Reflections on Life Thus Far

My life. My story: Exploring mental health, spirituality, meditation & random thoughts I have

What Am I Doing? lol


Okay, I’m supposed to be doing my “learning narrative” for my portfolio workshop I attend on Mondays but instead I’m wasting time on Polyvore! I’ve got a ‘to do’ list with very little checked off. What is it about homework that makes me procrastinate? Polyvore is a big waste of time but it’s more fun than thinking about what I learned from a memorable learning experience.

What are you doing this St. Patrick’s Day weekend?

FYI-St. Patrick was originally British but got captured or taken to Ireland. I heard it on CBC radio this morning on one of the morning programmes.

  1. we are going to visit new people we met, going to their home for dinner, i’m so nervous, i really don’t want to go.

    • That’s good though isn’t it? I mean I thought you wanted to meet new people? I’m sure the experience will be better than you imagine. Just remember to breathe!

    • Oh, I’m sorry. Your friends will likely understand though if you tell them. I understand the social phobia since I have had that too but most people turn out better than we think. It is only the desire to be perfect or “normal” that gives us undue worry. Well that is what I have found anyway. If you be yourself and don’t hold unrealistic expectations you will not be so stressed. My biggest problem is remembering everyone else is struggling too in their own way. It’s better to be in the moment so we aren’t focused on ourselves so much. I hope that isn’t offensive of me to say. These are just things I’ve found to be true for me. {HUGS}

      • It’s not offensive at all thank you so much. I just got back from their place, I missed this before I went but, it went really well. I let them know my food limitations before I went, so I didn’t have to stress at what they would make that I can’t eat…she was great about it. I let them know about the frequency when I got there, and that I have PTSD, I don’t usually do that right up front but it eased my stress, and we had a great night!

        There was no judgement. I’m just so used to being judged, by the parents and some others that it’s what I hear in my mind. My Hubby reminded me that I’m probably hearing the fathers voice…he was right.

        I’m almost overwhelmed with their kindness. 🙂

    • I’m glad your dinner went well with your new friends! People are usually good when we give them a chance. It’s when we show up with our mind made up that things deteriorate-or at least it’s been that way in my experience. So I try to not form expectations but it is hard not to have them at all. I’m glad you recognized it was your father’s voice in your head giving you the worry. Are your new friends close by?

  2. No big plans, just basically stay at home and away from holiday revelry. Had a bike ride of seven miles today, that was nice, weather is unfortunately colder. I have a couple of books and a couple of movies, if I find the time for them. Trying to catch up some on reading blogs. Did some blog work earlier today. Just chillin, not able to focus much on stuff that needs to be done.

    Good and healing thoughts to you.


    • Wow, you get lots of exercise on your bike. I’m not very inclined to go out but try to when the weather is nice. Guess I could go out when the weather isn’t so great but I just don’t enjoy it. We are supposed to be getting snow on Tuesday or Wednesday where I live! Not happy at all about that 😦

      Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂

      • Hi,

        Oh it took me a long time to get up to several miles. I just started slow, like a mile or two and that was what I could manage for several years and then tried longer rides. I think that my longest ride so far was 13 miles in one day, with lots of stops. I have a new bike and it is a much smoother ride and takes less work, so I will be doing more than I could with the old bike.

        Happy St. Patrick’s to you too. Good and healing thoughts to you.


      • That’s still very good! Thanks for the St. Paddy’s wishes. Hope your’s was fun if you celebrated.
