Why is it…
Tea tastes better out of the beautiful china cup my mom got me? It’s been cooler over the past two days and I felt like sipping some cinnamon orange tea while I worked. So comforting! Self-help tip of the day: Use the good stuff! Don’t leave it in a cupboard or behind glass to collectContinue reading "Why is it…"
The Art of Flaneuring – End of an Era
It’s funny how things come together in my head. As I was perusing through The Art of Flaneuring by Erika Owen, I came across a section on using what you have to get where you’re going. Where you’re going will always be flaneuring, at least as we discuss this book. What you have may differ.Continue reading "The Art of Flaneuring – End of an Era"
$180 an hour – and worth every penny!
I went to see a new psychologist today. I wasn’t gonna… but I am so glad I did! See, my former therapist was unavailable, and I reasoned that perhaps therapy was not meant to be! But, ya know… after our email exchange a few months ago… I decided that I *needed* to find someone. So,Continue reading "$180 an hour – and worth every penny!"
Reckoning: Soul Exhaustion
The featured photo is me… forty-two years ago. The top I’m wearing is maternity. First child. Early days of adulthood. My whole life, as they say, ahead of me. I knew my 65th birthday would be pivotal but I didn’t know I’d be plunged into an exhaustion so pervasive it has *literally* stopped me inContinue reading "Reckoning: Soul Exhaustion"
Picture of the Day – “Smiling Faces”
I was driving home from the market today when I spotted these beauties, so I stopped to snap a pic. As I was getting ready for bed tonight, I remembered that I’d taken the shot and came to write about it… So, here I am. But something is nudging me in a different direction. IContinue reading "Picture of the Day – “Smiling Faces”"

Recovery from Narcissistic Abuse, Gaslighting, Codependency and Complex PTSD – Break Free!
It’s taken me three weeks to read Recovery from Narcissistic Abuse, Gaslighting, Codependency and Complex PTSD by Linda Hill. The reason is on the cover… It’s four books in one! It also flies in the face of something I mentioned in my review about the Lipedema book from a couple of weeks ago. That oneContinue reading "Recovery from Narcissistic Abuse, Gaslighting, Codependency and Complex PTSD – Break Free!"
Life Update – It’s in the Stars
I wanted to come and write about what this year has taught me about myself. I wanted to share about some (can you believe it? additional!!) recent issues I’ve had in a year that has been – physically speaking – beyond anything I have encountered up until now. But then, I was reminded by someoneContinue reading "Life Update – It’s in the Stars"
This is Your Destiny -Let Me Be Honest
If the book, “This is Your Destiny” by Aliza Kelly sounds familiar, it’s because I did a shout-out on another post HERE. I mentioned a couple of chapters that inspired me and said I’d be back with a post dedicated to just the book. And, here I am! The book’s subtitle (Using Astrology to Manifest YourContinue reading "This is Your Destiny -Let Me Be Honest"
World’s Most Comprehensive Guide to Eliminate Lipedema -Bumpy Road
When I first began this blog, I knew I’d have some clunker books. Not everyone can be a great author, nor does every story captivate its readers. Over the last 5+ years, there have been a few. Those posts are difficult to write because I never want to diss anyone’s art… and writing IS art!Continue reading "World’s Most Comprehensive Guide to Eliminate Lipedema -Bumpy Road"
