Shame on you, not-knower!

I have toiled with the idea of becoming a professional of just about every field I have been exposed to. I hear about something cool and spend way too much time writing my story in the future…as a preparation for future interviews or documentary films 😉 about my great success. My boyfriend and I wereContinue reading “Shame on you, not-knower!”

This might be it.

At times, life feels devoid of purpose…a purpose-less life. I have heard people who recover from various life crisis, such as quitting a corporate job or selling a business, call it a purpose problem. A purpose problem seems to be there when you are crazy successful and you lose your way. Then, your story canContinue reading “This might be it.”

Day 50: That is a wrap?

Wow! Day 50 of #my500words….here we are. I don’t know if I want this challenge to end. While I have found it exhausting on busy days, it has been so enriching! It has forced me to put my crazy thoughts onto a “page”. And, this alone has been therapeutic…even when I wasn’t saying all thatContinue reading “Day 50: That is a wrap?”

Day 47: Control and Love

Love and control…control and love. Two sides of the same coin? Or, are they just confused. Parents and children…children and parents. A confusing relationship that is so rich but is often fraught with frustration. Why is that? And, why do we try to control the lives of those we love the most. Is it fear?Continue reading “Day 47: Control and Love”

Day 43: A More Graceful Passion

I am not feeling much inspiration to write today. I think when I get to the 50 day mark, I will change my schedule to 5 days/ week or perhaps just allow myself some time off. Maybe I need a goal with the writing. I enjoy it because it helps me think things through. IContinue reading “Day 43: A More Graceful Passion”

Day 42: Seeking Truth

Today I was thinking about a conversation I had with a random date like 3 years ago. It was pretty clear that we weren’t going to be a thing, but we were friendly and enjoying each other’s company. We just weren’t a good match, and we knew it. But, we sat in a very swankyContinue reading “Day 42: Seeking Truth”

Day 40: Juuuuust Breatheeeeee

Today I was introduced to the term “resonant breathing” because I joined a yoga challenge. The yoga challenge sent an email reminding us that it is the first day of the challenge and included an advertisement for a breathing app and a blurb about resonant breathing. It was cool to learn about resonant breathing, andContinue reading “Day 40: Juuuuust Breatheeeeee”

Day 35: Why do I look outside?

Why do I look outside when everything I need is within? Why do I want someone else to validate my idea before I commit? Why? Is this human? Is this normal? Is this madness? Potentially yes to all of these questions. An important lesson that I keep having to learn over and over again isContinue reading “Day 35: Why do I look outside?”

Day 33: Peace & Stillness> Desperation

Each day that I write, I find myself negating something that I wrote the previous day. That isn’t that cool! But, I find myself here today. So, a few posts ago, I said I was going to manifest pink elephants or a yellow Volkswagen. I was trying to manipulate the universe into telling me aContinue reading “Day 33: Peace & Stillness> Desperation”

Day 32: A new day and a new challenge

It is day 32, which means that I have accomplished my initial goal of writing 500 words a day for 31 days. I did it! It also means that I cultivated a habit during those 30 days and am now continuing to write. I have extended the goal from 31 days to 50 days. So,Continue reading “Day 32: A new day and a new challenge”
