The Right Direction

* NaBloPoMo – Day 5 * I’ve mentioned before that this is the year I plan to get a Tattoo. I’m starting to run out of days in this year, so I need to get my shit together and get on this. I’m thinking at this point it may be what I ask for for Christmas. Although, I’m not exactly…

Previous Life

So, anyone who reads this blog, should know I’ve had others before it. One of them, in particular is pretty dear to my heart. It was my place that I did a lot of journaling type blogging during the rough times at the end of last year and beginning of this one. It was called “Dreams Of A New Life”…

Turbulovert

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.  ~ David Deida   As I continue through my year of finding myself and…

It’s All About Me For Once

This subject has been kind of danced around for several months now, both here and IRL, but I think it’s high time I just get it out there. I’m weary of being careful and censoring myself. I’ve discovered a few things about myself during all of what has gone down, and one of those things is that it’s okay to be me, honest and unadulterated.…

Follow The Goosebumps

I found this quote the other day: Coincidence doesn’t exist and goosebumps never lie. Your body already knows the answer. All you have to do is turn down your spinning mind and continue to follow all signs … because you are always worthy of becoming your best and most actualized self. ~ Victoria Erickson I added the emphasis there because that…

My Bucket Is Empty

  I’m working on a bucket list style collection for my bullet journal and am having SERIOUS problems coming up with items for my list! I really thought I was much more interesting than I am … clearly. I got to about 6 things and was totally stumped. I was hoping for a cute “50 Before 50” kind of thing ……

An Exercise in Patience

aka: That Time Kim Tried Bullet Journaling and Fought Desperately Against The Urge To Burn It All And Start Over. At Least Four Times. I like to say I have Situational OCD. There are some situations where a little clutter or mess really doesn’t bother me too much. And there there are things that I just cannot abide. Anything that I handwrite is…

Taking It Back

I ran across this article from Thought Catalog entitled “26 Ways To Take Your Life Back When You’re Broken” and found that most of the things on this list are things that I have either done already, am currently working on, or want to do at some point. Looks like I have the right idea. * apologies for the very long…

Success

I managed to survive my first “Shitty Single Mom Milestone.” I made it through two weeks on about next to nothing. I knew going in that I would have weeks or months like this. Coming off of a short trip to Nashville for the men’s International Convention, followed immediately by a week at Harmony Camp, it was really just inevitable. I…
