  • Believing in magic

    Posted on May 3, 2017 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about magic. Do you believe in magic? Do you believe in miracles? Sure, most of my generation believes in the magic of “Harry Potter” and we’re all still waiting for our Hogwarts letters (I still consider myself to be a Slytherin nonetheless), but I don’t exactly mean that. I mean the […]

  • Anticipation

    Posted on February 1, 2017 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about anticipation. We have a vacation planned and just cannot wait one second longer for it to begin. We’re excited for [insert] and just cannot stand the suspense. And it’s an amazing feeling to be excited about something. It makes the clouds seem to slip away just a bit, as you’re […]

  • Just more disappointment

    Posted on January 17, 2017 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about disappointment. More disappointment. It sometimes feels like life is a ride of disappointment, with a few waves of happiness sprinkled in there. Or maybe that’s just me being cynical again. Recently, I’ve had to deal with more disappointment. And while I ultimately feel liberated and freed, it’s heartbreaking. I have […]

  • Change my name, you ask?

    Posted on November 16, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about changing my name. You know, after marriage. To my future husband’s last name. I see girls I know getting married all around me, changing their names immediately on facebook. I think it’s safe to assume that they’re changing their last names in the eyes of the law as soon as […]

  • How to be cool

    Posted on October 28, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    “One person to think you’re cool and you’re in. The others will be too scared to question it.” – Never Been Kissed I got to thinking about this quote. I hear it a lot in my head. And it’s true. Have you noticed? It only takes one person to think that someone (or something) is […]

    Judging

    Posted on October 19, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about judging those around us. We all do it. We all will keep doing it. But if we can remember that we don’t really know what’s going on unless we “walk in that person’s shoes,” we can tweak those judgemental attitudes just a bit. We won’t be perfect–but we can be […]

    Not Social

    Posted on September 16, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about not being social. I’m not that social. Like I said in my previous post, I’m an introvert. I flee from crowds and savor time alone. It’s me time–and it matters. Sometimes I just don’t want to go out; sometimes I just feel like crowds will kill my soul. (Okay, that […]

    A Change in Personality?

    Posted on August 24, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about a change in personality. I think that happened to me. No, I’m not talking about bipolar disorder or multiple personalities. I am talking about one’s personality changing as they grow older. Let me explain. As a kid, I was outgoing and gregarious, always ready to meet new friends. In fact, […]

    Listen to a sad song

    Posted on August 4, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about happiness. Where do you get happiness? Can you build it? Business Insider seems to think so. And I agree. For those of you who know my daily reading habits, Business Insider is close to the top of the list (that list also includes my guilty but completely legitimate pleasure that […]
