Unique, Unusual….used up

I’ve come to the conclusion if you want friends when you are older.  You better have made them when you are younger, because as you get older you think you are making friends but you actually are not.  Right now, I’m speaking from some hurt, so some of my friends will argue this point.  They…

Happiness is….

  The first time I saw this phrase was when my brothers were in elementary school and were working on a project for school. It was based off from the Peanuts comic strip of ‘Happiness is a warm puppy’. The purpose of the project was to realize what/who makes you happy. Pets My favorite times…

Goofy and Grateful

  I was looking in the mirror the other day and wondered when did I change who I was? I was trying so hard to be a serious, professional adult that I forgot that wasn’t who I was. I’ve tried on too many ‘masks’ with many careers and jobs. Always being the serious adult and…

Focus forward

  Have you heard about why windshields are bigger than rearview mirrors? Windshields are bigger because you should be focusing on what’s ahead of you instead of what is behind you. Which is good advice. Yet, do you follow that advice? I am horrible on dredging up my past mistakes and reliving them. Why do…

Energy, please?

This world is full of energy: solar, wind, gas, positive, negative… You get the idea. There are mornings when I have no energy to get out of bed, usually due to my depression or feelings like I’m not doing what I am supposed to be doing with my life. I try really hard at these…

Doggone Depression

  Depression sucks!  No really, it sucks the life out of you, the energy, the desire, the passion…well you get the idea.  And if you have it, you really get the idea.  I am writing right now to fight my depression and because I have a deal with my dog.  8:30 am Charlie is my…

Communication is key…..

  …to surviving pretty much anything.  Anxiety and depression like to make me feel that I am all alone in this battle.  The inner heckler likes to taunt with jabs like ‘no one cares’, ‘they are sick of your whining’, or ‘you are being overly dramatic’.  Which will shut me down and I will not…

Be Yourself…. the world needs YOU!

  Who are you?  I don’t know????  Growing up I was always asked what I was going to be when I got older.  I probably should have answered ‘older?’  Yet I didn’t and I have always been trying to figure that out.  I know what things I like, but I’ve never liked being defined by…

All Aboard Anxiety Express

  So, you’re walking from your car to the building where you have some work to do.  As you get closer to the building you start to feel a queasiness in your stomach which starts to travel to your chest and throat where you feel a tightness.  Breathing gets a little harder and all you…

Zoinks!

  Wow!  It was a year ago that I started this blog!  Thank you for those of you whom have been here since the beginning and thank you for those of you whom joined along the journey.    Much has happened during that year, some was good and helped me to grow and others were…

You are important!

  So in this day and age of so many images and sound bites bombarding us, I figured we could use some time out and some positive and inspirational images.    I also will put some links to some songs if I can for you to enjoy as well.        Take care my…
