I have not been sleeping well for the last couple nights, and I am realizing what a difference that makes to my sense of well-being. Nothing else has changed, I just haven’t had a solid night’s sleep.

I am looking around wildly to try to figure out what is causing this. We just got back . . . → Read More: Sleep

Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb – Which Way do I go?

I keep thinking I am going to write some fiction here, and then I get sidetracked again by life.

So today I am dealing with that age old problem – who do you believe & how do you decide what is right?

I have been trying to decide what kind of a diet to follow . . . → Read More: Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb – Which Way do I go?

Guns again

I am totally flabbergasted at the people who are willing to bully the kids who are marching for their lives right now. People (and I won’t name names, though you probably know who I am talking about) who are calling these kids names, claiming they are “crisis actors,” and saying they are being used by . . . → Read More: Guns again

Oops – I think I forgot about this blog

It has been over a month since I wrote here – wow, time goes fast.

Not to make excuses – more like giving an explanation, but I was pretty sick about a month ago, got better, and then totally spaced writing in this blog. Boy, that goes to show you that even when you are . . . → Read More: Oops – I think I forgot about this blog

Another school shooting

Another school shooting…my heart hurts so bad. I still cry when I see things about it on the news or on social media. And it makes me sad and angry at the same time.

I really do not want to be one of the people who becomes so hardened on one side or the other . . . → Read More: Another school shooting

Do something just for you

Do something just for you today. In fact, if you can manage it, do something just for you every day. It doesn’t have to be something grandiose and expensive. It can be as simple as turning off you phone, pouring a cup of tea, and sitting on your patio enjoying the sunset for 10 minutes. . . . → Read More: Do something just for you

Pet Peeves

I like to think I am pretty easy going, but I do have some pet peeves that make me a little less easy. For instance, I really hate (to an extreme that I am not proud of) when I go to a website and cannot find the Contacts. That drives me nuts! It makes me . . . → Read More: Pet Peeves

Commitments & Decisions

I have committed to writing here every week, and have done a pretty good (though not perfect) job of doing that. This tells me that I can, indeed, follow through on my commitments, and that is something that I have been attempting to do for a while now.

So today I am committing to get . . . → Read More: Commitments & Decisions

Lessons to learn

I have been feeling like I have lost a lot lately, but maybe that’s okay. It could be that the things I feel like I lost were things (and people) that had to go so that I could move forward. I don’t think there was anything bad about the people and things that seem to . . . → Read More: Lessons to learn


I have been lacking motivation lately. There are things I want to do – they are important to me on many levels – that I am just not motivated to do. So this morning I am redoubling my resolve to start doing them on a regular basis.

Lo and behold, I find the Universe, as . . . → Read More: Motivation
