  • 2018-11-12 Conditioning for Change

    I’m not finding my chi today. I’m wasting 20 minutes at a time with indecision about what to do with my day. This is what happens when you mostly operate in JIT mode (just in time). No work truly needing to get done and nothing pressing for school. I didn’t have enough sleep and I’m […]

  • 2018-04-14 Times, They are a Changin’

    I’m still trying to get over whatever illness took over my body a few days ago. Some slightly annoying symptoms that will not seem to go away. Not enough to keep me from doing stuff, but bad enough to make me just not want to do stuff. I haven’t been at the gym for a […]

  • 2018-03-05 Just a Little “I Told You So”

    “Wait a day”. That’s what I think I said. In truth it could be almost any amount of time. A day, a week, a few hours, a year. Change is inevitable. I woke up this morning to severe overcast and rain. And it’s not that warm spring rain that makes the emerging crocus and daffodils […]

  • 2017-12-18 On Routine and Some Things that Never Change

    I’m now pretty set in my morning routine. I’m a serious creature of habit. One of the things I’ve gotten really used to at this point is going to the gym right after dropping the kids off at school. I was previously not looking forward to starting a new job and having to give that […]

  • 2017-06-23 Now What?

    Four weeks ago when I quit my job it felt scary, but wonderful. I felt as if a huge weight was lifted off me. All the technical debt of the past and all the piles of work in the future were suddenly not going to be my problem anymore. I had resolved to take some […]

  • 2017-05-25 No Day Like Today for a Change

    When I went to sleep last night, it was late and I was tired and I felt completely drained emotionally from the last few days. I’ve been up and down and around the block with these life questions and really felt I was at the end of what I could possibly take. Truth be told, […]

  • 2017-05-20 No Risk, No Reward

    I have a wonderful friend from back in the day. I’m going to call her, Princess KK Now Princess KK is smart, successful, and also quite funny. She’s pretty and clever and lives somewhere not so sunny. We don’t chat very often, in-fact, almost never Because we are far apart and, of course, busy as […]

  • 2017-05-18 The Ledge

    I’m standing on it. I’ve been inching closer and closer in the past few weeks and now I am peering down into the abyss. But I’m no longer scared. I think I’ve had trepidation and fear and somehow in the last week, I have gained the clarity I’ve needed to overcome those feelings and really […]

  • 2017-03-20 It’s All Connected

    I finished writing yesterday’s post at 5:15AM. Which means, I was up at 4 something. Luckily, after it was over, I went back to sleep but the sleep issue is real. The “over-thinking things” issue is real. The “repeating bad patterns of behavior” issue is real. It’s all connected. A few months ago I was […]
