When Plans Fall Apart

I have a little confession.  I am not really big on planning things. Well, I do plan to some degree, but very loosely.  I also use a planner, and it is very helpful to me, but I will explain how I use it in another post later this week.  Today I want to talk about […]

I have been Unapologetically M.I.A.

It has been a good long while since I have posted here so I figured it was about time.  I make no apologies for inconsistent posting, mostly because what I write here is primarily for myself more than anything.  I would never have started blogging again if I thought it would build into some sort […]

Gone Within

It is inevitable.  No matter how hard I try to be consistent with my outward expression there always comes a time for me where I find myself turning inward.  I am aware of the world around me and if engaged I will respond but for the most part I am quiet and withdrawn.  I am […]

Dream Hopping

I started a new art journal page very late last night and the first time I looked at the clock because I noticed I was tired, it was 3:00 am.  This is not entirely uncommon for me, but much more so in my younger days.  I have always felt more creative in the wee hours […]

“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.” Margaret Thatcher Today is one of those days where I can push myself away from my desk and feel as though I have […]

Inner Dialogue

The Buddha said that “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” I believe that to be true.  I believe in the Law of Attraction and I believe that when ever we put forth a clear enough request that we will receive what […]

Cherry on Top

One of the reasons I like to journal is to have a place to say all of the things I want my children to know, either about me or about my thoughts and feelings about the world we live in.  Let’s face it, despite my desire to talk their ear off, it doesn’t take long […]


A few months back I had some blood work done and it was determined that my hormone levels were out of balance.    It was no surprise to me as I am now 50 and I suspected that my hormone balance was whacky.  However, the symptoms I have been experiencing and dealing with could be related […]
