Sometimes you need a moment to yourself to let your mind wonder out loud. No judgment here...Just thought provoking questions.
Worrying does not add a single moment to your life, apparently. In fact, it does the opposite. It won't make the hands of time move faster, or slower. Stressing has proven to be; which I learned by experience of course (and the internet), unhealthy for the body (surprise, surprise). I know we're going to stress-it's a part of life. Not all stress is bad, after all-it's what motivates us to strive for more; but over stressing is not okay. Don't let the world make you crazy.
So it's about 8am on a Saturday morning and of course I ONLY wake, dress and leave my house without (much of) a fight on a weekend morning for nothing but one thing-COFFEE! Avenue Cafe is a quaint little coffee shop on the corner of St. Charles and St. Mary, where they serve your usual coffee stuff- but they also have food made fresh to order to go along with all your coffee tweaking needs at all times of the day.
I've done a lot of reading and have observed that most bloggers have come on the scene, already transformed into "the phoenix" power house, business guru that everyone wants to work with and be. But what about Jean? The years of "silence" in-between being a nobody and becoming a little more than a "nobody", where you grind and work your ass off making mistakes and wasting money as you "figure it all out"?
if you've just been dealt an unexpected, devastating blow-just power through by keeping busy and thinking on things that are helpful to you instead of your losses.
We're not where we would like to be, but damn it-we're on the way; And we're going to make the journey a stylish, adventure-filled one, along the scenic route.
Here, you'll find things that inspire, that encourage you to self reflect and spiritually heal, that help you not only maintain, but thrive. This is a place specifically designed with the "single, bitter, struggling mom" and the fresh-meat 20-something, in mind. (Be honest.) For a long time, I hid the most beautiful parts of myself away for fear of having to "rise to the occasion", until I realized- that, that was exactly why I am who I am. I am not my circumstances, but a sum of my actions from there. And I am here to inspire and create.
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” ― Aldous Huxley
The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place" --Barbara De Angelis
