As I Lay Sleeping…

As you read this I am sleeping. I am getting my hand fixed. It's a common thing. People like me who work with their hands wear them out. I have put this off a bit longer than I should have, but that's normal for me. I have put my health on the bottom of my … Continue reading As I Lay Sleeping…

Gloomy Day

Today is a dark, cloudy day I know we need the rain. I am just wishing for sunshine. It is easy to feel sad on days with no sun. When someone you know is looking sad say, "Cheer up!" Sometimes humans just can't. Say happy things anyway. On the flip side, you may never know … Continue reading Gloomy Day

Freedom of Speech

Just because you can say a thing doesn't mean you should. Words are like minutes. Once spoken in a moment it is gone forever. You can't suck it back in your mouth. You can treat it like you never spoke it, if no other human heard it. Written words are a bit different. If you … Continue reading Freedom of Speech

Don’t Argue over the Small Stuff

Why is it that most of the arguments in a home between family are started over small insignificant things? Things like whose turn to clean something, why did that person do the thing, or why did they not do the other thing. When you feel the tingle of that urge to criticise a family member … Continue reading Don’t Argue over the Small Stuff

It’s Friday

We have been conditioned from an early age that Friday starts the weekend. Weekends are for freedom. Work weeks are Monday through Friday. When someone says I have a different work schedule and my Monday is a Thursday, the weirdness of their week seems unnatural to us. What would happen if we had no boundaries … Continue reading It’s Friday

Thinking about what might happen and not what is actually happening that creates all sorts of problems in humans. I struggle with worry all the time. My mom says that I was a … Continue reading Worry Worry Worry

Don’t take it Personal

Usually a person's attitude is not because of you. Anger is an emotion that humans use to respond to threat or stress. It can be a real thing or some crazy thing we make up in our mind. Still, we control our own emotions. We react to how people treat us. So, how you respond to … Continue reading Don’t take it Personal

Life is better unscripted.

I love when good things happen unexpectedly. It is often small things that make me happy. A spontaneous hug or kiss from my favorite human can make my day. A letter or card from a friend in the mailbox always makes me smile. Let's not get so caught up in all the chaos of this … Continue reading Life is better unscripted.

Never Again

I have lost so many friends over my lifetime. Sometimes it was my fault and other times life just happened. After the last painful betrayal of my best friend, I made a decision to never put myself in a situation that allows someone to break my heart again. It is human nature to either trust … Continue reading Never Again

Almost my Everything

Who is your person? Every human should have one person. That one who you can count on and trust through everything. I am sorry to say that for most people, it is a risky venture to choose a person. I have chosen wrong a few times. I have trusted people, some for many years, just … Continue reading Almost my Everything
