I want to Believe

When people let you down

It's inevitable. People will let you down. That's why I went into veterinary medicine and have animals. Sometimes I just feel like giving up on people, or not trying so hard anymore.  Sometimes it's hard to do those Tiny Love Challenges and Be the change. Sometimes I just want someone to dote on me for… Continue reading When people let you down

We are all Flawsome

What if we each embraced our Flawsomeness instead of talking negatively to ourselves? If we each talked positively to ourselves, gave ourselves self-love, and maybe a hug....or at least a nice warm soak in the tub frequently; do you realize how much we could raise our own vibration? How about the collective vibration of the… Continue reading We are all Flawsome

There was a disturbance in the force last night

  Last night we went to see The Last Jedi, Episode 8 in Star Wars. Yes, I'm kind of a Star Wars geek. Just ask Wicket W. Warrick, The Ewok, who was given to me for Christmas in 1982, and is still with me today, albeit, a little flattened and scruffy. I have multiple Wicket… Continue reading There was a disturbance in the force last night

How my thinking has changed over my lifetime

Yesterday, I guess it was, I saved the above 3 pictures off of Instagram when I made my "story" up… Continue reading How my thinking has changed over my lifetime

migraines and cool surprises in the mail

I’m a Guinea Pig

My Fire Fox hates WordPress when it’s snowing, or, Day 2

I apologize! This is only really the third day of me blogging. I thought I put this on the blog. I couldn't check the site because of internet problems. We've discovered our filter for our phone line and internet was corroded, so we need to get new ones. So this isn't actually going out until… Continue reading My Fire Fox hates WordPress when it’s snowing, or, Day 2

Stress & Meditation thoughts

As some of my close friends know, I am really into meditation, herbs, supplements, essential oils, etc. Basically mindful thinking and plant and mineral medicine. I have been working really hard on living in the present moment for the past 5 years. (And it is REALLY a struggle some days!) I have been meditating off… Continue reading Stress & Meditation thoughts
