Minimalism: Understanding Happiness

As an over-thinker and a daydreamer, it doesn't surprise me about myself that I am always looking for a solution. To everything. I fancy myself a do-er, not an idealist, however, and because I've been so stuck in the same life for so long, it makes me crazy to think that progress is not being… Continue reading Minimalism: Understanding Happiness

Here’s the Thing!

Okay lately I've been struggling with words. For a while I thought maybe I didn't have a thing to say, but I think maybe it was just this problem of execution. As it turns out, if there's something we're thinking, even if it's hard to describe, it is highly likely that someone else has found… Continue reading Here’s the Thing!

What I’ve Learned from a Month at the Gym

It's hard to believe 1: that I've been going to the gym almost-daily for a month, and 2: that it's only been a month!

que sera, sera

What will be, will be. Truer words were never spoken, I think. And then there's the other old adage -┬áthe best laid plans of mice and men, often go awry. Perhaps those words are even truer than the first. Or at least equally true. Due to my all too well-cataloged failures to take a hop,… Continue reading que sera, sera

Wine, wine, wine: take three

It seems to me that too long goes between the days that I drink wine. I should drink wine every day. Alas, I'll be going the other direction, as I'm giving up wine and all things mega-sweet starting in the morning. It's part of my new change-my-life initiative. What else is on that list, you… Continue reading Wine, wine, wine: take three

Would You Persist

What would you do if the moon fell out of your sky Would you watch it fall and let it lie Would you pick it up and set it high Would you put it back into the sky? What would you do if the sun was gone from your day Would you let your world… Continue reading Would You Persist

NaBloPoMo?

I'm thinking about trying out this NaBloPoMo thingamabob. Can I write a post a day for all of November? More than anything, I don't want my posts to ever be meaningless. I want to write about what truly matters to me, or what's going on that I really find funny or meaningful. Do I have… Continue reading NaBloPoMo?
