Another Lifestyle

14 Feb

I don’t think a person is vain or shallow because she takes care of herself.  I am a fine one to talk.  I finally went to a beauty shop and had my hair dyed.   I felt like a new person.  That’s what it’s about renewing oneself and making the best of oneself.

I haven’t been to the nail shop in about three months.  My toenails and fingernails are looking raggedy.  That’s the next thing I have to take care of.  Get a pedicure and manicure please.

I may visit the mall and shop for a couple of new pants and dress for the spring.  However I am taking my time because I can be a bit of a shopaholic. However I know that before the week is over I’ll be at my local drugstore for my stash.  My stash are the things I stock up on for the week.  Among these are cosmetics and fun things like magazines and CD’s.  This is a kind of renewal and a fun thing.  Well this may not seem important but I just wanted to share some tips with you.

Finding Your Place

14 Dec

I can’t say one place I lived since I may be a composite of all.  I sometimes think of the place I grew up in.  However I know that it is not the same and sometimes we think of the past better or worst.  I find myself dreaming about a place that doesn’t exist.

It is peaceful with close friends.  Then I think of all the crime and fear of trusting others. That place I long for in the past no longer exist.  I have to live now and not in the past.  Making the best of now and finding the good is the place I may make.  I have to find my place now.  I will enjoy and maybe make now the place I should be, whether it is to make it better somehow and enjoying that.

Admire

31 Jul

I admire the people who aren’t heard but are good citizens and make the country better by being just that.

I admire those silenced voices who struggle everyday with that awful illness of depression, put in a gloom but struggle to get out of bed in the morning.  Those who struggle just to do simple  task inn their household, who can’t explain why it’s such a struggle and that they may not seem to do as much, even some days they let the struggle get them and stay in bed.

I admire those who don’t give up but keep trying to cope and remain as active as they can be.  Those who do things for others and donate their time to help children, the poor, etc.  They do this just out of the goodness of their hearts and not to be recognized or praise.  May we always be thankful to you .Yes I admire those who suffer in silence and those unsung heroes in our communities.

Darkness

8 Jul

 

It hit me like a ton of bricks.  I can’t stand to get out of bed in the morning.  If only I could wake up full of energy, happy to start another day.  I pray that it will leave.  It’s like a demon from hell that wants to hold me down and does.

Sometimes the darkness leaves and I am happy and bubbly but afraid knowing it will come back  Is it that I am afraid to be.happy that I think I have to suffer?  I know it’s not so because God wants us to be happy .  I just don[t know how to stop these guilt filled thoughts and the hate which these thoughts are but they are not me.

You’re Not Looking

25 May

There’s a land that has flowers in the yards and well kept lawns.  Church bells ring with gratitude and blessings for the life the people may have.  There are blue birds and red birds in the yards of these people.  God sends the beauty to them and they appreciate them.

There is plenty of food.  You pass one street with lots of fast food places  Some of the people don’t stop there.  They go to grocery stores where there is plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables..

Just  join them and embrace them and the lifestyles    You will share in the blessings and the lifestyle.

What I Am Doing Now

4 May

I am in a place where I am fighting depression, I have been for a long time.  I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2014.  I had two surgeries to remove the lump and any cancer in the cells.

I try to watch my diet and lose weight, get exercise and practice the tools.  These are some of the tools.  There are other health issues that I fight, my blood sugar going up is one.  I had to give up the sweets to get it down and stay down or I will become diabetic also watch the cholesterol.  I have regular checkups with my Doctor.

I had a mammogram recently and haven’t got the results yet.  I am frightened that it may have come back.  I hate to go through the treatment.

Radiation left me with almost chronic fatigue.  I couldn’t do very much housework or other things after the surgery.  Even now I have days when I feel like I can hardly get out of bed but I know I can’t  give up but I know I have to keep going.  I can’t give in to that state of being.  I have to self talk and know I can fight it.  It’s beautiful when I accomplish a project or housework;

Well that’s all for now.  Maybe later I will share with you the tools I practice.
