365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 203

When they say balance is the key to life or anything to that effect they are not kidding. I have known this for a while but as I get older it seems to be making itself more and more apparent. Not even just physically although some may take it that way, in all other aspects of life, Socially, emotionally, financially, even with activities. I find if one or more it’s out of balance I feel off. Nothing is worse than feeling weird and not being able to put your finger on why. I should take time to mention, though I say I have know balance in one’s life creates a better life. I never did say I was any good at it. On the contrary, whenever I have free time and errands to run you better bet I am off and running. Then I get back from “vacation”and wonder why I feel like I need another vacation. Many people wonder the same thing. The thing is, I feel like, when you know something can, will, …

365 Days, Living In The Moment, Day 184

I’m a conqueror today. Not only did I get through the day, while not feeling well. I did something I know many people think I can’t, and I know I did it right. I know people will know the felling of finally figuring out how to do something yourself with no help. No matter how big or small that thing is, the feeling is the same. Indescribable to all but those who have experienced it with that I’m going to bed. Remember whatever you did today, accomplished or didn’t, you are a conqueror to.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 180

I was trying to figure out what I was going to post today because I’m spent the entire day in bed watching YouTube video. Which is absolutely fine and what I needed to do today in order to re-charge so I’m OK with that. At the same time though, I try to make the post interesting and/or at least something that has a point to it. As I was thinking all I could come up with was: all you need is chocolate. 🍫 It’s true if you think about it, when you’re really strong, or in some kind of mood, you know what I mean we’ve all been there. All you need is chocolate. Or to rephrase, Oh you need is the thing that will give you comfort and ground you in that moment. Whatever it is. It might be a hug, it might be a piece of cake, it might be to snuggle with a pet, it might be a conversation with a good friend. So find your chocolate, don’t ttake advantageof it. Too …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 107

We all know I sing it work, in the morning when no one is around and even when people are around but I try to keep myself under control I don’t sing loudly. Well today as I was driving home in an accessible van. Listening to a song in my earbuds, I don’t even remember which song it was but I started to sing and I guess I didn’t realize that I was singing until the driver actually said, is that you I got really embarrassed and said yeah I’m sorry, when he said you have a beautiful voice. To which I said something like you were so kind. But for whatever reason this statement seems to have stuck with me maybe because I actually kind of believe it or because I am starting to find a self that doesn’t silly care what people think. But I find, all of a sudden, I can take this complement and think, well maybe I actually do have a good voice, maybe what I have a thought on …

When you have no words let music speak. There is a reason why music has the power that it does and by humans have used it as a means of expression for so many years. I find music very healing and a way I can make sense of life. For others it may be associated with a memory or a specific feeling. A way to say the things you can’t or just way to bring people together, to have fun and be carefree. Everyone is going to have their own way of doing things, I would encourage you to incorporate music into your routine in someway and see if it makes a difference. I know for me a day without music is like a day without air. Everyone is going to have that thing that is their music their thing that they can’t live without find yours and use it to your advantage, don’t be afraid to engage in it if the situation allows and work with it to make your day better. Don’t have …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 91

Recently, and by recently I mean in the past year or so I have been through it. I did not have a wonderful 2017 and the first half of 2018 was not the best. That said since I changed my mind said to board life and started to “let it be” by putting things into the universe weather in thoughts or physical form and let things play out the way they’re supposed to play out not that I’m doing nothing to better myself for letting people do things for me but just trusting that things will work out the way they’re supposed to work out. The girl I had originally set out for myself usually does materialize. Knock on wood. I find it interesting to think about this and not deconstructed completely because I do believe that there is a certain amount of life that we cannot explain whether you want to call it karma or something else is up to you, butI truly believe that whatever it is, is on my side right now. …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 72

I felt like a normal 20 something today. I was asked to go to In after work get together late last week and I actually didn’t think I was going to go but I decided on Monday that I was gonna do something different that on the road to change there was going to be scary things and that hey maybe I would have fun. Guess what, I actually did and I say that in a way surprised and Innoway not because I know all of these people are great people inclusive fun and just great people to be around so why I wouldn’t go out for drinks with them I don’t know. Facing your fear can be so worth it and you can realize that maybe there is more support and more love around you than you ever thought possible you just for whatever reason couldn’t see it, that’s not a bad thing sometimes it just takes a catalyst whether it be a person, a saying, or a thought. It to get us to …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 51

I have had a pretty busy and long all consuming work week as of late and it has felt at times like I’m living to work, instead of working to live which is something I said I would never do. A work-ahalic I am not. To counter act this some people may say I have gotten a little crazier. I would say I’ve become more care free. I don’t care if I’m singing in the office and everyone can hear it. I also could care less if you don’t like my outfit as long as it’s professional. In short I find myself, making my own moments, instead of waiting for them to show up, if they do I take advantage of them, but I’m not reliant on others to make my life worth living anymore. Something else I think helps, I use my evenings and weekends for myself to do what I want to. Weather it’s being spontaneous and going out with friends on a wild and crazy lunch. Or sitting in deep contemplation listening …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 42

Happy Canada day everyone! I think a lot of people would think when should have plans on a day like today festivities are being with family. This year I don’t, and I am completely fine with that because last night I got to have two marathon conversations with friends of mine I have not seen in a very long time and I now realize that you don’t need to have a day to celebrate something, yes it’s nice, but, Life should be celebrated daily, not just because a specific time of year or day tells you too. I may have tried to do things today but something strange happened with my tummy and other than doing the normal adult-ing thing things one needs to do at the beginning of the month like paying rent in switching the calendar over and paying bills doing laundry all that stuff, (which I did get done by the way early in the morning before 11 AM) yeah I am that girl and I’m that good. I have done nothing …
