Changes

You are not who you were yesterday. You are who you want to be today. Who will you be? Who do you want to be? Breathe and be.  

Welcome to the (Green) Machine

When’s the last time you experienced real, pure, unadulterated joy? Prior to this past Monday night, I’d have been hard-pressed to answer that question. But something happened to me that night, and it was spectacular. Better than anything I’d experienced in a long, long time. Let me start at the beginning. About six weeks ago,…

Let’s Get Physical

You might want to stand up when you read this. Sitting is killing us. It’s killing you and it’s killing me. Studies show that the average American is sitting down for 13 to 15 hours every day. And all that sitting is contributing to an uptick in chronic diseases and decreased bone density (broken hip,…

#Resist

Today is Memorial Day, and while it’s nice to have this time to gather with family and friends and eat hot dogs and burgers, it’s important to remember why this day is recognized. That’s my cousin Josh in the photo above. He’s an active-duty pilot in the Air Force. The smaller photo to the left…

That Summer High

  This song is the soundtrack for my day. It just completely and totally captures my mood this morning. School is out and this is the first Sunday morning in over a year when I’ve felt relaxed and calm. No chore list to complete. No stress. No feeling of impending doom. It’s all lightness, brightness,…

#Truth

A guy I work with has this bumper sticker on his car. It doesn’t get more real than this. We expend a lot of time and energy fighting with one another because of differences of religion, color of skin, political ideologies. But when it comes right down to it, we are all the same. We…

Eff You, Mark Wahlberg

This is a much different post than what I’d planned as my first of the new year. For the most part, I’m really digging 2017. And it seems to be digging me as well – yay! If I had to come up with one complaint, though, it would be the release of the latest Mark…

Writerz Blok. I haz it.

Writer’s block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce a work for years. (Wikipedia) I haven’t been able to write a single word…

Who you gonna call?

I have been ghosted, y’all. Yeah, you read that right — I am a grown-ass woman and I have been ghosted. By another grown-ass woman. Can you even believe it? Some of you might be asking, “What’s ghosting? Is that when you take a picture of that little ghost icon and start exchanging photos with someone?”…

What a long, strange trip it’s been

T-minus seven hours and counting. That’s when you’ll find me sitting on the couch — bowl of popcorn in one hand, glass of wine in the other — devouring the final episode of Stranger Things. And I cannot wait. I haven’t been this excited for an episode of a TV show since they brought Buffy…
