The past five days have been very difficult due to my health, between the endometriosis symptoms and general chronic pain and lyme disease flaring it was hard to get out of bed the past week, so I basically lately unfourtnely have been stuck in bed at times, thankfully I love film/movies and love editing photographs I have taken. My Mom also has come down with something so I have been helping take care of her but I thought…Continue
Happy Friday everyone!
Today my Mom gave me a journal , a little tiny green notebook with a black stripe that I can fit into my a hand, a pocket journall that my Father gave her.
I am using this journal each day to write the day, what gift I give, and a little bit about…Continue
Today is January 1st, 2013. Today is also day one of my gift giving challenge. I am also challenging myself to give a gift each day of this entire year. =) For the year of 2013. Part of my resolutions.
Today I did a two part like gift for my parents who I live with. I love my parents. See I am twenty-eight and I am also disabled and my parents truly…Continue
I introduced Kaden to an "old-school" (from my junior high days) note-folding method in the letter I send him.
A friend of mine shared this on Facebook. I thought it was beautiful, so I wanted to share it with you, too.
Not sure how I clicked on the button that doesn't allow anyone to comment, but it's fixed now.
Time really got away from me over the weekend. I didn't realize that I hadn't yet blogged about day 6 (Sat) or day 7 (Sun), so today I'll try to keep it…Continue
Ahh, lovely decluttered and clean table. Our poor fruit bowl has been emptied, but will soon again be full. I'm trying to find a…Continue
Yesterday was relatively cool (low 70s rather than mid-90s), so I spent some time weeding my corner garden. One…Continue
This afternoon I let the kids play with some colored hair glue we bought a while ago. Logan's is hard to…Continue
A couple of my lilies opened today. Yay!…
It has been a while since I have posted. Exactly 18 days. I was on my 20th consecutive day since that last post. A lot has happened in that time. I have definitely experienced this round much differently than the others. A metamorphosis is still happening, I think these giving challenges just change you inevitably. However, this round, has been centered around myself. Even though most days I had others as my focus, the last days of this round really changed me. Let me…Continue
Woke up to my monthly visitor. I do not like when she comes. Draining me of all my energy. I wish I could say after all these years her visits have gotten easier. Sadly, she only seems to get more demanding with time.
That bitch. ;)
Needless to say, I was tired and it appears I am also catching a cold. Thank God these circumstances are only temporary. My gift today was to my son. Because of the aforementioned happenings, I was contemplating canceling our plans…Continue
It's been a minute since I have been here. How the days added up so quickly I do not know. I have had you with me. I've had this challenge with me. It may seem strange but I have been giving a lot to myself. Really just giving myself the chance to be well. Really well. I am digging around inside. Asking questions, listening for answers. I am giving myself the opportunity to grow. To grow out of all my preconceived notions. This is scary. Telling you it's scary is scary. I got a massage on…Continue
Today I reached out to some beautiful girls that have been on my radar for some time. There has been something about their presence, their aura, the way they communicate, that has attracted me. I know them, but don't really know them. They have been on my peripheral. Do you know what I mean? Have you had people like this?
Well I reached out to them today and one of them answered the phone which laid ground for a great chat. It was nice to touch base and interact just sharing…Continue
Hello friends, so much to share. So much love from this giving. I will not be writing this post chronologically but rather as I remember the gives. I have one stand out memory just burning to be shared. This one really touched me to the core. While out on a drive with Tony it had come to me that I had not intentionally given yet for that day. Moments after that thought crossed my mind we found ourselves at a red light waiting to get on the freeway. A gentleman with one arm and no teeth was…Continue
My manager Nancy is a sweet lady and I like to help her out. This day that meant giving her some information she was asking for.
At an audition I held the elevator for a girl that was approaching and handed her a new sign in sheet since my signature filled up the one that was being used.
During this same audition I assisted casting a bit with a mix up that had occurred with other actors in the room.
Facilitated a meeting for some friends and I.
Did a little…Continue
It's funny that this could be a gift. It seems like a given, something that should be happening all the time. Yet, I can honestly say that during my 1st Giving Challenge and now again on my 3rd, I do feel that really interacting has been a great gift. Today I indulged in it on many different occasions. Here are some of the ways...
Initiating intimacy with my husband. Really seeing him throughout the day. Playfully. Joyously.
Greeting people as we passed each…Continue
Today has been a stellar day. I got lots of work done in my home office and I sure did appreciate that because I am not as akin to being at my desk for long periods of time like I used to be. Plus, I just felt great! The weather was wonderful, and I was filled with the promise of giving love. So that's what I did and this is how it turned out...
I woke and reached out to friends wishing them a wonderful day and expressing my love for them.
I went to shoot a…Continue
I hope all the Mother's enjoyed their Mother's Day weekend! Big hugs to all.
Day 4, 5/12: It had been a while. My son had been creating space between us and I was letting him. His call pleasantly surprised me and I gave him my honesty and compassion. I also gave it a good fight when it came to getting down to what was bothering him. I was a stand for our bond and for seeing it continue to grow. We were both rewarded.
My daughter, bless her…Continue
Hello there, I hope you're well. Today my giving came about when I went out on an audition. I was able to help 3 or 4 fellow actresses with information on what we needed to do and where we needed to be. I wish I could say I gave more but as I recount my day, there isn't too much more I can think of.
However, I would like to report on the delicious amount of receives I well, received..
Having an audition today. Lovely.
Getting a discounted Thai dinner…Continue
