Intentions, yo!

Hey ya’ll!  It’s that time of year again. 2016 can suck it, amirite? While I did get to do a lot of cool things, one thing that did not happen was finding time in 2016 for all my intentions, I am keeping it simple: 2017 is all about ME. I can already hear you saying “she will…

New Intentions for 2014

I have done a lot of these posts since I started blogging again in 2008.  Here is the short version:  It is about a phrase really that signifies you readjusting your expectations and going over failed resolutions. I always set intentions, rather than resolutions, because if you don’t intend to actually do it, what’s the…

Set Your Intentions for 2011

It’s that time of year again and I am here to ask, have you set your intentions for 2011? I have talked about this before and have had a great deal of experience with how resolutions don’t work. I just don’t think it is the right way to create a change you are looking for….

50 Years Of Learning

On September 3rd, I turn 50.    Y’all, it’s weird as hell.  It’s a number that doesn’t feel like it fits but I know I’ve been through a lot.    In an effort to be somewhat introspective, I sat down to make a list of what I know so far. I don’t know if it will…

Here We Go Again!

Not gonna lie, the past 12 months have been some serious nightmare fuel.  Combining that with some rather serious family health issues this last month, I think I have had all I can take.  There is no way 2018 can beat me up the same.  I can’t let it.  I won’t let it. I have…

What makes a book a classic?

Towards the end of every year I work on my list on intentions.  I do this no matter what and I work on those lists all year because, well, I just don’t want to be the kind of person with a larger list of regrets than accomplishments.  I know that over the next year, one…

Ring in the New Year

For those of you that know me, I am not big on resolutions.  I just don’t believe they work.  What I do at the beginning of every year is set intentions.  These are things I intend to do in the year and more often than not, I get through the list quite nicely.  This year,…

Politics, Smut Peddling and My Year of Ups and Downs

Politics and My Real Life I will go ahead and get it out of the way.  For those that know me, I know you are surprised that I have been silent on the matter.  That is strictly because I have been so damn busy.  Here goes–I am not sure why people even CONSIDER voting against…

Money Making Madness

So, amidst all the New Year’s intentions and learning to make exercise a self-loving habit, I have also been busy learning new ways to have the things we want without the cost. The prospect of being a full time graduate student, aside from the work, brings about visions of the ridiculous expense. While it is…

Day 13: 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels

So I screwed up my streak yesterday…I didn’t work out. ::GASP:: I felt like crap when I woke up and thought since even God rested, I can take every 13th day off. So there. I rested, stayed pretty still and woke up this morning thinking that I did not want to get out of bed….
