Vacations

Realizing this week of the importance of getting away, unwinding, and stepping away from work.  It revives you, refreshes you, helps you.  Although I am back to reality and my vacation as at an end I had time to reflect and think about what is next. I am in need of a change, something new.

Let us see.....

Friends and Family

I know....I missed last week. I was travelling and spending quality time with friends and family.  Which reminded me of how much they mean to me. I often get consumed with work and attempting to figure out my next moves in life, but I was reminded this weekend to enjoy the moments you have with the people that you love and love you.  That's all I have this morning....

Saturday Morning Muses: Self Care Saturday



Yesterday I was plotting what I would get into this weekend because I realized I have been wasting my weekends away. I have been in a funk and realized that I needed to take Saturday for self care....things that make me feel better. So what I am going to do today???? Well.... the goal is the following:


  1.  Walk a mile at the park
  2.  Go to my favorite juice bar
  3.  Get a pedicure
  4.  Do a little shopping (I need, word used loosely, a new purse)
  5. Attempt to find this bellini champagne I have been wanting, I think they sell it at Trader Joes
  6. Finish up season 3 of Game of Thrones

Of course I have to do some "adulting" today, but that is going to be fit in as I feel.  Today is about trying to get back to me....

Let's see how this goes!!!

Saturday Morning Muses: Online Dating

I came across this meme this week and I could not stop laughing.  Recently I have tried multiple dating sites (including tinder) and realized over and over.....it is not for me.  I mean I desire to be a relationship, but I won't let it consume me, and I won't just settle.  I have friends who have found exactly that they are looking for on various dating sites.....me not so much.

So this week I decided to delete or hide profiles on the various sites that I have tried.  I am not saying I won't ever try again, but for now....not where I am at in my life.

Saturday Morning Muses: Happy but sad

One thing that I struggle with so often is balancing happiness and sadness. So often I when I am sad I still have to be happy for my friends, which I am.  But it hurts sometimes.....my pain should not overshadow the joys of my friends.  Still trying to figure out that balance :-/.

Saturday Morning Muses: questions

I missed last week :-( so I have put a reminder on my calendar....I need this

Yesterday I was browsing instagram and came across a picture which once again caused me to ask why me? What did I do wrong? Sometimes you can have so much confidence in yourself, but the littlest things make you question so much.

Life comes at you sometimes and you think about how things will be, how could the past be different, what is happening in the present.  I am a questioner, I question a lot period, but when life is not going how you think it should???? So many questions.....

Maybe this mood will pass, I hope it is a learning experience.

Saturday Morning Muses: Tears

Tears are pretty much all I got this morning....can't keep taking hit after hit. Tired of asking why and sick of saying why not.  Having a real moment....

Saturday Morning Muses: Relationships

Got to get better at this :-/ Last Saturday I was traveling so I forgot to write.....not a good start.

But today I am on it! Well kind of.  This morning I was inspired by a facebook memory which had my thoughts on relationships.

Tricky subject....Just saying be content in whatever relationship status you are. Don't let being single break you and don't let being married make you.


Just a few thoughts...simple, but thoughts.

Thoughts.....



"She fell for her not just for her looks, although her looks were pretty breathtaking as well. She fell for her personality, and for her beautiful mind."

Saturday Morning Muses: The Start

This morning as I sit in bed I think about writing, what do I want to say?  In attempts to do better about blogging I have decided that Saturday Morning Muses will be my regular posts...a way to start my weekend and get thoughts off chest of how the week went. It won't be my only blog posts, but will me way of at least blogging once a week.

Often times Saturday morning I wake up and I am in my bed just thinking wondering why my bed is holding me hostage, what am I going to do for the day, what is going on wrong (or good) with my life. I know I have to get up and be an "adult" but so often (as I am doing now) I just stay in bed thinking "I don't wanna!!!!!"  So now I will write....

I will keep this going, I will get thoughts and feelings out that I have been keeping inside. I am going back through old posts and seeing how much I have changed and grown that I realize more and more why continuing to blog or write my thoughts is important. Rather people read them or not, my way of letting things out.

Enjoy the ride :-)

It has been a while

This morning I got up and was really like I truly have not blogged in a while. Not on any of my blogs. I began to think about why I started blogging in the first place and wondering if I should continue.....the answer to that is yes.

Think this blog over the years has been a safe place for me. No judgment, not rules, just a space for me to get out thoughts. Right now, good or bad, that is really what I need to do.  I need to step away from this "life" I have created and just get back to what makes me think, what makes me happy, what makes me feel free.  I might not always make sense on here, but it helps, it makes sense to me.

Writing in a space where people don't really know you who read what you write because they stumble across your blog or just find what you say interesting is good for me.  Hopefully someone who reads what I write might find something good for them too.


Life is taking an interesting turn I would say and I honestly don't know which direction I will go in.  What I do know it is time for me to just do me. Fuck what others think and just live. Easier said than done, but it is a goal.....I can only be me, take it or leave it.
