Transformation Tuesday: Controlling my Emotions

Hello 👋 reader and welcome to my blog! Today I’m going to talk about my lifelong efforts to control my emotions. I’ve always been over sensitive, and over emotional. I’ve always been full of insecurities and fears about not fitting in and I’ve always reacted rather than responded (later on I found out I hadContinue reading “Transformation Tuesday: Controlling my Emotions”

Storytime: How can I motivate my son to learn?

I sit here at 10:30pm, tea cup in my hand (too late for coffee) while I contemplate my parenting techniques. I have the habit of trying to convince my son to do what I want by bribing him with things he wants, then when that doesn’t work, I start threatening to remove a privilege orContinue reading “Storytime: How can I motivate my son to learn?”

Storytime: Day 3 of total lockdown

It’s day 3 of the total lockdown and I’m telling you it’s hard. Not because I’m not getting much of my goals done. Not because I can’t leave the house. Not because I’m moody and keep trying to tell myself “I am calm and in control of my emotions”. But because I have to walkContinue reading “Storytime: Day 3 of total lockdown”

Happy Monday 🙃

Good morning! How are you doing today? I have a migraine as usual.

I feel like “who amContinue reading “Happy Monday 🙃”

Staying happy while social distancing

Hello 👋 how are you doing lately? I know a lot of countries are in lockdown now, including the UK and Australia, maybe even parts of the USA. Meanwhile, other areas are undergoing certain restrictions. I know there is too much negativity on the news, so I try to steer clear of these topics hereContinue reading “Staying happy while social distancing”

Unfiltered thoughts

I have racked my brain today thinking what I should blog about, and I got nothing. My blogs have become orchestrated symphonies, organized series, not all over the place. You got me. I’m a phony. A liar. Pretending I’m all put together when I’m not. Or was I pretending? I’m not sure of the illusionContinue reading “Unfiltered thoughts”

Are you living in your comfort zone?

Disclaimer: I think we are all uncomfortable at the moment. Some of us are in panic mode (fear zone), some in the learning zone, and the few of us experiencing growth are the lucky ones. I think I generally fluctuate between comfort zone and fear zone. I’ve been called out about that several times. EveryContinue reading “Are you living in your comfort zone?”
