NOTE TO SELF...

NOTE TO SELF... Dear Self, I know you struggle and fight to stay afloat sometimes, but in case I don't tell you enough, you're amazing and beautiful. Thank you for being so strong, open and down-to-earth. The world sees you even when you think they don't and you feel invisible. I appreciate your heart and your stubbornness...your willingness to love, even after having been hurt so many times...it is admirable. I'm so proud to know that you've grown to acknowledge your worth. I'm so grateful to be you.

BEING STUCK IN A RUT CAN LITERALLY END YOUR LIFE...

I recently discovered an article at About.com entitled, “Hurdles to Wellness:Childhood Imprinting,” which is posted below...this article addresses beliefs I have had my entire life...that what you feel emotionally and spiritually can be 100% of what you feel physically and, if negative, will manifest itself in your body in negative ways: "Many people stay in jobs or relationships where they are unhappy out of primal fears of survival. For these individuals it is nearly impossible to trust that they will be taken care of and that there may very well be a better opportunity around the corner. Learning to TRUST and SURRENDER are big hurdles to overcome. Although they feel underpaid or are grossly unsatisfied with employment, the threat of an unknown future keeps them frozen in the status quo. When we become fear-frozen in our putrid situations it should be no surprise when sickness surfaces. Ill-nurturing environments will affect our health and well-being. Sickness and pain in

EVERYBODY STUMBLES...

You know how, when you're walking along in public and you stumble over something small or trip over your own feet, you quickly look around to see if anyone was looking? Yeah, we've all been there...right? Well that's the same feeling you can get when you are working toward your personal goals and people catch you stumbling. You tend to look around and see who, in your circle of friends and family, was looking. It can deter you from moving forward...if you let it. We all stumble...that is a huge part of life. If we were getting it right all the time, day in and day out, there would be no point...we would cease to exist. The trick is not to let it deter you from reaching your goals. We all have goals and/or dreams and fantasies...things we wish would happen in our lives and that is the journey we are on every single day...even in the little ways that we take for granted or barely notice. But you have to be true to yourself and let no one get in your way or stop you from

3 STEPS TO INNER PEACE...

When I was in my late teens, already driving in fact, I discovered Al-anon. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is a branch of the twelve-step program, i.e. Alcoholics Anonymous, et. al. A meeting for people in families or relationships in which their loved ones are abusing alcohol or drugs. It was in my first meeting that I learned the Serenity Prayer: God, grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, COURAGE to change the things I can and the WISDOM to know the difference. I came to know these as the three things that could bring me inner peace in a New-York-minute.  There are times in my life when things are going so smoothly that I forget that, as someone born with chemical depression, I have to practice my coping skills every day to keep it at bay or I start to lose them, and lately I had gone through a patch like that. This past weekend however, I was again reminded of the serenity prayer, and everything good and positive snapped right back into place. H

CAN YOU SPELL THAT PLEASE...

As someone who really loves to write and appreciates grammar, it amuses me so much when I see signs that either fail to get their point across or are just plain spelled wrong. I also love the pictures people post of their texts that went awry...stupid auto-correct...lol. I wanted to post these to bring a smile to your face as we can all relate to these. Here's your sign (yes, I totally "borrowed" that line...lol): These are the texts I found on Huffington Post.com : 1   Don’t call your mother an idiot. Damn You Autocorrect 2   Yep, last night got preeeetty wild. Damn You Autocorrect 3   This isn’t the Wifey McLovemuffin I married. Damn You Autocorrect 4   Some people will stop at NOTHING to make a sale. Damn You Autocorrect 5   Sometimes autocorrect can be almost poetic.
