Internet Trolls. How do we identify them? How do we spot them in action? How do we avoid the pitfalls, and how do we circumnavigate around these feral beings? Are you one? Chances are, we’ve all made a “one off” kind of vague post, or commented on a thread, knowing that we’re likely going to…

My therapist has informed me I need to find things to mindlessly do while I’m having a panic attack or anxiety outbreak. I have decided to check a few out this past weekend, and already have two on my phone which I should mention at some point as well. This first one though is about…

They say that the best things in life are free. They also say the best things in life aren’t “things”, but moments captured in time. “They” have a lot to say about a lot of things apparently. My six little things that make my day better vary from second to day, moment to event, packing…

Sometimes, we’re so caught up in the mælstrom of life that we don’t see the beauty around us because it is spinning so fast and we can’t slow down. Sometimes, life is in a slow-motion view, and you’re watching everything play out in a way you see clearer than anything, but you have to ask…

Suck it up, Buttercup. This isn’t always the best advice.   Accept and acknowledge life isn’t always fantastic. This is more realistic.

Today is covering two days worth of words: Accepting and Geeky. Yesterday was insane for me, so I’m playing catch up again. Trying to stay on top of these things, but sometimes we just have to accept (ooh, see what I just did?) the fact that fun geeky (now I’m just stretching it) things have…

30DYW: Day 5 – Proud My BuJo got here yesterday and I didn’t have a lot of time to really play with it much. I had to do some math to get it to have a certain setup for a mini calendar before the YAAG (year at a glance) which I still need to finish…

We’re going to look at the words I chose for this particular cycle. Each day, I’m going to go into WHY I chose each one, and how it relates to the 30days, Your Way cycle #1. Today’s word: WELCOME. There’s an obvious part to this: we’re starting the new cycle, so I wanted to welcome…

Don’t let your mind be alone too long. This might need a bit of explanation. You see, for those of us who suffer from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and other emotional stresses, syndromes, disorders, whatever you want to term them as – spending any significant amount of time just thinking, overthinking and worrying generally leads…

I finished my first workout at the MUA gym about an hour and a half ago. It was shorter than I will be doing from here on, but let’s face it; I haven’t spent time in a gym since my last visit to Crunch Fitness in Staten Island way back on February 9th. I figured…

A year ago, I was making excuses for not wanting to get off the couch in Staten Island, NY. My back was sore, my leg was bugging me, I had a migraine, I didn’t sleep well, blah blah blah. I was the queen of internal silent excuses, and the number one thing: no one was…
