(Tweet) Worrying about the Past

Why do we worry about the past when we can’t even remember the weather last week? https://t.co/k3Z8Hk85Lp #health #wellness — Changing Wellness (@SayWellness18) December 27, 2015 I was just thinking about this today as I wrote in my journal. This tweet made holding onto the past seem so senseless. Senseless …

(Quote) Journey Toward Forgiveness

journey toward forgiveness

It is not an easy journey, to get to a place where you forgive people. But it is such a powerful place, because it frees you. Tyler Perry

I feel as if my forgiveness journey has been delayed. As if I am sitting on the tarmac  waiting for the voice to say, “It is time to move on.” Instead, there isn’t an inner voice. Just the road ahead of you that is supposed to lead to forgiveness. Still, I keep waiting for that apology. How can we move on when the people who have hurt us do not apologize? That is the question I ask myself each day. 

What steps have you taken to move toward forgiving yourself and others who have hurt you?

DIY Video: Decorate Your Home with Wine Corks

Wine corks are not only evidence of a wine well spent, but actually an elegant way to decorate. Melissa Averinos, DIY Wine Corks

So Many Wine Corks…

I was looking for another way to recycle my memories of wines past. Lately, I have used them to fill a flower vase and to take up space in my silverware drawer. Melissa Averinos’ ideas appear easy to recreate. 

One point to consider is that many corks are now made from plastic. So, you may have to use sandpaper on the corks before you glue them together. Definitely view this video if you are looking for alternatives to your current wine cork storage

One Cat Household: New Cat

my new cat Mozeley two cat householdWell, I gave in to the urge to add a new cat to the house. As I said in my previous post, my sleep was suffering from having just one cat. I was focussing on the monetary benefits of a single cat household. It was nice to pay less for litter, food, and pet insurance.  However, I have always owned two cats at a time. So, this was a challenge for me.

After two months of interrupted sleep, we are now a two cat household again. (Thank you!)

I have finally found my Black cat, Mozeley, who is a “love bug” and meows for me to pick him up for cuddling. He even tries to climb up my back as I am washing dishes (scared the hell out of me the first time).

Anyone who owns a cat understands that cats can be aloof and unaffectionate. Mozeley’s love of human affection is like a well-fitted bra (as a size DDD, a fitted bra is better than gold). As much as I love his affection, he serves a bigger purpose: he helps Shinxley (2.5 years and 2.5 pounds fatter) to live an active life. 

It is also nice to come home to 2 sets of bright eyes at the top of my stairs each day.
