3 Things I know

I found myself wondering about what I really know about life at this time of mine. Like, what would I bestow upon a young grasshopper looking for guidance? Totally random thoughts started pouring out of my brain. Some useful, some, not so much.

I can ultimately advise the following insight of 3 things I know about life right now:

1. Floss! It is so important and the true secret behind every thing else dental. I know it can be a pain, un-enjoyable, and maybe gross. Butttt, it is still necessary. Think about it; many other "adult" things are super annoying to stick it out and do and this is no different. This is even more crucial because it's directly related to your personal and physical well-being.

2. College. Should you, shouldn't you? My logic, is to go with it. However, not necessarily right out of high school. Who in the actual hell knows what subject matter they wish to become an expert for at 17 or 18 years old? Exhibit A: I graduated high school convinced I would pursue a major in horticulture and a minor in business, to ultimately open up my own flower shop. Um, hello, allergy ridden your whole life. Really? You're gonna make plants grow? Pretty plants? Sure...I digress.

College is definitely a good more than an evil. Yes, even the student debt part of the scenario. I say take it with stride and with intention. Pay it back while in school along the way if you can. More often than not, I would encourage someone to pursue higher education because it does separate the pack and it does promote confidence in a person. Also, in college, you will meet so many people. Human interaction will never occur the same way again. Just trust me, you'll meet some characters. All kinds of them.

3. Clean eating. This is something that always has me learning and growing for well-being. I'll keep this simple and let an expression I heard before explain it best:

Pin found here
My only gripe with this, is the fact the girl in the pic is eating what appears to be a cupcake. This insinuates a cupcake is not good to enjoy. Let's be clear: moderation is key, friends. It can be a difficult task at times, but maintain your diligence. The rest of this expression is dead on though.


That's it for today's random thought session. Come back again to see if I think I know the key to solving the Black Dahlia once and for all.

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.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
