It's been a crazy couple weeks, which means I've neglected this blog a little more than I would like, but I'm back! All three or four of you who read this are hopefully excited about that. And you know what else? I learned something in this last couple weeks. I spent so much time stressing… Continue reading 196. How to… let it all out.
Sometimes, when the unexpected happens, the best we can do is make a glass of lemonade with the lemons we've been handed. Sometimes, things simply aren't as they seem... or at least not as we expect them to seem. And that's okay. That's probably a lesson each of us has learned a few times (and… Continue reading 194. How to… look at things differently.
Some people need to learn when to say no. Me, actually. I'm one of those people. Lately... and most of the time, if I'm completely honest, I'm burning the candle at both ends. Real life, Second Life... doesn't matter. I think that little switch in my brain - the one that tells me to sit… Continue reading 137. Sometimes when it’s broke, you can’t fix it…
Let's be honest here: Sometimes, the biggest, adultiest thing that you're going to be able to do in a day is get yourself out of bed in the morning. And you know what? If that's you today, or if it was you yesterday... if you have a sneaking suspicion that it could be you tomorrow… Continue reading 123. How to… do your best.
Guys, it's finally happening. "What's happening, Nova?" I'm glad you asked! I have a place! Things in the real world are looking up and finally starting to straighten out again. Now, in the Nova!verse, that doesn't necessarily mean that things will stay calm, but I have learned to take that as nothing more than a… Continue reading 102. How to… transcend the travesties.
First off - 100 posts, guys. It may actually be 101... I THINK there's one in there that I didn't number, but in any case... yay! Now that I have the celebratory happy dance out of the way... Sometimes, we just have bad days. What's worse about them is that sometimes they are just bad,… Continue reading 100. How to… look for the bright side.
I feel like I've dropped the ball lately. Like my head would fall off and roll away if it wasn't attached to my shoulders. I can sit here and try to make excuses about it all day long... but that's time consuming, and excuses don't really get us anywhere, do they? But there's a second… Continue reading 86. How to… take care of yourself.
There comes a point in time when you have to admit to yourself that something somewhere has gone horribly wrong and you can no longer pull the metaphorical blanket over your head like you did when you were a little kid scared a monster would come out of the closet. That worked when you were… Continue reading 54. How to… reclaim yourself.
I used to panic really easily. Usually if there was conflict, or if someone I know was upset with me. For the longest time, I thought it was just anxiety getting the best of me. But then I realized that wasn't quite right. I realized that these responses were conditioned because people in my life… Continue reading 49. How to… Rebuild.
Sorry guys. I can't help it. This song has been stuck in my head since I saw the graphic on this t-shirt dress last night so that's that. I've had a migraine since Friday and at one point was certain that I was going to die. At another, I was certain I would do some… Continue reading 38. How to… shine some light…
