Hurt so Good

Happy Saturday!!  What's everyone got going this weekend? I am kid-less this weekend! One of my friends started doing aerial yoga a couple weeks ago.  She talked me into going with her last night.  I booked the class on Thursday morning before I could talk myself out of it, and I spent the next 24+...

Remembering to be Thankful

Like most millennials, I destroyed the napkin industry, Applebees, and I remember 9/11 in detail.  For me, I was in college, sleeping off an all nighter...of drinking, I'm sure.  My uncle called me and told me to turn on the TV.  I was so confused, hungover, and I turned on the TV to watch the...

The Liar in fAILuRe

I’ve had two concepts in my mind.  The first is: Anxiety is fear in disguise.  The second is: Anxiety is a great teacher if you allow it.  I read “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield, and he was talking about fear, anxiety, depression, etc. all being forms of resistance.  The urge to create versus...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #2

Yesterday's Post here One of the most difficult aspects of managing Bipolar is relationships.  Looking back on my life, I've always had friendships where it's almost immediate enmeshment, toxic, goes nuclear, and ends.  For most of my life, people would cut me out.  I would find myself begging people to forgive me or constantly seeking...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #1

Mental Health Awareness month has prompted me to start a new blog category.  To be honest, it's been on my mind, because it is my mind.  I've realized, though, over the past few months, that attempting to separate mental illness from being a Mom is like attempting to separate my left cheek from my right....

Do You Believe in Magic…?

That damn song has been stuck in my head all day.  Following up on Finding Center and Book Club!  I'm almost done The Universe Has Your Back.  I am also doing the daily work of "Miracles May Happen" I actually am staying on Day 3, because it's been very difficult for me, and it's providing me a lot...
