Continue the path


Another year, another opportunity to not make a resolution. This year I won’t be making one as I don’t have a specific thing I want to change right now. I made so many (positive!) changes in 2017, that those are enough for a while. I also don’t have any “goals”, as those are some things to be obtained. I started so many new things last year and they will not be ending this year.
So, I think I will say that this year I will “continue”. I will continue my health journey, appreciating the success I have already had. I will continue my education that I started at my new university. I will continue learning my role at my new job. I will continue to be a loving caretaker to those that need me. I will continue to “trust myself” this year. I will continue on the paths that I have chosen and see where they lead. I believe I know where I will be, but we all know about the “best laid plans of mice and men”.
I feel so good about where I am heading that I don’t mind the sacrifices too much. Admittedly, there are rough patches, and setbacks, but like most things, they are temporary. It will just make the reward that much sweeter, right?
I wish you all much success as you continue your own path this year.

Trust Yourself


Well, lookie here – it’s already a new year. And in keeping with my resolution of no resolutions, this year I challenge myself, and all of you to “Trust Yourself”.

2016 was a rough year in a lot of ways, for a lot of people – including myself. I am not where I expected to be, and for that I am disappointed. But, I am going to try very hard in the new year to trust myself – my decisions and my opinions. As “they” say, we know ourselves the best. I am going to work on making sure that I believe in what I choose to do. And to be gentle with myself, no matter how things turn out.

I wish joy and love to each of you. And give you permission to trust in yourself. You’ve got this!

Getting back to the regular normal

Now that the holidays are over, all the short, erratic weeks are behind us. Unfortunately, we have to be all adulty and get back on our regular schedule. This is actually a good thing, save for missing out on my daily midday naps.

Look at me with that whole algebraic 10th power going on!

Look at me with that whole algebraic 10th power going on!

It’s also when some of you have made your resolutions for the year. I don’t really have any that I make for myself anymore, except for my ongoing goal to “Be Better”, and this year I hope that you all can take up that task, too. I also want to know if you can give me any feedback on one of my Christmas presents, too.

Are you guys ready to get back to your new regular normal, too?

Editing Lives and Being Nice to People

Hi again! This time I’m talking about how we edit our lives for online consumption. We all do, it’s a fact of (online) life. Hell, it’s even a fact of IRL life, too. Because, really – do you know everything about your coworker, and vice versa to you? I also talk about how we need to be nice to people, because, since we don’t know everything about what is going on with them, they deserve our patience. And I finish up with a challenge to you, and myself, to try and reign in our frustration this week, and be nicer to people. Let’s see how that works out.

White Girls Don’t Use Washcloths?

The other day, I was reading the article “The Caucasian’s Guide To Black Churches”, because a girl always needs to be prepared. But, my main takeaway from the article was this:

There are three things people of color can never understand about Caucasian culture:

1. The way you let your children talk to you.

2. Why y’all don’t use washcloths.

3. What you wear to church.

white people don't use washcloths

What? What do you mean white people don’t use washcloths? This is sincerely news to me. It must definitely be a cultural or a geographical issue, because we definitely use them around here. And, me, growing up in my white, suburban bubble never even knew it was a thing. Like, it just never occurred to me that not everyone uses washcloths.

So, I made a video about my shock and disbelief, while yelling at you about using those nasty plastic loofahs. Enjoy.
