Let’s Talk About Therapy

As I recently stated, I started going to therapy. My decision to be open about going to therapy isn’t a ploy to gain concern of my well-being, but to hopefully help others understand that you don’t have to be broken to be in therapy. We will go to a doctor for anything from something acute…

G. R. A. T. E. F. U. L.

Hello everybody! I have a late night, nearing the end of the week, follow up to my previous post. If you read it, you know there are some things I’ve concluded I need to work on. A few main ones are having faith, being grateful, and being myself. I’ve been playing with something in my…

Self

My family has a yearly tradition to go to the beach on New Year’s Day. A large part of this tradition involves writing in the sand things we want to release from the previous year and things we’d like to bring in to the new year. We choose our own little section of the shore,…

Comfort Zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” -Neale Donald Walsch **WARNING: Picture Overload Ahead** The year was 2014. I went camping for the first time in years, went back to school, started eating pizza with sauce, rode a horse, which I hadn’t done in 10 years, got a gym membership and went regularly,…

Comparison and Competition

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” -Theodore Roosevelt I hate to say it, but insecurity reared its ugly head again the other day. I’ve gotten better at detecting it and stopping it at the source (comparison), but unfortunately, I’m not perfect and not immune to it weaseling its way in to my mind from time…

Gratitude & Grappling with Discontentment

I’ve been finding it interesting lately how I’ll have a topic in mind to write about, but when I go to type it up, it doesn’t flow. I’ll wait a few days or more and something will happen that puts it all together. I love how that works! Now to get on with it… I…

Find, Define, Identify

What is the difference between a person finding themselves and a person defining themselves? Some coworkers and I were discussing this today without coming to much of a conclusion. When I was trying to “find myself”, I figured if I could define myself that would give me a clear enough direction. I noticed, however, that…

Goals: 26

Things have been busy lately and it’s made me think about the things I miss having the time to do most. Writing, working on projects, exercising, getting my hands dirty working in the yard, doing puzzles, dancing around, cooking or baking. I’d even add reading to that list, though, if I had all of the…

Grow 🌱

Summer is just around the corner and I’m finally getting around to writing a post I had in mind for springtime. I was going to take the opportunity to talk about my love for spring, how excited I was to work in my garden, and how the sweet sounds of baseball would be back. Since…
