New Year, New Goals

I’m not a believer in New Years Resolutions. I am a believer in goals, all year long! I write them down daily to remind myself and often cross them off as I accomplish them. I registered for two runs today. I can run a mile. But I need to get back into shape and creating […]

Happy New Year!

2021 was definitely not what anyone expected, nor was 2020. 2022 here we are! The last 2 years have taught me SO much. The last three and a half years taught me so much more. What’s important. What’s not important. What deserves my energy and time, what does not. So many losses, so many gains. […]

❄️

It finally is snowing good. Love where we live and it’s snowing in town too. We went to town and got to pull out a kid stuck in the ditch. It took two of us In diesels to pull out a diesel stuck. We did our good deed for the day.

Congratulations Chris 🎉

5 years alcohol free today. I am SO proud of my husband and all he did to remove alcohol and better his life and our life. I could not be more proud of him. Alcohol is such the norm but that does not mean it’s healthy or good for you as we both know it […]

R&R Much Needed

Rest & relaxation and being alone is often needed for me throughout this TBI journey. This is so not like me pre TBI. But it’s an absolute must for me now. So I had a week. I was losing my mind. Living in a camper plus 2 dogs and my husband, not being in the […]

Anything Can Happen

I am listening to Jess Ekstroms Audio book and she said this and I love it. I do not believe everything happens for a reason. I do believe you can find purpose in it all though. I have explained that in previous posts. But I do love this, anything can happen. So true. Good, bad, […]

Having a bad morning- move your body

Having a bad morning. Emotionally my mind is really messing with me and I am frustrated and realizing how bad so called “friends” suck. So I went for a walk. Moved my body. It sure solves a lot of feelings and frustrations.
