Figuring out all the world's problems

Category Archives: Daily Thoughts

I’ve been thinking about titles lately. Not just the ones we get at work but all the ways we label ourselves. The labels we hold dear and the ones we should ditch from our brain Rolodex.

Here are the ones I hold dear:
– Auntie
– friend
– sister
– daughter
– niece
– smart
– fur momma
– loyal
– fan

Here are some I should ditch:
– procrastinator
– collector
– nagger
– worrier
– anxious

So, why do we hold onto the titles we don’t need? I do because they define me as much as the good ones. I know they don’t always serve the best purpose in my life but they even out all the perfect.


Really? Because it is hard to get rid of the not so positive ones. I am trying to get to the point when I learn to minimize them.

I think it is good to think about the ones we hold dear. Why do they mean so much? Can you rank them? I did and realized that is how I think of myself. I’m an excellent auntie and friend (mostly). My connections are very important to me and I pride myself in them.

What are the titles you use to define yourself?


When you finally put yourself out there, life can get crazy. But in a good way. Hoping that these areas will spill over into other areas. 🙂

So, today has been a strange day for me. Found out all the food choices I’ve making are paying off.

I lost 11 pounds in a month!

I’m very proud of myself. I have never done anything like this before – so I’ve actually taken today to brag about myself.

Oh yeah, new food love is the house-made dill pickles from Greenlife.

YUMMY goodness!!!

Now I have to find recipes to make them myself.

Thanks, Alice! You have me doing stuff like that.

So, I decided to blog every day for Lent. Then I got sick. Well, my sinuses are acting up in this crazy Chattanooga weather. Which makes me wanna take meds, curl up and sleep.

But, Lent just started and I hate to fail. So, I am trying. A wise friend sorta laughed at me when I told her about my blog challenge. “Good luck,” she said. I fear she may be right. But I’m gonna fight hard!
