Mind over Matter….

Do the thoughts and emotions running through our minds have an effect on the outside world? Quite a bit of the reading I’ve done here of late would seem to say “yes.” Fascinating concept and something to ponder as I go through my daily routine. I can readily say that I am an overthinker asContinue reading “Mind over Matter….”

100 Days of Writing – Day One Hundred

It’s taken me just over eleven months to get one hundred days of writing. As I look back over the ninety-nine posts, I’m reminded of on thing: impermanence. Things are always going to be changing in life and we must accept things that we don’t particularly like or understand along the path. So much hasContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day One Hundred”

100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Eight

Random journal entries are interesting to read and sometimes give a new perspective on the past…These are my words from a journal that contains a wide variety of views and observations. I don’t have any particular objective with my selection of writings. Just to share what was going through my mind at the time. NovemberContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Eight”

100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Four

Radical acceptance…radical surrender…and lessons to be learned. I’ve read a lot about the process of “letting go” and although it seems simple, it’s definitely never easy. There are so many, some say most, things that are beyond our locus of control in this world. It seems this is especially true when it comes to otherContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Four”

100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Three

The world of emotions can be like a roller coaster ride with lots of ups and downs. But as a friend reminded me today, at least I have a roller coaster. This week of spring break has been a good time to relax and get a few things done around the house. While I didn’tContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Three”

Shared Reading: “The Point of No Return”

There are those points in our lives when we realize we cannot return to our former way of living. And while those times past can often come calling, we have to understand that staying in the present moment and moving forward are always going to be in our best interest. I struggle with this onContinue reading “Shared Reading: “The Point of No Return””

100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety

There are those times when I can come up with some “big picture” thoughts about life. This past week, I had some such thoughts and share them now, for what they’re worth. So, what is my point, my “reason for living” in this world? Do I have a specific purpose or am I “just kindContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety”

100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Nine

The past two days have been most-glorious in terms of the weather. One of those classic times where spring is definitely in the air. And time, of course, for spring cleaning. It’s always been a true chore for me and this year is no different. Such is the tale of David’s spring cleaning. Keeping thingsContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Nine”

100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Eight

My thoughts were flowing tonight as I wrote in my journal…and I share those words here. I am running myself ragged pondering all that my mind wants to understand. I look at the events of the past and then the present circumstances – things as they are – trying to understand it all. But thenContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Eight”

100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Six

I’ve been writing in a journal for the past twenty-plus years. It was a suggestion from a therapist who I was seeing at the time. Little did I realize at the time what an important part of my life it would become. I found a journal the other day that I never had finished. IContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Six”
