365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 263

I don’t want to say much more because I feel like this says it all. I have a personal connection with project semicolon and I know reading these words or giving advice to someone is one thing but actually being on the other side and the recipient of one of these simple app, I can tell you from experience, has made me cry before. Has recently made my entire day. It has made me feel like a person, At a time when I didn’t know who I was never mind what my purpose was. There was a time when I didn’t know if I word it be able to keep plans that were made or we can advance. A time when things were so bleak I couldn’t see past the next few hours. Really. Seriously. It was bad. I still have those thoughts sometimes but thanks to a lot of work and some good professional I am in a better place. Life has the will and does go out with or without you but I …

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 …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 200

Wow 200 days! I can’t believe I have made it this far. I really didn’t think I’d make it even past week. Honestly this challenge has truly become part of my life and changed how I look at things. Years ago I was a ball of stress, never even able to take a breath when talking to someone. Now – well someone describe me as very chill. And I am. To say I don’t let the little things get to me would be a lie, because everyone has their days. I had one yesterday in fact. But often I am able to put the little things into perspective, and even the big things don’t seem life ending or life-changing, Unless of course they are. 200 days is a mile stone, but there are so many fun things to come, knowing about a few of them and not knowing about many of them I can say for certain, this is going to be a fun life changing year and continuing this journey and creating the next …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 197

There are some days where, For whatever reason you get up and do you know and that it is going to be a good day today. On the flipside there are other days where you know that something bad is going to happen. This was neither of those days. This was one of those days that memories are made of. That sounds corny, I know. But the more I have these days, The more I want to acknowledge them. The days where I just feel like a normal person. Regardless of what went on in my day, Weather I’m having a good day or not medically, regardless of the chair. My people make me feel normal, my people being, my tribe, the people who I choose to surround myself with. Not those who I have to be around. Like I said yesterday, I feel like the choosing makes all the difference. By choosing something, I inherently have control. When something is done to me, or for me without my knowledge or permission or recognition. Thus …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 193

Reflecting back on this time a year ago I was a totally different person. I wrote this comment on Facebook today and I think it sums it up well:I can’t say I’m 100% better, but I can’t say it’s 100% different. Today I did a photo shoot with a friend of mine and it turned out awesome. Pictures will follow shortly hopefully. Not to undermine any of my previous thoughts. Now looking back, and even now in the present, I can see the place I was in at the time, and how I felt that way. But in the present when this happens, I can now see, the way out, the light, the fact that everything which beginnings must end and I get to choose, in most situations, that ending. I can see the person who was floundering trying to find her purpose. now I know my purpose, and I’m not afraid to stand in it or stand up for it. Where I was when defeated I am no powerful. I now see myself for …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 192

Today with the recovery day. I did pretty much nothing other then I watched YouTube videos until I went to the spa to get pampered. Some people may call me a princess to which I say here here. I will admit it, and I’m proud of it.If doing something specifically for me once a month is a bad thing then I am a criminal. Why because I indulged in self-care. My two for babies Jackson and Persia also lead around with me although I think they were cuter than I was. literally beside each other basking in the warmth generated by the heated blanket. I think we can learn a lot from animals and today they got it still ride. I’m glad I got out today I needed to after oh the things that went on yesterday. Just don’t ask. But today is a different day and that it’s in the past so I’m going to leave it there. I’m going to take another day to make sure that I am fully OK and then …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 191

Today was not my favourite day. I had to deal with some stuff that no one likes to deal with. I know I did the right thing and the what happen will happen, I also know that I have great friends who have and will help as much as they can if I need to deal with this again. But that’s not really what today is a boat. I was actually racking my brain over what to post today because I don’t like to talk about negative things and when I was getting back from running errands part of my keychain that laugh. As I pick it up I realized what it said. I can’t help but think that maybe someone was looking out for me. Or my thing is just no went to fall apart and. I just thought it was interesting because though I love this tag I never really think about it. And I kind of forgot that it was even there. It was a great little reminder that people have my …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 188

How does the song go, I love myself today, not like yesterday, I’m cool, I’m calm, I’m gonna be okay. Ah hah. Why do I say this, well because I got the best tattoo in the world yesterday and no I am not posting a picture here. Reason being I have seen people who post pictures of their tattoos get people copying there tattoos and I don’t really want that to happen. In all seriousness though, I will probably be posting pictures in the next few days I haven’t been able to take the picture I want yet though. Anyway, not what does blog post is about at all. I have found my favourite drink. Yes I am 28 years old and I am reading about a can of Soda. I recently discovered one of the grocery stores I get delivery from has started stalking pineapple crush So I got six cans so I could try it. I spent way too much on these cans by the way. But I love it. that’s the big …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: 186

I now know and have been able to put into practice The thoughts, I don’t care. I remember a time when I used to feel that everything was my responsibility and that if something had to do with me or was put on my plate I had to do it no matter what. I now know that it is OK and at some points understandable to think to myself what even to say well that’s nice but I don’t care or I don’t have time or you have fun with that. In may have taken me a while to come to this thought process but guess but I don’t care.
