Relationships

In regards to relationships, you can not expect to get something, if you do not give anything. Does that make sense? Let me start from the beginning. Right now I am snuggled with my blanket against a wall. I'm super cozy and I know I can't sleep because I slept all day. My mind is… Continue reading Relationships

Hammocking 2016

It's early afternoon, I sent my boyfriend off to work and quickly decided what I wanted to do. There were so many options, I could spend more time working out, maybe go for a run.... I could go for a drive then run. Oh! I know, I could go hammocking and since the sky was beautiful,… Continue reading Hammocking 2016

Little quirky things that I love, that are sweet. I need to start congragulating myself for reading, and writing, and getting out bed, and making breakfast for myself. I need to start that.

Maintaining or achieving happiness sometimes means stretching your definitions.   I search for good things or at least things that make me smile everyday.  Some days that means being delighted with my fortune cookie, some days that means finding joy in the absurdity of my fellow commuters (which happens a lot) and some days that means revelling in accomplishments that are trivial.

Maybe out of stubbornness, or pride, or unclear logic, I can’t (and won’t) equate passing the next level of Candy Crush or (the far superior) Cookie Jam with achievement. However, I will celebrate things like a cleaned up desktop.  I can celebrate getting all my laundry done.  I can even celebrate when a blog post gets more than ten views.  I will even celebrate a preparing a meal with more than one vegetable in it.

It is in this vein that I celebrate something rather trivial, but which seemed…
