• Anxiety,  Fear,  Halloween

    Failure and pity-parties: A confession.

     

    I’m not good at keeping up with things. I forget to take my vitamins, I forget to thaw chicken for tomorrow’s dinner, I forget to work out, I forget to call friends. I make to-do lists that I forget to look at, and sometimes I’m so unmotivated I write down easy tasks that I can cross off to feel more productive: “Get the mail”, “clean off your desk”, “poop”.

    I get easily overwhelmed and then the dreaded anxiety kicks in. My mom is the exact opposite. She has a specific day and a specific time of day for the things she needs to do. She doesn’t even think twice about it- she just does stuff, then still manages to get dinner on the table before 6:30!

    So I dropped the ball on Inktober…

  • Anxiety,  Fear

    Mirrors are my greatest fear…

    I’m an adult (well, that might be a little debatable) who still gets scared of the dark. Hallways, closets and under the bed are all full of monsters just waiting for me to turn my back. Welcome to my nightmare… don’t run; it only makes them want to chase you MORE. (this is a slider image, click the arrow to view full comic)

     

    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  • Anxiety,  Love

    I just want to be home alone with you…

    Michael and I rarely go out. We’re not big on crowds, we like cooking at home and we honestly just love our alone time together.
    But every now and then when we don’t feel like dirtying up dishes, we will go out to eat at a sit down restaurant.

    Inevitably by the end of dinner, we cannot WAIT to get home. When we…

  • Thoughts on Death

    Expired.

    I think a lot about the fact that our time here is limited. Sometimes it makes me shrink into a corner and cry. Sometimes I look at death passively, like observing a bee pollinating a flower.
    Death is a very difficult thing to come to terms with in your life. I wasn’t exposed to it very often growing up, now it feels like it’s all around me. I guess that’s the way it is when you get older, you know more people, everyone else grows older with you, and before you know it you have to buy a new funeral dress because your old one expired… just like everything else.

    Give your loved ones some extra time and attention today; they’re not going to be around forever.

     

    Now that I’ve made you all nice and sad, have a great Hump Day!
