The Sunday Post: Breathing it All In

It’s been a good week, mostly. I had a rough day earlier this week, missing my dad. I’m not sure how to explain it but the timing of everything that happened last year made it even harder than it would have been to deal with it. Because he passed away just days after finding out…

The Sunday Post: Grounded

Over the last few days I’ve received a few suggestions for what to do with the items that were causing me (and Jenny) pain or bringing back memories that I would rather set aside for now. Someone suggested I take a seam ripper to the blanket and remove the embroidery. I also got a suggestion…

The Sunday Post: Tiptoe

I went for a walk this afternoon on the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The trail took us through Falls Park in downtown Greenville and because it was such a beautiful day many others were out too. They were on bikes, skates, skateboards, walking their dogs, and I noticed at least one couple just relaxing on a…

The Sunday Post: A Poem on Valentine’s Day

Like Riding a Bicycle I had a dream last night that I was on a bicycle. This was odd really, and almost seems impossible. You see, I’ve never, ever, ridden a bike. Though, according to my baby book, I did have a trike. My mother wrote that my legs weren’t quite long enough so maybe…

The Sunday Post: Familiarity

It snowed last night! If my daughter hadn’t texted me though I might not have noticed until this morning. I had the shades down in my living room, watching a couple more episodes of “How to get away with murder” and hoping to stay awake long enough to catch Dan Levy’s appearance on SNL, and…

The Sunday Post: Growth

This week’s bloom was about growth. Blossoming. Doing what you didn’t think was possible. I’ve been doing a lot this month that I wasn’t all that sure was possible not too long ago. There’s the more obvious things like yoga every day, thinking of ten things every day that I’m grateful for, drinking more water,…

The Sunday Post: Balancing Tricks

It had only been a day or two since I had written about balance, so when I pulled this week’s bloom I’m not sure if I should have been surprised when I read it or accepted that it was simply a sign that I was on the right track. Today I’m writing about balance again,…

The Sunday Post: Self Care

Self care. A lot of people talk about it, and some even poke fun at the idea. Maybe they think it’s an indulgence, or selfish behavior, or something that only those with money can participate in. I don’t think it’s just about treating yourself, although doing something that you normally wouldn’t do, either because of…

The Sunday Post: Future

What does the future hold for me? This week’s bloom reminded me that much of that is within my control. So what do I want for my future? One of my goals for the year was to set money aside every paycheck and put it in my savings account.. Having my paycheck go directly to…
