If we wait until we are ready, we'll be waiting the rest of our lives

I've set a challenge for my writer self, as discussed yesterday, and more specifically that challenge is to adhere to five posts a week. Of course there will be weeks that 3-4 will be the average and that's okay. It's simply a challenge to me, from me and I will aim to meet the bar I am setting as best I can.

I have set up a few themes for days I am at a loss for any other topic to cover. Call it the many writing practices I have gone through throughout my schooling for writing, but I often have found that a, dare I say, "restriction" actually pushes for more creativity.

Really, this is just to get me going on my consistent mojo. These will most def morph into something else but for now this is the blueprint for days when I want to write but need a little self push. Feel free to join in and use the prompts for any of your days:

Monday: If I could...this is where I challenge myself to be brave. Want to say something? Do something? Then get to it and write it out.

Tuesday: Day of Yum. This day is dedicated to the goodness of life and that is the art of eating, cooking, hosting, planning, meal prepping, etc, etc. A picture of a cupcake will suffice too.

Wednesday w/ a cherry on top: Share something that may just be small scale to me but makes the day extra gratifying. This is a good midweek reminder to be present and aware of the good in the world because quite honestly we got enough bad going on.

Thursday: Tell a Tale: This day is one to share something funny, quirky, completely fictitious, a story of sorts.

Friday: My fashion, my heart: I'd say I have a close relationship with fashion. I'm crazy about it; I like it even on the worst days; it gives me happiness. Really, we're committed to each other in a multitude of ways. We just get each other. So needless to say today is the day we shall be fashion focused around here.

To properly kick off the Wednesday prompt:

This Wednesday's cherry on top is green tea. The stuff is good, man. It rejuvenates my soul and is literally my life line these last few, freezing, very cold, Florida days. Here's to more cherries on top of good health!

Til we meet again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
