365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 257

There are definitely days where living in the moment is a choice and letting things roll off your back is a task and a half. I want to acknowledge that. Today was one of those days. Not in the majority actually but when it came to accessibility. I could take this blog post in many different ways but for the sake of time and education I am going to say, accessibility is not just physical, it is as much to do with attitudes and assumptions being barriers as it is weather for stairs. Something to keep in mind when you next encounter a person with a disability. That said, the right attitude can get you through almost any situation this is true both in life and in terms of accessibility and living with a disability as part of your daily existence. If you have one or two good people in your life that can keep the right type of attitude for you it’s surprising how much your life can change and you can get through. …

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 247

It’s interesting how a day can change from good to not so great to better to not so good and then get better again. Many people would just say that’s life and I guess that’s true but have you ever thought about how when someone asked you how your day was or is going you really only go out with an over arching emotion, or you talk about one thing that happened and let that define your entire day. I do that and I am trying not to as of late. I’m trying to embrace life as it comes and be authentic I find it does not come to you within A few months or even a year I think it’s an ongoing process and something that always should be worked on. Today I gave away a bunch of bags that I have been meaning to get rid of forever and I don’t care that they are gone but I find myself obsessing over one small bag that I did not mean to giveaway and …

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: Day 232

I left this morning at 6:30 AM I came back this evening at 8:30 PM. My muscles are so tight and contracted even when I try to relax them I can’t. And I was sitting all that time. Don’t get me wrong today was a really good day. I mean work was work, but I was able to get my nails done and pamper myself a little bit in. Which you know, if you know me, getting my nails done and a couple other things at the spa once a month is part of my mental health/self-care routine. If it all went away tomorrow I could definitely deal with it. Believe me, I have thought about cutting it out. But then I’ve had people in my life, even my mom, tell me not to. Even saying/typing that, is really hard for me, because I know that money could be going to something else and I know I still struggle with feeling worthy of the time, attention, and care, that is paid to you at the …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 230

Today was the day I was trying to avoid, the day I was talking about where you push yourself I’m to the point that you find yourself over extended and really paying for it physically and mentally. That was my day today. I did end up feeling more like myself by the end of the day and through the evening which went way too quickly. I don’t really know what I’m doing about tomorrow yet but I’m going to take it as it comes and listen to my body instead of my brain. I really don’t want to end up in the position I was in today. It’s just going to make things worse going forward and injuries harder to heal from. And when I say things in this sense I feel the need to specify that these “things” are physical. I also feel the need to say mentally I was fine, I was just scattered and couldn’t tell you what I was doing, nor remember anything. If my day was any more complicated then …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 212

Today has really tested me in many ways. There are many times I could have given up but I found my confidence today. There was at least one conversation I really didn’t want to have but had to because it was one of those conversations you just can’t avoid. End it was taxing but in the end I’m happy with my decision and I will stick by it. Because, I am important and worth the decisions that I make or the time that I choose to give to someone in. Just as another’s is time is just as important as your own. I like my life today.
