Photo by Free Photos.cc on Pexels.com Today marks this blog's two year anniversary. It all started with this post. Yay! Over the last two years, I have blogged about my struggles, my joys, and the things that made me go "meh." Today I perused a few of those early posts and my, how much I… Continue reading two years.
I just bought a planner and to be honest, it's not the planner I had envisioned it to be. Amazon's description of it was accurate, it just has more features than I had anticipated. It has sections for a life statement, a vision statement, emotional vibrations and affirmations, and thing of all dreadful things...goal setting.… Continue reading goals…or the lack thereof.
I am working my way through 100 Days to Brave by Annie F. Downs. Today's entry was about play and about how play is necessary to our daily lives. I realized that I don't play very much. I have a habit of taking everything in life so very seriously and I love to analyze everything.… Continue reading play.
I don’t do selfies very often. But today...today, I need to share. Today I changed my IG handle from my first and middle names to untightlywound. I am on a quest to not be so tightly wound, hence the new handle. My face and my shallow breath show just how tightly wound I am. I… Continue reading untightly wound.
As much as I enjoy the smell of brewing coffee and the feel of a warm mug of black coffee in my hand, I have come to the realization that I cannot drink it every day.

My anxiety shows up in ways that it won't for others and my coping mechanisms are different than others, so while… Continue reading me + anxiety + coping mechanisms.
dinghies by the wharf. Well, the weekend was blustery and rainy as predicted. I did get out for a walk both Saturday and Sunday and it was so nice to get outside. I also made my stew on Friday evening and it was gone by Saturday evening, so it must have been good. My kiddo… Continue reading beautiful mess.
I just thought I was back in the blogging world. I have been struggling to put fingers to keys and plink out a blog post on a weekly basis. Yet, I feel a need to do so. So, here I am, and I have absolutely no idea what the point of this post is, nor… Continue reading coffee date.
I am a big fan of giving and receiving homemade or handmade gifts. I would rather have a jar of homemade pickled beets or a handmade notebook or something of that ilk than a store-bought present. So, when my son brought this home for me from school yesterday, I gushed effusively. It is a beautiful… Continue reading homemade.
I confess that I have been on a quest to be a healthier version of myself. In fact, I have been on this quest since I was probably around 12-13 years old. This quest has looked different pretty much every year of my life since then. I have tried quite a few diets and quite… Continue reading listen to your body.
