I mean that’s life right? It’s pretty mundane. Same thing, day in day out. We have our daily lists made up of a mix of things like work, parenting, chores, school, study, sleep or lack thereof, pastimes, a major event here and there. The trick is finding meaning in those mundane days. Ok, have I […]Read More Week 16: More of the same
For some reason, this week, my days seem to have zoomed by faster than I can fathom. I arrived at work on what I thought was Thursday to find the parking lot emptier than it usually was. When I looked t at the calendar when I got to the office, it was actually Friday and […]Read More Week 15: Surviving on music and podcasts
I haven’t written much this week. Truth be told, I haven’t done much of anything. Insomnia reared its ugly head again and thwarted all the plans I had carefully laid. I spent most nights struggling to sleep and in the morning, here came sleep which is so frustrating during the workweek. Today being an off […]Read More Week 14: Insomnia rears its ugly head
Sometimes life becomes too distracting and disruptive that I neglect to carve out the 10-13 minutes I need for my #DailyCalm guided meditations. And I forget how much I enjoy them, how serene yet alive I feel after these brief sessions, and how bit by bit, that calm feeling is staying with me longer and […]Read More Then I meditate
Don’t want to post much this week. Between too much work and continued bouts with insomnia, I’m in need of R&R. I’ll be back next week.Read More Week 13: In need of R&R.
Dear sleep: Look, I can explain. For two straight nights, you’ve run away from me despite my pleas. Ok, I was too desperate. I get it. I begged too much, tossed too much, turned too much, snacked too much, sipped too much, browsed too much, Netflixed too much. Oh wow!, you are right. It was […]Read More Dear sleep, I can explain
Is that a word? Probably not. It’s more an expression I guess. Whatever it is, ugh! No, actually a big fat UGH! I hate when sleep is as elusive as it is tonight. I hate that I get anxious when that happens. I hate that the anxiety feeds on itself creating even more anxiety. I […]Read More One word: Ugh!
Wow!, that week just flew by. I didn’t even get a chance to post a single blog not even any of the daily prompts. I’ve been leaving the house about 8am and returning around 8pm. I usually have dinner and head to bed. No exercise, no chores, no writing, no nothing..just work. I hope I’ve […]Read More Week 12: 12-hour Work Days
So let’s see what happened this past week. Work was a nightmare. It’s not that the job is hard. Truth be told, it’s an easy, pretty mediocre analyst job. The problem is just how fast-paced it is becoming as time goes on. It is near impossible to keep up. We are indefinitely shorthanded and I […]Read More Week 11: Another week saunters by
I wish I could wax some poetic or deeply meaningful stuff or something. Isn’t there a supposed link about 3am and artistic talent? Or something like that. This meme certainly alludes to it. But Nope, all I can think of is: It’s 3:21am. And I’ll be up the proverbial creek without a paddle in the […]Read More 3:21 am
