I write what I like…
Category Archives: Community
Wow, and here I thought I wrote my last post a few days ago. It’s been a week? My, my, my the time is a flying by. Well, it’s going to keep on whistling by me for a while.
My daughter is in the school musical, which means late days practicing and I’ve been even more active with my workouts and going out a bit more, so when the dust settles in my neck of the woods, I’m spending time with my daughter and just relaxing.
Here’s hoping I get a chance to post more very soon. I have a ton of pictures to upload; food related and Bella, our new puppy.
In other news…
Earlier today I stumbled upon the website, Minimalist Beauty. It really caught my eye since the writers approach to health and wellness is very similar to my own. She has some great articles about hyperpgimentation, so I’ll be curious to see what she has done. I must say, that I am so glad that my hyperpigmentation issues are quickly becoming a distant memory.
According to Meyers Briggs, my personality type is INTJ. Over the years, I’ve taken the test a few times and, based on my answers, it always list me as INTJ. I didn’t take the test to determine who I am. I’ve been me for 44 years, if I have not figured it out by now, something is really wrong, don’t you think.
INTJ’s are supposedly one of the rarest personality types out there. making about 2% of the population. Women who have this personality are even more rare, supposedly less than .08%? Imagine that. It does make me wonder how they come by these numbers? I’m guessing it’s based on who takes the test and then, you have to hope they’re being honest, right?
It wasn’t until recently that I actually read what my personality type is and my goodness did I have a good laugh, since it’s definitely me.
A few days ago, I stumbled upon this blog post about how to handle an INTJ. Yes… I can identify with a lot of the things listed.
I can also relate to the above list. My major pet peeves are excuses and lying. Please, just accept the responsibility and stop making excuses for your actions! I know I’m in for a pile of junk, when a person gives me a long-winded explanation for something they did wrong.
Acknowledge you were wrong (I do) and work on improving. If I know a person well, I’ll call them out on that brand of nonsense. Thankfully, I don’t know too many people that make excuses. They accept their actions, make the appropriate corrections and move forward.
Wow, where has the time gone? It seems like January just flew on by. There is so much that has been happening.
Let’s see… it looks like we’ll be welcoming another furbaby into our home. A dog! We should have the dog within the next week or so. It’s a dog that wasn’t wanted. If I had my pick, I would have chosen a Siberian husky.
Of course, I’ve been spending lots of time with my daughter and then there’ s a friend that has been going though a lot lately. I’ve known them since junior year in high school. They’re hurting I’m making myself available. Between bonding, work and just being there for someone in pain, it does not leave time for much else. My plate and cup are running over. 😉 Even though I haven’t been posting too much on here and my hand crafted site, I have been taking plenty of pictures. I just need to find to upload and post.
As if I didn’t have enough websites, I started another that focuses solely on natural healing. That site, won’t be updated a lot, and I will most likely post under a pseudonym. That’s nothing new, since I already do that with a few places where I’m paid to write; online and print publications.
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
King James Version (KJV)
I normally refer to the New American Standard Bible, but I must admit, that I love how this reads out much better than NASB’s version, which I’ve included below.
3 “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Despite the turmoil that is surrounding me at the moment, I must admit that I am at peace. Of course, that brings to mind the above passage… and I have to admit that it is so true.
So yes… through everything that is happening, my stress is low, and I am actually happy. Being a Christian, and an active follower of Christ, I know that has everything to do with the close relationship that I have with my heavenly father. If you don’t have that connection, what I might have just written, might come off as a bit off the rails, but trust me it isn’t. But you to can have that connection, all you have to do is believe and accept Christ into your own heart.
9 [a]that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
I wasn’t expecting to write this type of post, but I felt led to do so and I’m simply following that command.
If you have friended me on Facebook you know that yesterday I finally got around to creating and sewing my own capsule wardrobe. I posted a picture of my almost completed maxi skirt. I say “almost,” because I still need to add the hem, the elastic, and I think I’m going to add a small split to the back of the skirt. However, the bulk of the dress is finished.
It’s about time I started on that, right? I posted about doing that a few months ago.
The above video reminded me of Morris Day and the Time… colorful, wild and funky. I believe this is Bruno Mar’s latest video release and I must say, I’m loving the song and the style that is portrayed throughout the video. The color blocked suit jacket, shirt, purple socks, red and black boots. I’m definitely loving the color of Bruno’s suit jacket, after all it’s one of my favorite colors to wear.
And of course I’m loving Bruno, I paid attention to him as soon as he hit the music scene. 😉 I love the way he sings, his look and style.
In addition to the site that I set up for my daughter (she’s quite thrilled that she has her own paid domain I might add) I created another site where I’ll have detailed posts about my various hand crafted projects.
A site dedicated to my handcrafted adventures is something that I’ve thought about doing for years, but I held off since I really didn’t want to add another writing site to my “to do” list. However, recently I thought it was high time I get on with it and so yesterday, I finally made the move. I carefully selected the domain name and housed it under the same hosting provider as Celebrate Life.
Choosing a name that wasn’t taken, was a challenge. You see… the first two that I wanted were already taken. However, I must say that I do like the name that I have now. It’s short and sweet and clearly describes my handcrafted obsession.
In time, I’m sure I’ll write about it here, but until then I’m having fun creating a few posts and looking forward to challenge myself to visit old handcrafted techniques or even try something new.
What’s really neat, is the new domain has already been indexed by Google! How cool is that?
