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 26: Alignment, Huh?

Alignment. It has a word I have been hearing about a lot lately in my search for meaning…or rather my search to get more of what I “want” out of my life. Dictionary.com defines it has “arrangement in a straight line, or in correct or appropriate relative positions” or “a position of agreement or alliance.”Continue reading “Day 26: Alignment, Huh?”

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 17: Books, America, Yeah- Keep Reading!

It is day 17 of #my500words, and I am in a slump. I have a lot happening in my brain these days, but my day to day feels uneventful. I worked from my apartment all day every day last week and found the experience to be restorative mostly. I welcomed the arrival of my boyfriendContinue reading “Day 17: Books, America, Yeah- Keep Reading!”

Day 16: Effort Without Validation

I have been thinking a great deal about validation and its connection with effort level. I often find it so simple to justify inadequate effort due to a lack of validation. What does validation do for us that we are willing to work or not work on its behalf? Merriam-Webster dictionary defines validity as theContinue reading “Day 16: Effort Without Validation”

Day 15: The Pain of Possibility

I have been waking up for the past 15 years or so in the middle of the night in a panic. It doesn’t happen all the time or even often anymore, but it happens. When I was about 14 or 15, I hit some kind of awareness threshold. Thank you very much, marijuana. All ofContinue reading “Day 15: The Pain of Possibility”

Day 14: Writing Outline? Just kidding!

Well, I was all set and primed to start my outline goal today…But, there is a gigantic problem. Actually, there are two problems, one of which is gigantic. The first problem, the small one, is that I don’t think I can attach an outline document here as though I were attaching a document to anContinue reading “Day 14: Writing Outline? Just kidding!”

Day 13: Do You Plan Your Posts?

Today, I spent a lot of time thinking about my goals, or rather my big, audacious dreams. I am maniacal about my personal information upload and try to cram most moments into brain updates of some kind. Today, I did a lot of that. One podcast I used to accomplish this was by The LifeContinue reading “Day 13: Do You Plan Your Posts?”

Day 12: Changing A Bad Habit

I have a few bad habits, but I have one very terrible and embarrassing one… one that I really should have outgrown by now. I haven’t…until today. I am a picker. I have large pores but pretty good skin. I spend an inordinate amount of time finding things wrong with the skin all over myContinue reading “Day 12: Changing A Bad Habit”

Day 11: Pumpkin Bread is a Food Group

I have been watching The Great British Baking Show quite a bit lately, and it has me thinking about cakes and pastries wayyyy more than I should be. Every challenge, I say out loud, “I would eat that right now. I want that!” It hasn’t been good for my bikini bod goals this spring. ThereContinue reading “Day 11: Pumpkin Bread is a Food Group”
