Trials, Tribulations..Temper? Twenty?

So, I’ve never been known in my family to have a quiet voice and void of a temper.  I am loud, vocal, and have a very feisty, fiery temper.  I believe this is from the anxiety and depression.  I guess I’m like an animal when I feel like I’m trapped (due to the anxiety) and…

Silence: Friend or Foe? I choose silly or was that sick?

So, as you can tell it’s a distractible day.  Whenever I’m not feeling well its hard for me to stay focused on one task.  So, let’s have that be part of today’s post!  Are there things or events that make it harder for you to focus or make it harder to function? Silence Right now,…

Rough day? Reach out, rinse, repeat.

Ok, my warped weird side is showing through.  Honestly, this week’s post was going to be about embracing/releasing your weirdness, but after having a couple of dark days I decided to remind myself and anyone else to reach out during those dark times.  Which I don’t know about you, but is very hard when you…

Quieting the Inner Heckler? Can it be done?

So, you have negative thoughts echoing in your head; the fun of anxiety and depression-not really. 😉  How do you shut them down or gag the inner heckler in your head?  I wish I could say I know the answer to that question and tell you how, but I don’t.  There are some ways I…

Pity party to personal peace

  So, how has your week been?  Mine has been full of ups and downs.  And I sit here on a quiet morning-Charlie, my pup, woke me up early-reflecting on the week and what I can learn from it.  There was definitely high five moments, pity parties, anxiety attacks, and depressive moments.  I guess I…

Opportunities….Optimistic….Overly anxious….OOPS!

So, as this new year begins I am faced with many decisions as this is my last semester at the college.  Where do I go from here?  What do I do with this new degree?  How do I keep in touch with the friends I’ve made?  What do I want to be when I grow…

New Year’s Resolutions…..Nope, I think not.

Every year, society expects everyone to make New Year’s Resolutions.  Those resolutions put way too much expectations on the year and ourselves.  So honestly, its no wonder at the end of the year we are disappointed in how the year went.  This year maybe we should not make resolutions, what do you think? Expectations I…

Merry: Memories….Masks….. Mistakes…..Meditation

Wow!  This year is almost over?  How did that happen….we always say that, but it happens the same way every year. 😉  So, as we all do at this time, I reflect over the recent year.  Having a brain hardwired to dwell over the bad, I have to train and remind myself it was not…

Love, Laugh, Loss….Let go?

This time of the year is most susceptible to causing us to reflect on the past year, our lives, friends, family, and ones we have loss-either to changes in our lives or them crossing over to the other side. I’m not any different, so hopefully the following will help you during each of the ways…

JUST STOP!!!!! I’ve had enough!

This past week seems to be a culmination of how many proverbial body blows I can receive without going completely insane.  Granted this is the last week of college classes for the semester and all projects are getting completed, but I could use a break from all of the other nonsense in my life.  How…
