Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Beginning

Hello Beginning, here I am (again!). Though usually I embrace you as I would my sweet children, today.. I’m a bit salty.

I’ve seen too much of you, lately. I’ve felt frustrated; and, I’ve gotten so little done. I’m clueless as to how this must go.. in order to be successful.

Beginning, I don’t want to go past go without collecting $200 anymore. Monopoly.. my least favorite board game.. Beginning, no offense, but, I don’t want to continue seeing you. I’m ready for a solid foundation.

How do I do that? This whole process has felt forced.. and overwhelming. If this isn’t what I’m meant to do.. please direct me to the correct path. Would that be baby sitting? Would it be nanny work? Would it be teaching something? Please help guide me.

I need an end to this crazy circle of returning to you. Please help!

With much gratitude:

My mind

Feel-Good Friday

Short, simple, and sweet message for you💜

Posted on Painted Teacup

More than anything else in your life, your mind is your biggest asset. It’s ever-changing, adapting, transmitting, redirecting, strengthening, and expanding. Additionally, your mind only understands fight or flight. It’s reasoning. That creates conflict between the mind and heart. It causes confusion.

As you go about your Friday, I hope you allow yourself the release of some thoughts. I hope you live in the moments where, the thoughts that don’t serve you, are let go..in the wind.

Have a great Friday!

With Love and Light,

Blurb of My Day

Self Care all day! I decided this morning, today was going to be for me.

I napped super early, so I could sleep as long as I desired. I had adult “toy time” because a release of hormones does wonders for my body. I took extra time to shower & shave.. wash away all my discouragement and depression.

Later, I picked up my daughters; and, we went for a much needed walk!!

It felt AMAZING!!

Somehow, I feel this was a sign of some kind.

5555 & 77

It has to be..

Anyway, I’m thankful for this inspiration to post.. for my wonderful walk made my heart and lungs so happy.. and for my day of self-care.

How was your day?

Much Love & Light-

Sending Love

Today’s a last.. The last Sunday of March.. A quarter of the year has nearly finished. How are you doing? Have you stayed on track with your resolutions? Do you need a pick-me-up or little push to get back on track? The super cool thing about a goal is, at any moment, you can begin.. Even if it’s “again”.

You got this, ok! You. Got. This!

Give yourself a touch of grace.. You deserve it. Start today, start again. Stay focused. You have all that you need within yourself to accomplish what you set your mind to.

Little Update

Hello Beautiful People 🌿🌸🌹🌱🌷🌼🌺

I’ve not been feeling well, which is why I’ve been absent here.

I apologize, sincerely! My baby was sick last weekend… and I got sick (though I think it’s seasonal change!!) on Wednesday!

On top of that, I’ve been stressing about my car getting fixed. My kid’s school clothes needed washed, dishes needed caught up. I needed to restock groceries and prepare for my baby’s 5th Birthday ( on Tuesday 03/30!!).

Gosh, it’s felt like never ending stress and growing to do list! I also had my older daughter start back to school…

I hope all of you have been well. I hope you’re keeping healthy and positive.

Have a wonderful week and sending good energy!

With Love & Light

Someplace “Normal”

Talking to my therapist this past week, I mentioned that I’d love for something… anything, to feel normal. I thought more about “normal”… and the fact that humans are creatures of habit. We almost need to have a piece of our lives feel familiar, so that we feel “still in control” of ourselves. We need that “what we know” so that we feel “safe” and “certain”… About something.

For months, my life has felt everything but what it was previously. If I sit and think about it long enough, it’d indeed, make me nauseous.

Today, unexpectedly, I was about to capture a piece of that familiar joy… with the perfect temperature, perfect everything. I was so thankful!

Here’s a few photos:

I hope you seek that place that helps you to reconnect with what was before Covid19. I hope you find something that reminds you of the good and incredible wonder in this world. I hope this week, there’s, at least, one moment that captures all your mind, heart, and soul… So that it can tell you that story of restored hope and faith.

Have an incredible week my friends.

I love you.

With Love & Light:

Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone,

I’ve been trying to actually “blog”, for weeks, now. I’ve just felt uninspired and down right gloomy. Thankfully, I feel some of that exciting creative flow rushing back through my veins. It’s an indescribable sensation, the juices of nutritious writing.

I’ve been working through cobwebs of my heart and my home. Things that have sat for far too long, needing a final place to call home. Lots of “stuff”, ended up in the trash. If I no longer use it, after six months or more, it has no purpose in my life. The cobwebs in my personal life have also been cleared out. I have a great family life, and I don’t need to feel obligated to anyone and /or about anything of which I’m truly not responsible. The remaining treasures, I’ve kept, are beautiful. They’ll always have a place in my heart.

Here, in Cleveland, we’ve stayed inside while temperatures have risen into the 90s!! I can’t remember a summer in years being this hot. I don’t mind heat; however, I’ve never been a fan of humidity. The girls enjoy the patio, park, and playgrounds, usually. This heat keeps up, we’ll be at the splakshpad again, soon. It’s a fantastic place for kids to gather, and enjoy one another’s company. It’s a part of Cleveland, I’ve never seen anywhere else.

I’ve spent much of today, cooking for the weekend. Guh, these girls are so picky, and it stresses me out trying to get them to eat right. Anyway, today’s dinner is corn on the comb (my summer obsession this year, as if this happens every summer. 🤦🏼‍♀️ It sure doesn’t!) and parmesan pork chops! Everything smells amazing. Here’s the pork chop recipe.

I didn’t use the mustard and it still smells amazing!!

So other than that, I’m fretting about school uniforms, getting my car sticker for this year and trying to find time for self-care. You know, all the fun stuff. I’m so grateful, my daughter’s father is taking both girls this weekend, so I’ll be alone… Working on my mountain of laundry but at least I’m able to do it. That’s truly the gift, having the means to do it. I get on Pinterest, sometimes, and the images of other parts of our world leave me speechless. (I’m aware this is randomly off topic). There’s real issues, issues and concerns for survival, in other parts of the world. We who have commodity, should be ever so thankful… And not squander it.

That being said, have a wonderful rest of your day.

Good Afternoon, Evening, and Morning.
