365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 262

Warning the following blog post is up a little bit deep. I may sound a little dash off my rocker and a little bit whooo.Bear with me for a minute, and read to the end before you judge. I saw this and I really hope it applies to me. I need to know the answer to a question I have had for months and hopefully by the end of the week I will have it. I am just hoping that the answer is what I wanted to be, but if not I will have to find a way and I will because I always do, but I just want something to work out for once. I know this sounds negative and really unlike me, I try to be as positive as possible in my blogs because who wants to read about negative things. I am just really going through it right now, and above is how I honestly feel. I know life doesn’t always work out the way you want but it works out the …

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 252

So cold. It is so cold today. -37 without the wind -52 I think with the wind. It just means -cold. I came to a big conclusion today and no it was not about the cold it was about something else. And hopefully in a week or two I will be able to say more but because I am very superstitious I want to say more than that right now. But as soon as I am able to I will. What I can say, it is interesting how perspective of both things is gained at times you wouldn’t expect. It is even more interesting if you look at the choices people make at different points in their lives and compare them how you may end up seeing correlation and differences but in the end everyone is looking for the same thing. When I come to a decision about something I find it’s much easier for me to make decisions about other things as if everything hinged on one decision even though I know that is …

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 246

I realized today that sometimes all you need to do in a day is one or two things to make yourself feel accomplished. And that is completely fine. I did something today I almost never do i’m not going to go into it just yet because who knows who might read this. But I’m so glad I did it I really needed to. And sometimes living in the moment means being a little rebellious and not always following the rules. (What I did was not that bad). I can definitely say after today I feel more like myself now than I have in the past few days. But everything considered (concussion and oh) I’m doing pretty well and I’m grateful for that.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 236

I find myself in a weird position, caught between two worlds. Two sides of myself colliding and I have to figure out how to make it work. The artsy side of myself who would love it to express it self in different mediums and live in a space where being creative is encouraged and sought after. And the practical side of myself, who needs to figure out how to keep working, while also paying attention to my body and what it needs; while trying not to neglect my mind and in my heart. Many times I have thought the answer would just make it self clear, and sometimes it does but, I have a funny feeling, this time will be up to me. Do I do the same thing, or jump in with both feet and try to make it work. It’s hard to know when your heart is in one place but your mind is in another. You know if you could make one work the other would be easier. I can make money …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 235

Today was… An interesting day to say the least. I had it in my hand that I was going to do everything in the morning so that I could spend the rest of the day lying on the couch doing nothing. This meant I was rushing around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I actually got everything done. In 45 minutes I was able to shower, get something cooked for me, and fold and put away laundry. I won’t be doing this every single Sunday but as I just realized that I don’t have a free Saturday until basically the end of February this is good to know. Trying to figure out the balance between work and life is so hard and I want to do everything that it’s on my calendar I just don’t know if I’m going to have the spoons to do it all I will make it happen but how I don’t know. Hence, living in the moment. When I tell people how busy I am I often …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: 224

I am proud of myself today. I found today I was super tired and still am and after spending all day in bed I was able to deal with all of my beginning of the month responsibilities and prep without having a breakdown. The start of the year seems to always be hard for me but especially this year because a lot of things are up in the air and I won’t know until the last minute if those things are going to come through or not. Which gives my anxiety just a little more of a foothold. But, I was still able to get through everything and I’m still alive. I was also able to deal with a really kind of awkward situation in a very me kind of way without feeling weird about it. What I can say now with confidence is, I have found my voice and I am not afraid to use it when I need to. And when I used it things go my way. I am also realizing, I …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 209

As I sit here after eating dinner and hour later than I had hoped I have to pat myself on the back. I was supposed to be picked up from work today by the accessible transit Service and after waiting a few minutes I called to see if they were running late. In fact, they were and the operator told me it would be about 20 to 30 minutes. As I went back into my building and began to text a friend, telling her about the situation I stopped midsentence – mid text and realized, I have no control over this and neither does anybody who I would tell about it so knowing that I have no control over me I should just let it be. And within that I found the driver came in 10 minutes or so. Are year ago I would not have thought this way. Or year ago I would be a grumpy mess yammering about this situation to my friends for the next week. As if it was the worst …
