Half way through January and while I am not completely without proof that this 365 journey is not just another unrealized resolution, I certainly don’t have a lot to show for my time.  I am counting calories and working out, but neither with absolute dedication enough to make any difference…yet.  I’m about 75 pages into […]

Spark Joy

Spark Joy Spark Joy 100x100

So…in my first week of this marathon, what I’ve realized is that quality is more important than quantity. Am I right? I’m hoping this is not a copout but rather a realization that while you can find beauty in each passing day, expressing it out loud is not necessarily needed or wanted. I felt a […]

Love, Joy and Peace

Love, Joy and Peace Love Joy Peace 100x100

I Attract Love, Joy and Peace…that was my meditation mantra this evening.  It is a nice thought (especially early in my 365 journey), but not so sure that it applies to me at this moment. Nevertheless, I prevail.  Day 2 and my light was not dimmed today (maybe would have been a better mantra).  I […]

10…9…8… 2019 100x100

In the final hours of 2018, it was amazing how wide awake I was considering the amount of sleep I have required during my staycation this past week.  Maybe it was because a new year was approaching and I like the feeling of hope that it can bring.  It is like it can magically make […]

Don’t let the heat drag you down

Don’t let the heat drag you down Heat 100x100

I always say I have the best ideas in the shower.  The trick is holding on to them long enough to put pen to paper or remember them beyond the threshold of the shower. But if I could bottle the thoughts and feelings that I had earlier today, I am assured to have a great […]

Oh, my aching head

Oh, my aching head Heachache Mae West 100x100

As I sit writing this, I’m contemplating taking yet another pill to ward off a wicked headache.  This has sadly become a pretty common occurrence, but without knowing the reasoning behind it (however hard I have tried – doctors, tests, etc.), I pop a pill and hope it will take the pain away with it.

Clean Spaces, Happy Faces 160790609 100x100

It is no fun to spend your free time cleaning or organizing. But after seven years of running your own business, things accumulate and attention must be paid. I know I will be happy when it is all said and done. In the meantime, it is hours lost and tons of collected garbage getting in […]
