I Could Stay In Bed Or I Can Push Back

Saturday, September 10th As I write this, I find myself on an airplane. If you had asked me 3 days ago if I would be on this plane I’m not sure I would have given a confident yes. The last few days have been really rough. Everything I am trying to manage reared it’s headContinue reading “I Could Stay In Bed Or I Can Push Back”

When Introversion Becomes Borderline Reclusive With A Sprinkle Of Distance

I’ve had a lot of thoughts filling my head lately and sometimes it feels like nothing is going on up there. It’s been a strange time. I feel like I have a ton to spill out on the pages, but I tend to be faced with the same thing…I have no idea where to start.Continue reading “When Introversion Becomes Borderline Reclusive With A Sprinkle Of Distance”

A Hiatus, But It Was More Than That

There comes a time when you are rolling right along, the ideas are coming from all directions, and then WHAM…NOTHING! It’s strange. The ideas just disappear.

Where To Go Next

It has been a while since I last wrote. I hope everyone is good! And If not, that is OK. It is OK to not be OK. This is something I want to scream from the highest and the lowest places on Earth for all to hear. We need to make this idea the norm.Continue reading “Where To Go Next”

Calling Solo…Solo Party Of One

I recently saw a quote that alluded to being comfortable with yourself when you are by yourself. Naturally it got me thinking. Just about everything does anymore, but this one I have dwelled on for some time. Am I comfortable with myself? It’s time to dive into the idea of a solo party of one.Continue reading “Calling Solo…Solo Party Of One”

The Weekend Of The Three Pillars Of Excellence

Over this past weekend I was able to spend time with three huge pillars of my life and I came out alive! I came out more than alive! It was three unique, but equally great, experiences in every sense of the word.  I spent time with part of my core on Thursday. An old buddyContinue reading “The Weekend Of The Three Pillars Of Excellence”

Music And The Pandemic: A Way To Bridge The Gap

I have written a number of times about the effects of the pandemic and how it has affected my mental health. Even if you don’t write or do anything like this, I’m guessing you have described the pandemic in a way that describes how it has specifically affected you and your mental health.
