After writing the last post and giving myself “permission” to stop writing and – more importantly – stop stressing about writing, a funny thing happened. Actually two things happened: I started to enjoy life a bit more, and I started to miss writing. Not at first. Nope, I went a solid 14 days (yes, I … More Stepping Out Of The Forest To See The Trees
I feel like I’ve used that saying a lot lately. If you’re a writer (or painter, musician, any type of creative person) you probably have too. Because it’s true. Yesterday I took to Twitter to ask my lovely Tweeples if people actually read blogs anymore. What I really wanted to know was should I blog? … More The Struggle Is Real
I’m at the coffee shop right now. I have all my writing ‘tools’ laid out in from of me and I’m ready to go. So of course I need to write this blog post RIGHT NOW. No, I’m not stalling, YOU ARE! *Errhhemm* Anyway… this week has been madness for me. Carpet Madness! (That’s an … More My Life Is Like Tetris
I’ve been avoiding my blog. Actually I’ve been avoiding a lot of things lately. I suppose it’s because I feel like every time I open my mouth (or my blog) a whole slew of black negativity spews forth and I end up choking on it. It’s not pretty. But today in the shower, where all my … More Analogy Of Life
It’s been a week since I deleted social media off my phone and I can’t tell you what an eye-opener it has been. The first day after The Big Delete I found myself picking up my phone, staring at it blankly and then putting it back down with a confused look upon my face. Checking my phone … More The Pit of Lost Time – Social Media Update
I’ve been known to utter the words I need a social media break! fairly often. Usually I’m so exhausted from keeping up with the copious amounts of negative posts, that I finally reach my breaking point. I swear off social media for an undetermined amount of time only to find myself checking my phone an … More A Much Needed Break
I’m not really sure what I intend to say in this blog post. I suppose it’s just another Thursday Random Raving of sorts. So much is happening and not happening right now that it’s enough to make me scream. I’m in that uncomfortable transitional spot. I’m not a fan. Traveling Europe is done and I’m … More Blah, blah, blah *insert clever title here*
I was supposed to write a blog post today. Actually I was supposed to write a few. I’m so far behind on my blogging (on two sites…yes, I know) that if the blog posts were represented as a line, that line would be a dot. The line is a dot to me. Yes, I just … More Thursday’s Random Ravings
Sometimes you’re scrolling through Facebook, mindlessly looking at people’s updates, and something strikes you as important. You might even say life-changing. On this particular day it was a video shared by Ashton Kutcher and it was all about regret. I watched that video from start to finish…twice. I even made Brandon watch it too. And … More What Are You Regretting?
Last August I became a member of the ZAP!Army. Our modus operandi was to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse; endurance, weaponry, survival etc. Okay, so it was a way to trick ourselves into working out. Geez, spoil all the fun! Anyway, I purchased a cool app called Zombies, Run! and started running training for the apocalypse. … More Remember the Zombies?
