Learning to live with impermanence

Hello, my friends!  The roller coaster of life has taken me away from blogging as of late, but I sure miss being here on WordPress amongst good peeps and fellow writers.  I’m beginning to feel rather rusty as a blogger, but when I found myself musing about the impermanence of life this morning...I thought I...

Mid-life crisis?

I had a big, scary realization today.  It makes me feel sick inside.  But I need to get this out... I need to be authentic and share the dark feelings that I am having.  I am no one.   I haven’t done anything of significance with my life.  I have a few accomplishments, achievements...but they...

A Year of Zen

Hello, my friends~ Often, when I want to engage in reflective writing, I’ll use a prompt from a guided journal.  This prompt is from A Year of Zen: A 52-Week Guided Journal (Treace, 2020).  I thought I might share this journal entry as it reflects something we could all use a little more of in...

Perspective- it’s a bear!

No two people share the same fingerprints, and they say that no two tigers have the exact same stripe pattern.  Perception is similar in that it is uniquely our own experience.  Our perception is shaped by sensory input (how we see, smell, hear, process touch, taste), personality, experiences, proximity, feelings in a given moment, etc. ...

Exploring Envy

I am currently reading Brené Brown’s Atlas of the Heart, a fabulous book recommended by fellow blogger, Wynn Leon (if you aren’t following her blog, you should do so immediately! 😊).  This book explores how we experience emotion.  As I was reading the second chapter, titled Places We Go When We Compare, I was schooled...

Lunch date, anyone?

After my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 in December, I emailed my (former) therapist and asked if we could resume sessions.  In my email, I explained what to her what was going on, and how my husband was taken by ambulance to the hospital on Christmas Eve.  She immediately contacted me, and we set...

Dancing my way to freedom!

Hi, I am Grace, and I am a compulsive overeater. It is getting easier and easier to say that statement and not feel a ton of shame around it.  This is a strong signal to me that I am learning to love myself, flaws and all.  I can be a compulsive overeater and still be... Continue Reading →

It’s a new day

The last few days have been really hard.  My husband is experiencing new symptoms, including a constant low-grade fever, which has him feeling very crummy.  His specialist made time to see us right away (I am grateful to her for this ❤ ) and ran a whole slew of new diagnostics. As he faces yet... Continue Reading →

Anxiety… ugh!

Recently, the book Atlas of the Heart, written by Brené Brown was put in my path.  One of my fellow bloggers, Wynne Leon (thank you, Wynne! 😊), wrote about this book and that same day, a gal in my Dharma Recovery meeting mentioned it as a helpful way to learn more about human emotion.  Being...
