What Inspires YOU?

Longwalks App

This is such a hopeful, happy quote to start off a new week and Daylight Savings Time (extra coffee??)

Lately, I’ve found myself interested in drawing, painting, and watching BIRDS.


Inspired by artist creating art using birds.

I’m Ready for NORMAL LIFE (Not the current “Normal)

This. This is my “Thank God it’s Friday” face… even though I work Saturdays.

My TGIF Face!

I miss weekends when I got together with friends (plural) for dinner, or coffee, or a movie.

I miss having a social life!

Laughing with friends (or commiserating) lightens our load… and let’s face it, no matter WHO you are the load has been heavy since this time last year.

I’m ready for a return to life of gathering with friends.

Easter is coming and I’m ready to join in the annual tradition of gathering with my friend’s family for food and fun.

Spring is coming… I’m ready for picnics, beach parties, and kids laughter.

I’m ready to not be afraid because I have allergies and my runny nose, sneezing and coughing are going to scare EVERYONE into thinking I have The Plague.

I’m ready to give up the mask! To not feel like I’m constantly choking on my own air to make others feel safe.

I’m ready for CHANGE! Back to the normal I’m used to, not this insanity we are currently living in.

Peace 🥰

Winter 2021: Snow, Snow, and more Snow!

I think we’re making up for the past few years of unusual warm Winters🤣.

Last week: almost 2 feet, today 5-7 inches… we shall see 🤔. The rest of the week is calling for a few inches almost EVERY DAY 😖.

I DO love the snow. The impact it has on my job as a Home Healthcare Scheduler, not so much. The worry over caregivers not getting to clients, clients need care but don’t have anyone to clear driveways. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Definitely having a white winter!

2021: The Year of BALANCE

New Year, New Intentions…

BALANCE is a skill I will be working on and (possibly) perfecting?

Well, progress anyway. 😁

I am working on a few goals right now, small ones:

  1. Reading daily (learning new information)
  2. Regular bedtime: 9:30pm
  3. Regular wake up time: 6am (working toward 5am)
  4. Daily exercise: yoga and/or 30 min Walk
  5. Work structure: start, breaks, stop times

Also, being intentional with my time, my energy, and my friendships.

Do you have an intention for 2021?

If so, what are the steps you are taking to achieve it?
