#90 Being Heard

I read somewhere, or maybe I heard it? It was something along the lines of being heard is how we heal. I agree with that. When I have a problem or issue or need help and have another person to talk to about it and they listen actively, I feel heard. Next I start to…

#89 Being There

Sometimes life can deal disappointment. Something doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped it would. This happens to the our loved ones sometimes too of course. Nobody is immune. It’s hard to see someone you love hurt or sad or feeling rejected. You wish you caould take all the feelings away for them and make…

#88 Cozy

I’m writing from my bed 🙂 It’s comfy and cozy. The darkness around me is comforting and my mind finally feels peaceful and I feel calm. It’s a nice feeling. Today I forgot myself. More than once. Forgot that I’m lucky for so many things. Lucky to still be here. To be able to hug…

#87 Too many things.

Every time I feel like I have achieved goals, say for instance, I finished that writing project, and that now I have time to breathe and chill out, something else happens. I get an email saying we have a house inspection coming up. We rent at the moment and it’s fine. However, I am fed…

#86 Escape.

Escape can mean different things to different people. It doesn’t have to mean you don’t love where you are, although for some I guess getting away from where they are is the attractive part of the whole idea. Maybe escape is the wrong word. Maybe reprieve is an improvement? Space to breathe and collect yourself…

#85 Disappearing Days.

Not sure what is going on but it feels like time is moving more swiftly. Is it the change in weather? Is there an actual scientific reason behind this? Are the days actually getting shorter?As in the sun is coming up later and going down earlier? Technically that is an incorrect description because the sun…

#84 Donuts are not Type 2 Friendly…

Well of course there not 😉 For better or worse that decadent cinnamon donut passed my lips anyway. Did I feel any semblance of guilt? Don’t be ridicuous. I felt quite jubilant actually. So I’m feeling happier today and I’m grateful for that. It’s not directly connected to the donut consumption 😉 Mama has spent…

#83 Phone a Friend

You know how you have that friend, who just somehow knows to call you on the very day you need to talk to someone? Well that happened to me this morning. It was really good to just listen to what she had to say and be taken away from myself for a little bit. Funny…

#82 On A Downer.

Friday night. I haven’t been feeling great emotionally. I know that we can’t be happy all of the time, and as human beings, we experience a range of other emotions. So my aim for the weekend is to accept my feelings and lift myself up. How you may well ask. I intend to do lots…

#81 Noise

Some days there is just too much noise in my head. Too many thoughts all colliding at the same time. It makes it dificult to focus on any one thing. My antidote. Distraction. I woke up very late and felt pretty ordinary. I knew from the outset that I just needed to hang out in…
