355 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 228

I slept today! I am so happy I can’t even express it. I feel so good, I know I needed it because I was starting to get really forgetful and doing strange things. I was so happy to be able to lie on the couch all day. To be able to just be in my living room, instead of my bed room is a huge step for me, never mind to do it all day. Somehow I was also able to do my laundry, meal prep, because yes I am that person, and do all of my before Monday tasks. Thanks to good help. It always surprises me how well I am able to deal with life and the random thinks that pop In and out of it because I remember a time when I couldn’t deal with anything. Life now is so different, I can’t even fathom being the person that I was. So make all the growth, others may call it learning to deal with. Yet others may call it depression. I would …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 195

So, I was able to slow things down today and in the slowing down I was able to get more done. Funny how that works. I think, and I’m just thinking out loud here, literally, voice recognition is a wonderful thing. I wonder if as a person Who is disabled I am always trying to prove myself. And, speed is often something people are looking for, so, it’s something that I have learned operate in. So much so, when I needed to slow down I have a harder time. But, I as a disabled person I am able to have, and take, the luxury of time because often speed is not a choice for me. I operate on Mindy time and sometimes that time cannot be changed. If you can’t handle that, I’m sorry, but you’re never gonna get me. what I have struggled with over the years is realizing that it is OK to take that time. It is not a weakness, in fact it is the Strank’s. I am deserving of that time, …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 163

When everything starts to work out I am the pessimist who is waiting for the other shoe to drop. Is in these moments I tried to become more conscious of making the most of every moment – sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. That being said, I have learned, and I hope you have two, do these posts, to celebrate or at least a knowledge though little victories. Because, if you overlooked the little things you’ll never be able to see or fully appreciate the big moments. Today is one of those big little moments for me. I realize now I am in a good place, and get though life is not perfect, and really, who is like is? I am doing pretty well for myself. If you were struggling today no that I am thinking of you and I hope this is the man’s give you as much strength as you need, as much courage is you’ve acquired, and as much clarity as it’s necessary. never tried to plan life. I can tell you …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: 339

I don’t know how I feel about today. Did I have fun yes, do I know who my real friends I don’t know yes, am I happy at the way things turned out yes and no, do I know it is for the best, yes. Sometimes you have to go with the flow and except what happens even if the results in unfavourable. Knowing that there is a bigger plan for you makes all the difference, knowing you’re around good people makes it even easier. And knowing that you’re loved is the beginning of it all. Love your friends love your family love the people around you because you don’t know how long they will be in your life.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 137

It’s no secret I had half a bad day today. What I am learning is, often the bad and doesn’t last as long as you think it well. If you’re able to get through the bad times in whatever way you see fit-The good times will come and they will come quickly. The other thing I found is The sooner you can flip a switch or find happiness again easier it will be to forget about the past. Basically I’m learning not to dwell on things that happen but instead embrace them for what they are. One moment.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 128

Another normal workday come and gone. But you don’t want to hear about that. What I found most interesting was when I got home unpacked all my stuff I found myself getting into bed around 5 o’clock not that I was going to sleep right away, but I spend a lot of time in my room especially in my bed. Why? I can only think that it is because especially when I’m out all day it takes energy out of me, of course and for me I guess I feel like why would I lie on the couch when I could lie on what I would consider a much bigger couch. Lol Open myself thinking is this what everyone does, this doesn’t seem like a life for me. But then, I realize do I care what everyone else does? No not really. Do I want to be like everyone else? No I don’t. Do I find those thoughts sobering? Yes. But then I think about everything I didn’t do today and how I know that …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 100

With it being the one hundredth day of this 365 day challenge I feel like I should do something big and yet this brings up the conversation what really makes a thing big, the amount of pressure we put on ourselves because of it or the impact it makes on our lives. I choose to believe the latter. This means that any and every moment has the potential of being a big moment of teaching you something of making you think of being life-changing. And yes I had one of those moments today, I met someone to do some shopping and this person knows me very well yet has a hard time with the chair situation. Though as they keep seeing me in it it seems to be donning on them that this is the new normal and it’s not going anywhere. This person shopped with me today and didn’t mention the chair at all, and treated me The exact same as they always would my favourite moment by far though was at the end …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 99

Some days are just days you would rather forget. Today was one of those days. Not because of anything I had to do at work or because of anything that happened recently. I think I have just had a not so great few days for different reasons and it all caught up with me today so instead of putting on a happy face and just “dealing with it” I allowed myself to wear comfy, yet professional, clothes to work, I let myself be somewhat antisocial and I let myself feel the feelings when they came at me. Even if that meant in the Entryway of the therapists office. I listened to sad music, or what I like to call music that makes you think, and I blasted some of my favourite songs. You know I’ve cried 1 million tears over this past year yet I would venture to say that none of them, bar one time that I can remember, have been cleansing. Now that I think about it though that’s OK. Because, when it …

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. …
