going simple.

It is kind of a weird thing. I spent so much time being worried I couldn’t come up with posts that people would want to read that I stopped writing all together. I didn’t want that. I have come to the conclusion I should stop worrying about everyone else, & write for myself. Isn’t that the point?

This year has been a sort of turning point for me. Changes on a lot of fronts. I’ve decided to make firm steps to being healthier. I have lost about 29lbs, I’m training (slowly, due to medical issues) for a RunDisney 5K next year, I’ve changed my diet a lot, going for a mostly pescatarian/vegetarian lifestyle. & I am making changes in my personal life. Choosing to not keep the toxic, dead branches to cling to my tree; instead I’m cutting them loose so that new growth can occur. I’ve had several people out of my life & realized they were causing me to drown. I’m also learning to accept things about myself that I have struggled with. Like the fact I don’t always belong, or that I’m kind of an odd person. That being lonely is sometimes a state of mind that I have to deal with & that true growth comes from God & comes from within. These truths are paving the road ahead for me.

Most of all, I am trying to simplify my life. In all aspects. I have started decluttering my house, my life, my thoughts. I want a sanctuary in every sense of the word. Simplifying the stuff is a hard process, & slow. But I will get my house in order. It might just take some time. The rest will fall into place.

I am in a good place, overall. I am happily married. We are on a firm foundation & trust levels are high. I am still deeply in love. It is indeed a happy wife, happy life.

Happy is my goal. & I’m blooming towards it.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
