Yeah, so I haven’t blogged in like…I don’t know, almost two months, maybe? I was busy, but there wasn’t a lot going on, so it seemed kind of pointless to keep repeating: I worked, I did homework, I read, blah blah blah. So I stopped. But I’m trying to pick it back up again. Hopefully,… Continue reading update…

…without words…

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking out Loud. Saying goodbye is on my mind. But, not an actual goodbye. Just…mentally saying goodbye to a 3+year relationship, and someone whom I care very much about. Saying goodbye is hard enough, but not even getting to tell someone what you’re thinking or feeling… Continue reading …without words…

week in review: chance of sunshine slim

I was going to link-up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets yesterday…except WordPress went wonky, and I never got a post notification, and by the time I got home from my 13-hour-workday, I could barely form (mental) sentences, much less coherent paragraphs. So. (I think all WordPress issues are now resolved.) I didn’t… Continue reading week in review: chance of sunshine slim

week in review? nah. resolutions.

So, I haven’t made any New Year’s Resolutions in like 3 years. Initially, because my depression was bad at New Year’s (although  I have successfully kept my unspoken vow to NEVER contact the ex–and cause of the depression–ever again), then, when I was just over that, I had the stroke and life was pretty overwhelming… Continue reading week in review? nah. resolutions.

what’s been on my mind: why are people jerks*?

*(That’s not actually the name I want to use, but I’m really trying to clean up my language.) But seriously, if you’ve been dating someone for almost a year, how do you suddenly decide that you’re too busy to respond to their texts or phone calls (forget actually seeing them), and when you do finally… Continue reading what’s been on my mind: why are people jerks*?

freedom and forgiveness

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a Freedom Ministry event I attended, and what my takeaways were. I’m not absolutely positive I can put this into words adequately, but I’m going to try, because this event made a huge difference for me. I started this blog a while back because I was struggling… Continue reading freedom and forgiveness

fat is a security blanket

There’s been a lot going on lately.  I’m dealing with some emotional issues related to the ex that I (might) feel like talking about soon.  For now, here’s the gist of conversations I’ve had recently with Super Mom and The Saint…. *** Why are we always trying to lose weight?  Obviously, because we need to. … Continue reading fat is a security blanket

this is what personal growth looks like

Mental shifts are funny things. Sometimes, it takes something major to set them off: a medical problem, losing someone you care about, or another type of personal disaster. Sometimes, it doesn’t take anything to set them off. They just happen, and you’re not always aware of them until after they’ve happened. Sometimes, if you’re lucky,… Continue reading this is what personal growth looks like
