I cannot believe how fast January has just flown by. I was still thinking about whether I want to set resolutions or not.

There were enough work deadlines scheduled for … Continue reading 7 Tips for Focused Motivation
I feel broken and that feeling just isn't going away easily. I was tough on myself, gave myself a break, took things one step at a time, and tried many other ways to feel better. Yes, I get through the day (not without difficulty) but this is not the way to progress, get the things … Continue reading Navigating Rock Bottom
Momentum...The reason I love this word and used it in the title is that this is what makes us. The momentum built of what we do everyday regularly in our lives.

The first time I baked chocolate chip cookies, they stayed and cooked as the drops I had put on the baking sheet. The balls of dough looked nothing like the fresh, flat and goeey chocolate chip cookies I had hoped would come out of the oven. So, last week, I found a better recipe and … Continue reading The Cookie Redemption
Today, I read a list of goals that I made for myself 3 years ago. Yes, I did achieve some of them but 10% success rate is not something I want to give myself a pat on the back for. No, my list of goals was not unreasonably out of reach. I also revisited something … Continue reading Becoming More
Puzzles are relaxing and challenging. They are not Netflix or movies. They keep my mind occupied well, challenge me in a different way than the spreadsheets on the job, and also test my motor skills in a different capacity than the keyboard and mouse I am constantly using. If you ask me, adults need more … Continue reading Scaling the Temple of Heaven
From "do what you can" to "I cannot wait to do this". I am actively journaling again and I love it!!! I have eased myself into a simple exercise of writing that is helping me and that I actually feel like reaching out for several times a day.
