What Shoes are on my feet?

There are days that I amaze myself at how well I can function.  I am up, dressed, and totally on point.  Out the door before I am supposed to be, at my desk early and cranking away at the good ole to do list and making grand progress.  Almost robotic in a way.   Then… Continue reading What Shoes are on my feet?

Our interaction was not what is usually was.  I gave my report as… Continue reading Knocked Down and Feeling Out

Patience, the virtuous thing

How many times have you been told that patience is a virtue?  I have personally lost count.  Just so I clearly understood what a virtue was I looked it up (just love that I no longer have to pull out an actual dictionary and can go online, what an ingenious invention, but I digress…) and… Continue reading Patience, the virtuous thing

Pep Talks

A pep talk is a noun that is defined as “a talk intended to make someone feel more courageous or enthusiastic.” I needed one of these talks yesterday after my psychiatry appointment. Over the last two weeks I have literally been a combination of super woman and wonder woman.  I have been able to leap… Continue reading Pep Talks
