“Why is it that time goes so fast when we’re doing the things that make us happy, and so slow when we’re doing the things we hate?  It’s no wonder that the happiest people on earth never seem to age!”  ~M

Sorrow and loneliness…

Gone Away – SafetySuit

“Gone Away”

I think about life, and oh how it changes so fast
And oh how it’s so hard to last here waiting for something to give
I think about time, a luxury so hard to find
And I just can’t figure out why I wasted it all here without you
But I’ll be fine, and oh don’t you worry
Cause I’ll be fine, see I’m in a hurry to be
Gone away awhile, tell me all the things that I
I’ll be missing here in this old life man cause I just don’t know
I think about you, and all the times that we shared
And oh what a wonderful pair we made made it so far here we go again
I think about love, and oh what a beautiful song
And oh how it need to be sung here sing it so loud all the world can hear
I think I’ll be
Gone away awhile, tell me all the things that I
I’ll be missing here in this old life man cause I just don’t know
But I’ll be fine, oh don’t you worry
Cause I’ll be fine, see I’m in no hurry
No I’ll be fine, oh don’t you worry
Cause I’ll be fine, see I’m in a hurry to be
Gone away awhile, tell me all the things that I
I’ll be missing here in this old life man cause I just don’t know

The results are in!

I wanted to share this again, as it’s been almost exactly as year since I last did this. I ended up losing 25 lbs total by continuing to eat this way and I still feel amazing. If you want a healthy eating plan that really works, please try this. I promise you that you won’t regret it. 😉

Putting My Feet in the Dirt

Well, as many of you know, I have been participating in the Whole30 program over the last month.  For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s a diet program which mainly consists of eating fruits, vegetables, and meat for 30 days.

It worked so well for my family and I that we have decided to continue eating this way on a regular basis.  We all feel so much healthier and have a lot more energy.  My husband had been dealing with skin rashes for over a year now, and those have been completely eliminated.  And I had been suffering from lifelong digestive issues, and have found that I am free of the issues I used to have.  But just to give you a little more in-depth knowledge before you go and jump on the bandwagon, I wanted to give you some pros and cons for this diet…

June Writing Prompts

writing2

I can hardly believe it’s already June, where does the time go?  This month I decided to get *my girls involved once again, and so many of these are ideas are taken from the minds of an 8 yr old and a 16 yr old.  They always come up with some great prompts, and so I’m glad I asked them for their help.

If you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them…

To begin, settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones.  Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer.  Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below.  Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!  Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.

I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you can write about anything you like.  And don’t be alarmed if what you’ve written doesn’t quite make sense.  The whole idea behind doing this exercise is to get your mind ready and working so that you can begin your day.  Just think of it as exercise for your brain, and once you’ve done your ten minutes of writing, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the rest of your day.

As always, I will be writing and posting over on my other blog, which can be found here. So please come visit me if you get a chance!  😉

Have a great month of writing everyone!  ~M xo
