January Check In

I just wanted to do a quick blog and check in on everyone! Yesterday was my birthday, the big 40...but it is all good. Although it feels like I got here too fast. I have lots more to do though, so looking forward to another 40 years!

How is everyone's January shaping up so far? We are pending some sketchy weather ourselves tomorrow, and well Tennessee is messed up with seasons, we have them all in one day often. The state shuts down I tell you!

Keep on plowing through you guys, HEAD UP, SHOULDERS BACK and YOUR EYES ON YOUR DREAMS!

Welcome 2018!

Sending everyone many blessings in 2018!!

I know many people had a rough 2017, I had some tough times too. We all hope 2018 brings better stuff than 2017 did. However, let us remember our focus, intentions, choices and reactions have a HUGE impact on what happens to us as well!

This year I am really trying to focus my intention in the AM to really get my day out to a loving start. I am ALWAYS up about 10 minutes past the time I should have gotten up, so rushed and late for work. Which honestly, I have accepted, mostly. I really am a night owl, it is the way it is and not a person who loves to be woken up. I woke nights and overnights for years, I love it and am so alive at night. But now I am a 9am-6pmer, which is OK I can sleep in super late, but does it really work?

So HOW do you manage to have a focused intention building morning when you are that person?! I have tried many things, but my will power for it just sucks you guys. I may revisit the Miracle Morning process, but shoot I can write it all down and say I will do it and give myself all these speeches. But then the AM comes and I am like NOPE NOT TODAY.

Any friendly advice welcome, and in the end, maybe I just have not figured out the right motivator for me, or I just am not getting enough sleep at night.

I mean I used to work 530 am until way too many hours into the night, and it burnt me out. But I don't do that anymore, so I cannot use that as an excuse and if I can get up and be at this job for someone else at 530 and work until 7 at night 5 days a week, IF I DID THAT, why the hell can I not do it for my self????

Blog Thoughts

Got some thoughts brewing, really motivated to get off my creative arse! Thinking do I keep pushing through using this blog, which I do love, it needs some improvements no doubt, and it would help if I was more consistent. But should I re work a whole lot or just focus on what I got, new address new blog or just refocus and keep going. I love the history here, but I do get bored with the lay out, the colors and just need some jazz. But maybe that jazz is just decent content, what a thought!

Creamy Chicken Chili

I thought I would share my recipe for the chili I made back in October, since it was apparently good people said. I also must admit, I liked it! And I am a pretty picky eater.  ENJOY and please let me know what you think if you make it!

Today I won...

Hello!!!! I always plan to blog WAY more than I ever do, like i write blogs in my head when I cannot sleep at night, but never actually then put them here, where I should. really at night when I cannot sleep I should just open the app up and blog, but I do not, I do try really hard to sleep but, yeh I digress!

Short Story, it is hard to blog sometimes! 

BUT today I won the chili cook off contest we had at work for our annual chili cook and Halloween contest. SERIOUSly surprised and impressed with myself as this is my first time ever making chili of any kind in my life! I made a creamy chicken chili recipe I found off pinterest and added some zingy flare as when I cook (as rare as that is), I do like to get experimental!

Won a gift card, so that was nice. :)
