A wonderful reader suggested that I make my Trapped Souls post into a series once I remembered what the hell I wanted to write about. Well, I still don't remember exactly what prompted me to save the title but when I saved 'Never a Purpose or Reason' I knew I needed to do at least…Read more Trapped Souls – Pt. 2 Never a Purpose or Reason
I've always struggled with how to use social media. On the one hand, I want to share things that happen to me, my photos, and things I find funny, interesting, or important but on the other I don't want to waste my time. Perhaps I'm alone here but I believe that most people don't really…Read more How Do You Use Social Media?
Phew, what a week! I had a checkup with my doctor and a visit from a family member. It made me realize how uneventful my life has become. And how grateful I am that it has become that way. Of course, it got the gears working and now I am trying my best not to…Read more Trigger Days
I finally dropped off my ceramic gnomes to get fired at Busy Bee. It's been over a 2 month long process to finish this project and it wasn't even my idea. It was a gift for my birthday a few months ago. So I've had these gnomes sitting on my shelf in various stages of…Read more That’s Life

And if you happen to hate gnomes then I'm sure you have something you love that maybe others may not get. Something that makes you…Read more Set Your Inner Child Free!
Anyone else at a loss when it comes to finding the perfect gift for someone? We've all heard that hooey about 'it's the thought that counts'. Well, I suppose there are some people out there who know how to give and receive gifts with grace but I don't know if I've met any. I know…Read more Do You Give the Gift of Anxiety?
Anxiety has reached a new level. Even for those who try not to pay attention to things and circumstances out of their control. It has become impossible to ignore the nastiness, the ugliness of this world. I took this picture while we were walking in the park last week. To be able to walk outside…Read more Living in Anxiety Bubbles
I had a bit of a melt down the other day. R.J., my husband, just took it in stride. He's the one who's been working 12 to 14 hours a day and he let me have my moment. I'm sure he was confused because it was somewhat unexpected - for him, not me. It was…Read more NGTS – Pt. 59
Have you ever been struggling with something and seem to be getting a handle on it only to have it come back around and smack you up side the head? Yeah, that just happened to me. I mean the very next day after I wrote my post Candles in the Dark. I had a pretty…Read more Your Own Personal Best
