I have been writing nearly every day (there were a couple of days in there I skipped, or if I was on vacation, I didn't contribute as frequently) since April 2012. I have had that many ideas free-flowing in my head for a while now. And last night... nothing. Today, I thought I would sit … Continue reading My Mind is Blank
I think everyone at some point in their lives thinks about their purpose in life. I was thinking about this yesterday. Not in some super deep meaningful way... like passing on my legacy or changing the world or anything. More like, what do I hope to get out of this life? What is my ultimate … Continue reading Enjoy!
I've spoken about action before. How actions speak louder than words. The truth is... action is a sexy lil' beast. Seriously. Action is HAWT. Example 1: kid is getting bullied. Someone walks in and stops it. Sticks up for the kid. Action. Example 2: Old lady struggling to open door. You run over and help … Continue reading And Action!
Listen, I'm not winning any prizes here on my lil' 'ol blog. I'm perfectly aware of my blogging world footprint (thanks to the analytics WordPress includes in my annual fee, lol). I'm no Oprah, Dalai Lama, or the like. I like to think a few of you out there actually get entertainment, a deep thought, … Continue reading Fake It ‘Til You Make It
What is it "they" say? ... something like, "I don't regret anything, it made me who I am today." Right?? Sounds like hooey. Something some fake person made up whose regrets were like blips on life's radar. "I regret picking the blue sweater instead of the red one!!!" Boo. What's funny about it is... dammit, … Continue reading Regret-Me-Not
Ok, stop the eye rolls, you Mobamas out there. I'm not on a diet... my house is. I remember thinking as a kid, how could my teacher still wear polyester pants and it's 1989? I mean, weren't those polyester pants popular in the late seventies? Or I'd go to my grandma's house and notice the … Continue reading The Diet
You are so lucky. You obviously have internet/cell access that you can read this blog. You are so lucky. You probably have friends/family/loved ones - maybe not everyone, but you have at least someone. You are so lucky. You probably have food, clean air, mobility. You are so lucky. Even if you have none of … Continue reading You are so Lucky
I went out with a guy friend once who said to me, "This is why you are single. You claim you want a guy to take care of you, yet you are way too independent and don't want to take care of the guy." Ok, back it on up herrrre. Yes, I am strong-willed. Yes, … Continue reading Um, I Still Like Being the Girl
"There is a trip coming up here very soon- a very good trip. And I feel once you come home from this trip, you need to make the changes in your life that you want to make, because you’re not happy. You’re not happy, not satisfied content with where things are, you want to make … Continue reading Just The Trip
It's a funny thing. I end up traveling alone quite a bit. It's not really what I set out to do... it's just sort of... what ends up happening. I plan a trip, I get someone to go with me. They can't make it for some reason/change plans. I'm usually not upset about it... in … Continue reading Traveling Alone
