Life with Diabetes

It's World Diabetes Day today. I had the displeasure of being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2016.

For now,… Continue reading Life with Diabetes

And when you want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

One more day to my birthday! Whoop whoop! I made it through another year and I am so grateful this past year. Not only did I make it but I grew. No, I did not grow wider physically for once (Yipee!).

“The things you own end up owning you.” Joshua Fields Millburn

I often find myself getting irritated when other people misplace my stuff. Mondays are the worst because my helper comes in on that day and she tends to place stuff in the nearest hidey hole. My boyfriend also pointed out to me that I am so protective of my stuff. Naturally I was very defensive… Continue reading “The things you own end up owning you.” Joshua Fields Millburn
