One More Thing…

Let me just do this one last thing, then I can… If you’re anything like me, you have either said–or more likely thought–the above line, followed by words like “Rest” or “Do that thing I really enjoy.” Not just this month, or even this week, but sometime within the last 24 hours. We’re all busy …

What a Mess

I can’t even remember what it was that I was originally going to post about this week. The events of the past few days have driven it from my head, and filled that space near to bursting. I don’t have the spoons for anything more than that. Thanks for reading. Be safe out there.┬áBe Excellent …

Short and Sweet

Happy Sunday (or whenever you’re reading this) Friends. This week’s post needs to be a short one. Not because I’m under any kind of Time constraint, though. It’s just that there’s a beautiful day outside my window and I need to step away from the world for a while and, go out into it. So …

Thanking Past Me

I ran across this idea from a Twitter post from Alethia Kontis and it’s all about showing gratitude toward your past self.

One Moment Please…

Well it sure has been a week, hasn’t it? I hope you’re all safe and well on your way to adjusting to the new normal. There’s been quite a bit of shake-up around the world lately and it’s had an effect on all our lives. Myself, I’m working remotely until the turn of the month …
