Reflection

Ugh. I feel like I have so much to tell you, so much to get out of me, & no time to do it. I need to prioritize better. I'm sure my next few posts will seem scattered but at least you'll know why. 😉 So in no particular order, here's the first of many: Shana …

Backpedaling

Such a cute movie! Hey stranger - So Job #1 has been crazy busy (seasonal work & all) so I haven't had time to actually talk to you & get you caught up on what's going on with me. I still have my list of several topics to cover with you. It's funny because I'll …

Saying goodbye

I've been thinking lately about people from my past. Old friends who've moved away or we've naturally drifted apart after graduation or when jobs end. Toxic "friends" I had to keep away for my own health (& my therapist agrees). Everything from big blow-outs over a significant other to walking away with no response. What …

More than enough

This past Shabbat was Parashat Emor, which is a section of Leviticus about different laws for Shabbat, holidays, & so forth. Rabbi S focused on the section of harvesting & it's still with me several days later. Leviticus states when you harvest your grains, leave the outside edges alone for the poor to have. Also, whatever …

Shabbat Shalom

I'm sitting here thinking about what to talk about when I realized, "Wow. I had a really good day today." I started my day by going to Temple. Today kicks off Pesach/Passover. Service was lovely, as usual, but it was really cool to be there for a holiday & see how they celebrate it. We …

April Goals

Aww! Bunny! The 58 inches (seriously) of snow is finally gone & green grass is starting to grow! Yay! Spring! This past winter was a bitch & a half. I'm glad it's done. Today is a typical April day here in the Midwest - a little cooler, rainy, & I'm just blissed out. I love …

OCD is a bitch

My mental illness is not a party joke. "OMG, I like things so clean! It's my OCD showing!" Really, bitch? So you know what it's like to be tortured with your thoughts that never fucking shut off? And how they get louder & louder until you deal with them? And how you can't rest because …

February Goals

Ahh, February. I'm not usually a fan of this month because I'm over the cold by now. Thankfully, it's a shorter month. And because of that, my overall focus is to maintain. – A snapshot – SPIRITUAL:  7 → 7 MENTAL: 8 → 8 PHYSICAL: 6 → 6 SOCIAL: 9 → 9 CAREER: 7 → 7 …

Ghosts of the past

There are some parts of my life that I want to leave in the past. People who've hurt me, jobs who pressured me into doing something illegal, places I felt unsafe, whatever. We all have dark chapters in our lives. And it's those chapters I want to slam shut & then padlock. Never again, right? …
