Gratitude

Today I wanted to focus on the good things in life. Life has been hard and there seems to be a cloud of darkness that is constantly roaming. My depression has made its grand appearance and for me it manifests in sporadic crying, anxiety, lack of energy and socializing becomes taxing. It is necessary for…

How’s it going…

If I am being honest… Last week was tough for me. I was not motivated to eat healthy meals. Even though I didn’t eat out I did not cook the healthiest meals. I still managed to lose half a pound but I know that I could have done better. I also had 2 days where…

Keep It Moving…

Working out… I HATE working out! That’s another reason I’ve gained so much weight over the last 8 years (75 lbs. at my heaviest). I used to go to the gym and do yoga everyday. One day I was in a bad car accident and I tore a muscle in my leg and that was…

2021… what have you accomplished? This whole pandemic thing has been so challenging for so many. I can say with certainty that my relationship with God has gotten stronger.

Having the same concept in mind let’s think about a relationship during a fight. We can agree that fights are taxing to both people in the relationship. Both…

A doctor that cares…

I received a letter from the OBGYN office I visit, my doctor retired… oh no! (he was like 82) I was referred to a new doctor. At a different location and I was a little aggravated because it was 10 minutes farther from the original location. During the appointment the doctor asked me several questions…

The first six…

The first six months of my marriage have been a rollercoaster ride. There have been days where I. can. not. stand. my husband and other days where I get butterflies just thinking that he is the man I call husband. I am a victim of Hollywood RomComs. I grew up watching these beautiful stories with…
