On Meditation and Expressing Gratitude

The challenges from last week went very well! That's especially true for the sleep challenge. I'm in much better moods lately because of the improvements to my quality of sleep. I'm also very pleased with my productivity in work and all my other responsibilities here at home. I'm really glad I was able to meet... Continue Reading →

Overwhelmed But Present

I've been feeling very overwhelmed for the past few weeks. Maybe even longer than that. I have a lot of items on my to-do list and I feel like I just can't get a good grasp on many of them. I'm doing a lot of things but I'm not doing them well, or as well... Continue Reading →

My wellness challenge for November was to practice gratitude, and I was particularly focused on being more grateful for the home... Continue Reading →

Do Hard Things

It has been a challenging week! That was an understatement. I had difficulty sleeping every single night this week. I had insomnia a couple nights where I woke around 2 AM and had trouble returning to sleep. When I did sleep, I would wake feeling like I didn't get any rest. These sleep issues are...

Remembering God and His Word

Last week, I shared what I learned from session one - Meditate - of Illustrated Faith's Word Nerd devotional kit. This week, I'm in session two which is titled Remember. It talks about the importance of remembering what God has done and said. It also relates back to session one because meditating on God's word... Continue Reading →

A Prescription for Happiness

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was anticipating a challenging week. Well, it was that indeed! There were migraines. Sleep issues. Extreme fatigue and more. The worst of it was that I accidentally spilled water on my laptop and it fried. Thankfully, my files were recovered, but it's taken a while to get... Continue Reading →
