Intentional Kindness

I’ve been thinking a lot about kindness – like can’t sleep at all this past week, so I’m up all night thinking about it . Last night, Ā needing to do something to further my thoughts, I was reading and pinning, and then realized this morning that it’s “Random Act of Kindness Day”. Why wouldn’t it be? šŸ˜‰ More and more, I come to the conclusion … Continue reading Intentional Kindness

existing on the introversion – extroversion spectrum

I just readĀ Lifehack’s 19 Real Life Examples of An Extroverted Introvert So You Don’t Get Confused. It’s an interesting topic. I never thought of myself as an introvert until more recent years. I’ve always enjoyed conversation and people. And then, I have this memory of being with my mother, and how someone was noting how I wasn’t talking – we were at the grocery store, … Continue reading existing on the introversion – extroversion spectrum

the confusion of knowledge

Someone sent me an article about how creative people’s brains work differently. It was saying that the whole left brain, right brain thing is incorrect. Creative’s brains are working making connections and working with both sides. The article pointed out that this is why creative people can understand and exist conflicting terms. Coupled with my INFP-ness, it’s no wonder all the understanding can actually make … Continue reading the confusion of knowledge

being dismissed … things that irk

There is a feeling of discomfort that comes with being dismissed as “new-agey” “hippy-dippy” etc. Someone on my Facebook feed posted this article: New Age Roommate Has A Crystal For That Which promptly got a series of likes from dudes, and “LOL” type comments. Being that the comments were from dudes and this article was about a lady, I am questioning how much of the … Continue reading being dismissed … things that irk

Being productive, and people wanting things from you

Fibromyalgia is exhausting to have. That exhaustion permeates every aspect of my life. It’s always accompanied by its BFF, pain, and dealing with both of them all the time is difficult. It’s kind of like they’re people I have to care for and plan my life around, even though I really don’t want to. I experience a lot of guilt, because of my personality type, … Continue reading Being productive, and people wanting things from you

for the haters in my circle

There’s this whole thing about how the internet isn’t real. I get it. If you remove the internet from our lives, it doesn’t effectively change who we are. But it is a real extension of ourselves. It’s our knowledge and connection. It’s lots of invisible things that are really important to us in some way, individually, or collectively. So it’s not really separate. We can’t … Continue reading for the haters in my circle

The difference between talking and complaining

Recently, I realized that people close to me view my vocalization about Fibromyalgia negatively. This brings up a whole lot of things I wish people would understand. The first is how this hurts – that you don’t understand, andĀ are passing judgement. As far as not passing judgement, and trying to understand, I know people can be uncomfortable in regard to witnessing others’ feelings. Please know … Continue reading The difference between talking and complaining

Yin Yoga: Hip Sequence

I was in SO much pain this morning, everything was so tight. I knew I needed to find something different to really stretch those tight side/back/hip muscles. Smart phones + pinterest are amazing things. In under a minute, I had a good looking sequence to try out – the pictures and descriptions seemed easy enough to figure out. The first part is similar to what … Continue reading Yin Yoga: Hip Sequence
