Falling Behind Again

I am falling behind again on posting here daily especially my OA posts.  The last few days have not been good for my OA abstinence and step work.  I sometimes wonder if I do actually want this – if I do actually want to change my relationship with food.  It is like I set myself up to fail.

I need to get better at time management. Read more…

*****************************
Today I am having a few good moments and a few not so good moments mixed in throughout the day.  I know, intellectually, this is probably the norm for most people.  Emotionally, it feels like an intense roller coaster ride.   I may be 58 years old but I still believe I can, with help, rewire my brain on many levels.   I do have ADHD and supposedly a lower spectrum Read more…

Simplicity – with a capital “S”

“As we live and as we are, Simplicity – with a capital “S” – is difficult to comprehend nowadays. We are no longer truly simple. We no longer live in simple terms or places. Life is a more complex struggle now. It is now valiant to be simple: a courageous thing to even want to be simple. It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means.”
― Frank Lloyd Wright, The Natural House

Simplicity, Patience, & Compassion

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

source: Lao Tzu, Tao Teh Ching

Simplicity – Achievable?

I long for a simple life.  I tend to complicate my life.  No matter how hard I try to simplify my life, I always end up complicating it somehow someway.   I gave up the Steampunk Festival.  I have said no to requests that I run for various things in town.  I have said no to reinvigorating my neighborhood association.  My plan was to just #1 visit with my grandkids | #2 nurture my relationship | #3 go to my day job and one day retire from there | #4 continue writing at least one weekly article for the Springfield Reporter |#5 continue my quest to declutter.    This seems so Read more…

Another Beginning

I know early in a previous post from a while ago, I said this was the beginning.  Well I didn’t fare very well in my quest.  But I am back again.  When I say I am on a journey to a healthier lifestyle, I don’t just mean I want to lose weight.  I do, indeed, want to be healthier, physically, mentally, emotionally, environmentally, etc.  I am working on many things. I recently joined OA and am beginning to work the steps with a sponsor.  I continue to declutter my areas at home and love the feeling of purging “stuff.”  I am working on my Read more…
