nor·mal·i·ty and grat·i·tude

During this quarantine, I found myself agitated that I was stuck at home, and annoyed that there was not much to do around. It is too early for gardening, we do not have any kids, cannot really go into the mountains or see the friends. You know how it is… I got even bored whenContinue reading “nor·mal·i·ty and grat·i·tude”

Yoga Thoughts

I went to yoga class the other morning. I needed a good stretch after the whole day in a downhill mountain bike park. That morning I absolutely had to go because my shoulder/neck area had given me grief with a sharp shooting pain the whole night. Excessive amount of painkillers, a couple of hours ofContinue reading “Yoga Thoughts”

Job Search Contemplation

This thought passed my brain a couple of times recently.  I do not like my job. I am bored. I am frustrated.  I remember how I felt when I got this job. I was so happy. I was so excited that finally after several years of working in the retail industry, I found something inContinue reading “Job Search Contemplation”

You do you

When I was invited to go on a biking trip and could not make it because I had visitors in town, my friend said: “OK! You do you”. Well…I was expecting to hear something like – “OK, when are you available so that we can make this trip together?”  That response made me upset andContinue reading “You do you”

No, you cannot pet my dog

Saying no to someone makes me feel so guilty, like I immediately offended another person’s feeling . I have lived on this earth for all most 30 years and I am just starting to learn now how to say no Without feeling guilty, and all the thanks to my pup (who is on the coverContinue reading “No, you cannot pet my dog”

Dark thoughts, are they though?

Once someone told me a story about a person who was struck by lightning while taking a shower.  The other day I came back from the camping trip and desperately needed to take one but it was storming really bad outside with lightning and thunder. I just had to rinse off, I couldn’t handle theContinue reading “Dark thoughts, are they though?”

Giving myself a break, literally.

I was just about to walk out of the door to go to the gym and I felt my body ache. I contemplated what to do about that, turned around, took my snickers off and started cooking dinner. I feel like a bag of sand. I feel very tired, weak, achy and sore. I amContinue reading “Giving myself a break, literally.”

Finding my belief

A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being. James E. Faust  I just wanted to start with saying that writing this post was hard. I started writing about one topicContinue reading “Finding my belief”

Recognizing the change

Everyone has a certain image of herself/himself. I have an actual picture in my head when I think about myself. And to be honest, I think that this picture has been out of date for awhile, stuck somewhere when I was in college. I am in my late twenties now and just until recently IContinue reading “Recognizing the change”

Who are you, my friend?

When I commute to work every morning, I like to be in silence. I do not listen to music. Sometimes, I listen to NPR. I do not really like podcasts either. However, I was scrolling through the episodes of this podcast on Castbox the other day and one caught my attention – Episode 77:Continue reading “Who are you, my friend?”
