5 Years Ago..

5 years ago my dad picked me up from jail. My fiancé at the time was starting a new job so he surely wasn’t going to pick me up. My fiancé was newly sober and I had went to the beach house and got a DUI. Honestly I’m glad it happened. It was the wake […]

Toxic Positivity

Absolutely love this book I am listening too right now by a therapist. It highlights so much truth in just the 25% I am into it. I don’t believe in toxic positivity, I don’t believe it is in gods hands and that’s my belief and it’s ok if we have different beliefs. I do not […]

Love my workout views

It’s Friday and my workout day, the view with the garage open was amazing with the sunrise, fog, birds chirping and owl 🦉 hooting. Can’t beat this view. And that’s our car which the dirtiness kills my husband but it comes with where we live, we got it when we moved up here in July. […]

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. […]

A white Christmas 🎄

It’s a white Christmas and I got a personal record on my run this morning while looking at the snow. 3.6 years ago I ran 8-8.5 minute miles and when I first ran after my TBI was at 18 minute miles. Slowly getting there. As I always say hey I’m doing it and time really […]

I did it!

I got my permit today! I studied and I passed the test. I got my permit at 41 years old 🤣. I am so excited, but I am also so aware. Like I know I can’t see well at night with my glasses even so I won’t drive at night. I also know I won’t […]

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.
