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 »

Masks DO work

Masks DO work
This pandemic is scary. When precautions started in March, I was lucky because I could work from home. At first, I didn’t go anywhere except the grocery store and began wearing a mask when I went.

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.

Do you keep a journal?

Do you keep a journal?
My first experience with journaling came when I was around nine or ten years old with a little locked diary to write my daily thoughts. It is a practice I have continued through my entire life. What once was a log or record of my day has evolved and become so much more. Often I... Read more »

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 »

So many people are posting photos from the end of 2009 and now in 2019 for the #DecadeChallenge. Last month, I joined in also posting a fun picture of my mom, my sister and I together; however, I have been thinking about it ever since. What was I doing and where was I ten years... Read more »
