“What the world values is money, reputation, achievement, sensory satisfaction. What it considers misfortune is having limited means to partake in what it values. When people feel deprived, they become anxious or depressed. But in fact, it is the ver...See More »
The power of celibacy is real. It allows you to see the world differently. It allows you to manifest your well-being. It allows you to become more in touch with yourself and the world, establishing inner peace. It is the purest form of self-awareness...See More »
I used to use site as an outlet for my pain. A way to express my sadness anonymously, without the fear of anyone I know actually finding out. For a long time, it worked. I connected with people in similar situations, and received a different perspect...See More »
Another perfect spring day. Warm sunshine and puffy white clouds and the softest of breezes. Doors and windows open and curtains fluttering. The smell of fresh air and the soundtrack of songbirds roaming through my rooms. It reminds me of the quiet p...See More »
They came early! I wasn’t paying attention when I ordered them. They came all the way from Yorkshire so I’m surprised they’re here already. LOL I’ll get a kick out of all the colours spelled with a u even if I can’t make anything decent with them. 😄...See More »
These things smell glorious. Not really sure what they are but they’re making my day. The sun is up, the sky is blue, and out my window is a river flowing by sprinkled with diamonds as it lies between me and the sun. It’s like sitting in a little gl...See More »
Lord I love playing with something new! 😄😌 I love these horribly flawed beginnings that lead to measurable progress. I love reading books and watching videos and learning a new process. And these wobbly little would-be pretties will with any luck b...See More »
I’m going to miss these busy days someday when I’m not dashing through the grocery store at 6:30 a.m. because somebody forgot something that changed the schedule. I like the grocery store that time of day. I’m going to miss the loading of the van ...See More »
I was working for a company called Zara before I got my new job, in Bordeaux for a year and in London for a year. It was an ok job, great company, but I like my new job. I've already travelled here to England twice,to Budapest and to Rome! I...See More »
It’s hard to feel like you’re doing well in a new job when everything’s new and it’s easy to get confused and it takes so long to get anything accomplished. So it made my day today to be told I was doing really well and they’d be delegating some proj...See More »
I feel good! I feel like I’m kickin ass at this new phase of life. I suspect I’m starting to get obnoxious about it. 😂 It’s such a relief though,you know? I either stand too close to the trees and lose sight of the forest or stand too far away and ca...See More »
I don’t think happiness is such the bright and carefree or even fragile thing it used to be for me. It has low notes now. A hint of melancholy that gives it an anchor at a depth it didn’t have before. Its energy is more restrained, savored, calm. An...See More »
It’s one of those brilliant golden mornings. Downright cool and dewy. Answers are presenting themselves, new paths coming into view. A better kind of uncertainty. But I feel capable. I feel ...good. I feel loved. I feel needed. That will change. Thes...See More »
I got two fun surprises today! I suppose I should warn you here to remember how easily amused I am. I went to a furniture store. I love furniture stores to a degree that inspires the man to tell me several times emphatically that we are just LOOKING ...See More »
I feel like this today. My cup runneth over doesn’t just mean the sense of plenty or the abundance of blessings. It’s the surge...the literal rush of freedom and joy upon breaking through boundaries. Arms and heart thrown open. I am full to overflo...See More »
I bought myself a scarf. A bright happy red that makes me think of balloons floating free up to the sky. Big enough for me and a friend but I’m not sharing. LOL And so soft it feels like one of those rare and glorious hugs from someone who feels like...See More »
All my exams are over and hopefully I don't have to do maths again. Even though I'm going to be stressed over the summer waiting for my grades, I'm happy that I have no more exams(for now!) and don't have to worry about studying f...See More »
I went to sleep around 9pm last night and woke up at 6:30am! I can't believe it! It feels so great to have gone to bed early and to have woken up early. The whole day is ahead of me! I have a fat burning class at 9am, and then I'm going to ...See More »
I think it's because my meditation teacher did some pranic healing on me sometime last night. I woke up this morning (okay, afternoon...) feeling really great and amazing, like I normally do after getting a pranic healing at home. I check my mes...See More »
Yesterday was so amazing! I can't believe I took that risk! I went over to his place to watch a film, which was kind of a joke- we never actually watched it. We ended up chatting for over 5 hours about random stuff. I'm so sleep deprived th...See More »
I have been on a journey over the last few years. I have lost many things. Perhaps the most hurtful was family. BUT, something wonderful recently came about even though it began with sad news... Tragically, my (birth) mother died 2 weeks ago. ...See More »
I wish I could go back in time and make my 15-year-old me understand that it does get better eventually. I would take away the knife she's holding and tell her that if she ends her life now, she will never meet the most awesome people ever, neve...See More »
I'm not sure where to start. I just got back from the gas station, I went to get some milk. When I got there I tried going in through the door, but it was locked. I saw this man at the window and I asked him if they were closed. He pointed at...See More »
I got my license today. I drove around to the store a couple of times with a good friend of mine. It was very fun. I am going to take him to youth group with me tomorrow as well. I love driving. I also am pretty confident that I passed my Algebra 2 ...See More »
I wasn’t planning it (meaning the window frame still needs painting and supper was take-out LOL), but I ended up at the 3D IMAX with my awesomely goofy 3D glasses and artificially flavored popcorn grinning like a loon at Thor Ragnarok last night. And...See More »
I pick up M today! I’ll get to hear about adventures and funny stories...new happy memories she will have. It’s a balm on the soul to see happy pages inserted in your child’s story. Then I’ll come home and see what kind of page that camp laundry is g...See More »
The little things are getting through. I don't think anything lifts spirits quite so effectively as a multitude of little things. Big things are like a sugar rush. A big whammy that leaves you crashed when it ends. But the little things are ev...See More »
Just sitting here listening to grumbly thunder. We haven't had a stormy summer, so I don't remember the last time it was here. Rain pattering on the windows. Dark house. A gentle storm. They're a soft sort of passionate something, aren...See More »
I am going to move books today. I (meaning the man) have put all the bookshelves in my room that will fit and now it's time to fill them up. I love that. I worked in a library as a teenager - my first job. I just like being around books. The loo...See More »
Some days I think it...my cup runneth over. I know without doubt on a daily basis that I am an outrageously fortunate individual. Life has been primarily peaceful and kind to me. And then there are days like today when so much joy gets piled on top o...See More »
Oh what a wonderful day!! My road trip was a laugh out loud party. 😆 I may drive your typical American Mom Mobile, but that sucker has an awesome stereo in it. This song (which sounds perfectly normal everywhere else) came on and the bass rattled my ...See More »
You ever drive by a house and just admire its homeishness?? Those little bits and pieces of charm and character and heart that make it look inviting and loved? There's a lady down the street who has a great talent for that. I like to just look a...See More »
I had a lovely day off. Cool breeze, blue sky, warm sunshine. I donated blood which always makes me feel good even when it makes me feel kinda sick. My husband said someone at his chiropracter was trying to get him to bring me in because she's s...See More »
