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 45: A garden fit for gods, but no flowers!

My mom is in town this weekend, so my writing today comes to you early in the morning before she wakes up. I am suffering from a stiff neck, which I am attributing to tension while driving up and down the state yesterday. We went to visit the Garden of the Gods near Colorado Springs.Continue reading “Day 45: A garden fit for gods, but no flowers!”

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 41: Just as I am

Today has me thinking a lot about motivation, ambition, friendships, and the ever present wonder if I will find my life’s purpose. No pressure…just find your passion, fix your relationships, examine the fulfillment of your daily life, and whether you actually like living in a cold mountain town (mostly cold). Just figure it out, OK?Continue reading “Day 41: Just as I am”

Day 37: Walking into Transcendence

I am doing well today. I wasn’t always doing well, but I just got home from a great walk, a way that allowed me and my boyfriend to transcend. What is transcendence? Transcendence is, according to dictionary.com, existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level. So, how did my walk allow me to transcend.Continue reading “Day 37: Walking into Transcendence”

Day 36: Why am I enjoying this process so much?

I have to admit…I love writing my500words everyday…like LOVE. I look forward to it. Why is that? I don’t really have readers. I don’t really have a big, grand goal related to this. This functions as a personal journal, albeit impersonal in details, that I post for the world to see. What is it aboutContinue reading “Day 36: Why am I enjoying this process so much?”

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 31: How to know what you want

This morning, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I ate a lot of crackers and snacks very late at night, felt dehydrated before sleeping, and woke up earlier than I would have preferred. I have felt kind of crabby ever since. Now, I have an offer to do something that IContinue reading “Day 31: How to know what you want”

Day 24: Last Minute Posts

Today I am posting at the very end of my day. I did not prioritize my 500 words, and I am regretting it so much! Ah, cest la vie. But, here I am…doing it at 9:15 PM after a long day (I am a grandmother). Last night, I had too much fun, which left meContinue reading “Day 24: Last Minute Posts”

Day 23: Oprah Says Surrender

My posts for the past few days have centered around surrender, particularly in regards to my professional path. Since having started to post about this, I am realizing (again) how important the concept and the action of surrender is. In the past few months, I have started listening to Oprah’s podcasts. While I haven’t beenContinue reading “Day 23: Oprah Says Surrender”
