I'm a blogger, duh!

This is my 300th post!  I have worked so hard to get here.  I haven't been here in this space much the last few months so logging in today and seeing that was like exhaling a smooth ahhhhhh.

Lately I've been working really hard for Social Cap with projects and exploring strategy.  It's definitely been fun, it's been intense and stressful, and I am exhausted any given day.  I read more inspirational quotes and memes than ever before in my life this far as well.  But by God, I am a proud small business owner.

This is what goes into a brand new small business though.  I knew this going in and I stand by the services and work our team does and want to be exhausted.  I want to push and make myself work harder than I ever have to be able to justify all the chaos and all it's taken already this far.

I admit I had to push to come here today but my dear old Ohgabetta page has been on my mind, much like Georgia for Ray Charles.  I've felt a lapse in my own creative expression because I've been so busy with commitments for work and for business.  But my goal for the remainder of this year is to get back to expressing things here with a healthy presence.

Last year at this time, I was participating in Blogtober at this time and wrote all 31 days of the month.  I feel bad I didn't do something like it this year but not going to beat myself up and instead write it up moving forward.

After all, I always come back here.  After every void, I have to get my fill.  Ohgabetta, I just cannot quit you!!!!

Until 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…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
