Anxiety, you motha shut yo'mouth!

I haven't been here in a little bit.  I'm not happy about that.  To be honest, I've just been overwhelmed.  From the holidays yes, like most people, but also with life.  By no means is it of serious nature, but I have found myself struggling with anxiety like no other.  Apparently, I manifest stress and angst physically more than I ever have and the outcome is lack of motivation for creative expression.  A bit backwards, no?  Creative expression is linked to numerous studies/reports proving that it helps eliminate anxiety.

For some reason, I have chosen to worry about anything I can get my mind hands on the last few months more than ever.  Health, ambitions, how life plays out-all of it worries me.  I've let my mind become overtaken being a worry rat versus putting that energy towards positive output.  Mind you, I've been blessed with good health and happy check ups, my professional ambitions are at all new heights, and when I push away negative thinking and just be, I appreciate the life in front of me instead of fretting what if's.

I have to snap the angst gone.  It leaves with 2015.  I am a creative, I am never happier than when a project comes to life.  So no fancy resolutions here.  Just good old fashioned getting back to it and giving my blog the love and attention I deserve to give it.  It's good for me.

After all, it's best all around when I'm wheeling and dealing and doing.  Happy 2016, friends.  As the wise Kevin Gnapoor from Mean Girls once said: let's do the damn thang.

Let's meet again,
M

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
