I cracked the back of my iPhone XR and I have been staying calm about it. The phone itself still works it’s just the back that is completely shattered. I dropped it I don’t know where, or how, or even how many times because I’ve dropped it a bunch. I went to the Apple Store today to get it looked at I was then told I needed to make an appointment. The appointment time came (two hours later) and then it took them a bit to actually get to me. I guess I’m used to waiting, or I’m just a polite person, or I’m just easy-going. Or all three of those things combined. I didn’t mind waiting but apparently my friend did and he made that clear. I was a little annoyed as well but definitely not to the extent he was. maybe I’m just used to it, I expect…

So I have turned into that girl, that girl who had ice cream for dinner while chatting with a friend about Life talking about weight gain and not giving a shit. Until of course my spoon breaks. And yes that did happen to me. It almost scratched my face actually. I don’t know what that says about me, if my face was too close to the pint where the spoon was so flimsy (being plastic)That it shut up I would’ve nowhere and created an issue with it shouldn’t have been one. WWMD, she would be so proud of me right now. So many changes have happened in my life recently and I’m just rolling with it. Both figuratively and literally. With the help of Ben & Jerry’s (and other ice cream brand as well, I don’t discriminate) and some good friends, I couldn’t be happier right now.

Today was a life-changing day but I will get into that in a different blog post in a couple of days. Suffice to say, I had the day off because I needed to be home to except Of life-changing delivery as well as a few other smaller packages that all happened to be coming today. Yeah, this morning when I woke up I could just tell my body and my brain did not want to get out of bed. Well one side of my brain, the other side was going through everything that was going to be done today trying to figure it all out and when it couldn’t this side of that wanted to sleep took over. I let it for a few minutes, but then, as I felt myself slipping into what I now know as the depression spiral, I distinctly remember saying, to myself “Mindy-you’ve been here…

I am ready for bed and all I did today was work and get groceries delivered. #LivingMyCPLife Adult thing is hard Period. And when you have a disability adult thing is even harder. Not because of the physical nature of it but because of having to coordinate everything. I don’t know that people quite understand just how much goes into every day of a life as a person with a disability Weather you have Help or not. There is always a schedule to follow. Whether it’s someone else’s or just your own list of to do’s. When people see us at work I think they think we got out of bed got dressed and came in but do they know what goes into that. The staff you have to schedule or the time and you have to do a lot. Not only to get out of the house but then…

Today could have turned out horribly. But it didn’t. I took the bus by myself with my walker for the first time in a very long time and I’m not dead. It took a lot out of me which I was expecting. That said, it didn’t take as much from me as I thought it would. I was able to see someone I haven’t in a very long time and I found out I might be able to do something that I had previously put out of my head -like not possible at all. I saw this on Facebook and it instantly spoke to me. I don’t think I’ve posted this quotebefore I know I’ve posted many along the same vein. simple yet powerful. I really hope this blog and to a lesser extent my YouTube channel (that I will get back to) I am actually thinking of making a…

I really can’t begin to explain the day that today was. Busy, cold, stressful but also awesome, happy, freeing and a joyful. So, what did I do today? Errands. I had to run to the post office I had to deal with something I went and got my nails done and I went to the dollar and bookstore. It wasn’t about the errands or the awesome planner that I got or even the six colour pen. Yes they are back. I think it was just the freedom of getting things done on my own schedule and not being rushed or pressured for time. Oh, did I mention, I was on the bus all day today. I had a friend with me and I feel like I conquered the world, like we went here there and everywhere and I still got my stuff done, still me. The ability to just get…

I was saying to someone today I just need a break. A vacation, I’ve heard of those, A time where you are able to do whatever you want and not have to worry about the responsibilities of life. As of right now, I realize that my last vacation was taken along time ago. And though I am totally OK with that. I also know that my body is screaming for just a bit of time. Realistically though, I don’t know how that is ever going to work. Then I am brought back to this moment with my cat Jackson on my left and my cat Persia sitting in my chair on my right and I remember how lucky I am to be where I am and able to do what I can do. I know that by the end of the week a lot of the stuff that is weighing…

Today’s lesson, don’t try and do everything in one day because if you do you’ll end up like me all the things might be completed but your body will be paying for it for the next week at least. I may have also packed my week to full of things to do but we will see. For some reason my body has purposely made me stop so I am going to roll with that until my body feels better. Learning lessons is different than lessons learned. We are always learning but it’s when we put into practice that learning that we can truly say we have learned.

People underestimate the power of the popsicle. For some reason the other day I had a major craving for Popsicles so I went oh and got four boxes delivered along with two bags of pepperoni sticks but the Popsicles were so good now I didn’t eat all four boxes at once but I did have two today that quite honestly were life-giving. Why am I talking about Popsicles? I believe in giving your body what it means physically mentally and spiritually so if my body wants to sleep chat with someone and eat Popsicles all day i’m going to let it in. Because, I know balance is the key and deprivation and depression go hand-in-hand. Too much of a good thing is very possible but not enough of a good thing can make things even worse.

this totally describes my day today. But I know I will make it, to the next day, and the one after that, and the one after that. And in case you’re wondering – you will too.
