To Choose a Memory…

I did A Thing. Again. I made my way for the annual Kaleidoscope Gathering to connect and join with hundreds of my friends to celebrate our spiritual communities and share the gifts of Time and Knowledge. I’d had a bit of a snafu getting there this year…but, being the theme was “Cosmos”…I was not going to go down without punching Lupus in the proverbial junk. See, I was leaving three days after yet another, though final, chemo infusion. I was puking up until the night before, after working my shift, after trying to do All The Things to ensure my…

Enter Quote, Stage Left… #HAWMC Day 3

#HAWMC Day 3: “Quotation Inspiration. Find a quote that inspires you (either positively or negatively) and free write about it for 15 minutes.” Holy sweet mother of snickerdoodles, Batman!! GAH! Not that I’m on any kind of pity pot, I’m not. I swear it. But unless you’re coffee or guinea pigs, I really am uncomfortable with the rainbows’n’puppies’n’kittens’n’shit this week. o.O Just the chaos of my reality at the moment, I suppose. Existing at the rate of several “wtf’s” per second. Subsisting on coffee and Clonazepam. This shall pass. It always does. There’s the escapism of pet therapy and “Colour!”…

Friday #gladitude

Well, this was simply the most ridiculous week… …EVER. Between Monday and today, I’ve concurrently managed a fractured orbital bone thingie-part (I’m far too lazy to look it up), a dog fight, a youngling’s asthma attack and the death of a departed whilst contained within the boundaries of starting three college courses and managing the emotions from all of these. That doesn’t make me a goddamn martyr. That simply makes me an ordinary woman doing bat-shit crazy things within the chaos of her reality. Which, admittedly, is a little excessively chaotic at the moment. Listen, I post because it’s my…

Hey. Who killed the world?

There’s a sadz in the world. People. Humanity. A collective. I’ve had to take a “news hiatus” because the state of people makes me so very, very sad. Makes me triggered. Makes me angry. And, that’s how the cycle worsens. I had the unfortunate incident of an assault upon myself yesterday by a completely unknown-t0-me assailant. I’ll be fine, but I thought I’d blog about it because in no Cosmos ever is violence or harassment against women ever okay. EVER. So, I’d posted on Facebook about it. I’d also *not* posted on Facebook about three times previously to that before…

Avocation Diversion, Say What?

#HAWMC Day 22: Hobbies Running and 3PM dance parties are some of our favorite hobbies at WEGO Health. Tell us, what are YOUR hobbies? Love to crochet? Can’t stop collecting rocks? Take photographs of everything? Share your favorite past times. Well, I don’t run. Like, ever. ‘Cept, I suppose, if it was the zombie apocalypse…then I would only have to run faster than someone else. Could happen. Otherwise, you’ll find me and my zombie-target blind dog in the corner eating our last meal. Hobbies. I was trying to think of something other than the scrapbooking I’ve mentioned only eleventy-billion times…

The Real “Key” to Happiness

#HAWMC Day 2: Key to Happiness What do you think is the key to happiness? Is it being able to overcome a hard time? Laughter? Maintaining a positive attitude? Tell us what you think and why. I’ve worked really hard over the  past several years to understand the actual question. I believe it’s really a lead-on question…but it uses the wrong word…the trick is in finding and understanding which word is the wrong word. Is it “happiness”? Some people have blogged about happiness as a Webster’s Dictionary definition. Some people have shared articles with lists of what you should or…

#HAWMC Day 11: Giggity-Giggity

#HAWMC Day 11: “Date Night. We’ve seen some posts from Health Activists on dating tips when you have a chronic illness. What tips do you have for those looking for the one fish in this big pond?” When I’d met my husband, I didn’t know I was sick. When I’d told my husband I was sick, I was pretty sure that there might exist, however small, a possibility that our relationship may come into question. He proposed to me three weeks after I told him. So, I get to put my own personal spin on the prompt by writing about maintaining “date…

I cried because it was awesome…

Y’know when you have that moment of “Omg, I will remember this FOREVER”? I had a whole weekend like that. True story. My husband had a union AGM this weekend…Friday and Saturday holed up with disgruntled people or those who wanted to help the aggregate collective of members doing…..I swear, I have no fucking clue what went on in that meeting. I was free to “live” for the weekend. He picked me up on Friday after his day-long conference and we went downtown to The Royal Oak, a pub eatery with yummy food, for dinner. We went to the hotel…

How I found my secret to life*…

*my life. Disclaimer. I haz one. So, I’m back from making a conscious choice to live outside for the past 10 days, family in tow, camping at one of the largest spiritual festivals in Canada, Kaleidoscope Gathering. Bat-shit crazy? Only if I didn’t learn anything from it! 😉 What did I learn, you ask? I learned the secret to life, of course. And I’mma gonna share it…because I can… First off!! RECAP!! Unicorns. True story. Rainbows. Unrelated true story. Heroes. True story. (…have you ever been hailed in the pale moonlight…) Smiles and giggles and laughter and sun and warmth…
