and I am a material girl!
Let me state that I am not a hoarder, but I will admit that I have my things, and I am attached to them. I will also admit, this once, that I know I get defensive when my husband starts talking to me about getting rid of my things. Continue reading
does not always mean a new start.
New Years’ resolutions are made and broken every year. Some people are able to keep theirs, but those people were actually ready for the changes they were implementing, I do not believe it has anything to do with the date. I also do not believe that just saying you are going to do something is what it takes to motivate you to actually do it. You have to have something in your life that is making you uncomfortable enough to stick with it, or at least I do. Continue reading
have we actually passed it?
The other day I watched a documentary called Cowspiracy, and although I found it to be very informative, the information was not necessarily news to me. Well, the statistics were a bit shocking, as I have not looked into this subject in several years, but I’ve known that the issues are more important than a lot of people seem to think, and that our food sources are a much bigger contributor towards the climate issues than any of the major agencies have been stating, because, after all, no one wants to anger the big industries, e.g. beef. As Frank Herbert wrote in his novel, Dune, “He who controls the Spice, controls the universe!“, and let’s face it, the companies that have the most money, control a lot more than you may be aware of. However, this is not a post about corruption in politics, or how much our system needs an overhaul, this is about my thoughts on this documentary. Continue reading
Reality is in the mind of the observer
Watching Parking Wars left me dumbfounded, because I could not comprehend why so many people were getting so angry with the Parking Authority Officer for giving them a parking ticket. The officer was simply doing their job, and the driver was clearly in the wrong the majority of the time. Yes, the officers did/do make mistakes, they are, after all, human. However, the majority of the time, they were/are spot-on. Continue reading
There are times, when I look in the mirror, that I do not recognize myself. There is a picture in my mind, and it doesn’t always match reality. Time seems to pass at lightening speed; I mean, didn’t we just celebrated Christmas a week or so ago? Look at the calendar, June is half way over*! Continue reading
You don’t get older, you get better
Birthday Week officially begins today; tomorrow starts a month long celebration (there are tons of June birthdays in our group). Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week, are all days I celebrate the births of people I know and love. Friday is not only the birthday of one of my dear friends, it is mine as well. Continue reading
I was diagnosed with ADHD the year I turned 40. Now, this is not the worst news I’ve ever received, but it was one that brought on a spectrum of emotions. Two of which were relief, and anger. I was relieved, because it really explained a lot about some of the issues I’ve had for as long as I can remember. However, there was anger, from years of hearing that I was being rude because I wasn’t paying attention, or the countless number of times I got in trouble for wiggling in my seat, or ‘zoning out’ during a conversation. I eventually worked through the emotions, and learned to embraced this part of me. Continue reading
