Who’s In??


I don’t know but over the past 2 years I am indulging in doing the things I’ve always wanted to do but had obstacles stopping me for whatever reasons. Too many to list and not enough time to talk about it. Plus nothing is worth mentioning anyway. Life is short. Let bygones be bygones. Live for the moment. Do what you want and need to do now because sometimes those opportunities could vanish just like that.

Lately I have been and you should try it also…..

Take chances, expressing how you really feel, refuse to let people to use you and treat you like shit, actually like/loving yourself for a change, enjoying the moment even when those moments are far and few in between. Lay around and do absolutely nothing, go with your gut instinct, take care of you, mentally, physically, and financially. Have patience, don’t rush life, listen and I mean really listen when people are talking to you. Don’t take yourself or others for granted. Put the phone down, drink water and lots of it, be strong, be positive, and most of all have the gumption and perseverance to whatever it is you want to do in life and NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

My little home office is getting there and I am totally in love with this space. Hey I just added another pic. I got a lamp tonight for my desk. OMG love it. It has a charging port built right in it for my phone. mo5

 

Don’t discount the little things


So I saw these 3 lil pigs last week at Tj Maxx and debated over buying them. I passed on it and then all week I agonized if they were going to be there this weekend. Well, I lucked out and they were. They were on clearance for $10 bucks.

It’s amazing how the littlest thing can make you happy.

Once I really started appreciating the little things in life, that is when I seriously started feeling at peace with myself.

It doesn’t really require that much effort, time, or money to just take time for yourself and enjoy something. Like a cup of tea. Heat up the water and stick your tea bag in it. If you are on a budget(like myself)what I do is go to somewhere like Tj Maxx. Go to the dry goods section where the teas, nuts, chocolates are. Pick out a tea that peeks your interest. A kind with a pretty box. Go home and make that freakin cup of tea and enjoy it. Put some tunes on, pull up wordpress, facebook, pinterest, and just chill.

Enjoy your day.

No guilt, be happy


I was just writing a comment in a private group on FB. It’s a whole bunch of women talking about dating dilemmas, strategies, the good, the bad, and the ugly lol.

I think I’ve been through every dating scenario possible and I am finally, at age 48, beginning to figure it out. Well, hopefully lol.

I came to the conclusion that you have to throw yourself out there and try everything. Start by asking yourself, what is it that you are looking for? Another few things you have to think about are, is the timing right to get back into the dating scene? Do you still think about your ex? Lastly, and most importantly, are you happy with yourself at this present moment?

I found that unless I have myself together and that the rest of my life was fine tuned, I couldn’t date. Are you happy in your current state of life? That is so important. If something is off-key, then how could you possible date or go into a relationship with an open mind?

Right now I have never been happier with my current dating situation. If it works for you, go for it.

Have a great Saturday everyone!

 

My front porch


This is minimalism at its best. All this took took was a fresh coat of paint and a garage sale find for $80 bucks.

Sitting on a porch is the best therapy a person can get.

Life can be simple if you truly want it to be. Less is definitely more.
