The Start of a Journey

My name is Kaylee and I am starting a new journey. I am going to start today and it is going to last 365 days. I am going to make 2015 the best year that I can. I refuse to waste another year. I will be graduating college, starting a full time job, and really hoping to turn myself into a better all around person. This is going to be my journey of all the things that I experience along the way.My projects for this year are:...more

If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy

You ever have one of those days? One of those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed; One of those days where you’re short and snippy;One of those days where you’re longing to just get the day over with already?...more

Positivity Definitely Pays Off!

basil regrets

I am filled with regret. Not the amount of regret you might have from getting drunk and waking up with a face tattoo. Not quite that much. But still more than the amount of regret you'd have from eating Doritos at bedtime and forgetting to brush your teeth afterwards. Have you ever woken up in the morning with all-night Dorito breath? Regrettable.Today my regret is somewhere in the middle there, and it has to do with not growing enough basil this year....more


A new day of a new month - June.  The morning was overcast and cool.  It was not inviting.  I did not bounce out of bed with glee.  I lingered in the warmth of my bed, hesitating like a shy bride, putting off the inevitable.The inevitable came, of course.  I had to face the music.  I thought it best that I be a sport and do it with gusto.  Life deserved to be treated with respect.  I grabbed Sheba and headed out for an early morning trot....more

When Feeling Sick Becomes The New Norm

For the last few years it’s been one health challenge after another, from chronic sinus problems and a bevy of flu’s, to finding a large (benign and harmless) arachnoid cyst in my brain at the left frontal lobe. Feeling as if I’m juggling one symptom or another and drenching myself in the latest ‘miracle cures’, I have grown weary from the effort required to feel well, and instead have surrendered to the dictates of the symptom(s) de jour....more

A Different Perspective - shifting my attitude

I woke up this morning, and it was difficult to do.  I was pretty much just “not in the mood to get up.”  I concocted a bunch of reasons not to drag myself out of bed until 8:04 am….. trust me, that made getting to work at 8:25 tricky.  I made it, but barely.  I had gotten up at 7:30 to let the dog out (and that would have been plenty of time), but I found this…....more

'Tis The Season To Give Thanks

November 1st.  Halloween is behind us (although I have heard many towns and neighborhoods all across the country rescheduled for tonight, due to inclement weather) but for our intents and purposes, today is officially the beginning of the THANKSGIVING season....more

Good Morning, Attitude

My name is Hannah. I'm 25 (just shy of 26), a college graduate, full time employeed in a managerial type job, happy boyfriend of almost 2 years... and a victim of life. Yes, I said it, I'm a victim of life. Or that's what I have been thinking for the past 3 or so years. It really hurts to say that. I'm the girl that bemoans the fact that I've gained 15 pounds while eating a candy bar, the girl that cries when her boyfriend isn't perfect (even though he is!!!), I'm the girl that hates my job while not doing anything to change it....more
