Just a Thought…

Peace from Panic

IMG_5423 - Copy

I’ve never been much of a risk taker, so I totally identify with this. Sometimes it’s hard to get out of my comfort zone. I’m comfortable there!

But when I try something new, branch out, and reach higher than I thought I could, life can be so much more rewarding.

Sure, there’s a chance of failure. But if I don’t try, I’ll never know. If I don’t climb the mountain, I’ll never see the stunning view.

My husband and I have tried to teach this lesson to our daughters. When Mackenzie and Talee were little, we encouraged them to try new foods, make new friends, and play different sports.

Now that they’re older, we support the girls in their decisions to travel and experience the world. We’ve always tried to instill a sense of adventure and a zest for life. That happens when they push the limits and go beyond…

Silver Sneakers part of my medical plan.

Advocate for Mental and Invisible Illnesses

I had silver sneakers with my other plan, but never used it. I intend to start using it. I can join more than one because they all have different amenities available for silver sneakers and some slap on a per class fee whereas the gym itself is free.

As my son the personal trainer says, “if I want to be in a wheelchair continue what I am doing now.”

Mental and physical problems aside I don’t want to be in a wheelchair. I may be lazy, but not that lazy. And my health depends on better physical fitness. I can get rid of some of this medicine with exercise and losing weight.

I start a new anti-depressant tonight. Remeron with my mood stabilizer staying the same.

Happy 100th Birthday Raymond Burr

Waldina

Today is the 100th birthday of the actor Raymond Burr. He played Lars Thorwald in Rear Window and I am not even sure he had any lines, but was nevertheless frightening. He played Perry Mason and Robert T. Ironside, two of the best TV detectives of the 60s and 70s. The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.

Never Alone

Two Are Better Than One

Good Monday morning, friends! I trust that you had a wonderful weekend, and now you’re ready to start a new week — ripe with opportunities to grow, to love, to teach, and to serve. Some of us will actively seek to do these things while others do them with seemingly very little effort. It’s just who they are and how they operate.

All that time and effort you spend actively doing God’s will can be exhausting. It’s rewarding, but some days you just feel spent. That is when you should unplug for a spell. Disconnect from the world, and spend some time alone. Allow yourself some quiet time to reconnect with God. You don’t need an agenda; choose to do nothing but listen to your surroundings and your body — the rhythm of your beating heart, the sound of your breath as you exhale, and the sounds of nature just…

You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

Blog of a Mad Black Woman

grinds my gears (500x376)

As some of you may or may not know, there is to be a snap election on 8th June in the UK. My opinion? I think it is too soon after Brexit, but who am I to put in my two pennies worth? Anyway, normally, I don’t get involved with politics online. However,yesterday, there were two exceptions.

With the first one, my friend posted it had been ‘leaked’ (f**k me, I’m sick of this word) that if elected, Labour would scrap tuition fees. Well isn’t that grand of them? The amount of sarcasm that went through my mind as I typed the last sentence… The conversation went like this:

Person A:Really? I remember it was Labour who introduced tuition fees.

My Friend:They may have done this but it was the Conservatives who hiked the fees up to an extortionate and unrealistic amount so as to put the working…
