This month's challenge was to take time every day to read for pleasure. I recognize that to some it might seem silly having this as a challenge. I love to read, and one would think that because I love to read that I do it often. Unfortunately, that's not the case. My job makes it … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Read!!
Yes, Tai Chi. This month, my goal was to practice Tai Chi every day. Why Tai Chi? Because I need to be the next Patrick Swayze in Roadhouse! Duh. Lol no. I’ve been wanting to learn Tai Chi for years so decided this would be the perfect time. I chose this for November knowing that … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Tai Chi!
To some, it may seem silly that I picked a challenge like this: go outside for 30 minutes every day. But honestly, I’m amazed at how easily I’ve become somewhat of a shut-in. I go to work; I come home, and I may never leave the house again until the next morning when I go … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days: Get Outside!
I am a teacher. This means a lot of different things to me, but the biggest one is that my work-life balance is non-existent for about 10 months of the year. These last few years it’s been closer to 12 since I was moving and transitioning every summer. What I do have, I fight for … Continue reading 10 months of 30 days…
There's an itch for change that I get every year around this time, and every year for the last 20, it's been scratched. Not this time. For the first time in 20 years, I am not moving into a new home, applying for jobs, interviewing, or changing my position. For the first time, I'm staying … Continue reading There’s a First for Everything…
If you’ve been following my blog at all, you know a couple things: 1) I just came full circle back to the place I always wanted to be to start my dream job, and (2) in order to do that, I moved into my 41st home. I want to make that clear because I need … Continue reading Murphy can take his law and shove it
When this publishes, I will already be at my destination and moved into my new place 1900 miles from where I sit writing this. I’m a little more than 12 hours away from hopping in the big truck to tow my car and everything I own across the country…again, for the umpteenth time. I can’t … Continue reading On the Road Again…
I’ve spent the last 13 years on one hell of a personal development journey, always trying to learn and grow, in the hopes of being better each day than I was the day before. (Some days have been better than others to say the least). There have been many points throughout that time where I … Continue reading Fearing the Dream
If you've read any of my past blogs (the 38th move, Comfortable Misery, etc), you know how I have always felt about the place I moved away from. Which is why it’s so crazy for me to write that I’m going back. I can hear you now... “what the f*#k, you say?!” I get it. … Continue reading Coming Full Circle
I recently returned from a two-week road trip down the east coast. I decided after a two-year hiatus from my solo trip (one because of Covid) that it was time to start it up again at a different resort. If you've read any of my previous posts about my solo vacation you'll know why. Since … Continue reading 3341 miles/ 1376 songs/ 2 weeks
