365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 255

I just had a teachable moment with someone. Who was cutting me off when I spoke, thinking she knew what I wanted like she was a mind reader, and trying to make me work at her speed. This doesn’t happen at my house. Sometimes I will let one of these things go, given his situation but lately I have become much more of a boss, especially with my help. The days of walking over Mindy are long gone and the days of me standing up for myself I have become a reality and it’s not sometimes it’s pretty much all the time now. This might sound bitchy and self-centred but please no I do not mean it that way. I do not have time for sub par help. If you do not want to be around me in a positive way in my house you can leave. If you insult me, my family or something I hold close to my heart. You can leave. If you do not believe that I know what’s best for …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 254

Although today I was not really around people, I think that’s what I needed. Which is the beauty say as I’m a very social person but I think sometimes you need a day or a few hours alone and just to recharge and get things done. Not that I don’t love the hustle and bustle of my office but it’s nice to have a day where no one is bugging you and you can just hang out with your headphones in doing your thing. And yesterday’s post I spoke about the little things and have all the little things are what make life. This is one of those things and this is one of those days. After the week I have had I needed a day like this and I am happy to report that I was able to get 90% of my work done. There was one part of my day that was not necessarily the best I had to wait a while for my ride home and is much is I was annoyed …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 248

There are two things I can say for sure today. 1 I have some awesome friends who are there for me when I need them and when I don’t. You know who you are. Thank you for getting me in. 2 I have never felt more grounded or present with in my authentic self then I have felt today. Even when it is some stressful moments I found myself being able to get back to my centre and the values and morals I hold without too much trouble and while still feeling very much understood and supported. Today was an awesome day.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 245

This day. This day. Some days are just meant to be. This day. Long cold uneventful. Yet short, full of friendship and knowledge. Noticing the dichotomy and or two sided Ness of life is something I can say I have always noticed but especially lately has become a focus in my reality. I feel like seeing both sides and event for realizing your ever-changing place in a space brings new meaning to the moment and your ability to live within it. And therefore without other things. Think about it. something to chew on.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 243

I think often I know and witness people who are so caught up in trying to transform themselves into something whether it’s through working out or cosmetic surgery, or piercings, or tattoos people I want to reach a certain point at which they feel comfortable and feel good about themselves and or for some people a feeling of “normalcy” I am not immune to this. I fully admit that I have changed the feeling that is normal for a very long time. Before I realized normalcy is a relative. Instead, when I think of normalcy now, I think of equality. Wait, wait, not in the way you’re thinking. When I say equality I mean, The ability to get into my apartment weather in a different way you’re not just to be able to do that, to be able to come and go as I please and not have to rely on someone. To be able to get a job based on my knowledge and skills and not the fact that I use a mobility aid. …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 240

I can’t help but feel like I found my groove. In the work. In life. And most importantly I just maybe have found the person that I am. Of course this would hit me in the middle of the day, when taking a break to process is not possible. I will say knowing yourself or getting a glimpse of yourself, Is A much easier way to do life then one what is first think. I find at least, when you are true to your self it is so much easier to know what is right for you and what just won’t work. It’s easier to stand up for yourself and make your opinions known and that it’s easier to get what you want out of life. I have found, things are a lot less stressful and I will let a lot of things slide because I realize, I really only get one life and one chance to be who I am so why worry about the things that I cannot control. I want to focus …
