Don't just live in the world

I’m doing this creating challenge through January to encourage myself to get my hands dirty a little more often, and today’s prompt was “What does belonging mean to you?” So while I was doing my morning pages – another habit I’m trying to get in to – I started thinking about that. What does it …

I have been trying to dive into my creativity. I need it – it’s an anti-depressant for me. When I get into it I can lose myself, lose time. I want to say that I was very creative as a kid – I remember trips to Wallack’s, painting, sketching, lots of writing – but at …

I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a post about a contest and part of each entry was choosing a word that will define your 2021, and I realized that’s a thing I usually do for the new year – even if I still can’t believing it’s approaching so quickly. I also realized that I …

It feels like I’m making plans for January too early, but it is – unbelievably – right around the corner. We’re now on lockdown for the next month or so, and I’m thinking about the projects I’ve got ahead of me. I’ve now got a goal of not spending any money through the month of …

I am a true crime fan. I started reading about ghosts, aliens and murderers when I was pretty young. There were Time Life books that I took out of the library multiple times. I read about unsolved crimes and watched Robert Stack on Unsolved Mysteries. I learned about serial killers – the Zodiac, the Manson …

I’m reading the book Embrace Your Weird by Felicia Day and I’ve gotten to a section where she asks you to think about your childhood in various stages and she asks questions. When it comes to life as a very small child I remember mostly generalities – my dad left, we moved, we went swimming …

I’ve been thinking a lot about the second part of our quarantine. We’re not officially shut down in the city, but our family is certainly going back to stage one. There are cupboards and drawers that I sorted in March that I’m going to be re-organizing again. There are goals I set myself that I’m …

Rock, hard place

Sometimes I feel stuck between identities. It’s ingrained in me, because I grew up with one sister but I’m also the youngest of five. I have also become a lot of things I didn’t expect, and tried to be things I could never have been. The title of mother still surprises me sometimes. I have …

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window

I’ve been putting a playlist together since last night. Late 60s into the 70s. A specific sound of song that fits my mood just now. Gloomy. Halloween appropriate, I guess. It’s the mix of another thing my kid doesn’t get to do this year, anger at all the people still not taking it seriously, and …

Paused

It is the legend of the supermom. She knows all. She can be everything to everyone. She can be everywhere at once. Except I can’t. In the middle of working and parenting, and selling a house, and trying to treat myself properly, I tend to fall by the wayside. I have lost myself in the …
