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: 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 220

I think there are some things that are just meant to be dreams but then there are some dream which ones they are put out into the world you’d be surprised how quickly they can become more of a reality then you would’ve ever expected them to. I hope that makes sense, I can’t really go into this more at this point but I will if/when I know more about it and that reality actually comes to fruition. I say all of this to remind you that dreams are always possible and being positive although it’s not necessarily easy all of the time I can help to bring those dreams into A tangible state. What I am thinking of when I say this is the possibility of having more freedom and control over Life independence within myself and my mobility but also with that comes confidence and The knowledge that you as a person whether disabled or not can overcome obstacles and do things weather people say you can or not. Don’t let others dictate …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 217

There is one fact that was reinforced time and time again today, family doesn’t have to be biological it can be/become people you choose to surround yourself with because for whatever reason they make you feel good. And that reasoning is enough. I challenge the “traditional” version of family because over the past year I have seen family be created and taking on, moulded and reshaped as people and situations change. Family is the people you choose to surround yourself with, the love, the energy, the shared interests or shared experiences that bring you together. Family doesn’t have to be DNA, in fact, I believe, families that are created by people with a shared interest, vision, or values are often closer and become more unbreakable in bond then families that are biologically related. I have nothing against my biological family. I find it though, often I am understood or, if it better, with others. Because of many different factors. Recently this has all come together for me so I thought I would share them. Don’t …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 214

I was relaxing with the cat when I heard a cat miaowing and so loud I almost thought it was one of mine. After checking the Jackson and Persia we’re Okay I opened The door to see a little Texido cat bounding towards me. I just close the door as he tried to stick his little head in. I grabbed my keys and my phone and opened the door again just for the little one to run right into my apartment. Jackson and Persia heard the meowing, before I did, so they were interested and out in the living room. With this little one in the house they both didn’t really know what to do and I am being the protective mum that I am jumped into protection mode, I don’t know where this cat has been, if it has had its shots, never mind if it’s the one that has been found on the stairs. (We had a cat found on the stairs earlier this week and then has been posted up, since trying …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 213

Today was one of those days you never expect to happen. You know what I mean? The ones that start out normally and that you have no expectations for and then all of a sudden they become one of those days you will look back on with pride. Today was one of those days for me. I didn’t do anything spectacular, or anything really different. What I think what changed is my confidence in myself and the abilities I have. I find now, I can make a decision and stick by it. I can also see through people’s words and think through their previous actions and reactions. I have given myself permission to be myself. I am also not apologizing anymore for needing or being the person that I am. Today was a mile stone day, a day I will always remember.

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.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 210

As I look back on today the work part, professional Mindy did nothing remarkable really. In the taking care of business, personal Mindy, she got it together today. Now I’m going to stop talking about myself in the second person, and say, today I feel like great strides were made, I finally feel somewhat on top of several different situations going on in life that I have needed to get a hold of for a while. To finally feel in control of something, after not having control of it for a long time, I can’t describe the feeling. I also found myself being conscious of my needs yet resource full with what I have. The last and one of the most noticeable shifts in my thinking has come gradually over the past few months but I certainly noticed it today. I don’t deny any more that I like and in many ways I need to (I hate using those words in this context) because I feel like some of this is a luxury, I get …
