Whew.

It’s been a stressful week at the office. I started therapy a little over a month ago and have picked up some things that help me re-focus when I’m spiraling.

“Even if the whole world turns against you, until you agree, no failure, no crisis, no obscurity can win over you.”
― Abhijit Naskar, Conscience over Nonsense

What about you? Do you have a favorite “calm down, hard reset” trick?

I hope you have an amazing weekend.

Good morning. May today be all you need it to be.

For so many of us, it’s been a Journey. And the Journey continues. We must push on. Ever onward. Together.

“Butterflies are beautiful, but the process of emerging from the chrysalis and spreading your wings can hurt like fucking hell. But still, you will survive the transformation (over and over again) and you will fly. Remember this when it hurts the most. This is the metamorphosis, the going down to liquid, and the rising again. It’s no joke – but damn, it’s one hell of a journey.”
― Jeanette LeBlanc

Good morning.

I am excited to announce I have recently started therapy; for so many reasons. And one thing I’ve learned (I already knew, but never truly practiced) is word choice…

So,today I choose to be happy.

Stop beating myself up for poor choices or accidents.

Stop saying “I should have” or “I could have.” And simply way, “I want…” or “I choose…”

I feel nerdy even typing them, but it’s made for a good week thus far.

Do you have any favorite tricks or tips for turning a day around?

Good morning!

I hope this finds you well.

Today’s quote is about the little things. Sometimes all we have in life to cling to are the smallest things that remind us of happier times, or maybe still bring us comfort.

Or, perhaps, you’re so deep in the dark right now you cannot even find that little thing. I promise you, it’s there. Keep searching.

“Pebbles that bring you joy are better than diamonds that bring you sorrow.”

― Matshona Dhliwayo

If you need to talk, I’m right here.

May you have a wonderful weekend.

Just a reminder to please:

  1. Take care of yourself;
  2. Remind yourself that self-care is okay;
  3. If you can justify the spending and need something for self-care: do not beat yourself up the purchase;
  4. Journaling can be very therapeutic;
  5. If you need someone to talk to – and feel you’ve no other – I’m always right here.

Good morning! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted; eh? Life has been crazy busy and I’m so sorry for neglecting this wee blog.

How do you handle your stressful situations?

“Stress level: extreme. It’s like she was a jar with the lid screwed on too tight, and inside the jar were pickles, angry pickles, and they were fermenting, and about to explode.”

― Fiona Wood, Six Impossible Things

Another week has come and gone. The year is almost half-over. And I just want to know: how are you doing?

If not well, what’s your favorite coping mechanism? What gets you through a tough minute? Hour? Day? Week? Existence?

“In all my years, I’ve learned that life delivers many storms for us to weather. Some will be slow, brooding, quiet beasts, and others will be loud, thunderous, and frightening. But if you’re willing to look close enough, no matter how devastating the storm may be, after the rain you’ll always find new life sprouting in the aftermath.”

― Renée Carlino, After the Rain

Hang in there. Always.

And let us all know how you manage to keep stepping forward, every day.

What sort of victories or road blocks have you faced this week? Are you hanging in there? Need anything?

I hope this finds you well.

And may we all be here to help and lift each other up.

“Sometimes life is hard … so we have to squeeze it, touch it, play with it, and make it soft like a dough! Now it’s soft enough to be shaped in any way we want! Keep moving, touching life, as this will keep it smooth and fun!”
― Karina Fonseca Azevedo

Much love to you.
