Caffeinated Writer is in week three and has some new participants (check them out via links found here). In lieu of all this "challenging" going on, I am looking at some key … Continue reading Accountability
