Decision fatigue is exhausting. It also prevents you from doing day to day tasks, having good experiences and relationships, accomplishing goals, and just feeling like you have a handle on your life. It also can seem like an impossible thing to fix. I mean, who has the time? We do. Our joy requires it. Our … Continue reading Decision Fatigue pt. 2 What’s Really Going On Here?
Note: As I was planning this post, I was just going to write one on the subject. As I was writing this post, I realized that there was no way to do that. I don’t mean to leave you all hanging, as there is so much more to say. It’s just that this writing turned … Continue reading Decision Fatigue, pt. 1
Did you do any resolutions for the New Year? How is that going? When I started doing my “reset” last fall, I decided at the time that that was a big enough project for me. Resolutions would be too much to add. I really don’t like resolutions much anyway, even though the beginning of the … Continue reading Those Pesky New Year’s Resolutions
I know it’s been a while since I posted. Truth is, I haven’t been able to get motivated to write much of anything until just recently. As I look back, I can understand why. 2019 had such major health issues for me. When I started 2020, I was really looking forward to getting back to … Continue reading A Life Reset
It’s a crazy, upside-down world right night now. So many of us are hunkered down at home trying to protect ourselves from an illness we can’t see and don’t quite understand.

I had a metal decorative gazebo in the back yard where I thought I could set things up. Under the … Continue reading Thriving: Listen to Your Heart
Last week I talked about how a simple thing like a weed in nature survives and thrives even in the toughest of places. It may have seemed like an odd place to start our journey, but I thought if you could see how simple the basics steps of thriving are, it might be easier to … Continue reading Thriving: The First Step
It’s funny, as soon as I mentioned that I wanted to do a multi-part series on thriving, I ran into a bit of a downer month. It was like the world was telling me "Hey lady, you don’t know as much as you think you do.” I ran into some big issues with a new … Continue reading Thriving: Be Like The Weed
When I finished my cancer treatment, and I was seen at being “EOD” (meaning End of Disease); I became known as a survivor. I guess the medical staff has to put you in some sort of a category, a box as it were, and this is mine. Honestly though, I really dislike being put into … Continue reading Surviving or Thriving?
Things are changing. Last year did not go as planned. I had my garden plans, I had plans for new tours at the Arboretum. I wanted to travel. And pretty much all of those plans went straight out the window in February. I spent a good part of the rest of the year, along with … Continue reading Changes
