Seascape Saturday

I read something today on a neurodivergent blog I follow/write for. It said that people with autism, particularly women, have spiritual experiences and intuitive abilities. I've always sort of felt this way, though I'm not sure if the autism label fits for me. I don't feel like labels matter... but experiences do. If you've been [...]

Peace

That's really all I want. Nothing has been reinforced more in 2019 for me than that. I just want to live in a tension free environment and be around people who are transparent. My experiences growing up definitely taught me that money can get you a lot of things, but it can't give you peace. [...]

Wellness Wednesday

I'm leaving for Seattle in a few hours to present at a conference. I would have liked to have had more time to prepare, but it is what it is. Dissertation is such a lonely and isolating process, it's unreal. You do receive help from your committee and mentors for sure... but, everything really all [...]

I have to reflect on yesterday …

I don't know what was going on with me yesterday, but it was proven to me multiple times over that my first thoughts about things are often very negative and wrong. So I was on my way to work (inpatient drug and alcohol rehab center). I work there sporadically. I get a text from a [...]

I can’t sleep

I know there's a time to be professional but I'm becoming much more comfortable expressing myself and not hiding who I really am--- [...]

Blogust 3

I felt very bad earlier today. Making plans often triggers me in ways I don't readily become aware of. I've dealt with flakey people a lot and I'm a firm believer that you should never chase people to hang out with you. If they want to, they will. Period. However, my past and my anxiety [...]

Wellness Wednesday ish.

Wednesdays seem to be the worst day for me to keep up with my blog. Lol. But the alliteration is just too good. I'm currently reflecting on the statement that "good therapists go to therapy." If I haven't always believed that, I absolutely do now. It is so helpful to know yourself well if you [...]
