I noticed something the other day. The people that I look to for inspiration, the people who I think seem (genuinely) happiest in life - they're not people that have most, or do the most, or have gotten the farthest. I'm drawn to them because they live and act and speak as themselves. They are … Continue reading Authentic Self
As I have previously said - I am great at worrying. Instead of worrying right now, I choose to make a list of all of the things right now that I am grateful and happy for: My family - supportive, loving ,encouraging, always just want happiness for me My friends - old, new, close, far … Continue reading Grateful
I'm a worrier. I can worry about anything and everything. I can worry about things that don't even directly concern me and if I worry too long about something that does - I'll probably make myself lose a couple of hours (or a whole night) worth of sleep over it. My family and close friends … Continue reading Worry
The past couple of weekends have finally brought the full on fall weather. Chilly mornings, clear blue skies, crisp breezes, vibrant leaves, and the ability to wear layers and coats all day outdoors without getting hot. I've been loving it.

It is impossible for me hear the word 'September' without getting that Earth, Wind, & Fire song stuck in my head. You know the one. "Do you remember the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders While chasing the clouds away....." *disco-y upbeat musical notes* I suppose there are worse songs … Continue reading September Means Fall!!…….Right?
I was going to start writing today about this annoying, torn, feeling I constantly have going on in my brain. But it's Friday. I don't want to deep dive into anything serious today. The sun is out, company is coming for the weekend, it's a laid back day.....I want to write about something fun that … Continue reading Trader Joe’s Post
What makes you happy? I don't know if it's because it's Friday, or because it's summer, or because it's warm and sunny outside - but I am in a pretty good mood. And that got me thinking about the small, normal, everyday things that make me happy: The first, warm, spring day The first cool, … Continue reading Happy
