Did you jump or tiptoe into 2021?

Did you jump or tiptoe into 2021?
January is always a time for reflection and goal setting for me, and many others, but this year more than ever before seems to be challenging. I can speculate, but no one really knows what this year has in store for each of us. We never really do, although, other years made it easier to... Read more »

Time is flying by

Time is flying by
While I was out for my walk today, I realized that autumn has clearly arrived. I knew it was coming, but this past week has really brought some changes. The evening air felt cool, and the yearly transformation of the leaves has truly begun. The last time that I looked, it was March. I am not... Read more »

Stay healthy

Stay healthy
Are you focusing on your health and well-being? It is surprising to me that it has been 6 months since we began social distancing practices due to COVID-19. Time has flown by, and I am shocked that it is almost the first day of fall already. I have attended my fair share of zoom workshops... Read more »

Are you struggling too?

Are you struggling too?
What are you struggling to do during the pandemic? At first I had a hard time eating healthy; I just wanted to eat anything and everything. I read that some people are also drinking a little too much. I even heard that others are having a difficult time reading books and focusing. I definitely don’t... Read more »

Oh father

I hope that everyone had a great Father’s day celebrating with those you love last weekend. It has been 20 years now for me without having a living dad on Father’s day. I have also been divorced for 18 years, so my experience of Father’s Day is different. My daughters always went to their dads, so my... Read more »

What will you miss?

What will you miss?
I went for a walk on my lunch break earlier this week, and I walked past my old apartment. My three daughters and I lived there for 11 years, moving in when they were only 5, 7 and 9 years old. It was small for us, but for me it was a wonderful home. I... Read more »

Life is a complex matter

Life is a complex matter
What is your favorite quote or saying? I love inspirational quotes, and even have a few Pinterest Boards that I share them on. It is challenging to choose just one; however, this quote by Walt Disney resonated with me during normal life, but especially now at this time. He was quoted as saying, “I always like... Read more »

What are you doing for fun?

What are you doing for fun?
A hobby is defined as an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure, so what are you doing during this social isolation for fun? I have off work until Tuesday, so I know I will spend time on social media, reading, and watching TV, but I also want to feel good, have fun... Read more »

Please don't lose hope

Please don't lose hope
  I read this quote, “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” So many people I know have been laid off, and are not sure when they will be back to work. A friend of mine lost her brother-in-law to COVID-19. People are scared; people are sad. People I know say they are drinking every day... Read more »
