Lots of adjusting last year and this year. Hopefully we can find some good change out of it 🙂

Commented on / New Beginnings… And… Back to Normal?

That is wonderful AJ - I'm glad you found your love for blogging again!

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

You are welcome Cristina!

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

You are welcome Raji! Thanks for stopping by!

Commented on / New Beginnings… And… Back to Normal?

Me too - I need my comfort zone too!

Commented on / How Do You Live Life: Comfort is a Must or Life is an Endless Adventure?

i like that - a "season of love!"

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

That is pretty darn hot!! A happy medium would be nice 🙂

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

I look forward to summer with glee as well 🙂

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

I can see how that would be your least favorite. I would love to go to Jamaica though - maybe on the not super hot days though 🙂

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

Yes, layers, layers, layers, definitely! 🙂

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

A different lens - a perfect way of putting it!

Commented on / New Beginnings… And… Back to Normal?

Agreed!! Thanks for sharing Kelly Diane!

Commented on / New Beginnings… And… Back to Normal?

Oh - I'm sorry to hear that about the summers but glad to hear the winters are picking up 🙂

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

Thanks Emily - that's awesome that you've enhanced your language skills

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Spring is indeed always a day closer 🙂

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

THere are some fun outdoor activities but for me the cold ruins it... 🙁

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

That makes perfect sense! I've been to Africa - it gets very very hot!

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

Oh I'm so jealous! I"m in MN

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

You certainly aren't... counting the days til Spring!

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

Oh - I do envy you. Much better driving and temperatures in FL

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

Aren't they the best!

Commented on / Winter Is Here…

I've never heard of that - I'll have to check it out!

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

I'm a wait til it's almost dead girl. so I'll be owning my 11 for a while 🙂

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I"m glad you enjoyed it Kate!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

Thanks - hope you have too! 🙂

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Unfortunately we are still in pandemic mode, so on the good side it's not too late to find a new hobby 🙂

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Baking has been fun for me. I wish I had done more reading... well, there's still time left, I guess.

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Good point about the fixes to any problems with getting a bit older version!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

Reading is such a great past time! Excellent choice!

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

So fun, isn't it!!

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Wow - that is quite the accomplishment. A whole new language!

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Yes, agreed! I do buy cars new but phones a year old...

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

It is a ton of fun - I've gotten a huge jump start on mine already and I love it! It goes quicker than you would think it would with all those dots

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

Thanks Fadima!! New hobbies are so fun!

Commented on / The Pandemic and New Hobbies

I'm the same - I only buy when my old one is literally dying. Which makes the new phone seem all the better!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

My brother is an android fan too - the price point is great, as you mention

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

Yes, esp. after watching this show you see how much "waste" we create. It's a very educational along with entertaining show

Commented on / Mountain Men

I did the same - I love it too!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I did too - I had a 6S and wow is this 11 great!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

Thanks for sharing your comments Sandra Ans. Love that you stop by often!

Commented on / How Do You Live Life: Comfort is a Must or Life is an Endless Adventure?

They are expensive but I use mine so much I find it worth the splurge!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I got the 11 but I am curious how the 12 is different

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I hear you - that's what it took for me to get my new one

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

Fantastic Hayley - enjoy your new phone!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I hear the 10 is pretty good! Yes, I wonder what the 13 will be like!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I have to admit I'm a huge Apple fan - I love their products!

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

I love my 11 as well, I just have the regular 11 though

Commented on / The New iPhones: To Buy or Not to Buy

Wishing you the same Sara James!

Commented on / How Do You Live Life: Comfort is a Must or Life is an Endless Adventure?

I understand Fiona. I have a chronic illness and have found choosing comfort helps me manage the chaos of my illness

Commented on / How Do You Live Life: Comfort is a Must or Life is an Endless Adventure?

Me too Lauren! I'm somewhere in the middle.

Commented on / What Does Autumn Mean to You?

It definitely makes sense Hayley - I have a chronic illness too and it certainly does add extra challenges to this!

Commented on / Choose Your Self-Narrative Wisely

I too have a lot of physical health problems as well. I do still encourage you to try to identify when you are having negative self-talk and to at least top it, if not turn it around. It's so worth it, if you can manage it at the time.

Commented on / Choose Your Self-Narrative Wisely

Very well said Carrie!

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

I agree - hanging onto to negativity won't help us in any way.

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

Glad you enjoyed it Natasha! 🙂

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

Forgiving and forgetting is definitely two different things - thanks for bringing both up. I think that forgiving is about your own decision to release the pain; forgetting is a whole different decision.

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

Great points Mrs. P&P! Thanks for sharing!

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

Oh - I LOVE that quote! Thanks for sharing that with us!

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

Absolutely Sandra Ans!

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

I completely agree Kelly - foregiveness is so much better of a route to go if you can manage to do so. It's certainly not always easy.

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

It sure does - it's such a release of the weight of anger

Commented on / Forgiveness is About Being Nice to Yourself

I hear you Shirsha - saying no doesn't come easy to me either; it's a work in progress. 🙂

Commented on / Brain Overload

Good for you Helen - it sounds like you are handling this very challenging situation very well.

I hear you - it's been a challenging year for sure!

Commented on / Finding Your Own Happiness

It sure does - it's well worth the investment!

Commented on / Another New School Year

While I do tend to still multi-task - I do do it less often as I keep hearing pacing and one task at a time is more productive. So I think your comments and strategies are spot on

Commented on / Another New School Year

It's definitely a start - enjoy the journey! 🙂

Commented on / Finding Your Own Happiness

I do too at times... esp. if it's an undesirable task!

I completely agree - there's so much talent and specialness within each of us.

Commented on / You are Unique: Please Share!

Those are great insights for those with illnesses that do not just land in someone's lap for no reason at all. I would give anything to change my circumstances if that would change my illness. I completely agree that if ones illness is caused by their circumstances and they can change them, evaluating one's options are a definite must.

Commented on / Working with a Chronic Illness

It's a fun little experiment!

Thanks Scott - I completely agree with the sentiments that you have shared. It's in my nature too - and a hard habit to break. But a good one to break for our own sanity at times! 🙂

Good for you Karen - I need to get to the place you are at with being comfortable saying no

Commented on / Brain Overload

Thanks Dan - I hear you. That is where mine is at right now

Commented on / Are Reality Shows Real?

I hadn't thought of sports that way but that actually is the ultimate reality show - at least most sports 🙂

Commented on / Are Reality Shows Real?

I agree - it's very hard to know what is real or scripted.

Commented on / Are Reality Shows Real?

I can certainly see how that would turn you off to them! It loses it's entertainment value if you can't buy-into the program

Commented on / Are Reality Shows Real?

I completely agree Hayley - they always find a way to entertain us, completely real or not.

Commented on / Are Reality Shows Real?

Very interesting - thanks for sharing Sophie!

Your post so resonated with me Hayley - I am on a very high potato diet and my doctor has limited me to 3000 steps due to my health condition. It sounds like you have already figured out the magic to this whole thing.

Commented on / Losing Weight When You Can’t Work Out

I completely agree - a walk can not only be exercise but great self-care!

I'm sorry to hear that luck has not come your way - perhaps though it's all your hard work that is overriding any luck and you are creating all your own successes. THere's a lot to be said for that.

Commented on / It’s Not All About Luck; It’s About You!

I most definitely think this is an act of kindness - I think it falls, from your description, as one of the harder acts of kindness. Oftentimes, those are the most valuable kinds, even if you don't see/hear the value from the other. They may still feel it.

Yes, I know many people that feel more comfortable "winging it" - less stress for them and their statements come out sounding less rehearsed.

Both great strategies Jen!! Practicing out loud is key as when you practice in your head you tend to go too fast. Practicing out loud replicates what you will be doing in the interview and better prepares you.

Commented on / Happiness: What You Seek You Shall Find

I agree that it's idealistic but there's some truth in thinking that way - studies have shown that happiness does come in more abundance to those that think positively. 🙂

That definitely is a choice to make - sometimes the highs make the lows seem lower. I choose happiness accepting that the lows may seem lower because the highs are so great! It also makes the lows more manageable - knowing that that more happiness is on its way

Smiles are contagious - they totally count and do create that ripple effect 🙂

Commented on / The Power of One

It can be hard to do but you will be better off it you push to the productive side of things. A trick I often use is to put my worries on a piece of paper and set it aside in my mind and literally. When i come back to it, I often find I can toss the paper away. But in the meantime there's comfort in knowing I won't forget about it because it's on that paper and if I need to think further on it I will remember to.

Thank you April - you brought a refreshing perspective to this article. I completely agree with you about how time can affect this. Hopefully this does help us all make time to cry when we need that release.

I agree with you Olivia. Sometimes if we bottle up our emotions they come out in unhealthy ways - or are simply unhealthy to our internal selves. Neither is good. 🙁

That is an interesting way of looking at it. Crying can be sooo healing! It's such a release and it's a sign that you are dealing with the issue in the moment that you are ready to do so. Thanks for sharing Lisa.

Yasinta - that's a great point! Crying can be a release leading to comfort as well.

I agree - it's great to share your successes - and celebrate them with your friends. As you said, people tend not to share the bad things (understandably) - as long as we keep that in mind, I think it can help.

Social media certain does have a tendency to present a shaded view - as long as we keep that in mind, we are ahead of the game. 🙂

I hear you Lisa - sometimes it can get a bit much! Facebook has it's benefits but it also has some drawbacks, for sure. Lisa

Very true - it's good to keep in mind that the triggers can come potentially from both ends. Thanks for sharing Jen, Lisa

Corrine - that's exactly what I do. Follow the accounts that uplift us (and my family updates) and ignore the rest.

I hear you Unwanted Life - the new algorithm that Facebook now uses has been disliked by many. Many of us are not seeing the things we want to see first or at all. Another reason to do what you are doing - proactively tailoring what you do see and ignoring the rest. I like to "see first" my favorite sites like Myneedtolive and other positive sites so I can see exactly what I want and ignore the rest if I don't want to see it. Thanks for sharing!

It's a hard thing to have that kind of confidence, especially when it's foreign territory. I find that small steps really helps in these moments! And (easier said than done) simply trusting yourself.

It is, isn't it Charlotte! Often time will tell. That's why I think adding some contemplation/analysis before diving in is always a good idea, especially if one is unsure. It's not a perfect process, but it often does the trick. 🙂
