Mental Health Monday, What I Mean When I Say

“I Love Summer”

Wait, wait. Didn't I make a post about how I love winter? How can I love winter and also love summer? It's not that big of a surprise, but I don't really have a favorite season as I mentioned in the other article. But my love of summer is a little different than my love… Continue reading “I Love Summer”

What I Mean When I Say

“I’m A Pack Rat”

But I am not a hoarder. If you walked into my house, sat in my car, or worked at my desk, you would not think that I am a little bit of a pack rat and that I always have been. I keep things clean and tidy. And I don't pile up trash. Here's the… Continue reading “I’m A Pack Rat”

“Today Is A Good Day”

Or maybe it isn't. But I'm saying it is. I'm waking up today and the first thought in my mind that I'm deliberately thinking is, "Today is a good day".

“I’ve Changed”

Partially because I am absolutely obsessed with the concept of change. It's such a nifty idea isn't it? We can start off… Continue reading “I’ve Changed”

What I Mean When I Say

I love “love”

I got told a lot in my youth that there were two words I had to be very careful about using. The first one was "hate". You can dislike something, I was told, but to hate it you have to be really sure because that's a big word. And that formed a pretty positive habit. I… Continue reading I love “love”
