Belonging and what I want…

As you can tell, the last few weeks for me has been filled with some introspection on my part (there may have been more if I didn’t get lazy and stop posting)… and some feedback from others. Today is going to be one of those #BeingReal moments. I’m scared to hit publish (or schedule) because I don’t want to be judged. I know… it’s called being vulnerable.

And today, I’m being VERY vulnerable.

For a long time I haven’t been open to any feedback on my life. I was (and sometimes still am) scared about what others would say about me…

40 books in my library…

So if you know me, you know I like to read. A LOT. And I buy books… A LOT. And sometimes I get around to reading these books… and sometimes I do not. But then another book comes out by one of my favorite authors and I buy it. (And for the record, and what you’ll see below, is that I buy mostly non-fiction… I do read fiction, but it’s usually a one-and-done for me… so those are the ones I get from the library.) 🙂

When I was brainstorming posts earlier this year for writing, I wanted to share…

I want more…

It’s been a week… or thereabouts… since I last published. Obviously I really didn’t plan to take the time off, but I also didn’t really do anything to schedule anything either. Since I last posted, my feeling about life, weight, relationships and just about anything else you can imagine have been all over the charts. Highs and lows. Hills and valleys. And because I didn’t know how to process a lot of it, I just “receded” into myself.

Because feeling nothing, for me at least, is safe.

Then within the last few days, I began contemplating closing this website and blog…

Blame it on the full moon…

I’m not sure why this week I haven’t written… or frankly scheduled anything that even was half written… other than to blame it on the full moon. Or maybe Hurricane Irma (yes, I know I’m in Michigan… but that can’t mean I’m not fascinated and awed by hurricanes) or thinking about my friends in Houston dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The reality is that even though I had a rest-filled Labor Day weekend, where I literally did nothing but eat, read, sleep, eat, read, sleep, eat, see my family, read, sleep… you get the picture. I really never…

40 songs…

Well… I’ll start out by saying that I totally forgot about a post yesterday. But hey. I’m picking it back up. It’s more about the continuing forward… not looking back, right?!?

Today I want to share one of my lists… 40 of my favorite songs. I definitely need to preface this by saying that this is NOT my complete list, nor is it the top 40. I tried to do a top 40, but I can’t decide and then I kept finding more songs that I love. So here’s 40 of my favorites.  🙂
