I’ll start with the bad this week. My lack of sleep hit a severe low, I had gone for 4-5 days on very little sleep. I was exhausted, mentally foggy, dragging, feeling hopeless..did I mention exhausted? I felt like I was literally losing my mind. So I am back on pretty strong prescription meds for […]Read More Week 7: I geek out on Black Panther
I am a bit of a visuals-junkie. I like memes, phone themes, Google photos, Pinterest, Instagram and so on and so forth. So I change my wallpaper, my themes, profile pics often to match the season, the day, my mood, my hopes or just for fun. For Valentine’s Day, there are themes and photos and […]Read More Courage
Today was my off day. I work Tuesday through Saturday. I spent the morning soaking in some rays. I started here: Then moved here: Though I had to share my space with the cat! Then here: I haven’t been sleeping too well and I’m hoping that getting more morning sunshine will help reset my body […]Read More A good day!
Sleep right now is as elusive as it has ever been. That’s probably not true but it sure feels that way right now. I was up most of last night and the night before with short spells of intermittent sleep with very vivid disturbing dreams. Towards morning today, I felt my body ease into a […]Read More If I could just relax..and not worry about not sleeping
This is basically where I am sleepwise. But I’m sick and tired of talking about it. So on to other stuff this week. I made the mistake of entering my phone number on one of those ever increasing online forms and ended up spending several days fending off Quicken Loans. These guys are totally relentless.

I used to hate meditation. I could never stop my mind wandering. And silly me, I thought I was the only one whose mind wandered this way. Little did I know that this was a universal issue. Then I discovered Guided Meditations and now I love it, even look forward to it. I use the […]Read More The soundtrack in our minds.
This past week was good.. everything considered. I had coffee with a good friend. It was good to catch up. I took two days off from work and caught up on tasks that I had not had a chance to get to. I even finished unpacking my suitcase from my trip to Nairobi last December. […]Read More Week 5: Ebbs and Flows
Dear fellow driver, please use your blinkers, also known as, signals. Your blinker/signal does not help me if:- You are already halfway in my lane. I have to brake and/ or swerve to let you turn or get in my lane. You are in my blind spot. Sorry, I cannot, and did not see you. […]Read More Pet Peeve: Drivers and the car signal
Bye Bye January. January was a bit of a mixed bag for me . It started with me battling a bad bout of bronchitis and then it got good and I started working out doing at least 20 minutes of TaeBo in the morning and sleeping better. I was very proud of myself. Then a […]Read More February Wellness Goals
In my last post, I wrote of how things seemed to be falling into place and indeed they were. I was working out, sleeping better and feeling pretty darn good about myself. It appears I spoke too soon. This past week, everything fell apart. Well not everything, my sleep primarily. From getting pretty good sleep, […]Read More Week 4: Me thinks I jinxed myself
