We love our knick knacks. That is why we have them after all. We have collected them, been gifted them and because of that, we see them and see the memories they hold. We see the trips we've been on. We've seen the memory of a loved one who has passed. We see firsts and… Continue reading Rearrange Your Knick Knacks
Daylight savings time is ending and we're about to fall back into brighter mornings (for now) and much darker nights. That doesn't mean that it won't be cloudy, rainy, or even...snowy when we open our eyes. Fall and winter are a time in many areas where the sun doesn't wake up for a while, if at… Continue reading Wake Up When The Sun Doesn’t
None of this malarkey about "because you can see the light". Here, today, we are talking about the dark. And to say anything after "the dark is beautiful" should be a sin. Talking about the dark as a way to see the light has its place, but it isn't here. The darkness is beautiful on its… Continue reading The Beauty of The Dark
We aren't dying, so we inherently tend not to value our lives. This is the best thing that I have been able to pull from watching chronically ill YouTubers like Emily Hayward, Daniel Thomas, Claire Wineland, The Frey Life (Mary Frey), and many others. Why should you watch someone with a terminal illness? Why should… Continue reading Value Your Life
This might not apply just to me but I'm going to act like it does because I can only ever speak for myself. When I say I'm not depressed, I mean a lot of things. I'll list them out, then we'll jump into it. I am not actively in a major depression I may be suffering from a… Continue reading “I’m Not Depressed”
If I had a nickel for every time I heard, "You write so dark!" followed by uncomfortable lectures I would really be rich.
Get up. Okay, okay. You know that and I know that you know that. But we don't fall that often so what we actually need to do as we are falling and right afterward can be a mystery. And I'm not just talking about physically falling. So you've fallen. Something in life has hit you hard… Continue reading What To Do When You Fall
This week's blog will look at my writing but not the actual words. We'll be looking at the reasons why I write. If I'm being honest, there are too many for me to actually cover. However, if I'm really honest about what keeps me coming back to a blank page (or even one with a few squiggles… Continue reading Why Do I Write?
That's right, I said it. Accept failure? Easy. Accept your failures? All right, not so easy. And we know why. Because it means we were not good enough, we messed up, or we were just plain unlucky. There are so many negative thoughts in our head, not just those three. They flutter around our failures and… Continue reading Accept Failure
The short answer is yes. The long answer is a sassy question back at you: I don't know are you? Though it's a little reminiscent of a teacher asking a student "can you", it does bring up a good point. Do you think you are a runner? This is something a lot of people, runners… Continue reading Am I Runner?
