What does your anxiety look like? This morning, mine looks like a super muddled, very chaotic brain, the beginnings of a headache, and restlessness. So I got up, took some medicine, and made coffee. In an effort to try and settle my brain, I keep reminding myself… Your thoughts are running away with you. Don’tContinue reading “What does your anxiety look like?”

Up at 7:30 am, I figured I could dread today and what all it might bring or get busy making peace for myself. So I made some comfort food. It smelled so good while it was baking. If you need a good oatmeal, the recipe is in the comments. I got it from a veganContinue reading “Oatmeal Recipe”
RIP to My Sanity
Here’s where the erosion of your sanity will get you… Our company’s vans died literally dead seemingly all at once (ummm, today), and we are now in a pickle. So I found two online, had them brought down from Murfreesboro, TN (which took some doing), and I’ve been scrambling to figure out how in theContinue reading “RIP to My Sanity”
Life. Smacks. Peace.
Y’all ever get up and the morning and go about your business just to be smacked in the face with a big, fat truth?! Yeah. And the funny thing about that truth is that it was there all along. It isn’t new. It isn’t a surprise. The time for all things to come together, mixContinue reading “Life. Smacks. Peace.”
Go. Live. Life. You only get one.
Thought it was worth sharing that my quest to spend more time with my girl is going well! We had a great time together yesterday afternoon eating good food and exploring. The Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum was a blast, and we ate all the falafel and ganoush at Casablanca cafe. The day before, weContinue reading “Go. Live. Life. You only get one.”
5 Reasons You Need To Take Time For Yourself NOW
Soul searching has its benefits. If you slow down long enough to just be with yourself, sift through your thoughts, and get reacquainted with the real you, you’ll make some progress toward clarity. I’m not talking about “self care” either – bubble baths, getting your nails done, and whatnot. I’m talking deep soul searching, solitude,Continue reading “5 Reasons You Need To Take Time For Yourself NOW”
Keepin’ it real.
Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. I am aware that I may come across as Nancy lately. I have posted recently about my feeling lost, used up, tired. I’ve used the words “bitter” and “hermit”, yet truly, I’m not sorry. I want to keep it real. Before I go on, don’t get me wrong. I wantContinue reading “Keepin’ it real.”
See The World
You don’t see the world as it is. You see it as you are. What?! I heard this yesterday. I had to write it down and read it 7 times. Is this real? Do we do this? Do I not see the world for what it really is? What even is it? Is it somethingContinue reading “See The World”
I Don’t Belong To Me
Well, hmmm. I always feel awkward writing the first post after a hiatus. What a blogger I am, right? Life progresses at warp speed. I run from hell to breakfast, and go long periods without posting then…BOOM…here I am. Sorry about that. Believe me. My mind is CONSUMED with thoughts, and I think of writingContinue reading “I Don’t Belong To Me”
I’m a walking conundrum… I am hungry, but I am also fat. Don’t eat it, Sister. I am fat, but I also like cheese dip. Order a “small” cheese dip. I want pretty hair, but dang, I don’t want to wash it today. Lazy. I like nice clothes, but I sho ain’t going shopping. Ewww.Continue reading “Walking Conundrum”
