He May Be Right Around The Corner

  This is it — my final day of work before I get 9 glorious days of freedom.  NINE days to play!!!!  I so desparately need this time off.   I’m going to savour every single second of my vacation.  Leisure mornings, trail runs, river floats, evening patio beverages with friends, dog walks, sun filled…

Life’s Call

The time is now to wake the dead.  Inhale a breath, come and be free.  Let colours flow through vacant veins to renew a life that once had been.  REMEMBER.  Familiar sensations thought lost and gone.  The time has come, vibrancy flows it’s living song.  Sleep no more, as night has past; if you look, just…

A Hot Summer’s Night

   It’s hot… Scorching hot.  I’m taking refuge under an icy cold summer’s night shower.  The escatacy of the chilled droplets of h20 running down my spine beats any dark rich chocolate my tongue has ever met.  My toes curl at the touch of this life giving liquid.   I tip my head back; I’m…

Writing Myself To Wellness

My post today is a glimpse into my daily journal writing.  My writing helps me evaluate where I’m at, and it also gets me to slow down.  Us anxious people are always in such a big rush to make things happen. _______________________________________________________________ July 28, 2016 Part 1 – How I’m Feeling; What I’m Thinking I’m…

Sunny Side Up Please

I’m having my mood sunny side up with a side o’ bacon today.  I’m sick of scrambled and hash — bring on the hollandaise.  Or should I say holidays?!?  2.5 more days and this little chicky has one whole week off.  Sun, fun, and if I’m lucky some HUNS. This is the first day since…

Silly Girl

  It’s been a pretty rough go these past few months, but today, I just feel silly — so, I’m gonna be silly for the sake of being silly. This is a parody inspired by them naughty boys who tried to break my little heart…all in good fun.  Original source: Willie Nelson’s “To All The Girls…

A Mini Mind Battle Story

  Has the world found me out?  Can they see the chaos inside my head?  Too much static; I can’t hear myself.  The fog is thick; I’m losing hold of reality — here they come… One, two, three worry warriors. Their coming, coming after me.   My shields are down; I’ve nowhere to hide.  I’m visible;…

Catching Up

This past week has been something of a cleansing for me.  First, I’m feeling chemically cleansed because I stopped taking anxiety medication after 10 years of use.  My body is still going through the physical reaction to the change, and now my mind is catching up. I’m definitely feeling a bit more anxious, and I…

Sweat, Sweet Wine

This will be my first post written on my phone, so bare with me on the autocorrect.  “Autocorrect” — I feel there’s a post somewhere in the future about this nifty little software tool. However, this is not that post.  Nope, this post is a slightly wine induced obsession to write. Why I have the…

A NEW Addition!

Just another zapping Friday.  Yep, the brain is still giving me grief over taking away it’s medication, but I’m not giving in.  I’m a bit weary, so I’m glad for a couple of days off.  The best part about this weekend is that I’m getting a new bed. Ohhhhhh… I can feel it now: Soft,…

Lovely People

  We all know there is ugliness in this world.  You see it on T.V.; hear it on the radio, and witness it in the Costco check out lines.  Really people, you will not get through the line any faster by jamming your cart into the back of my knees.  Ugliness is a part of…
