365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 270

I have to say the next few days of posts will be very short. I got a concussion a few weeks ago and haven’t been treating it properly so I am now on strict precautions for very little screen time to wrap my head heel. One thing I can say not having had a concussion before I now understand how simple things can be made so hard. And things that I take for granted like being able to use the phone or computer have become harder for me which is why I think this quote encapsulates his experience because through all of this and through whatever a person goes through you should never let an experience or a situation though your sparkle. I once thought the work was everything and being good at work and was going to mean everything to me and in my life. That is not true at least for me because I realize now more than ever that work is only one aspect of what makes me me and there are …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 269

I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know if this is something that comes with English or experience or just knowing yourself but it’s so true. Especially in the context of this blog, I tried to post something positive most days giving you a little look into my wife while at the same time trying to keep it real and not trying to paint everything with rose coloured glasses. Everyone goes through personal struggle that’s just a fact. Then there are people who have additional challenges whatever they are and sometimes for those people life can look different but is still valuable and can still be valuable. This is something for us all to remember. Sometimes the most broken people are the most interesting to talk to you and sometimes the quietest person has every reason behind their silence. Some people are fun. Some people wear their heart on their sleeve. And some people live unapologetically authentically. Life is ironic.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 268

I had to remind myself of this today and I had to keep reminding myself of this all week really but it’s a good piece of advice.And someone with a disability I can say that I often have challenges that others may not and often have to prove myself just doing “normal” things. often people underestimate me and when they do I have to say I just kind of laughed to myself because I know when I approve them on they are going to be the ones shocked and having to renegotiate what they thought of me while I sit humbly thinking well I knew I could do it. I acknowledge it may take me longer and I may do it in a different way but in the end it gets done and a lot of the time people realize how inefficient they once were or are when they see how another person does something. So underestimate me that’s fine just don’t be shocked when the underestimated rise. This probably sounds arrogant I am not …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 267

I thought because today is Valentine’s Day I would talk a little bit about self-care. Something that I have been really bad at lately and my body and so are getting mad at me for it. How do I know what? I just do, I can feel it and sends it and as much as I am in my authentic self with in that but I also know when my alignment is off. I know it sounds a little woo but it works for me. I am the type of person to give and give to other people or things in my life to the extent that I will often leave myself for last and go and do things because they need to be done or it would be easier to do X now instead of ex and Y later so I basically run myself to the bone. I acknowledge that, but now I feel it even more intensely and deeper than I have before. So I am taking my self-care seriously and, not just …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 266

this is so perfect for today because I think for the first time in a while I am totally OK with my circle. Big or small I know where everything fits. Not to say that something won’t change, actually I hope it does but that I am completely OK with understanding that some people are only to be in your circle for time while others will be there a lifetime. I am not afraid to let people go – or to truly let things be and follow the path that is put in front of me as I discover it. I think as scary as it is to say I am ready to leave what I know for something different that I feel is going to be more authentic to me. What that is, I have no idea but I am willing to lean into the wind, listen carefully walk with intention and open my eyes to what’s next.

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 …
