Evening Inspiration

I felt the need to send some inspiration out whether you are going to bed or waking up. Depending what part of the world where you live or your work schedule we all need a little inspiration. Whether we laugh or remember hey that’s okay things happen and I am so much better than that. Or if you are going through something I want you to know that it is safe here on WP to share your story. There is no judgement and I have seen none. I have learned so much from everyone and been encouraged. WordPress moderates this site in my opinion for us to feel free to share in healthy boundaries. I am glad I am here and I am glad you are too!

God Bless and have a great one!

See you for my next adventure!

Another Manic Monday

Why is it that Monday’s always seem like another tiring day? It seems as though the weekend went too fast. Well it does sometimes depending upon your life, your work schedule, family, and activities. But this past weekend we had to turn our clocks. We sprang forward, oh yippy!

I have felt the pain of losing sleep during daylight savings time. Now many people can object and say that could be related to my jobs, my health, unhealthy eating patterns in my past, weight, depression, etc. you name it. I even have worked night shift in the hospital for both time changes. Tell me what you think in the comments how you have dealt with the time changes in the past. As there is some debate right now regarding it.

I did some googling and found out that President Donald Trump supports a permanent daylight savings time. Fortune has this posted here http://fortune.com/2019/03/11/permanent-daylight-saving-time/

So I have read in a few places and have seen throughout social media today the today is NAP DAY. I like that! I found this article from CBS news online https://www.cbsnews.com/news/daylight-saving-time-health-risks-losing-an-hour-of-sleep-tips/

What I do know is that Monday’s come and Monday’s go. I will always think of that Bengals song “Manic Monday”. It was popular when I was young and it still sticks with me on any given Monday and now it is more of a joke to me than anything. I have been taught to have more grace as I have aged to the age of 49.


I do hope everyone had a fabulous day and is not as tired as we all usually are but go home and rest. And by the way it is okay to order out and give yourself a break once in a while. Happy Monday! Kathy.

encouragement from others

We all need a little encouragement every now and again in this life. That is one of the reasons I got hooked up with WordPress to begin with. Thanks to a fellow blogger I was just reminded of that yesterday. His blog was one of the first ones I followed on here two years ago and I would check him out. http://makeitultrapsychology.wordpress.com

I want to encourage each of you out there to check out other posts and comment on them. We can learn from others everyday. It is a great idea to get to know the others in our blogging community. Plus what a great way to learn from one another. What a great way for us to support one another. #bloggingfundamentals

I have been taking the helpful classes for blogging through WordPress’s own https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/.

I do suggest not taking “too” many courses at once. Actually pay attention to “how” many days each course is. Whether you are a new blogger or have been blogging for 2 years plus I feel you can learn something new or go back to your roots to spark something up. I have learned that from the many bloggers I read about here on WP.

During these courses I actually took notes to remind me of things for my knowledge of blogging. Hey they are right when they say “knowledge is power”. I also made folders in my email for each course so I could go back and if need be reiterate what I learned through the course. To be honest anything I have found about blogging has a folder labeled so I can check it out. I have downloaded some e-books in the past 10 days I plan to read and evaluate the information I want to take from it.

I am your basic girly girl who loves things with color and glitter. I love all kinds of pens, pencils, markers and colored pencils. I love notebooks and planners. I love organization. I love to color code things. Yes I am considered weird but a good weird and I am fine with that. But the way I do that helps me feel comfortable and organized. My brain gets too messy with all the information so I need to shelf things and put them in the correct order. For example, when I went back to college I used the same color pen for a class so I knew the time. I continued this for all appts. I continued this in my planner as well as my cell phone. Now I have an iPhone and have not used any new plan since last summer. I am having a hard time to keep up but I am working on a new plan. These things make me feel safe.

I have posted about the blogging courses in the past called Under Construction. Please check it out as I am always finding ways to learn and hear from others. I have also learned a few things from another blogger as well recently, go and give her a look https://jennyinneverland.com

One thing I would love to add to my blog would be a guest blogger. Right now I cannot afford to hire anyone but I think when first starting out someone should just help out and do it pro bono basically. We all need to start somewhere. As I learn more and continue on there is so much more you can do with y our blog and it is so amazing! I say, let us all shoot for the stars! Have a great week everyone and get out there and have an adventure! Kathy
