Stark Reality

Thoughts swirling downward in a spiral of doubt Below the fractured surface, darkness quietly rumbles It waits for the opportune moment to strike, Its serpentine tendrils squeezing around my tender flesh Held in a crushing vice grip, despair infects my mind Every trace of hope slowly trickles out, Scarlet rivulets fading into nothingness

Feline Friday #76 – Grateful for All the Kitties!

I’m very grateful to have all my kitties around and here with me. I often think about how different my life would be if I didn’t have them, and I can safely say it wouldn’t be for the better. I love my kitties so very much and love that I can be with them every single day. Please, give your fur babies some extra cuddles and pets for me; they deserve it!

Monday Motivation #68

If a person in your life is having a negative affect on you, as in they consistently leave you feeling down, stressed, anxious, etc., then it may be necessary to spend less time with them or completely cut off contact with them. Please don't feel guilty for doing this. You have to consider your own health and well-being, too. You have to do what you can to protect yourself from negative and toxic influences.

Monday Motivation #57

With a major holiday like Christmas coming up, it can be very easy to fall into stress and anxiety. But, at times like this, it's incredibly important to remember the true spirit of the holidays. They're meant to spread love and kindness, to give joy to others, and just to give in general. So don't let holiday related stress get you down; instead, focus on the true message of the holidays and fully embrace it. Enjoy the holidays for what they are, a time to give, embrace joy, and spend time with loved ones.

Feline Friday #55 – Fur Babies Are the Best!

This week, my family and I are in quarantine after being exposed to the terrible virus that shall not be named here. Accordingly, my anxiety has been off the charts lately, worrying about myself, my family, and us developing symptoms. But, our kitties are here with us, too. And as usual, they make everything better!
