January Goals

It’s a new year, and the resolutions are amazing to read. This year will be my third year of making no resolutions, and just yelling to the winds of old “DO YOUR WORST AND WATCH ME SOAR!!!!” Lol, it sounds like I am challenging the writing gods, and I am.  I should pick my fights…

December In Review

December came and went in a blur of emotions, empty gift bags, and the uncontrollable feeling that I am slowing moving towards the abyss of thinking- vast and unknown.

It’s the week of Christmas, and all through the house, not a single present was bought, not even a mouse. Happy Sunday! Yes, I said it. I have yet to buy Christmas presents, the house only has a Christmas card from our realtor, and I have no idea what we are doing for Christmas dinner….

Sunday Check-In

Hello beautiful people, the weekend is almost gone, so I decided to check in on you to see how your sanity was functioning. How are you? No, seriously, how are you?  Did you ugly-cry this weekend, and why?  Have you had enough water to drink?  Did you eat all your veggies? It’s #selfcareSunday, and that…

Anxiety: Dealing With Failure

Lately, it seems my anxiety has gotten out of control. There is an overwhelming fear that creeps in each time I try to accomplish a goal or try something new. Different thoughts take root in my mind, and they fester, like infected wounds.  What if I fail?  What if I do well, will their expectations…
