Blogtober 2014: One Thing You Can't Live Without

The Daily Tay

Alright day 3 of Blogtober! Whoo! Let's just keep on RSVPing to this partay!!

This is an interesting topic, peeps. The first thing that popped in my mind would be an emotional "thing" and that thing is gratitude. I believe in the power of finding something good in every situation. I was just discussing this with my boss today and we both acknowledged a want to be find more gratitude in every moment. Life gets hard, and yes, some moments can be less than desirable, but even in these instances, there is opportunity to stand back and feel the power of gratitude. So that is my short and sweet, to the point, deep thought of the day.

Now, to reflect on one physical thing I cannot live without, I'm going to be real honest here: my phone. My god, I love my phone. It allows connectivity to every part of my life; I can reach any of my family and friends any time, access my fave social medias like Twitter and Instagram right in the palm of my paw, and even the simplest of things like the notebook function keeps me giddy. I enjoy this technology more than any other and it's safe to say I would barter one of the dogs for the use of my phone. Okay, I'm kidding. Maybe :)

Be back tomorrow with one of my top 3 favorite topics of all for this writing challenge!

Until we meet again,

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.
